Hi,

I have the GPM setup and working on the 2008 server (AD DC), but I have some limitations and I've installed the GPM on a 2012R2 also. at the first start, I've found the same content as on the 2008, it was replicated and I've added the policy needed (for IE10 / 11 proxy).

The question is: can I remove the GPM feature from the original server without losing the one on the 2012?

I can see that the gpupdate is not fully updating the proxy with both servers in place and I was thinking to leave only one.

For that you don't have to remove GPMC from 2008 server

You can edit IE proxy settings from windows 2012 R2 for all version of IE 5,6,7,8,9,10
IE 10 polices will be applicable to IE 11 as well
In fact you can create \ edit all of your existing GPO from 202 R2
If you have configured IE maintenance from 2008 GPMC, then you need to edit those polices from there as it can't be edited through win 2012 R2 GPMC.
either unlink those polices from there and create new GPO from 2012 R2 GPMC with user configuration\Preferences

Even if you remove GPMC from 2008 server, it will not delete polices, it will just remove management console

The IE maintenance was initially created on the 2008.
I could add the settings for the IE10 only on the 2012 so now I can only see them in the 2012.

everything I am unlinking in the 2008 is also unlinked in the 2012 so the idea would be to completely remove the ie settings from both servers and add them only from the 2012?

I had the possibility to add the new IE version from the 2012 but I can't see them in the 2008.

What I mean, unlink any GPOs with IE maintenance and create new GPOs on 2012 R2 with user configuration\Preferences to create new preference for IE 8, 9 and 10 as well
This will take care of IE maintenance as well
This will ensure that you will require only 2012 GPMC for managing all GPOs

Because your 2008 GPMC IE maintenance cannot be understood by IE 10 as MS has removed that from IE 10
Likewise win 8 \ 2012 GPMC do not understand IE maintenance of old windows 2008
IE maintenance is replaced with user configuration\Preferences
