I have a 2008r2 server and about 15 Windows 7 clients. This particular company just signed up with athenahealth which is a cloud based platform that requires several different options in IE configured (pop up blocker/trusted sties/etc.). I want to use group policy preferences to set this up, but as you know 2008r2 only supports up to IE8 natively. From what I've read I can use RSAT from a Windows 8 machine to configure these group policy preferences. The problem is that the client does not have any windows 8 machines on their domain. Is there a way to do this remotely from my office with Himachi and a virtual machine? I setup a windows 8.1 virtual machine but I get a pop up because it's not part of a domain. Any ideas on how I can do this?
