Controlling IE10 and 11 with Server 2008 non R2 Group Policy
Posted on 2014-09-11
Windows Sever 2008 non R2 domain controllers with 2008 functional level and clients run Windows 7.
A while back with auto updates IE 10 or 11 got installed on our client Win 7 XP machines. My domain has 3 versions of IE 9, 10, and 11. Probably not the best but its what I'm faced with.
I can control IE 9 easy enough but IE 10 and 11 I can't. From what I read IE Maintenance does not work with IE 10,11. I've downloaded with latest IE 11 ADMX and copied them over to the GP policy store.
I'm trying to start by setting a homepage but I also need to configure other settings like IE Intranet Zones. The DC's both run IE9. Should I bring them up date with IE11? Will this have effect on policy already configured for IE9?
