Hello, i would like to upgrade internet explorer 8 to the latest version 11 on 2 rdp servers  2008 R2(nlb).
Users are using roaming  profiles.
Can i expect some problems?Important is that there  will be no changes from security settings.
Therefore i use now  GPO settings applied to both rdp servers, i'll install the admin template 11.0.0.0 for Internet explorer 11 so that i can remain the settings after the upgrade.
I will use installer mode before perfoming the upgrade and investigate that there aren no IE processes running also.
Thanks for advice

IE 11 should be available via Windows updates, no need to install any other way or change to installer mode. If it isn't already installed, your system probably isn't up-to-date anyway, so I suggest you also install the other updates.

If something shouldn't work, you can remove it again via Control Panel, Programs and Features, view installed updates, and then selecting IE 11 and uninstall.

Although there should be no issues with IE 11, there can be some old applications that require an older version of IE, so you must make sure there are no such old applications left.

Hello Rindi, thank you for the comment but i believe there is some preparation to do about the GPO settings for example installing the administrative template for IE11...Can you also read my second question i posted for any further details?Thank you

I don't know about GPO. But that doesn't really have much to do with the installation of IE. It's more for the settings.
