Enterprise mode not applying for MS Edge

    Question

  • I´m probably doing something wrong, not sure what it is. I´ve been working with this article

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt270205.aspx and I´m trying to set Configuration Manager Application Catalog page to automatically launch/change to IE11, but Edge still launches the page and it doesn´t work there.

    1. This is how my LABSEMSL.xml looks like:

    <rules version="1">
      <docMode>
        <domain docMode="edge">sccm<path docMode="edge">/CMApplicationCatalog/</path></domain>
      </docMode>
    </rules> 

    (the desired adress is http://sccm/ApplicationCatalog/)

    2. I set the policy "Allows you to configure the Enterprise Site list" point to \\filesrv\DATA\IE_EDGE\LABSEMSL.xml

    3. The config is set on user configuration and I see new registry appearing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main\EnterpriseMode fine

    Any ideas?
    - is user config supported too?
    - is unc path supported too?

  • I got it! The reason is, that unc path doesn´t work. I installed IIS and published xml there, and it started to work with both xml versions!

    So, http is required for this!

  • Is this a domain env or a local machine? Have you ever tried the computer config?

    If the registry appears, then it means the policy is applied correctly.. I'm not familiar with this XML file, probably something wrong in the XML?

    Personally, I would suggest you try in IE forum for more assistance

  • It´s domain enviroment. I would appreciate, if someone know this as a fact, how it suppose to work.

  • When I re-create the example, and add appcat.contoso.comm, and sccm/CMApplicationCatalog, using the v4 EMSLM tool, the XML looks like this:

    <rules version="6">
     <emie>
        <domain doNotTransition="true" exclude="true">contoso.comm<path doNotTransition="true" exclude="false">/travel</path></domain>
        <domain exclude="false" forceCompatView="true">fabrikam.comm</domain>
        <domain exclude="true">appcat.contoso.comm</domain>
        <domain exclude="true">sccm<path exclude="true">/CMApplicationCatalog</path></domain>
      </emie>
      <docMode>
        <domain docMode="edge">tar</domain>
        <domain docMode="edge">timecard</domain>
        <domain docMode="9">www.cpandl.comm</domain>
      </docMode>
    </rules>

    So, there seems to be some confusion about your understanding of the "edge" docmode vs. "open in Edge"

  • Thanks, you´re probably right. I use this same utility, but I cannot even list all those sites like you did in the picture. If I add a site, it will not apper in the list of GUI. But, let me continue to play around with this to be able to export similar xml like you have there.

  • I still don´t understand, how you get bigger xml file than I do. If I only use this manager, it will save only 6 lines in my xml, like it is in the first of my posts.

  • Is this xml correct, should it work? Because it doesn´t.

    <rules version="1">
     <emie>
              <domain exclude="true">sccm<path exclude="true">/CMApplicationCatalog</path></domain>
      </emie>
     < /rules>

  • what about this?

    <rules version="6">
      <docMode />
      <emie>
        <domain exclude="true">sccm<path exclude="true">/CMApplicationCatalog</path></domain>
      </emie>
    </rules>

  • Do you mean UNC path to retrieve the XML file by Microsoft Edge doesn't work?

    That's odd - UNC works fine for IE11 on Win7.

    I think that http is preferred anyway, since it's a bit less network traffic compared to CIFS/SMB.

    That´s right, at least in my case. I use it only for Edge, I haven´t used IE11 enterprise mode before.
