another confusing enterprise mode thing RRS feed

  • Question

  • my enterprise mode list xml is in \\domain\netlogon. it has worked relatively consistently for a while.

    I have an internal site called http://imagingqa, with a page called http://imagingqa/documentimport.

    the main site needs to be in enterprise mode, the documentimport page needs to be in edge mode. previously, both needed to be in enterprise mode.

    my first attempt to achieve the new requirement was

    <domain exclude="false">imagingqa<path exclude="true">/documentimport</path></domain>

    but that didn't do it.

    so I added

    <docMode>
        <domain>imagingqa<path docMode="edge">/documentimport</path></domain>
          </docMode>

    and everything worked as desired. that was a few months ago.

    today, they asked me to do the same thing for http://imagingUA/documentimport.

    so I went into the xml, copied and pasted both "imagingqa" lines, changed "qa" to "ua", and incremented the file version number.

    1. if I open the new xml in the enterprise mode sites list manager gui, both the imagingga/documentimport and imagingua/documentimport show that they are set up exactly how I want them - the main site in "ie8 enterprise mode," and documentimport in "ie11 document mode."

    2. in the registry on the clients, the EnterprisMode/Currentversion number is the correct new version number. but http://imagingua/documentimport is still opening in enterprise mode (the QA version is still correctly opening in 'edge' mode, and Enterprise mode is greyed out under Tools so that I can't manually turn it on.)

    everything is set up the exact same for both QA and UA sites, and the clients are seeing the new file version, but they are not respecting the UA setup. what am I missing?

  • Don,

    I found it. higher up in my XML there was already an old additional "domain exclude=false" entry for imagingua by itself, which did not appear separately in the Enterprise Mode Site List GUI, but *did* have the affect of putting imagingua and all of its sub-pages into enterprise mode. once I took the old entry out, imagingua and /documentimport started working as desired.

  • I get this (but can't test it), is this what your XML looks like?

    <rules version="3">
      <emie>
        <domain exclude="false">imagingqa<path exclude="true">/documentimport</path></domain>
        <domain exclude="false">imagingua<path exclude="true">/documentimport</path></domain>
      </emie>
      <docMode>
        <domain>imagingqa<path docMode="edge">/documentimport</path></domain>
        <domain>imagingua<path docMode="edge">/documentimport</path></domain>
      </docMode>
    </rules>

    On another note, could it be that the QA server (or markup in the page) includes X-UA tags or doctypes, but the UA server does not?
