PAC File GPO for IE 11

    Question

  • What is the best way to roll our a PAC file for IE?

    There are various guides but I'm having difficulty.

    I downloaded the ie 11 asdmx files on a 2012r2 server from here:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=40905

    The instructions say:

      • From an elevated command prompt, use the following command to update the inetres.admx file:
        • copy /y %WINDIR%\KB2841134\inetres.admx %SYSTEMROOT%\PolicyDefinitions\inetres.admx
      • From an elevated command prompt, use the following command to update the inetres.adml file for the targeted languages:
        • copy /y %WINDIR%\KB2841134\<LanguageCode>\inetres.adml %SYSTEMROOT%\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\<LanguageCode>\inetres.adml

    Well this didn't work as the files are protected, I had to take ownership and add permissions with icacls.

    After copying over the admx and adml files I was expecting to see some ie 11 options when I went to User Configuration / Preferences / Control Panel Settings / Internet Settings / New  - but did not.

    So I followed the first part of this:

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/askie/2015/10/12/how-to-configure-proxy-settings-for-ie10-and-ie11-as-iem-is-not-available/#

    I made an ou and put a 2012 server in there and applied the gpo.

    gpresult showed the gpo had been applied but the settings had not been changed. I'm logged in as the domain admin. I've tried rebooting.

    I also tried the reg edit at the bottom but gpresult does not show that that policy has been applied.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    gpresult showed the gpo had been applied but the settings had not been changed. I'm logged in as the domain admin. I've tried rebooting.

    I also tried the reg edit at the bottom but gpresult does not show that that policy has been applied.

    >>>I suggest you run GPresult /h C:\gpresult.htmland post it to us for further research.

    Best Regards,

    Jay

  • ADMX/ADML admin template files are not used by GPP (Preferences) at all...

    Perhaps a better article is this one:

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/askie/2015/07/17/how-can-i-configure-proxy-autoconfigurl-setting-using-group-policy-preference-gpp/

    I recommend you use the 2nd method "USING GPP INTERNET EXPLORE:"

    As noted in the article,

    Right Click on the Internet Settings object and select Internet Explore 10 [note: this Group Policy will also apply to IE11 clients. See kb https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2898604]


    Don [doesn't work for MSFT, and they're probably glad about that ;]
