GPO impacts after upgrading IE11 on 2008 R2 domain controller?

    Question

  • Hi. Our enterprise is running 3 x 2008 R2 domain controllers. Our client PCs run IE8 and we manage them via IE8 GPO. We are now in the process of upgrading to IE11. I'm not sure if upgrading IE11 on domain controllers will impact the IE8 GPO on the domain controllers. Please advise if there are specific recommendations to achieve this.

  • Hi, you will find the internet explorer maintenance vanishes. My suggestion is to remove anything from IEM while possible https://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/group-policy-removing-internet-explorer-maintenance-settings.html then upgrade and set things back in via preferences http://deployhappiness.com/internet-explorer-maintenance-replacements/ https://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/group-policy-internet-explorer-10-death-iem.html

  • Hi shankar-lakes,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, it seems that Explorer 8 Group Policy Preference items do not apply to users who are running Internet Explorer 11. As Alex mentioned, you may need to remove anything from IEM. And for Internet Explorer 11 GPO settings, you could refer to the articles below.
