Internet Explorer 11 enterprise mode logging server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have a write up for how to configure the server to use for logging EMIE sites from end users that are testing? It's mentioned that you can use one in the documentation, just not how to configure one beyond telling the clients where it is. I haven't found any documentation, and the only way I could retrieve the data off a machine so far was to use a forensics tool to open up the IECache and view the sites in there.

    Going to give it a try and see if I can get it working. Frustrating that MS didn't have a document for this day one...or at all.

    So I was finally able to get this running using the blog above. You have to edit the script if you copy-paste it from the page and remove the rogue "'s that aren't regular parenthesis, then make sure you have KB2956283 installed or else you'll just keep getting DEP exceptions thrown. Really frustrating that this wasn't all documented, but looks like we're rolling now.

  • Hi

    It needs a path to an http server that the users will have read/write access to. Once you've got such an url you either:
    Change the EnterpriseMode registry key value to Enable and include the path to logging e.g.for your localhost and a specific port it would be “Enable”=“http://localhost:13000”
    (if you just do "Enable"="" you enable Enterprise Mode but not the logging).

    Or
    Use Group Policy to enable and then change the options to include the path.
    Once enabled logging will begin when users toggle on Enterprise Mode from the menu.

    See:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn640690.aspx

    Does that help?

  • I already know how to setup all the other stuff, it's the data collection server I don't know how to configure. I understand it's just a webserver that accepts http POST requests and writes them out to a folder on said server, but I'm not a IIS engineer by trade, so what I'm looking for is how to configure the IIS site to receive the POST messages. I haven't found anything online as of yet.

  • I am at a loss with this as well. I setup IIS to try and capture the post messages however was only able to grab header information. Going to play around with it some more to see what I can figure out.

  • I have used this method from GroupPolicy.biz too and it works quite well, but I also wish there was some better documentation. I would rather log to a database, CSV or something else which I could apply filters to.

  • There is a solution that uses a ASP file that will just create a log file. That you can modify and tweak as you like and then import it directly into the Enterprise List Manager.
