Enterprise mode Site list on DFS Share?

Q: Enterprise mode Site list on DFS Share?

Has anyone hosted the enterprise mode site list on a DFS share? We had some issues with HTTP, but figured out that hosting on a UNC path was more reliable. was wondering if DFS would be an option.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We are using Group Policy to issue an XML file with a list of sites for IE 11 to load in Enterprise mode.  We added our payroll company site because they were not compatible with IE 11, now they are ONLY compatible with IE 11.  I removed their
URL from the XML list over a week ago, but all company computers are still loading it in Enterprise mode.  I can have everyone turn it off manually, but the problem is they use so many subdomains that everyone would have to do it numerous times.  Why
is that happening?  I need to force this site and its subdomains to NOT load in Enterprise Mode.  It seems that when the URL was removed from the XML list it no longer forced it, but it also did not remove that setting.
 

A:Removing a site from Enterprise Model XML list for IE 11 does not disable enterprise mode for that site

Hi,
No event error doesn't indicate the policy is applied fine. If the new configuration didn't work, the most probably reason was the group policy was not applied.
You could rest your Internet Explorer 11 and then restart the compute to check the result.
If it still doesn't work, run "gpresult /h gpreport.html" command to saves the report in HTML format with the file name "gpreport.html" at C:\Windows\System32\ directory.
Open this file to check if this group policy was applied successfully.Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

(NOTE:  Links open in a new tab.)
In the TechNet article
here I see reference to a schema v.2 for the EMIE tool. It will apparently spit out the xml using the new version 2 of the schema. But the download link only goes to downloads for Win7/8 (schema v.1), and I cannot find any reference to where I can obtain
the Windows 10 version.
For example,
this article specifically references a Windows 10 version, where
this one references Windows 7 and 8.  Finding the Windows 10 version has proven impossible so far.
We have several sites which need to be opened in IE instead of Edge, and using our old Enterprise Mode site list is not working on our Windows 10 clients.
Current site list example:
<rules version="4">
    <emie>
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>
    </emie>
</rules>

Etc.
Reading about the
v.2 schema leads me to think that the output from the tool is incorrect.  The documentation suggests that the output for Windows 10 should be:

<site-list version="205">
  <site url="www.contoso.com">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
  </site>
</site-list>

Or am I missing something here?

We have a corporate Enterprise with IE11 on Windows 7. We are using Enterprise Mode instead of "open intranet sites in compatibility view" which is now unchecked.





We want sites to open in IE 8 Document Mode instead of the Edge Default which occurs when we uncheck the intranet site compatibility view.
We have the XML and Enterprise Mode Enabled and it is processing BUT the sites are changing from Edge to Document Mode 5 instead of 8?

I have tried ALL the document modes and even IE 8 Emulation and it doesn't matter which one we set, the sites are going to Document Mode 5, with the exception of Livemeeting.com which is opening in IE 8 Document Mode as it should.

Now we can set it manually in IE using the Emulation but it does not last the session.

<rules version="1">
  <docMode>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir1.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir2.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir3.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">livemeeting.com</domain>

The sites themselves have a DocType in them.

We are using the afore mentioned software and have an odd issue.
A lot of times when we add a site to the list and the export  to the XML the rules Ver will not update or it reverts to an older # and we have to select ?file,
 save to XML? several times to get the Ver to update correctly. Example below. 
Is there a fix for this?  OIr is it just a ?feature? 
We would expect that when we add the site and save it and then export it to the XML file that it will increment every time we add a new site?

I am looking for a good method for maintaining multiple site lists when using the EM site list manager. Right now I maintain four domains each with a custom site list and using the EM
console is clunky for this. It is designed more for a single domain and site list. There is the import/export feature but that isn?t easy to switch between lists and I am concerned about making a mistake. It would be ideal if the console could handle multiple
lists or profiles by viewing them in tabs or something. Has anyone found a good way to manage different site lists?

I've configured the Enterprise Mode site list as directed in the following article

Does it matter where I put the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager? Does it need to stay there?
I thought it wouldn't matter, and that I would just use it to generate an XML file.  Looking at the XML file, I'm not so sure any more. 
I've added one site so far, just to test.  Looking at the XML file I have a domain exclude and path exclude, but I don't see any information in them to denote what kind of emulation or document mode to use.  Is the system going elsewhere for this

I have a small question / issue when using Enterprise Mode.
We have enabled it using GPO by specifying both a site list and the Enable settings for manual override. This works fine but I don't know how to reset the manual override if somebody flicks the EM mode for a specific site.

I just want to tell IE to forget all manual overrides and apply the sitelist as delivered.
I tried to look in the registry, in the %AppData% fodler, even cleared the IE cache but IE still remembers the user overrides.
Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks, Nic.

A:Enterprise Mode site list and manual override

Hi Nic,
As the official documents said, this registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode] ?Enable? = ?? | {URL:port} can also be used to collect manual overrides. By configuring the ?Enable? key with a
valid URL and port, Internet Explorer will initiate a simple POST to the supplied address whenever a user enables or disables Enterprise Mode. This effectively helps customers crowd-source lists of compatible Web apps from their own users, which may decrease
triage and testing costs.
Approximately 65 seconds after Internet Explorer 11 starts, it looks for a properly formatted site list. If a new site list is found, with a different version number than the active list, Internet Explorer 11 loads and uses the newer version.

This is designed by default, and we cannot reset the by preventing the changes.

We may try to logon script to re-deploy the original site list to reset the site list settings.

Have there been any changes to IE that allow us to force an Enterprise Mode site list update without having to actually launch IE, wait up to 65 second, and then close/relaunch IE? We're running IE11 with Enterprise Mode on our Citrix VDIs (Win10 1703),
and this one issue is a major concern. I know that I can launch IE in the background as part of a logon script to accomplish this, but that's detrimental to the logon performance, so I'd like to avoid going down that road.
At this point, I would even settle for an accurate list of all
files and registry keys used by IEEM (outside of the two standard keys enabling it with the site list path and the site list version). I've been trying to exclude folders and registry keys in Citrix Profile Manager, but have had no luck. The initial launch
of IE, which goes to our Citrix Web site, never starts up in Enterprise Mode. We have to wait and then close/relaunch.

We have begun to pilot Windows 10 Enterprise in our environment.  As part of this, I've created copies of the GPOs that point IE11 to the Enterprise Mode Site List.  The new copies use a WMI filter so that it applies only to Windows 10 clients. 
Then, I created a schema v.2 version of our Enterprise Mode site list so that I could tell clients not only to run certain sites in IE8 Enterprise Mode, but to open them in IE11.
If I browse to the sites in Internet Explorer 11, Enterprise Mode works as expected; however, if I browse to the sites in Edge, it doesn't work.  Instead, I just get various compatibility problems from the page not rendering correctly, to getting a
"your browser is incompatible" message, to not having the plugins or ActiveX controls needed available.
I thought the whole idea of schema v.2 was to be able to have sites load in either Edge, IE11, or to run in Enterprise Mode with no preference?  How can I get sites to forcibly open in IE11 when needed?
By the way, I've already checked group policy results and verified my Windows 10 test client is picking up the new v.2 Enterprise Mode file and not the old v.1 one.

I have a web application which is not Edge compatible & when launched in IE11 displays badly formatted and skewed text. I've found manually adding the site URL to Compatibility View Settings resolved the messy text issue and I know through use of
EMSL we can force sites to open in IE11 even when attempting to browse with Edge.
I need to have it set so that the site URL is automatically applied to all users in Compatibility View by default so that they don't have to manually add it themselves. My understanding is that Compatibility View is an emulation of legacy IE8 settings. I
know that the EMSL is recognising our site correctly because it forces opening in Edge - so we know its being picked up,  but I've tried setting the URL in an EMSL to IE7 & IE8 compatibility mode, but the text issue still persists.
Can someone please help with automatically applying Compatibility View for users for this site? Below is an example of what I've tried. The website is in the format "hostservername:portnumber"; I've tried just the host server name without the port

I am testing a new Enterprise Mode configuration for a new Windows 10 v1607 configuration. I am familiar with using  Enterprise Mode in IE11 on Win8.1 and am now testing using it for the interaction to open specific sites in IE11 vs Edge on Win10. I
have the newest version of the Site list manager and am creating the v2 schema.
I am noticing that the site list only updates when IE11 is open, the documented process is "IE waits 65 seconds and then checks the local cache for a newer version of the file from the server." I notice that if I only open Edge and use Edge, the
site list doesn't update, it seem sto only update when IE11 is opened. This process works correctly, however what I am wondering about is the scenerio where our end users are only using Edge, and don't open IE11 very often or at all. Does this mean there site
list is never going to update?
We are trying to move people to use Edge, so as more people start using Edge more and IE11 less, want to understand if those people are giong to stop getting site list updates, so if we configure something to open in IE11, it won't actually work unless they
manually open IE11 to get trigger the site list update.

We have a dedicated IE11 Enterprise Mode server hosting the site list xml file and it's all working nicely. If there's ever a problem with the server/connectivity etc the browser has the last version cached.


My question is where is the site list cached and is it per user or computer?

The reason I need to know is that we have a Citrix environment we are upgrading to IE11 and want to know if we cache the latest when creating the vdisk, will it be cached for all users or will they always download a new copy with all the bandwidth it will
entail?

A:Enterprise Mode IE11 Site List Not Updating on Client...

Hi,
Here is some information that should be helpful:
Quote:
"
Approximately 65 seconds after Internet Explorer 11 starts, it compares your site list version to the stored version number. If your file has a higher number, the newer version is loaded. And please note: After this check, Internet Explorer 11
won?t look for an updated list again until you restart the browser.
To make sure your site list is up-to-date; wait 65 seconds after opening Internet Explorer and then check that the
CurrentVersion value in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode\ registry key matches the version number in your file.
If CurrentVersion is not set or is wrong, it means that the XML parsing failed. This can mean that the XML file isn?t there, that there are access problems, or that the XML file format is wrong. Don?t manually change the
CurrentVersion registry setting. You must make your changes to your site list and then update the list using the import function in the
Enterprise Mode Site List Manager tool.

Hi,
This should be the implementation guide to IE11 enterprise mode list.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/check-for-new-enterprise-mode-site-list-xml-file


My main question: in IE11, using F12 you see only document mode (Edge, IE10, 9 ...) but in Enterprise mode list, you can see
other options (screenshot). That's confusing. Why these enterprise modes AND document mode? What is the difference and why does the client only have document mode? Also what means each option and what logic is there to implement, f.e. first enterprise mode
then document mode, then in document mode first IE8 or IE10 ...?

Another question:
I do not have a local xml, when we look for xml, it points to \\domain\netlogon\ienterprisemode.xml
When I check Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKU:$using:SIDOfUser\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode").currentversion I do see a version. Where is this version then? Does that make sense?

Please advise.

- pages not in the site list work fine (websites accessed trough proxy as well as intranet sites)
- the problem is limited to the current user account, reboot/logoff/run IE as another account resolves the problem
- resetting IE settings and following gpupdate solves the problem
- clearing browser history/temp etc. has no effect
IE version is 11.0.9600.18204 - 11.0.28.
Is anyone experiencing the same issues or has any suggestions how to figure out whats the cause?

Hello,

We have a site which runs absolutely fine on IE 8.
With IE 11 we are running it under Enterprise Mode.

We are noticing an issue when using reports created using Report Viewer Control.
The reports uses asynchronous requests, so when moving between records the page doesn't reloads.

The issue is that when using next button while moving between records, the user agent details changes.

Sometimes it shows 

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)

and sometimes

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

The first one is what is expected considering the site is running under Enterprise Mode.

Any help is appreciated?

Hello,
I'm currently in the process of testing/deploying IE11 in our environment and I've begun testing on the IE11 Enterprise Site List manager.
I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO per the article below.  HTTP, Local Network, Local File. (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Dn640699.aspx)
In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine.
It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file, and I was curious what the best options are and why?  Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits/downsides to each?
Here's the options that I can see using:
1. HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file.
2. Local Network (UNC) - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location.
3. Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package/application when updates to the list are required.
Could anyone please point me towards some articles, etc, explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other?  I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option #2 because it doesn't require us to maintain
an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method, or benefits to going with another method.
Thanks!

Hi All,
We are planning to upgrade Windows 7 to windows 8.1. As a task before upgrade, we following Microsoft article to deploy Enterprise Site Discovery to collect necessary IE information.

Collect data using Enterprise Site Discovery
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn833204.aspx
In the link above, Microsoft provided SCCM Report Sample ? ActiveX.rdll and SCCM Report Sample ? Site Discovery.rdl. I have imported the two templates to SQL reporting service but getting error when generating report.
My questions is if I need to modify SCCM Report Sample ? ActiveX.rdll and SCCM Report Sample ? Site Discovery.rdl. or I can direct import the templates  and generate reporting after connecting to correct datasoure.
Thanks in advanced.


Best regards,

Robert Li

I setup a GPO that uses a global sites list for enterprise mode for our domain.  The first time we all launched IE it went and got the list and everything looks good.  Since then I've added 3 extra sites to the enterprise sites list, but none
of the clients seem like they are re-checking the list to see if its been updated because the new sites I added aren't showing up in enterprise mode, only the original ones I first added.  If I open the sites list it shows the xml version is still 1 but
the rules version is 4.  I read online the browser doesn't check for a new sites list until 65 seconds after its been open, but its been like 7 hours and it still hasn't updated.  Anything I could check?  Thanks

Hi, I need some help removing the Mcafee Site Advisor Enterprise via the Mcafee EPO 4.5. We created a batch file designed to remove the Antivirus agent from the local PC's problem is it removes the agent but not the Site Advisor. This change would need to be deployed to about 150 PC's in an active directory domain. All computers in the domain are running Windows 7 64 bit OS'. Can anyone help with this issue as I am pulling my hair to get this to work. Any ideas will be much appreciated!

Hello,
Would someone be able to confirm that IE in a Compatibility or Enterprise Mode will only affect how IE displays web pages and will not change security settings like TLS? We are working to understand the impact to our customers when we switch to the TLS 1.2
standard for PCI compliance.
Thank you kindly.

hello
i've set "Enterprise mode" with a share central file xml implemented in a GPO.
I've build the xml file with the last updated "EMIESiteListManager".
60 web applications are set in the XML file and they are running as intended with the right compatibility settings.
But I have one strange behavior for one application.
for example:
I have set www.trpf.com as IE5 document mode and
www.trpf.com\srt as IE8 document mode.
the results are:
www.trpf.com\srt is rendered as IE8 but
www.trpf.com is also  rendered as IE8 where it would be IE5 ?
other web apps like www.trpf.com\xdf are also rendered as IE8  ?
I have missed something ?
Thank you for your help

A:Enterprise mode and Document mode

Hello jeanluc_69,
What do you mean about the sentence ?set www.trpf.com as IE5 document mode and
www.trpf.com\srt as IE8 document mode??  Set in the code?
Based on my test, if I use the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager to add the sina.com.
And then add it to the registry. The website www.sina.com will show as Document mode 7.

If I turn on compatibility mode manually in IE11 it correctly detects the existence of a DOCTYPE tag in the html and either uses IE7 or IE5 document mode. It is happily using IE7 mode as we do have a DOCTYPE tag on our internal webserver.
It I use an Enterprise Mode site list to choose IE7 Enterprise mode or IE7 Document Mode, it always uses IE5 document mode, regardless of the DOCTYPE tag.  While we transition, the default for our internal sites need to
be in IE7 mode, but IE5 is breaking our sites.
Can anyone else confirm this behavior or know how to make it not use IE5 document mode?

Is there a way to share contact lists with other users in Microsoft Outlook? We are in multiple sites across the country and all would be done online. Any thoughts?

If you're running Outlook in the MS Exchange setup configuration, you should be able to share the Contacts in a specific mailbox by using the Permissions tab under Properties for the Contacts folder.
