With Windows Server 2012 R2 8.1 and a new version of RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) was provided.

The new RSAT GPMC this provides some (albeit minor) new features.

Important changes (in terms of GPPs):

“TCP / IP Printer” Preferences now support IPv6

The IP Address Range Targeting now supports IPv6

The “VPN connection” network options now support IPv6

As I reported in this post, in the generated XML file, a version number is stored. This entry specifies the minimum and maximum version number of IE for this XML file is valid.

Creating a temporary “Internet Explorer 10″ Preference, the entry max = “” in the XML file is written.

Consequently, the IE 10 Preferences are also valid for the IE 11!

This does not mean that automatically all new settings of IE 11 is included in the IE 10 Preferences.

ADMX settings for IE 11

For the 11 new IU Administrative Templates have appeared.

Should you a Central Store for ADMX templates your use, it is recommended to update this if necessary.

A good guide for this can be found here:

MVP “Jeremy Moskowitz” has created a “Pak for Internet Explorer”, which supports the Internet Explorer 11. This software offers additional features that are not possible with the regular Group Policy Preferences (eg hide all IE configuration tabs).

Internet Explorer Maintenance

Just like for the Internet Explorer For Mac is considered “Internet Explorer Maintenance is dead”. This CSE is extinct (quite rightly) and is no longer under the IE 11 available. Look also please the last post for the IE 10 at once.

Therefore continues to apply to the IE 11, you have to gather together the appropriate settings. In general, this results in a mix of:

Internet Settings – Group Policy Preferences

IEAK – Internet Explorer Administration Kit

Registry – Group Policy Preferences

If necessary, 3rd party tools (such as “PolicyPak”)
