IE11 no History or Cookies


Robert Madrian

Question

Hello,

I use XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR CU3 + PVS 7.15 LTSR CU3 and have the Problem that with Internet Explorer 11 there is no history or cookies are available  (AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache)
with Edge everthings works - I have read some posts (https://www.carlstalhood.com/citrix-profile-management/) and applied some settings but no luck...

 

it seems that IE11 on Windows 10 with UPM doesn't work as expected?

 

for any help I would be appreciated

 

robert

Add the following folders under Mirroring:

·       AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCookies 

·       AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies 

·       AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache 

Note : The “Process Internet Cookie files on logoff” policy needs to be enabled

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/profile-management/current-release/profile-management-1808.pdf

 

for history you may also need to change attributes :

%SystemRoot%\System32\attrib.exe +h +s +r %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\History

Hi,

 

is this issue resolved?. 

 

We've got a simmular issue with Windows 10 1803 and the latest VDA/UPM 1811. 

 

No cookies are saved.  and the strange thing, not even within the same session, if we close the browser, or use a second instance.

If i disable the UPM profile the cookies are working again with the local profile, of even when using a roaming profile.

 

for upm i have the mirror folders in place, and "process internet cookie files at logoff" 

 

i've also disabled active write-back because this was giving me errors in the upm logging

Hi, from Win10 1709 onward everything cookie related to IE is now solely stored within the webcache database and unless you are correctly storing this file, you will no longer get the cookies between sessions. This will increase the size of the webcache database and it'd be interesting to know what your typical webcache size is? 

 

Interesting blog too on "Process Internet cookie files on logoff"...https://www.avanite.com/blog/stale-cookies-citrix-profile-management. Avanite are a Citrix Ready partner that manages the issues faced on this thread complementary to UPM.
