And here is my list of Enterprise IE mode website:

  <site url="necacom.net">
    <compat-mode>Default</compat-mode>
    <open-in>MSEdge</open-in>
  </site>
</site-list>

 

 

 

 

Created by Enterprise Mode Site List Manager.

in both server and client, I am the administrator.

 

so what am I missing?

@HotCakeX 

 

here is what I suspect:

 

in this part:

 

"InternetExplorerIntegrationSiteList": {
         "level": "mandatory",
         "scope": "user",
         "source": "platform",
         "value": "\\\\SERVER-1\\share\\sites.xml"
      },

 

 

the Value is "\\\\SERVER-1\\share\\sites.xml"

 

is it possible that the quadruple backward slashes are causing the issue?

 

as you can see I've correctly only put double backward slashes in the group policy:

 

dsadsad.PNG

 

as stated here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/edge-ie-mode#configure-sites-on-the-enterprise-site-list

 

"

  • (Recommended) HTTPS location: https://localhost:8080/sites.xml
  • Local network file: \\network\shares\sites.xml
  • Local file: file:///c:/Users/<user>/Documents/sites.xml

"

@HotCakeX 

I also tried the HTTPS way but still no luck

 

this value is set inside group policy object:

https://server-1.domain.local/sitelist/sites.xml

(replaced my actual domain name with domain.local for posting in here)

 

 

the list is accessible on both server and client and in Edge insider Dev,

Solution

@HotCakeX  Just making sure I understand the issue - when you say Edge bypasses the site list, are you expecting bing.com from your list to open in IE mode? If so, you will need to set the <open-in> tag to IE11 instead of MSEdge. 

Let me know if I misunderstood the problem.

Thank you!
Oh sorry my bad,
I thought MSEdge tag means the site will load with internet explorer compatibility mode inside Edge
and IE tag means the side will open in Internet explorer program itself outside Edge.
but obviously I was wrong.
now I see to open a website in internet explorer program itself this is the tag
<open-in app="true">IE11</open-in> and Not this <open-in>IE11</open-in>

I should have read this page more carefully:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/edge-ie-mode#configure-sites-on-the-enterprise-site-list

Thanks again
