AMI with IE 10

AMI with IE 10
Because of automatic upgrades, our IE 9 users have dropped well below IE 11, 10, and 8. Is there an AMI on EC2 that has a version of IE above 9? We are using the ones from the docs:

https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...AMI-Images

Alternatively, can we upgrade IE on these machines and have it work?

RE: AMI with IE 10
Unfortunately I've hit a wall with the AMI's and their network drivers.

The current AMI's run on server 2003 which doesn't support anything > IE 9

The new OS's come with a paravirtual net driver that doesn't work with dummynet and as soon as dummynet is installed they become unreachable (making it effectively impossible to debug). I haven't given up entirely but it's probably going to require a different driver (which I haven't found), a different way to do the traffic shaping or an updated/fixed dummynet.

RE: AMI with IE 10
The guys at Radware managed to track down Server 2008 R2 AMI's that had the old network drivers so we're back in business. IE 10 and 11 AMI's are now available in all of the locations: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...AMI-Images

There are still a few bugs on the measurement side with IE 11 that I hope to get fixed today but the AMI's themselves won't change.

Are these available yet? We can't find these AMI's in us-east or us-west.

RE: AMI with IE 10
The AMI ID's are all listed here: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...AMI-Images and should all be public. If you can't get to one of them on AWS let me know which region and AMI ID and I'll take a look.

I can't find any of the ones listed for Virginia. I found a couple in CA that we'll try using. Thanks!

RE: AMI with IE 10
Sorry about that, looks like it's been an ongoing issue with their search for the better part of a year: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jsp...93򀜍

If you go through this flow it appears to work:
- Instances -> Launch Instance
- Select "Community AMIs"
- Check Operating System -> Windows
- Put the AMI ID in the search box and hit enter

For spot instances:
- Spot Requests -> Request Spot Instances
- Select "Community AMIs"
- Check Operating System -> Windows
- Put the AMI ID in the search box and hit enter

It should also work if you use the API to launch the instances.

AMI with IE 10
I'm not sure how to contribute documentations. Putting it here incase it's helpful to the next person coming across this.

First, grab an IE10/11 AMI. I will be using an IE11 instance. https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...AMI-Images

If you have problems finding the AMIs, try these steps:

Be sure to setup the user-data per the specification. This will suffice:
Code:
wpt_server=<ip of your wpt server> wpt_location=<name of instance>

My agent is called: wpt-agent

Edit the locations.ini on your server to add this new browser agent. IE10/11 uses wptdriver and should be configured like Firefox, Chrome has been.

Code:
[locations]
1=US_E

[US_E]
1=wpt-agent_wptdriver
label="US East IE11"

[wpt-agent_wptdriver]
browser=Chrome,Firefox,IE 11

RE: AMI with IE 10
Hi Patrick,

Been searching for the new 2014 AMIs in US East

IE9/Chrome/Firefox/Safari (2014, wptdriver only) - ami-6720260e
IE10/Chrome/Firefox/Safari (2014, wptdriver only) - ami-7720261e
IE11/Chrome/Firefox/Safari (2014, wptdriver only) - ami-4f202626

We've been able to find the IE11 AMI but not the IE10 or the IE9 AMIs. Have these been set back to private or has the AMI numbers been changed?

Thanks for your help
