This problem occurs in Internet Explorer 10 when the HTML report is created by using dfsmgmt.msc or dfsradmin.exe on the following operating systems:
Changes were made in Internet Explorer 10 that required updates in DFS Replication report generation for the reports to be displayed correctly.
To work around this issue, enable Internet Explorer 5 quirks mode in Internet Explorer 10. To do this, follow these steps:
Reports that are created by using the Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 versions of dfsmgmt.msc and dfsradmin.exe are displayed correctly in Internet Explorer 10. These reports are displayed correctly because, by default, these reports contain a metadata tag to use Internet Explorer 5 quirks mode. Earlier operating system versions of dfsmgmt.msc and dfsradmin.exe do not set this tag when reports are generated.
Alternatively, you can set Internet Explorer 10 to open all web pages in Compatibility View by using the Compatibility View Settings menu. However, we do not recommend this alternative.
