Best Practice Analyzer in Windows Server 2016 Server Manager.

Hello,

I just setup a Windows Server 2016 server and I am looking at the Best Practices Analyzer results in Server Manager.

Some of the results such as "AutoDisconnectTimeout doesn't have the recommended value on this server." or "DurableHandleV2TimeoutInSeconds doesn't have the recommended value on this server", I do not know where to go and adjust it to the correct value.  

I click on the link "more information about this best practice and detailed resolution procedures" but it is just not available.

Someone who knows please advise.  

Thanks,
Windows OSWindows 10AzureWindows Server 2016Windows Server 2019

I think you can set it via group policy


You can also set it via set-smbserverconfiguration for both anyway.

Thank you very much!!!

I am down to two warnings:

Srv.sys is not set to start on demand.
Short file name creation should be disabled.  

Do you know how to fix them?

thanks,
