I'm trying to set up an RDS Collection using an RD Gateway. I have everything set up but when the user tries to connect through the GW, it's giving the error "The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for the remote login.". I've tested connected to the RD server directly and that works... The GW server/RD connection broker just won't pass the user on to the RD session host automatically.

Have a client running Server 2016 Standard R2 with Essentials Role. They were purchased by a larger company and are in transition. As part of the change, they are now using the new Owners VPN Solution, so the remote access feature of Server 2016 is not required (and is sometimes confusing users).

Not sure of the best way to remove it - just remove the Remote Access role? Will that remove the Network Connection link and the VPN Adapter from Network Connections (without causing any other  problems)? Or is there a better way of accomplishing this?

I don't care if the Remote Access solution stays in place (as it doesn't work anymore), I just don't want users to see the Link and Adapter.

See screenshot for details.

Hi,

I have a RDS farm containing 3 hosts servers and a one server Broker. I installed a certificate signed by a trusted authority on the broker server and when I access web mode on the server broker, my certificate is well recognized. In the deployment configuration options, certificates are trusted and OK.  

When I access the server named RDS.domain.fr  (Round Robin DNS containing the 3 hosts hosts) I have the problem of certificate not recognized by a trusted authority. He gives me the self-signed certificate of the Host server. This certificat have no private key.

I have tried to installed it on my computer (Users and computer) but I have the same problem.

How to change self signed certificat on Host RDS ?

Thanks

I want to have the ability to connect safely to my network from home. Is there any freeware out there that allow me to do that? Do I have to open up any port on the wireless router?

I have a legacy Windows app I've installed on a Windows Server 2019 EC2 instance.  I want to let a client use it over RDP (well, through a web browser and RDS).

When I set up RDS it tells me I need a CAL per user.  The AWS docs seems to say that EC2 server instances are pre-licenced for 2 admin users by RDP plus unlimited clients (presumably of the web server or similar).

Can I let the client use just my Windows application on the machine without further licences?  If so, how do I tell RDS that it's legitimate use, or if not, what's the least cost solution to setting this up legitimately?

Simon.

Have 3 node RDS 2016 deployment, 1 Session broker and 2x session hosts.  One of the hosts seems to be really slow, so while troubleshooting I want to disable logins and force users to use the other hosts. So from the host i want to disable I ran "change logon /disable" and then on the SB i right clicked on that host and disabled new connections. Now when users try to use the rd web, they get remote logons disable..so that tells me still trying to use the disabled host.  How do I do this?

Management wants to know what employees are doing if working remotely. I would like to track and store their activity while they are connected to our work server via remote access.

I need to track all user activity such as select, insert, update and delete and put it into a table in order to create a report.

The Database we use is Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

Hey guys,
We have a client that is setup with a Remote Desktop Gateway.  We constantly get people who are getting redirected to the incorrect terminal server and they would either get the error message, "The remote comptuer (computer name) that you are trying to connect to is redirecting you to another computer named....," or that people call in and say that all their stuff is gone, because they are in the wrong server.  I don't see anyway to simply tell something, "this user goes to this server," and it is very frustrating.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Have 3 2016 servers, 2 session hosts and 1 connection broker/web gateway/licensing
Installed RDS on all 3, from the connection broker I created a server pool in Server manager and added all three.  Install the RDS role and assigned the roles and setup went fine.  From the Connection broker I see all the servers and the session hosts(see pic 1)  but when I go the the session hosts, they act like nothing installed (pic 2)  What am I missing?Pic1pic2

Hi –

I have a client running SBS 2011 and has 16 workstations attached to the domain.  They are either Windows/7 or Windows/10 clients.  They use RWW for remote access to the domain workstations.  Any Windows/7 workstation is capable of RWW – no problem to any of the workstations (Windows/7 or Windows/10.)  The problem is when the user attempts to access the domain clients from Windows/10 – they get the message
“Your computer can’t connect to the remote computer because a security package error occurred in the transport layer.  Retry the connection or contact your network administrator for assistance.”
The strange thing is the first time a Windows/10 client tries to connect through RWW it works.  After that we get this message.  Can access any workstation using Windows/7 so I don’t think it is the server nor the domain computer.
Tried deleting the history, download, etc from Internet options, but nothing changes.  Today, using a Dell laptop (Windows/10) was able to get on – but the second time I got the error message.  
Any help would really be appreciated.
Thanks

Customer has one physical box with Server 2016 running Active Directory and all services needed for that, and File/Print/ redirected folders, etc. They now have need for an RDS server. Is it possible to add the Hyper-V role to that server, create 2 new Virtual Windows Server 2016 Machines - one for RDS and the other to migrate everything that the current server is doing at the moment? It would be like an in place migration project. Their network has less than 20 users and the physical server is quite nice. In the end they would have a Hyper-V host, with 2 VMs, one Server running AD, File Print , DNS DHCP and another running RDS. Does that sound doable?

Hi, I have a user that I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  She uses remote desktop quite a bit and now it likes to crash on her "stopped working".  I notice her version is version 10.0.18362.1.  I think there is a newer version.

Question, can I download a newer version of mstsc.exe?  And where would I do that?

Thanks all.

We are running a Windows Server 2012 R2 RDS environment and one of the users on the domain is having an issue with his taskbar. The taskbar does not show any icons when windows are open or minimized and the start button does not function even if you press the key on keyboard. We are able to get the start button to at least flicker but only when it is positioned to the right or left side of the display. I have tried restarting the windows explorer and restarting it but that did not resolve the issue.

If I have 17 RDS per device CALs for Windows Server 2019, that means only 17 devices can be connected to the terminal server at one time correct?

Hello,

Requesting for help on our issue.

We have an issue accessing RDS Overview on Server Manager if we are not using our Domain Admin (named domainAdministrator). So here's my scenario.

1. RDP to server using my own domain admin credentials (member of Administrators/BUILTIN and <DOMAIN>\Domain Admins) doesn't allow access to RDS Overview.
2. RDP to server using domainAdministrator credentials (also members of the above) allows access to RDS Overview.

Error message on #1 is shown in the attached.

With the push towards MFA, most the security vendors are focused on securing cloud hosted applications. What solutions have you used to secure on-premise applications with MFA?

Looking for a solution that provides MFA for on-premise Active Directory, RDS farm, and in-house Exchange 2016. Not currently using any services from Azure or Office 365.

Thanks.

I have a server (workstation) used for Dental and several laptops connect to a shared drive on the computer.  For some reason, no one is able to connect to the shared drive on the server and no one can ping the server.  The server is on the network.  I can connect to the server via Teamviewer; but that is all.  I cannot connect via Remote access.  The IP of the server is not registering in any type of IP Scanner.  I try to ping the device name and still get request timed out.  This is urgent, since the entire department works off of this server and they are unable to work.  I even changed the IP address thinking that it might be an IP conflict - still does not work.

I'm having a very strange and extremely annoying problem with Outlook remote access via http.

My company has an Exchange 2013 latest build.
All users are running windows10 with Outlook 2016.
All pcs are configured as domain clients and Outlook set up while connected to the domain.

When users connects from outside the office via Outlook http, half of the users are complaining that mails are stuck in OUTBOX for several minutes before send - If a file is attached, this can be up to 20 minutes.
My problem is, that I can't replicate this problem!
No matter where Im located, connected to wifi or via my smart phone it works PERFECT!
Mailflow is fast with no delays.
Is this because these users are connecting from slow wifis or something?

Having an issue with remote desktop access.  I have a 2016 VM server created and added to our domain.  However, when I try to remote access into the server, it cannot connect with the typical 'Remote Desktop cannot connect to the remote computer.  I have check to ensure Remote Desktop is enabled on the VM and I can ping the VM by IP and by Host name.  I did a little Google research on the problem, and the majority issue is GPO.  We do have a GPO in our domain, however, I can remote desktop any other server/desktop in our domain, not sure whey this one would be different.

To eliminate the GPO possibility, I removed the VM server from the domain and tried Remote Desktop to the host name and IP, but still no luck.  Is there any trick or extra step to allowing Remote Desktop to work with Server 2016?

By the way, I have already tried completely disabling the Firewall and turned on Network Discovery.
