Hello all.

We have a Window's 2016 server with remote desktop and are having some issues with printers dropping out. We have a remote desktop environment with multiple printers. The model of the printers are as follows, UTAX P-4530DN, UTAX P-4530DN, UTAX P-4530DN KX, those are the main three with the problem. The issue originally was that they were disappearing from the RDS servers whilst users were signed in. However we managed to resolve this problem we adding it manually to each of the RDS servers. Unfortuantely this sparked another issue, and now the jobs get half way through spooling and the printers have to have their queues cleared and then have to be restarted. Once that has been done it will start to work again. They are added via IP address, and the printers have a physical connection to the network which is on the clients site.

I was wondering if anyone else had this issue, and if anyone could suggest why this might be happening? Please ask my anything if I have not been clear enough.

Thanks,

Kieran

We have a user who gets the error intermittently noted in the attachment when trying to establish an RDP session.  This is from outside of our firewall using a port number, such as RDP address ftp.companyname.com:5630.  Updates are up to date.  This is from a MS Windows 10 mobile laptop computer to a MS Windows 7 desktop computer.  Has anyone else seen problems involving this specific error message and what's involved?  Thanks.

Hello All,

I have a new Server 2016 system that I have setup up a DC.  This will be a new server taking over for an old SBS 2011 system being decommissioned.  I am logged in as a domain admin but can't get Remote Access for VPN to install.  It keeps saying that the server needs to be restarted to finish the install but it won't finish.  It does the same thing each time I try to install the role.  I can install the snap-in and turn on RRAS and I can set up the VPN that way but  I don't know if it really is setting everything up correctly.  I can't test yet since the SBS Server is till the VPN host and I want to make sure this is set up before I turn that one off.   I have done this on other Server 2016 systems with no problem so I don't know what is missing here.

Regards,

Rob

Hi,

I have a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V server with 3 VMs.  One of the VMs is setup for Remote Desktop Services and we have about 13 users connect into this server to work.  Most of them connect to it from within the office.  Some of the users connect from outside of the office.  The managers asked me if there's a way that I can restrict remote access for some of the users.  They would be able to work at their computer within the office but if they go home and feel like they want to remote into their session, they would be restricted from logging into their session when they're out of the office.  What's the best and most simple way to accomplish this?  Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a 3-node RDS 2008R2 farm. I have a centralized RDProfiles share on a fourth server (A separate fileserver) and I have the RDS profiles set to autodelete when the user logs off- they run a few RemoteApps that should not retain any settings. Two questions on this:
First, with this setup, shouldn't the users' profile folders disappear from the filesever when they log off for their session on the farm?
Second, they currently use a shared config file for one of their apps. Since their profiles should be deleted at log off, I'd much rather keep a copy of the config file in a default profile location that is copied to create the profile each time the user logs in- that way, if they make a change it is not kept- the shared location generates errors if they can't write the file at exit, and if they can they get unpredictable results. Does this file go under a folder with a name like ".DEFAULT" in a case like this?

Thanks!

2016 RDS. All RDS roles installed and otherwise working properly. We have users that after minimizing their session, when restoring it, it maximizes to their non-main screen and the application freezes. I found that if they  "restore" (not maximize or minimize.... ) move it to the mainscreen and maximize, it would become functional again.
"x'ing" out and reopening also fixed it. Remotefx is not configured but as a test was disabled on a test server (via gpedit) and the issue continued. Users are accessing the application through RD Web Access.
My searches so far have not yielded much, hoping one of you had seen this, or similar.

hello,
i'm needing some information on accessing data from outside the US.

we  provide a service in which we collect customer data such as, home address, telephone, number, email address,and credit card information (credit card is encrypted and not stored within our data center), we are a PCI environment.

would like to know what the US data protection laws are for granting our Europe support team to access our data center which houses the above client data. remote access would be via a multi factor VPN.

thanks

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server that is configured as an RDS server.  It was a physical box on site and we recently migrated it to AWS.

Everything seems to work fine since the migration to AWS aside from printer redirection.  

I have confirmed that printing is configured properly on the RDP configuration, the spooler is running and the server has the correct drivers installed for each printer.  I have confirmed Easy Print is turned on and that redirection is configured in the RDP client.  The server is joined to the domain and has a secure connection to AD.  Easy Print is enabled, but I have tried disabling it to no avail.

I've read about other people having issues with printer redirection on AWS.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I need a good tool for drawing on the screen in real time.

When I am on a Skype call with my programmer, we are usually not in the same physical location as the machine. We currently connect to the machine via TeamViewer which gives us both the ability to interact. However I can't see his mouse moving and he can't see mine. I would also like to be able to do more than that and actually illustrate some things on the screen and he be able to do the same.

Both free and paid suggestions are greatly appreciated.

For more than one year we are now running an RDS environment on Server 2012 R2, including RD Gateway for external access. The past few days some users had randomly issues when they tried to start a shared desktop from external. Error message see RDS1.png. Without any changes, a few minutes later the access is working fine. On the RD Gateway server I found an error which says that the client doesn't meet the requirements and will not be authorized (see RDS2.png). It is really weird as it's only sometimes this happens and it seems this happens only with clients which are not joined to our domain. Any idea what the reason could be?

I am setting up a 2016 RDS server hosting a few apps and want to change the "Remote computer" name from the actual server name to something more generic like rds.domain.com. I have attached a pic that shows what I want to change.  I figured out where to change the Gateway server name, but not the remote computer name.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.2016 RemoteApp

We have set up several Windows Server Essentials 2012/R2 servers for remote web access (Anywhere Access) with the free Microsoft remote web access domain name and certificate (i.e., company.remotewebaccess.com).  We are now receiving alerts on the server indicating that the remote access certificate is about to expire and needs to be "renewed with your Certification Authority."  Could you please let me know the simplest, most efficient way to renew the Microsoft remotewebaccess.com certificate we originally set up?

If that cannot be done, what is the most straightforward way to resolve this problem and keep Anywhere Access working?

Security certificates are not something I am very familiar/experienced with,unfortunately.

Thanks very much.

Server 2008, 4 users connect via Remote Desktop and run a piece of accounting software.  3 users have run it no problem for the past 5 years.  Added a new user, same group membership as others.  Whenever user #4 tries to run the accounting software, she is presented with an administrator login box in order to be allowed to run the software.

I can find no differences between the users.  Fundamentally, what do I look for in order to eliminate this administrator prompt?

Remote desktop auto start session on VMHorizon DASS

Hello all-

I am working on setting up Remote Desktop Services for use by some of my remote users. The VMhorizon dass station are all windows server 2008, joined to the domain. The remote users will login to the Dass workstation using their domain login, then automatically launch a  RDP session to the workstation assign in their office.
Is there a way that when the user logs into the local workstation, it will start the RDP session right away and pass their username/password through. any help would greatly appreciated.

Trying to rid ourselves of the RDP Security Warnings when connecting to load balanced Hyper V Failover RDS Cluster.
"The identity of the remote computer cannot be verified."
"The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority"
And we are using round robin DNS so sometimes you will get a second occurrence of the above message but from a different server.

I have a load balanced 2012 RDS host farm with two collections (one to farm1 for security Group x and one to farm2 for security group y) with two 2016 HA Connection Brokers/Licensing servers. No gateway server. Typical RDP is used to connect from PC one the two farms. The farms are internal - meaning no outside public access. The PC/devices that will RDP to the farm connect through site to site VPN tunnels and CISCO AnyConnect Agents but are not a part of the domain the farms reside in. The internal domain the farms are on for example is domain.net. The DNS entry for farm1 say is farm1.domain.net and for farm2 is - ready?...... farm2.domain.net

That is what end users will RDP to with farm1.domain.net entered in their internal DNS to round robin resolve to the hosts in that farm and same thing for users for farm2.

I see a lot of walk through on certs but since this isn't externally accessible but the clients are not on the same domain the farms are on - not sure how to handle.

We have a client running a pathology database by publishing particular applications using MSTSC for a thin client interface.

The most recent Windows update has caused the Caption of one of the windows in the application to be displayed as blank in the client. Using a laptop with an older version of Windows shows the correct caption.

Is anyone aware what might cause this issue in MSTSC Client Windows. It must be a client issue because running the client on an older version of windows the caption is OK.

It is possible that caption length, or the presence of some particular character in the caption text is causing the problem.

We use our scripting language to drive this system and it relies on the Window captions to ensure that we can check that the software has reached the right window.

Good Morning. I am configuring RDS 2016 for my clients. And i completed setup of 2 connection brokers 2 web servers 2 session host servers and 2 gateway servers in place. We also have f5 vip with a url to test internally first. When i publish two RemoteApps into the portal it is connecting but with a session created asking to click OK and then it is asking for credentials to login to App Servers. I have settings under deployment "Donot user default gateway servers". Is thus something you can help me looking into the configuration and help me go through the process. Thanks

Hi Community,

We have one TS + One AD/FS
We enable UPD User Profile on the TS.
Now storage is getting a problem, some users have .ost file charging the UPD disk.
What i'm looking to do, is migrating some of the users (not everyone) to the FS server.
Migrating UPD keeping permissions could be achieved this way:
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askperf/2015/05/06/migrating-user-profile-disks-in-remote-desktop-services/

For my understanding, I will need to redeclare UPD path on the RDS server.
Is this possible to have different UPD location for specific users?

Thank for your hints!

Regards,
Nicolas

The RDP remote machine is a Windows Server 2012R2

• The local admin account cannot rdp

o The account is in Administrator Group
o The Error shows when RDP with this account at NLA:

“Your credentials did not work.”

“The credentials that were used to connect to server name did not work; please enter new credentials.”

• Domain account can log in without a problem, but both local admin account and the doamin account can log in through console.

So the error doesn't indicate the literal meaning since the credentials works though console.

• After disabling NLA on the remote settings, the RDP works.

How to fix the problem?
