I hope I am asking a question that makes sense here.  I am looking to setup an RDS setup for my application.  What is the difference between an RDS farm and a regular RDS Windows server setup?  When would I need to consider one over the other?

Exploring SQL Server 2016: Fundamentals

Learn the fundamentals of Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database management system that stores and retrieves data when requested by other software applications.

With version 1803 once access is granted via the FortiClient Console, I can log on to any workstation with remote desktop from my computer remote from the site.  I updated a couple of workstations to 1809, but I cannot log on with remote desktop.  

When I check the event viewer I get several "Profile notification of event Load for component {B31118B2-1F49-48E5-B6F5-BC21CAEC56FB} failed, error code is See Tracelogging for error details.

Event ID 1534"
Some research has indicated that this is quite a common occurrence, and does not seem to be impacting performance.  Are there any solutios available that would allow remote desktop connections?  I can log onto the server and then remote desktop to each workstation from "inside" the network.

I had this question after viewing Error on startup of mapped network application - clr20r3 and mscorlib..

My situation is different, of course.  My application is written in PowerBuilder and has an "Extract to Excel" option which was working fine.  Now I'm getting the CLR20r3 error as shown in the 3 screen shots of the same error below:
CLR20r3 error....Part 1CLR20r3 error....Part 2CLR20r3 error....Part 3
The application runs remotely using RDS on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  The client computers have recently been updated to Windows 10, but I don't believe that is the root cause of this since this was working for a while after the update.  Frankly, I'm at a total loss, since the program logic for this functionality is straightforward and, frankly, does not leave me with many options.  Basically, due to performance issues, I've programmed this process into 2 steps.  The first step extracts the selected report to Excel on my server under the user's profile into their "documents" folder using a generic file name (e.g. excel001.xlsx).  The second step (which causes this error, since the first step works fine...) is to simply copy the file from the generic saved file on my server to the "redirected" location the client user selected in the "Save As..." dialog box!  Also, just to confuse matters further, "saving" the same report as a PDF file works with no issues!?  Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I have a 2016 RDS system comprised of 4 servers. "Server1" = Licensing/Connection Broker/WebAccess; "Server2" = Profile disk host for .VHDX files. "Server3" = Session Host; "Server4" = Session Host.  There is one Collection called "Test" which both Session Host servers (Server3 and Server4) are members. There is no Gateway server because this is an internal system only with no public access. NOTE: I have not created any certificates as I did not think them needed due to public access not being allowed.

Issue: Not always, but sometimes when a client tries to RDP into one of the Session Hosts, the attached error occurs. I have read lots of conflicting information regarding the "Farm" that is referenced in the error. I have read that there is no need to add DNS entries for Round Robin functionality between these Sessions Hosts with 2016 RDS systems, and I cannot find any Farm name to direct my clients to.

My next step was going to be to add RD Gateway functionality to Server1 to see if I could create a Farm and then actually get a Farm name and, subsequently, add the DNS entries. I'm going to wait on responses before doing so.

If anyone can help here, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Hello,

A client of mine is looking for advice.
She needs her assistant to be able to access her laptop remotely (Windows 10), and to access only specific folders and applications.
I don't have all the information available but let's assume that they both use Windows 10 Home Edition.

I was browsing through Teamviewer and other similar programs but I could not find anything about accessing "specific" folders.

Or maybe my client can create another account on her laptop that would be dedicated to her assistant only. Not sure how would that work though.
Basically, her assistant needs to work with MS Excel, Word, Adobe PDF and one Accounting program (maybe also with Chrome and Notepad).

I would appreciate any help with this.
Thank you,

Hi,
I am using Windows 10 Pro 1803 (build 17134.471). My workstation is on a AD domain.
Since few weeks, I am not able anymore to access through RDP.
After credentials, I see spinning circles and nothing happens.
After this, I am unable to access to local console, and I am forced to reboot.
How can I solve this?
Thank you

I would like some parental control software that will limit the amount of time that a user spends on games (especially Fortnite) and TV.  I need software that does not allow some games to slip through the net. I would also like to be able to view the computer screens on out network without the users being aware. Maybe that could be achieved with a remote access software but the ones that I have used have always notified the user of the remote PC that their PC is being viewed.
Which software would be the best? Which software would achieve these minimum requirements for the least amount of money?
Thank you

We have a number of users that work remotely. Lately, they have been experiencing a large lag when trying to run in house developed .aspx pages.

This appears in multiple ways: 1) taking multiple seconds for letters to appear when typing and 2) taking lots of time for data in a dropdown list to appear.

I have tried all of the normal fixes with no luck. Examples:

-Problem happens in different web browsers.
-Problem happens when the remote users are in the office connected via cable or when they are using WiFi remotely.
-All other users are having no problems with the application.

Any other suggestions?

Hi, Does anyone know an inexpensive to Citrix's GoToMyPC?  This excellent product has increased fourfold in th3e last month!  I used to have a subscription for $119/year which suddenly jumped to somthing like $800/year which they will discount to about $400/year.  Rather steep!  So if someone knows of a more cost effective alternative, I would be interested!
Thanks.

Hello,

I need to lower the Internet Explorer zone settings for Internet as many users are finding it difficult to download items from some websites, mainly government sites where the work with VAT and other depositions.

So, I made one simple change to the default domain GPO which was

User config<policies<administrative templates<windows components<internet explorer<internet control panel<security page<
then enabled Internet Zone Template and set it to Medium.


However when the policy became applied the Internet zone was blocked at Medium-high even though I specified Medium. Now I can't remove this, I reset the Internet Zone Template back to Not Configured, even tried Disabled but now all the suers are stuck on medium High, as if the policy is still being applied.


If it makes any difference the users are on a RDS server.

Please help!


Thanks very much.

Microsoft Azure 2017

Azure has a changed a lot since it was originally introduce by adding new services and features. Do you know everything you need to about Azure? This course will teach you about the Azure App Service, monitoring and application insights, DevOps, and Team Services.

accidentally installed the DC role and promoted it on our Terminal server.
demoted and removed the role. now the Remote Desktop Management service will not start.

what would be the steps to resolve this? i'd prefer NOT removing the role and reinstalling as there are many remoteapp and other configs setup.

alternatively i have a backup i can restore from before the screw-up, however i'm not sure if that's advisable due to the promotion?

Hello,

Recently installed 20 2016 RDS user CALs and since then nobody has permission to download any files from the internet, whether from online banking or other government sites. Error states the security settings do not allow it.  Before installing the CALs the users were working in grace period and all was fine.

If I use RD Licensing Diagnoser it says at the top
Licenses are not available for this Remote Desktop Session Host server and RD licensing diagnoser has identified licensing problems for the RD Session host server.

The Remote Desktop Session Host Server is in Per User licensing mode and No Redirector mode, but license server ……. does not have any installed licenses with the following attributes: Product Version:Windows Server 2016Licensing mode.

Looking at the licensing server info it says
Version                           Windows Server 2016
………………..
……………
The license server has the following licenses installed and available

RDS Per User CAL      Windows Server 2016     20 installed     0 available


I have already checked in the registry that the value 4 is assigned to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\Licensing Core\LicensingMode

Also the name of the licensing and host server is correct (just one machine).

I have been looking for abut 2 hours now and am not finding anything helpful.

Please help!

Thank you

We have an MS Access application that runs on a remote server.  Each user has their own RDP login, which takes them straight to the application.  When they leave the application, they are logged off.  

The issue is that when we set up a new user, we need to get MS Remote Desktop Connection up and running, get them to add the necessary credentials and eventually save a shortcut onto the desktop.  Whilst this is fine for technical people - it's not ideal (especially when we scale up the users).

I want to create a C# / .Net application that will allow us to set up and run the RDP side of things - from a single setup.exe installation, with and configuration file (containing login credentials etc.), to the management of the RDP session.  

I would prefer not to use to MS Remote Desktop Connection in a wrapper and was wondering if there was anything out there that would allow us to run RDP session from within a .Net application?

How to set up two RDS servers on the same subnet on Windows 2012 R2.

I configured a second RDS server with the exact same configuration as the first one and restarted both servers, the first one dropped all settings after restarting it and users weren't able to log in.  Only one connection broker is allowed across multiple RDS servers?

Made changes to GPO yesterday, now cannot log in through RDP.  Get the message
"Other User"
To sign in remotely , you need the right to sign in though RDP Services.  By default , member's of the RDP Users Group have this right.  If the group you're in doesn't have this right, or if the right have been removed from the Remote Desktop Users Group, you need to be granted manually.

I've looked at Computer Config >> Windows Settings >> Security Settings >> User Rights Assignment >> 
"Allow log on through RDP Services"
"Deny access to this computer from the network"
"Deny log on through RDP Services"

I'm fairly certain i didn't change any other setting that would cause this,  not what the fix is.

I am running approximately 50 users with 23 remote users logging into one -- soon to be 2 Parallels servers.  The new server is 2016.  My questions are:  I assume I only need 23 RDS licenses.  They say they aren't concurrent so do I get user or device RDS licenses?   The notes from Technet below are unclear.  

From Technet:  If you choose Per User RDS CALs, the licenses are for specific users.  If you choose Per Device RDS CALs, the licenses are for specific devices.

NOTE: RDS Licensing is not concurrent.  What this means is that if you purchase 15 RDS CALs they are for 15 specific users, not "any" 15 users at a given moment in time, which is how it would be under a concurrent scheme.  For tracking purposes, a Per User CAL is issued to a user for 60 days.

A user who has a Per User RDS CAL can access as many RDSH/TS servers as they want from as many different client devices as they choose and they are covered as far as RDS CAL requirements are concerned.  They also need to have a Windows CAL in addition to their RDS CAL.

-TPAlso, my supplier says I buy 2019 licenses and downgrade.

Hello,

When you open the Microsoft RDP application, type in the PC/server details and click connect you are then presented with the credentials window. If you leave this credentials window open for over 10 minutes or so is it normal for the application to produce an error when eventually attempting to sign in? I usually get "An internal error has occurred" or "The two computers could not connect in the amount of time allotted".

This may sound like a strange one but this is why this is an issue for us.

We run a script set via group policy that upon PC boot up it auto signs into a generic local user account and then pops up the RDP client credentials window. This credentials window sometimes gets left open for a while as users go grab a morning coffee, go on lunch etc. When they come back to sign in it takes two attempts to sign into the remote server.

Thanks,

Adam.

Introduction to R
LVL 12
Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

MY SYSTEM
(1) Desktop running Windows 7 Pro
(2) Laptop running Windows 8.1, only 20GB hard drive.

BACKGROUND
On machine (1), I want to install a Virtual Machine that runs Linux.
On that Linux virtual machine I will be installing ROS and running simulations in Gazebo.

I want to install software on both machines so that machine (2), the laptop, can fully control machine (1).
The two machines may not always be on the same WiFi network. The laptop will at times need to access the desktop machine over the internet.
I need to make sure the connection is secure and that no one else can access either machine without my authorization.
I am using this for personal use, non-commercial.

QUESTION
Please recommend software that runs over the internet that will allow me to fully control the desktop machine (1) from the laptop machine (2).
Is there any free software that I can use?
Will Teamviewer allow this?

I'm trying to set up remote Desktop services on our Windows 2016 server and the licences (User CALS) aren't being used by users when they log in via RDP (as viewed in RD Licensing Manager).

I've been through the instructions on several sites namely this one at www.lemonbits.com but am getting the following error in Server Manager > Remote Desktop Services > Servers:

Error ID: 85
Source: Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing
The Remote Desktop license server could not be registered as a service connection point in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Ensure that there is network connectivity between the license server and AD DS. To register the license server as a service connection point in AD DS, use Review Configuration in the RD Licensing Manager tool.

When I Review the Configuration All I get is green ticks and no actions to take.

Looking for advice on where to go from here. It's all changed since I last set this up in 2008 when, if I remember correctly,  it was much simpler (good old days?)

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

SSL CertificateHi,
I am try to set up Remote Access in Windows Server 2016 essentials and it is asking for SSL certificate.
(1) Is buying a certificate a must to set up remote access in Server 2016 essentials?
When I set up Remote Desktop Access in SBS2011, I used server-generated certificate which does not cost any money.
(2) If I am going to  set up Remote Desktop Access in Server 2016 Standard, do I also need to purchase SSL certificate? No server-generated certificate available anymore?

Thanks.

hi all hope everyone is doing well ,

i am having an issue with SSO that is a domain joined machine and is connecting in from outside the network.
this is the error message i receive
 mFsoLBh.png
is single sign on supposed to work this way for external when setup as it works internally correctly passing through the credentials?

i have also noticed when testing if i login first on domain then disconnect and connect to external network and try launching a published app it will work , it also works if i just enter the username and password into credential manager.

looks like it doesnt pass the windows domain cached creds , unless you authenticate with active directory first for that session/ or manually specify them in creds manager.

thanks for taking a look.

Hi Experts.
Can you please provide some assistance in terms of how I can respond to our client,
We have about 6000 workstations in our environment, however SCCM is reporting blanks for last logon user and most common user on around 200 of these devices,
What generally can be the cause of this?
IE: besides a faulty SCCM client, which we can rule
(2) machines connecting via Direct Access remote access, would this have a bearing,
(3) machines that has just come off workstation build, and no user has obviously logged onto them?
Any advise how I can respond to my client around this will be appreciated
