  2. [bug] RDS clipboard not working if disk mapping disabled

    I just found out that in Windows Server 2016 and 2019 if you disable disable option to allow mapping local Disk then clipboard is not working.

    As for now i never needed to restrict RDS to only support clipboard so i didn't catch this but i think this is a big issue.

    SO if you have configuration like in attachment then rdclipt won't start and you cannot user clipboard between client and server :/

    I am facing an issue where I have enabled the SSO with ADFS . I am able to do sso login from Mozila and Chrome but IE 11 is not letting me logged in with sso.

  4. Cmd fails to restore window title after nested batch file

    Normally when you run a batch file or other program from the command prompt the title of the console window changes to include the name of the batch file while it's running, such as "Command Prompt - testbatch".

    But after it runs the following batch file (testbatch.bat which chains to testbatch2.bat) it never changes it back, even though it has run to completion. So if you run it three times you end up with "Command Prompt - testbatch - testbatch - testbatch" as the title.

    To reproduce, create the following two files and run "testbatch" from the command prompt multiple…

  5. Fix OAuth Token URL For ADFS Authentication

    When authenticating to a pool (Fall 2019 release) via ADFS, the scope= parameter is specified twice (example below) which are reported as errors on the ADFS server, obfuscating more meaningful data. It would be appreciated if this could be fixed:

    https://<adfs>/adfs/oauth2/token?granttype=refreshtoken&refreshtoken=<omitted>&scope=openid+logoncert&windowsapiversion=2.0&nux=1&siteid=501413&scope=logoncert&display=popup

  11. Make Deduplication powershell commands compatible with Powershell Core

    Right now when trying to use commands like Get-DedupStatus or Get-DedupVolume from PowerShell Core - the output is incorrect, i.e. content of some tables aren't displayed. If before using I load the module via Import-Module -SkipEditionCheck Deduplication, it starts working fine.

    Please mark the module as compatible with PowerShell Core and/or test if it is actually compatible!

    Related bug in PowerShell Core repository: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/12702

  12. Add support to multi language server core 2019 when running on containers

    Default servercore:1809 image came with en-US.

    I've described step by step how to reproduce lpksetup.exe error on container, producing crash report logs that I've extracted from container.
    All here: https://github.com/sanguedemonstro/docker-playground/issues/1#issuecomment-453078549

    With extra details here: https://github.com/sanguedemonstro/docker-playground/blob/master/langpack-on-servercore2019.md#why-am-i-playing-around-this-subject

    But I'm not able to understand logs or fix windows base image. And I can't open support ticket once I'm not MS partner.

    So if anyone could help I'm here to support.

  13. klist sessions without exception would be nice: klist. errot: 0xc0000022/-1073741790

    klist sessions without exception would be nice:

    klist sessions result
    . error:0xc0000022/-1073741790

    yes. if I use an UAC shell this would not happen, but the idead of UAC is not my idea. Microsoft: If writing very secure and needed UAC programs, than test this idea.And this is not a remark for the programers, but for the MANAGER who get a bonus for the idea.

  19. BUG: Can't install OpenSSH Server On Off-net (air-gapped) machines. Need a downloadable version (hotfix?)

    I want OpenSSH server on my Windows 2019 machines. These are required to be air-gapped for security.

    There appears to be no way to download that feature for separate installation. All the instructions assume connectivity to Microsoft.com.

    Please provide a way to download the feature. (Note that obtaining this from non-MS sites, or compiling from source is prohibited by our government security representative.)
