  1. Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 (RSAT) fr-CA

    I live in Québec in Canada and we would love to install the RSAT tool with our regional parameter but it is not available actually.

    We need to install a language pack to successfully install it

    Can you release a version of the RSAT tool for fr-CA ?

    • Unable to log in using RDP on Windows Server 2012 or 2016 when having more than about 900 local users

      Hello,

      I would like to report a huge bug in Windows Server 2012 and 2016. For 2012 I need to try multiple times to log in to system using RDP but for upgrading 2012 to 2016 I can't log in at all. Everything is described here:

      https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/b45761b1-3949-4c9c-9e88-7d70cef6990f/long-delay-to-log-in-please-wait-for-the-local-session-manager?forum=ws2016

      Basically during RDP logging in process lsass.exe process is parsing ALL local users which takes too much time and incoming RDP session is being disconnected. As far as I can see in Windows Event log about 800-900 local users are being parsed before disconnection occurs.

      During logging in process lsass.exe is using large…

          • Print Spooler Isolation

            Ever since Windows server 2012 we have had printer driver isolation, but there is a need for print spooler isolation. This would allow for an individual spooler for a printer to be stopped and the jobs deleted without affecting all other printers on the print server. This could be done in a method where the main print spooler service spawns child instances for each print and then through an api you would be able to stop and start these child instances.

            • Workflow intigration in Microsoft Oulook

              This improvement suggestion is based on a problem which occurred often to me in my professional career, which cost a lot of nerves.
              The improvement would be to set up a workflow in a graphical representation, which contains all concerned persons at each step of the workflow. So to speak it would be a kind of extension to the task manager in Microsoft outlook, which not only shows what task are done or not done, but also at which point of the workflow the task is stuck, and which tasks are in the pipline.
              For example:

              • Scheduled Tasks do not store domain information of runas account

                If you create a scheduled task in Server 2016, the domain information of the user is not saved or stored.
                Getting the principal with powershell or exporting the task as xml does not show the domain information either.

                • Azure Site Recovery Integration issue in Server 2016 Essentials

                  I'm facing an issue on Azure Site Recovery Integration in server 2016 Essentials(Japanese).
                  I can see VMs on server dashboard and click [Enable replication to Azure], sign in Azure.
                  But, I can't choose region of subscription.

                  When I change system language, I can select region of Azure.

                    • configure the winrm client without starting the winrm server

                      When trying to user psremoting you have to add a trusted host to your client's trusted hosts. This is fine and we normally default to '*' for developer machines that need to talk to prod and other infra. The problem is that this also requires the developer machine to start the winrm service which 'allows the computer to recieve Windows Powershell remote commands that are sent using the WS-Management technology'. I get pushback from devs who don't want to run this server service and see it as an unecessary security risk. We typically don't need CredSSP or have issues with…

                              This days MFA is getting more and more popular so I was wondering why not add new feature to Windows family so when server boots Bitlocker could be unlocked not by network but by MFA
                              What do you think would this be even possible ?

                              • DHCP Failover ist not possible between different Languages.

                                Dear Microsoft,

                                it's not possible to Setup a DHCP Failover between two Server (w2k12 R2) with different languages in my case English and german.

                                The Error Code 20044 comes up because of the differenet naming of the user and/or vendor classes.

                                I think this should be fixed.

                                Kind regards,
                                Benedikt Ochs

                                    • Include a MODERN web browser e.g. LTSB Edge browser rather than outdated, unsupported IE11.

                                      It's kind of lame to promote Win2k16 RDSH then not include a modern web browser. Make an LTSB Edge browser, it can't be THAT difficult.

                                        • Add file hash checking capability to Task Scheduler

                                          Scheduled Tasks should have the ability to verify a file’s authenticity prior to executing. For example, if a Scheduled Task is executing a PowerShell script that is being run with an account that has Domain Admin rights, anyone that has access to modify the PowerShell script on the server essentially has Domain Admin rights.
                                          If there was an option added to the Scheduled Task setup where the owner could input the file hash of the PowerShell script and Task Scheduler checked the hash prior to executing the script, it would eliminate unauthorized changes.
