  1. Add file locking so when using DFS, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Add file locking so when using Distributed File System, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Currently two people can open the same file on two servers connected using DFS, and they both can edit the file. Bob can edit it for 2 days, and then Sarah can open it on the second for 30 minutes. Then Bob closes his, and Sarah closes hers, and all of Bob's 2 days of work gets wiped out.

    DFS has been around for... 8-10 years? Why has this not been fixed? Administrators have enough issues without having…

  2. Pasting image into Word 2016 & PowerPoint 2016 doesn't work

    I'm on my laptop, and I'm connected to my remote computer via Microsoft Remote Desktop from the Microsoft app store.


    1. I copy an image from PowerPoint 365 from my local laptop. I switch to PowerPoint 2016 on my remote computer. I paste the image into PowerPoint 2016 via CTRL-V. On the status bar in PowerPoint 2016, it says, "Press ESC key to cancel this operation." And it just sits there, even after 5 minutes. Result: No image is pasted on PowerPoint 2016.

    If I use rdcMan, the behavior above doesn't happen, and I'm able to paste.

    Please fix?

  3. Disk Management under a non-domain account cannot detach VHDs on network shares

    To reproduce:

    1) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - has domain credentials to access some network share

    2) "Attach VHD", choose a .vhdx file stored on a network share.

    3) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - does not have domain credentials

    4) Right-click the VHD's item in the Disk list, click "Detach VHD"

    Observe that a dialog pops up reporting the UNC path to the VHD file, which is of course already a bad sign.
    Click OK.
    Observe that an dialog pops…

  7. Allow hard reset of frozen remote desktop

    Windows has been freezing completely on remote desktop.
    Commands such as ctrl + alt + end don't work, but the remote machine is still capable of recognizing my password, it just doesn't leave the "unlock computer" screen at all.

    Please allow for sending forced resets without depending on the remote interface.

    A command prompt from local machine that acts on the remote machine would be perfect.

  8. RSAT on Windows 10 2004

    We have search the Web and cannot install RSAT on this OS. nothing works. even after tearing holes in our security , we have fiddled and broken WSUS. and still we cannot get the RSAT tools installed.
    We have the stand alone installer, we have tried the option feature approach. It simply will not install because we have a WSUS server. The end game over thats all folk, go back Windows 10 1809 so that you can work.

  11. WSUS 10.0/6.3 cannot import update metadata through Microsoft Update Catalog

    Currently I tested WSUS 10.0 (Server 2019) and WSUS 6.3 (Server 2012R2). Both versions of WSUS cannot import updates through the built-in import function. The error code is 80131509. Is this feature currently disabled?

  14. [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. IE keep asking for credentials so many times(ADFS LDAP user's credentials) and failing .

But still I am facing the same issue. as checked in the below command I can see that IE 11 is…

  17. 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
