  1. Need more document about building RDS env with fixed IP

    When I deploy my RDS env, the RDS GW has a fixed public IP but I want my session host to share the same outgoing public IP. This is because some Azure Service such as Azure MySQL only whitelist certain IP.

    This is a prevalent requirement, I had been surprised that the AZ std RDS env build docs did not address this RDS.

    I am trying an Azure Loadbalancer to achieve this:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/configure-load-balancer-outbound-cli
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/load-balancer-outbound-rules-overview

    Hope you can put this in the documentation at least put in the "Note" part.

  3. Remote Desktop web client and desktop certificate

    In the web client we get the following message:

    Oops, we couldn't connect to "Workstation"

    Your session ended because an unexpected server authentication certificate was received from the remote PC. Ask your admin or tech support for help.

    If we use the standard remote desktop application, we can choose to accept that the certificate may not be correct and connect anyway. It would be good if we had the same choice through the web client.

  5. Mirocosoft Security & Compliance Toolkit - Common approach to apply GPOs

    Currently the GPOs provided by MS SCT (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/security-compliance-toolkit-10) have differents approaches how to install them.
    e.g.
    Windows 10 Version 1507 Security Baseline\LocalScript\10ClientInstall.cmd
    Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019 Security Baseline\Local
    Script\BaselineLocalInstall.ps1
    Windows 10 Version 1909 and Windows Server Version 1909 Security Baseline\Scripts{Baseline-LocalInstall.ps1, Baseline-ADImport.ps1, Remove-EPBaselineSettings.ps1}

    It would be nice to have common/generic approach how those GPOs can be applied. For example one powershell script that can be used to install any GPO regardless of the Windows patch level or AD status (joind to AD or standalone/local GPO) and specify the details with parameters. Otherwise…

  6. Explain the error "Щīńδǿωŝ Ĥ℮ℓℓò ƒòґ ßùśĩήėŝś ρгŏνіŝīőπĩńġ щīŀļ йŏτ вë łǻüŋ¢нεð."

    The "User Device Registration" section in Event Viewer gives somewhat concerning logs. These logs should be explained, assuming my system is not compromised. No other log is like this, it's only "Applications and Services Logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> User Device Registration".

    For example:

    Щīńδǿωŝ Ĥ℮ℓℓò ƒòґ ßùśĩήėŝś ρгŏνіŝīőπĩńġ щīŀļ йŏτ вë łǻüŋ¢нεð.

  11. SSL / STARTTLS email notifications for File Server Resource Manager

    There doesn't appear to be any way to set up SSL/STARTTLS configuration for email notifications from File Server Resource Manager.

    Can this ability be added so that email can be securely sent?

  15. RDSH role breaks Windows Search

    Hello,

    on a fresh installed and fully patched Windows Server 2019 Std if I enable RDSH role the Windows Search stops working.

    Windows Search service looks good and eventlog shows no errors but Indexing Options shows no locations enabled for indexing and I am unable to add them

    Things I have already tried

    1 - Windows Search service restart

    2 - Server restart

    3 - Rebuild Index

    4 - Enable Windows Search feature

    5 - DISM ad SFC

    6 - Windows Troubleshoot - shows incorrect permission on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data folder but is unable to fix them. If I manually fix those…

  16. This is too Complex: "Deploy Windows Server Hybrid Cloud Print with Pre-Authentication"

    I'd like to join all of my on-premise machines to Azure AD (and remove them from the local domain). However, it is procedures such as this one that are incredibly complex to set up. I'd like to recommend that Azure engineers refine and simplify such a process as this.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/hybrid-cloud-print/hybrid-cloud-print-deploy

    The easier you make doing a task such as this one, the quicker folks like me will migrate users over to Azure. It should not be so difficult to implement something so basic such as accessing an on-premise printer (that's joined to a local domain) from AAD joined machine.

  20. regedit address bar

    When is (did?) the regedit address bar coming (come) to Windows Server?

    It would be a big help navigating remote registries. We would save bandwidth and improve performance to go directly to a location in registry on our remote clients on slow networks, instead of slowly opening trees.
