  1. Bug:PDORemovePeriod Default Vaule is 0

    PDORemovePeriod default value was 20 until Windows 2012R2.
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649804(v=wps.630).aspx

    But PDORemovePeriod default value of MSDSM is 0 on Windows 2016 TP5.

    When there is not PDORemovePeriod value of MSDSM on registry tree, PDORemovePeriod value of MPIO on registry tree is used for MSDSM until Windows 2012R2.

    The movement when all paths are disable is changed between Windows 2012R2 an Windows 2016TP5.

    Multipath I-O Test (LOGO) of HLK of 3rd party dsm is also affected.

  3. Japanese Input Method Bug in Explorer Inline Filename Editing

    Hello,
    In-line in the Windows Server 2016 TP5 of (en) Explorer, in a scenario where you enter the file name,
    When you enter the "tsu" in the Roman alphabet input to enable the IME, it seems extra character input is made.
    The following is a Build 14300 was clean installation, to enable IME files to create a new, a thing of when you enter "instruction cane(toriatsukaisetsumeisho)".
    It seems to exist in the "tsu" other characters, but it seems there is no problem in the Japanese input of elsewhere.

  8. Legal Banner Breaks RDP in Srv2016

    Our corp requires that a legal banner be displayed prior to all logins. This is controlled through a GPO. When I joined a Server 2016 Preview 2 machine to our domain, I could still log in via the console, but RDP connections would fail. The connection would be established and the legal banner would display, but as soon as you click "OK" on the banner, the RDP session quit. The only way to make RDP work that I have found was to remove the reg keys for the banner.
