  2. Prevent NTFS Change Permissions from being applied when Creator Owner is removed

    When Creator Owner is removed from NTFS permissions, change permissions is still given when a person with Modify rights creates a new folder/file. If the Modify permission is the only permission granted, a person who creates a new folder/file should not be granted the Change Permissions when Creator Owner has been removed from the NTFS permissions.

  7. Provide a guide on what rights are necessary for working in RDS in the "least privilege" model.

    Provide a guide on what rights are necessary for working in RDS in the "least privilege" model. Giving technicians ability to shadow end users or publish applications without being admins of the server.

  8. Smartcard redirection on Microsoft Remote Desktop from Mac to Microsoft Server don't work on smart card enforced server.

    Smartcard redirection on Microsoft Remote Desktop application from Mac to Server don't work on smart card enforced MS server. It will not allow us to get to the login window of the Server, where we can choose to use smartcard login. The Remote Desktop to the server keeps prompting for username and password and not the smartcard credential.

  9. Order ABC for SSL certificates in binding list

    Order ABC for SSL certificates in binding list.
    Right now it's ordered by certificate hash, making it very hard to select the proper certificate.

  11. extend-a-basic-volume does not work and after trying, lots of programs and icons on desktop have now a red x in lower left corner

    Ich habe laut diesen Anweisungen https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows-server/storage/disk-management/extend-a-basic-volume ...

    ...auf dem 'Datenträger 1' (2TB), sind zwei Partitionen von ca.1TB .
    Bei der ersten Partition 'D' konnte ich die Größe um einen Teil (195,43GB) des bisher nicht genutzten Teil (ca.400GB) verkleinern und ich konnte den dann 'Nicht zugeordneten' Teil auch wieder nutzen um der ersten PAR 'D' wieder/nochmal 5GB zuzuordnen.
    Bei der zweiten Partition 'E' kann ich aus dem freien 'Nicht zugeorndneten ' Teil nichts benutzen um die zweite Partition E damit zu vergrößern !??!

  12. imporve backwards compatibility to 2016

    it is quite annoying that going through a folder redirection step-by-step instruction found on Microsoft websites it turns out that Windows 2019 does not apply this policy correctly, it keeps me signing in with a temporary profile. Using a Windows 2016 server the policy is applied. Wasted two working days becuase I thought I made it wrong. My AD is nearly untouched AD in 2016 level, the folder redirection is the only GPO object that exists apart from the default domain policy and that has only three settings to stop the screensaver from appearing and weakening the password rules. When…

  16. 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.

  19. 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.
