Yes, you can. There are some prerequisites either WinRM service should run on desktops or AD should be implemented. For AD via GPO: 1) enable the policy “Allow users to connect remotely by using Remote Desktop Services” in “Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\...

This will solve your problem: In Registry Editor, locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services Add DWORD fQueryUserConfigFromLocalMachine with value 1 restart Reference https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/help/4021856/sbsl-issue-when-you-create-an-rdp-connection-...

Your question is a bit subjective. Does it work well? That depends on how you need to use it. Does it work as well with their GPO templates? It depends on what you need to manage via GPO. Chrome works as well as any other browser in RDS. Chrome's GPO's work as well as any other third party GPO's. Chrome will auto update itself unless there's an instance ...

If the system is completely air-gapped, someone has to physically go there in order to address any issues or make any changes. Better to be inconvenient than to be breached. Whatever your cost is to travel to and from these systems, it ought to be included in your service, support, or maintenance contracts.

Try CTRL-SHIFT-ESC instead of ALT. That directly opens Task Manager instead of going through the CTRL-ALT-DEL screen first. Works for me on a nested core RDP session as long as both sessions are configured to send Win key combos to the remote session.

Have you tried PSEXEC? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/psexec You can use PSEXEC and run the following: psexec \\COMPUTERNAME reg add "hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\terminal server" /f /v fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0 OR psexec \\COMPUTERNAME -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD reg add "hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\...

Ah! I found the issue. It turns out that some of the attributes are read-only so I would be able to put the entire instance back again and that is where it was failing. I have changed it so it is now just updating the attribute SSLCertificateSHA1Hash. Set-CimInstance -CimInstance $RDPInstance -Property @{SSLCertificateSHA1Hash=$Thumbprint} -PassThru

You must provide another certificate to replace this one. Do not delete the certificate that you defined as the RDP Certificate, otherwise you might be unable to connect again via RDP.

I've noticed similar behavior on various servers over the years... I've found that adding the following registry modification on the remote server, allows me to extend the default 60 second RDP timeout and the account will then login: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp LogonTimeout REG_DWORD Decimal: ...

This issue happen when the winlogon service can’t handle gracefully the user login. Check list to check: GPO that utilize a lot of the server CPU. A good exemple is printer mapping if you don’t use by default the Easy Print driver, as the spooler will take huge chunk of CPU to connect the user. Clogged profile; make sure the user profile is not locked up ...

Verify your remote named pipe connection string, for a named instance the format is \\<computer_name>\pipe\MSSQL$<instance_name>\sql\query https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/sql/sql-server-2008-r2/ms189307(v=sql.105)?redirectedfrom=MSDN

Several possibilities. There is an update for Server 2016 and 2019 for slow performance and unresponsive explorer process due to duplicate firewall rules created by the App packages in the User Profiles. It requires an registry key to be set (DeleteUserAppContainersOnLogoff) to enable cleanup of profile rules. Server 2016: https://support.microsoft.com/en-...

We experience similar issues with a VB6 app which using comctl32.ocx. The treeview became insensitive, no repaint, but no crash either, like if it was not receiving events. The app's File menu was working and you could exit etc. Fixed by changing comctl32.ocx to mscomctl.ocx that delivers an equivalent treeview. We did this after learning that mscomctl.ocx ...

Thanks to Jason Ye's excellent answer (that has helped me in the past), it seems there's another way to run a Powershell script on your Azure VM from the Azure VM website portal. Click on your VM in the portal. Choose Run Command from the menu options (under Operations). Choose RunPowerShellScript from the list of command options. In the Powershell ...

I didn't managet to do this by modifying the .rdp. But a workaround is, to change the settings of the remote desktop connection application. In Preferences -> User Accounts you can add your account + password:
