Recently during a DR Test we wanted to change the Address on the RDP file that was being downloaded for the Remote Desktop Gateway.

Someone has put together a nicescript that can do it here : 

https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Change-published-FQDN-for-2a029b80

However the file still has the old address in this line : gatewayhostname:s:

You can change this using powershell per below

Import-Module RemoteDesktop

Set-RDSessionCollectionConfiguration -CollectionName “Finance Staff RDP” -CustomRdpProperty “gatewayhostname:s:rdssb.office.domain.com

Recently was trying to save credentials logging into a management server and it would ask for a password each time
 
Computer configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Connection Client
 
Do not allow passwords to be saved was set to “Enabled”
 
Computer configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Security
 
Always prompt for password upon connection was set to “Enabled”
 
Removing both of these fixed the issue

Setting up some new Ubiquiti Wifi Access points, on reboot the Wifi SSID would show for a bit then disappear. A look at the Radio’s on the devices came up as Auto (Disabled)

By Default, the Ubiqiti controller Site Setting has  “Enable Connectivity Monitor and Wireless Uplink” enabled by default. This means if the Access points can’t connect ( ping )  the gateways defined in Network they will no enable the SSID broadcast ( and disable Wireless )

You can disable this setting, but you probably want to update the Gateway in the Network details to the correct one , and make sure DHCP is running or set static and make sure it can communicate to the gateway

Possibly caused by updates this week.


You need to delete the Recycle bin that is within the user profile section.

 

You can either shadow the user and browse to C:\users\%username% and delete the $recycle.bin folder or get the user to log off, then mount the VHDK file and delete it that way.

 

Users are able to then delete form the desktop.
