Recently trying to splin an enviroment up in DR and upon login to the RDS Gateway , I was getting the below

RD Gateway and RemoteApp Error: Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote  computer "RDS.Domain.Local" for one of these reasons - Ultimate Support for  IT Pros - ThirdTier

Logging into the RDGateway showing the following event from the RDS Gateway

“The user “DOMAIN\Username“, on client computer “IP”, did not meet connection authorization policy requirements and was therefore not authorized to access the RD Gateway server. The authentication method used was: “NTLM” and connection protocol used: “HTTP”. The following error occurred: “23003”.

I had a look on the NPS Role ( Network Policy and Access Services” and saw that the user was trying to be authenticated locally instead of the remote Radius Server that was set in The RDGateway

“Remote RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) server group does not exist”

I rebooted the Gateway and this fixed the issue , I think it had come up before the domain or radius serverv.

Recently I enabled IP Helper on a subnet instead of using DHCP Filters for EUFI Booting. This resolved getting EUFI Machines booting off of the MDT server , however, legacy computers would not work  coming up the error below

To resolve this I increase the scratch Space Size and Completely regenerated Deployment Share and reimported the .wim in to the Windows Deployment Server

When you can’t shutdown or power off a VM , this is how to force kill it

Open this directory in File Explorer and find the folder with the same name as your virtual machine has. Copy the GUID that is specified in the name of the VM configuration file with the *.vmcx extension.

Run the Task Manager and go to the Details tab. All virtual machines are running in their own instance of vmwp.exe. To determine which process is responsible for your VM, you need the GUID of the hung-up VM you obtained earlier. Locate the process vmwp.exe that has the GUID of your VM in the User name column. Kill this process (End Task).
