A customer was using Sharepoint via office 365 using Drive Mappings to their different libraries. We use Network locations deployed via group policy to enable users to access files in Windows Explorer. The customer uses 2fa however we have AD Premium P1 Licenses to whitelist the Office IP’s.

The customer would need to login to Internet explorer once and save the browser cookie and the drives would map.

This was working fine until we enabled AAD connect Single Sign in their environment to simplify signing in. Drives would suddenly start to drop off randomly. Remapping a single library manually by going to any one of the libraries and choosing “View in File Explorer” per below would fix the issue until the next day

Remove the AAD connect Single Sign in from their environment resolved the issue …. must be a bug with SSO and Passing through Sharepoint libraries in IE

Recently when trying to login to a Citrix XenApp Server ( OS Server 2012 R2 ) users were getting a frozen Welcome Screen. The loading ‘Circle” would just stop and go no further.

Rebooting the cluster ( Datacollectors/Storefront and XenApp Servers ) did not resolve the issue. The session would start to load then go no further. I could login to the server via the console just not through the receiver.

Logging into the Data Collector I was greeted with 

“Trial Period Expired”

Checking the Licensing Tab showed no available licenses. I wasn’t able to check the original licenses so I created a temp account to setup a Trial License of 90 days

Create Trial Citrix Licenses

  1. Navigate to www.citrix.com and select Sign In (located in the upper right hand corner).
  2. Sign in using your My Account login credentials 
  3. Hover over the Downloads Tab and select Free Trials 
  4. Select the product you are trying to evaluate 
  5. Proceed to follow the prompts to request the product of choice

Had a ticket regarding 3 different sent emails to 3 different third parties which were getting duplicated into an IT mailbox on Office 365.

I double checked the “rules” under Mail flow to make sure there were no BCC rules for the users sending which there were not.

In MailTrace the emails came up as Status “Expanded”. This means the email has been sent to a group, however the original email was sent to a Single External Email address?

Why was the external email being displayed as a group in 365?

Turns Out the Outbound Spam Preferences had been turned on! And for whatever reason, these items were triggering the BCC of suspicious messages!

Recently trying to release and whitelist an item using Barracuda’s cloud Spam filter. however was getting the below error:

The message couldn’t be downloaded either. Tried from Multiple pcs and still an issue

Trying the next day and the issue was fine which shows it must have been something on Barracuda’s side!
