  1. Make User Profile disks work for more than one collection! You often need more than one app collection for apps that cannot coexist on 1RDSH

    Make User Profile disks work for more than one collection! You often need more than one app collection for apps that cannot coexist on a server farm. Now you need to create a dedicated UPD for each collection or VDI. Please make it possible to share it.

  2. Server 2019 - UPD profile folder not deleted during logoff

    Hi.

    When using User Profile Disk in an RDS environment on Server 2019, the profile folder is not fully removed during logoff. This causes several folders with the users name in C:\Users.

    It is always the same 3 files remaining in the same path.
    Path: C:\Users&lt;username>.000.001.002\AppData\Local\ConnectedDevicesPlatform\L.<username>
    Files: ActivitiesCache.db + ActivitiesCache.db-shm + ActivitiesCache.db-wal

    The issue is not present for Server 2016.

  3. Host list / address book

    Make the host adress book sync to one drive or o365 account and shareable with colleagues so that when the windows client is re-installed one doesn’t have to re-create all hosts

  5. User Profile Disks - RDS

    Include in the RDS Collection settings a checkbox for 'Appdata/Local/Microsoft/Office/16.0/Licensing' - as well as v15..
    This way when users have to manually activate office 365 - their activation token and license is able to roam the RDS session hosts as their user uses the environment daily..

  6. Pop up Window before Printing

    I have recognized that often to many pages from an Email are printed out, that is not good for our environmental. My proposal is to have a possibility to set up in outlook a “pop up window” (on demand) = e.g. = do you want to print all pages, are you sure?
    I know there is the possibility to choose which pages do you want to print, but many people are using the button "high speed printing”.

  7. Add client name column under RDS connections

    My main problem is, if I choose a collection, and want to see the connections on this collection, I can see the folowing column : server fqdn, user, session state, ID, log on time, disconnect and idle time but I cannot see the client name. Is there a way to add this column ?

  9. I think you should let people know what you're doing to them first. You should probably get their signatures instead of deleting their e-sig

  11. Vulnarability

    Hi,

    Using Objective See's Dylib Hijack Scanner or DHS, I was able to detect that some of your resources are susceptible to a very nasty MacOS attack.
    /Applications/Microsoft Remote Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/Microsoft Remote Desktop
    rpath vulnerability: /usr/lib/swift/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib

    /Applications/Microsoft Remote Desktop.app/Contents/PlugIns/QuicklookExtension.appex/Contents/MacOS/QuicklookExtension
    rpath vulnerability: /usr/lib/swift/ClientShared.framework/Versions/A/ClientShared

    The scanner is here: https://objective-see.com/products/dhs.html

    You can read here about the attack here - https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.synack.com/canSecW.pdf

    This software vendor is highly reputable, I recommend you to use it so it can list all the susceptible resources.

    I have 167 companies to inform today...

    Kind Regards
    Good luck
