Virtual Desktops Appear as “Not Registered” in the Console

To resolve the issue, grant the logon right, Access this computer from the network to the Delivery Controller machine account(s).

This can be modified directly on the VDA (recommended for testing):

  1. To edit the policy directly on the VDA, use Local Computer Policy editor (MMC, then add the Snap-In Local Computer Policy.)
  2. The policy is located in Computer Configuration –>Windows Settings –>Security Settings –>Local Policies –>User Rights Assignment
  3. Locate “Access this computer from the network”
  4. Click ‘Add User or Group’. Change the Object Types to include “Computers”.
  5. Type the names of the Delivery Controller(s). Click ‘Check Names’. Click OK to save the change. There will be several warnings.

Once this is determined to resolve the OU-based registration issue, policy can be applied to all the VDA’s by completing one of the following tasks:

  • Apply a group policy from the domain controller either to the domain as a whole or to an Organizational Unit containing the Virtual Desktops for the XenDesktop farm.

If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF17 or higher. (16.0.478)
This change is not included in any release of Reflection Desktop 16.1 but will be in a future Reflection Desktop release.
The ability to copy, then paste a range of data (Paste Range), has been added to Reflection Desktop and allows users to paste large amounts of data across multiple fields and across multiple host pages. This feature can be accessed by copying a large amount of data to the Windows clipboard and then going to Edit | Paste Range in the Reflection session window.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly. A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing. It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.

Microsoft Windows Security Updates August 2018 release overview

Microsoft released security updates for Windows, Office, and other company products on the August 2018 Patch Tuesday (Update Tuesday).

How to download and install the August 2018 security updates

microsoft windows security updates august 2018

Most home PCs that run Windows use Windows Update for update checks, downloads, and installs. Organizations use Enterprise-specific update tools usually to download and deploy updates.

The Microsoft Update Catalog website offers a third-option to download and install updates.

Windows users who use Windows Update can run manual checks for updates to get updates installed immediately when they are released.

While it is recommended that you wait before you install updates, as updates may break things (and have numerous times in the past), you may do the following to install them when they are available:

  1. Tap on the Windows-key to display the Start menu.
  2. Type Windows Update and select the option.
  3. Select check for updates to install the updates.

HOW TO: Ways to fix Outlook error ‘cannot open your default email folders’

Microsoft Outlook may be the most widely used email service around the globe, but users have come to accept the good with the very bad. Yes, Outlook offers an extensive and exclusive range of features as well as its friendly user experience. But there’s the flip side: User forums are filled with anger over errors that seem to have zero solutions. For this article, we will examine and hopefully resolve perhaps the most common Outlook error: “cannot open your default email folders.” This Outlook error mostly appears when you are trying to open your Outlook profile. It generally happens because of a corrupted OST file or the execution of Outlook in compatibility mode.

Why OST file corruption happens

OST files are the files that allow users to use Outlook while they are offline. It is actually a synchronized copied element of the accounts saved on your device that enables you to continue to use Outlook even when the program gets disconnected from MS Exchange Server.

These files can become corrupted because of various reasons. Some of the reasons are:

  • Deletion of any file or folder removed from Exchange folder.
  • Intrusion of any malware or virus.
  • Disruption in the file synchronization process due to sudden or abnormal shutdown failure.
  • Some internal discrepancies in Outlook causing abnormal Outlook termination.
  • Creation of some bad sectors in the hard drive where the OST file is stored.
  • Failure of any networking device that might disrupt the synchronizing process of the OST file.
  • Any changes in the internal structures of the OST file.
  • Installed plugins sometimes may damage Outlook performance, thus causing damage to the OST file.

Fixing OST file corruption

Here’s some ways to begin fixing the problem:

  1. Remove those profiles that are not being used from the address “Control Panel > Mail > Show profiles.”
  2. Create another copy of OST file.
  3. Even if the error doesn’t get resolved, create another new profile from while using Outlook Profile Helper or manually.

Outlook error caused by running in compatibility mode

Outlook Error
You might have witnessed these errors:

Cannot open your default email folders. Information store could not be opened,”

or

“Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The server is not available. Contact your administrator if this condition persists.”

or

“Cannot display the folder. File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file C:Usersusernamelocalsettingsapplication datamicrosoftoutlookoutlook.ost”

If you have enabled compatibility mode mistakenly, just disable it. If you haven’t, do not enable it for Outlook. Users typically enable it when they are required to run the troubleshoot compatibility wizard. Also, compatibility mode is not required for any version of Outlook on Vista or Windows 7 or any other Windows OS. This mode is also not needed for any application that is supported on any Windows OS or for recently released applications.

The user can switch off compatibility mode in a 64-bit operating system by following these easy steps:

  • Switch to the mentioned address “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice XXOutlook.exe”
  • Right-click on exe and then follow up by clicking on Properties then Compatibility tab.
  • Uncheck the checkbox called “Run this program in compatibility mode” box, thereafter click Apply and OK.

And in case, you are unable to place the Compatibility tab, follow the following steps:

  • Click on Startand search for Program Compatibility Troubleshooter.
  • Start Program Compatibility Troubleshooter; select Next option to proceed.
  • Select Outlook XX from the appeared list of programs. Following the steps of the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter.
  • Switch to the mentioned address “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice XXOutlook.exe”
  • Right-click on exe and then follow up by clicking on Properties then Compatibility tab.
  • Uncheck the checkbox called “Run this program in compatibility mode” box, thereafter click Apply and OK.

If this issue is experienced over an Exchange email account that is configured on your Outlook, you can diagnose the error by trying the following steps:

  1. If your program is executing along with a running Windows Server and/or over a firewall, then disable the firewall and then connect it with the server directly without any firewall.
  2. If this Outlook error gets resolved, then you will be required to reconfigure your firewall to allow Exchange to sync.
  3. And if the Outlook error still persists even after disabling the firewall, create a new mail profile from Outlook. You will also need to reconfigure your account.

Dell EMC Services Named SI & Consulting Windows 10 Global Deployment Partner of the Year

EMC logo


Is Windows 10 part of your digital workplace strategy? We can help.

Microsoft has named Dell EMC Services the “2018 SI & Consulting Windows 10 Global Deployment Partner of the Year.” The award was presented to Dell by the Microsoft One Commercial Partner (OCP) team at last month’s Microsoft Inspire.

Janet Chess, Aaron Whitley, Fouad Ketani, Julie Watkins, Victor Morales, Mark Cabot, Nagi Punyamurthula, Wade Parsons

 

2018 marks the 8th consecutive year that Microsoft has recognized Dell as its “Partner of the Year” for Windows deployment.  Dell also earned this year’s “FY18 US Marketing Top Commercial Windows 10 Deployment Partner” award from the US Microsoft 365 team.

Bill Clark, Phil Dakas, Margaret Arakawa, Chris Wright, Mark Cabot, Julie Watkins, Cyril Belikoff

 

The awards recognize Dell EMC Services as the #1 Global SI (Systems Integrator) for Windows 10—as well as the investments that Dell has made to make it easier for enterprises worldwide to deploy and migrate to Windows 10 and leverage the Microsoft 365-Modern Workplace.

Windows 10 is ready…  are you?

Windows 10 is the fastest-growing Windows operating system in history.

In today’s world, with security of utmost importance, Windows 10 is Microsoft’s most secure Client OS to-date. For example, the Windows 10 secure boot process ensures only approved firmware can be loaded and only approved apps started. Windows 10 also enables automatic encryption of data and multifactor authentication.

Since most breaches originate from the client device, enterprises cannot afford to wait to migrate to Windows 10.

If your organization hasn’t fully migrated to Windows 10, you’re not alone. But with the clock ticking down to January 14, 2020 when support for Windows 7 ends, now is a good time to investigate what Dell EMC Services can do as your Windows 10 solution provider.

Start with a big-picture Workforce Transformation strategy for how to best leverage Windows 10 as part of a cohesive digital workplace and end-user services plan.  We can help customize and integrate end-to-end Microsoft solutions into the existing environment and determine the right mix of on-premises, cloud, or hybrid deployment for Windows 10 and Office 365.

The Dell Client Deployment Assessment service evaluates current practices and recommends and develops an action plan for Windows 10 migration. If device renewal is part of the plan, the Dell ProDeploy Client Suite service provides expert configuration and installation, reducing deployment time for new client systems by up to 35 percent.[1]  With Dell PC as a Service, organizations can opt to combine hardware, software, lifecycle management and financing into one price for everything per-seat-per-month service.

What about WaaS?

With the new Windows as a Service (WaaS) OS upgrade model, Windows releases become incremental.  Updates are delivered in smaller packages more frequently—a couple of times a year, rather than in one big package every 3-5 years. Users and administrators get new features and capabilities faster—and IT can say goodbye to disruptive, large-scale Windows OS migrations.

While incremental updating is a routine event with over-the-counter software and mobile devices, WaaS will shift how IT manages its enterprise Windows environment.  To help IT organizations ease the transition to Windows 10 updates as an ongoing maintenance activity, we created Dell Windows as a Service. Developed with Microsoft and built on the Microsoft WaaS framework, this new managed service leverages Dell EMC’s global Windows expertise to help internal teams take a policy-based and programmatic approach to updates and get up to speed on everything from identifying applications for additional testing to handling pilot release and production rollouts.

Most secure Windows ever

Another new managed service: Dell Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection Managed Service is designed to help IT organizations augment the strength of Windows Defender ATP in Windows 10. Dell security professionals apply a range of cybersecurity methodologies and solutions to help protect users, data, and IP. The service helps organizations prevent and detect cyberattacks, as well as provides specific guidance and support for investigating and responding to attacks and other malicious behaviors.

All-in with Windows 10

At Dell, we’re all in with Windows 10.  It’s why we migrated 100% of our own workforce to Windows 10 in 2017—and why we’re working with companies of all kinds to accelerate and ease migration to Microsoft 365 (integrating Windows10 Enterprise, Office 365 Suite and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EM+S)).

Learn more about how Dell EMC consulting, deployment, integration, training and support services make it easier to enable people to work and collaborate securely, anywhere, on any device, to get digital business done. Contact your Dell EMC representative. 

[1] May 2016 Principled Technologies Report commissioned by Dell EMC. Testing results extrapolated from a 10-system deployment to project time savings for larger deployment compared to in-house manual deployment. Actual results will vary.

FIX: Outlook error when sharing calendar in Windows 10

Do you get the Outlook error when sharing calendar? If you have Office 365 or any other Microsoft Exchange email service, Outlook can be used on the web to share your calendar with others in and outside of your organization.

Depending on the permissions given, others can only view your calendar, edit, or act as your delegate for meeting requests.

The Outlook error when sharing calendar can happen due to configuration or permission issues. Some users have reported that removing current permissions besides the Default and Anonymous resolves the issue.

However, if the error persists, repair Office from Control Panel, and if it fails, download and run the Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer tool 2.2, which analyzes Office programs for known configurations that can cause issues.

If you don’t have the option to share your calendar (maybe it is grayed out), it can also be because your network admin or IT support set a policy preventing calendar sharing among people in the office.

Fortunately, there are ways to fix the Outlook error when sharing calendar as listed below.

Outlook won’t share calendar, how do I fix that?

Just received an email “Symantec Security Cloud News Article – Upgrade News”

I need a solution

In this email it states:

Impact

All Windows devices that are currently enrolled in SEP Cloud will automatically be updated in the background, using LiveUpdate. This update does not affect the security of your devices.

Action Required

Windows device restart
All users with Windows devices will be prompted to restart their devices after the update.

——————–

We cannot have client machines restarting themseles unless scheduled off hours, prompting would be bad too Can the restart be scheduled from the portal or the prompts, supressed? Since none of our new portal settingsconfig have worked on any clients since this large switch to endpoint protection cloud we cannot see if this is even an option.

Can others see if there is an option to schedule these restarts in the portal for issues like above? Perhaps we will be moving away from SEP. The transition between these 2 versions has been poor to say the least.
