  • Thanks Mike, it worked like a charm.

  • I'm using this application for more then 6 years now and have never found any reason to not use it.
    Since 3 years it's even the default Manager within our organization for server connection management.

    Personally I can't live without it.

  • Hi Mike

    Thank you for this great article, really one of the best in this topic! 

    Maybe you can help me with my question. I have deployed the printers from the print server, in this case they are under GPO User ConfigurationPoliciesWindows SettingsDeployed Printers 
    What is the difference between you method any mine? 

    I'm experience issues with the reliability. Some users don't get the desired printers.

    Thank you for your help.

    Best Regards

  • Hi Swapnil,

    Thanks for the excellent post. I have this query about Docker EE on Windows Server 2019 - as I understand from what you mention here and from my own personal experience that one cannot run a Linux container on a Windows Server 2019 as easily as you can on Windows 10 (with Docker CE). On Windows 10 (with Docker CE) there is an out of box support for running Linux containers (one just has to switch to Linux containers in the Docker UI) - I really struggle to see as to why was is this out of the box experience missing for Windows Server 2019? 

    Also, what would you suggest if one wishes to run Linux containers in production and the host operating system is constrained to Windows Server 2019? Clearly LCOW is ruled out since it still experimental.

    I am looking forward to your forth coming post about LinuxKit and Linux Subsystem 2 - can one use them in production?

    Thanks and Regards,

  • VS Code extension Unicode Substitutions does a great job of fixing this issue.

  • if you modify base image.. time to start again from scratch.

  • And another network tool that can help you is MiTeC Network Scanner, a multi-use freeware tool.

    It is a free multi-threaded ICMP, Port, IP, NetBIOS, ActiveDirectory and SNMP scanner with many advanced features. It is intended for both system administrators and general users who are interested in computer security. The program performs ping sweep, scans for opened TCP and UDP ports, resource shares and services.
    For devices with SNMP capability available interfaces are detected and basic properties displayed.
    In addition you have to edit results, save/load results to/from CSV and print network device list and any data in any section can be exported to CSV.
    It can also resolve host names and auto-detect your local IP range.

    Scan features:ActiveDirectory
    Network neighbourhood
    Ping (ICMP)
    IP Address
    MAC Address (even across routers)
    MAC Vendor
    Device name
    Device domain/workgroup
    Logged user
    Operating system
    BIOS, Model and CPU
    System time and Up time
    Device description
    Type flags (SQL server, Domain controller etc.)
    Remote device date and time
    TCP and UDP port scanning
    SNMP services.
    Installed services on device
    Shared resources
    Open Files

  • This worked.  I followed the instructions to get it working via GPO.  But for "Checking another setting for troubleshooting" there is a second GPO setting I had to disable.  Computer Configuration - Policies - Administration Templates - System - Internet Communication Management - Internet Communication Settings . . . and then make sure "Turn off access to all Windows Update features" is set to Not Configured.  This also will block it from installing.  Thanks!
