Slow / Sluggish mouse movement for RDP to Windows 2012 R2.

Published RDP connection from Xenapp 6.5 to a Windows 2012 R2 server will come up with an slow and sluggish mouse pointer.

To solve this issue

Turning off mouse shadows on the RDP destination solves the issue for us.

launch the ICA-published mstsc to connect to the 2012 R2 server,
right click the start button -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Performance Settings ->

uncheck “Show Shadows Under Mouse Cursor” -> OK,

if this was allready unchecked, check it, apply settings and uncheck again,

the mouse pointer immediately changes back to normal performance.

Windows Experience Index (WEI) in Windows 8.1

0

Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT), is still there in Windows 8.1, however. To find your scores, you just need to type a couple of commands from the command line.

 

  1. Start a command prompt (run as administrator),
  2. type “winsat prepop” and press Enter. This will start the benchmark measurement and will store the results as XML files.
  3. Start Windows Powershell as administrator,
  4. type “Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_WinSAT” and press Enter. This will analyze the results of the previous created XML files
  5. Now the scores will be presented in the windows.
    • CPUScore is the score for the processors on the PC.
    • D3DScore is the score for the 3D graphics capabilities of the PC.
    • DiskScore is the score for the sequential read throughput on the system hard disk.
    • GraphicsScore is the score for the graphics capabilities of the PC.
    • MemoryScore is the score for the memory throughput and capacity of the PC
    • WinSPRLevel is the base score, it is just the lowest score of the five categories.

Windows 2008 R2 allow anonymous access to a folder or share

0

2 possibilities to connect :

1. connect as ‘Guest’ (such as from a machine not joined to a domain),
2. connect as ‘Anonymous’. If you use something like PowerShell or CMD remoting (to run a command line Invoke-Command -Computer example { dir \\fileshare\folder }’ then you connect as ‘Anonymous’

 

For “Guest” :

1. ‘Everyone’ needed *share* permissions (you probably could just get away with ‘Guest’) 2. <hostname of local machine>\Guest needed *file* permissions 3. The group policy setting “Deny access to this computer from the network” cannot contain ‘Guest’ 4. The group policy settings “Accounts: Guest account status” must be ‘Enabled’ 5. The Guest account on the machine needed to be enabled ———–

For ‘Anonymous’ :

1. ‘Everyone’ has share permissions 2. ‘Everyone’ has file permissions 3. The group policy setting ‘Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users needed to be enabled 4. The group policy setting ‘Network access: Shares that can be accessed anonymously’ needed to contain the share name

The ‘named pipe’ settings did not seem to effect my results.

 

 

Citrix – Windows Login Prompt when Launching Apps

0

I was getting a windows login prompt when launching a published Citrix app (XenApp).

After checking all requirements like :

1. RDS Configuration console and check the properties of ICA-tcp.
On the “Log on Settings” tab, make sure that “Always prompt for password” is uncheck

2. local policies and make sure that “Always prompt for password upon connection” is not enabled.

 

It turned out that there suddenly was a missing registry key at location : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

Group Policy Result : An error occurred while generating report: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

0

 

When running a Group Policy Result of a remote system the GPMC admin console shows this error :

GPMC-01

 

 

 

 

“An error occurred while generating report: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.”

GPMC-02

 

 

When running a GPresult from command prompt to a remote system this error appeared :

“gpresult ERROR: Invalid pointer”

 

The solution :

In the preferences I was creating an extra local administrator user.

GPMC-03

 

 

 

Changing the option from create to update fixed the problem.

GPMC-04

 

 

 

 

 

GPMC-05

 

 

 

 

 

 

After changing the setting from create to update,
then a GPupdate / force on the remote system and I was able to query via GPMC the remote system for a Group Policy result.

 

This must be some sort of  “extra feauture”.

 

 

———————-

 

In my case a GPO was set :

“Disable Automatic Install of Internet Explorer components.”

After changing the setting to not configured, then a GPupdate / force on the remote system and I was able to query via GPMC the remote system for a Group Policy result.

 

 

I also re-edited the preferences, just openened en clicked OK again.

 

and edited the GPO restrict unauthenticated RPC clients
