Microsoft Edge on Server 2019/2016 (and Citrix)

KB ID 0001657 Problem In a fit of lunacy Microsoft have called ‘their’ new browser Microsoft Edge, so we can spend the next few months confusing it with Edge. Plus every Google search for GPO settings, error messages etc will all now show search results for the old Edge Browser not the new Microsoft Edge browser!

Get Ready for LDAPS Channel Binding

KB ID 0001645 Problem I have written about Enabling LDAPS a long time ago, but it’s a subject that’s about to become important again, so I’ll revisit the subject. Microsoft are about to ‘enforce’ LDAPS authentication against their domain controllers, in the March 2020 round of updates. Now delayed until second half of 2020. What does that mean?
