Comment on FAQs for Microsoft Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) - Part 1 by Debrah

I am forwarding a question by our Infosec group. The local user account we are using for LAPS, User1, has a setting checked where the password never expires. Can this be unchecked? It is coming up on a report. I am trying to recall the specific settings. Thank you

I know this post is old, but I do not know how else to contact you. Do you have the part number for the Dell switch and Chelsio adapter you used in this setup.

Or at the very least you should maybe discuss the security implications of doing so, and how the exposure might be limited

Rick, I no longer update this blog post. The updated version is now in the wiki. Still need to add PowerShell Core, though.

Comment on Install and deploy the Always On VPN client by Jon

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 00:27:51 +0000

Having some trouble and hope you can point me in the right direction to troubleshoot. I've successfully edited the "MakeProfile.ps1" script with my companies parameters and it has successfully created both the VPN_Profile.ps1 script as well as the VPN_Profile.xml file which look correct. I've then successfully run the script on a few test clients while logged in as a local admin running powershell as an admin and... successfully deployed the script via an SCCM package however under both methods, I never see a VPN profile get created or a VPN adapter created in Network connections. I've searched Windows application, system, etc... logs, not sure where to start troubleshooting. The Microsoft deployment guide provides a powershell command to check for successful creation which seems wrong. Remote Access Always On VPN Deployment Guide for Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\\cimv2\\mdm\\dmmap -Class MDM_VPNv2_01 I get an error when running the command above from pg 61. When I run this - Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\cimv2\mdm\dmmap -Class MDM_VPNv2_01 I get no return . After running the script manually as admin, teh return is: Always On: ByPassForLocal: DNSSuffix: EDPModeID: InstanceID: %20AlwaysOn%VPN Lockdown: ParentID:./Vendor/MSFT/VPNv2 ProfileXML: RememberCredentials: TrustedNetworkDetection: PSComputerName: "Created Always On VPN Profile." Script Complete Appreciate suggestions/input. Thank you,

We have had the same issue on and off since we started, I opened a ticket with Microsoft to get this sorted out.  Out environment is fully patched,  All servers are server 2012 r2.  We are using RDVH servers, Also we are using Microsoft Virtual Desktops.  No Citrix or anything.  All that to say we have been working with Microsoft support to get it fixed and they actually could not help and basically said this is a known issue that only half of their customers experience and it is not high enough on the priority list for the engineers to work on fixing.  Just my thoughts on the matter.  We use a program called SIDDer to help fix the problem with it happens.  This program shows what UPD goes to which Username.  Which greatly reduces the time to fix the issue.   We have about 20 users that experience this issue on a weekly basis.  I am curious if this FSlogic product could help us in our environment.

Comment on Increase PowerShell remoting security with two simple techniques by Michael Pietroforte

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:08:17 +0000

Session configurations are too complicated for this purpose. If you just want to give your account temporary admin rights to get a certain job done, you don't want to figure out first how to modify the session configuration for this particular job. Session configurations are good if you want to restrict the rights of an admin for a long-term project, not if you quickly need admin rights on a machine. Compare this with the sudo and su command on Linux. If you quickly need root access to do a couple of admin things, you enter su. If you want that a user can run certain administrative commands for a project, you change the sudo configuration.

PowerShell Just Enough Administration should be a better solution than this method. As long as you are on PowerShell 5.1, you are set. You can limit the session and role access. Role configuration controls what cmdlet the user account can execute. Session configuration controls who has session access.

Hello Michael: Is there a way to "save" the configuration? The fix works perfect for me but if the laptop is restarted or turned off, the whole process has to be repeated from scratch like it was never done. Thanks for your help.

By default only the administrators can use this configuration. So if you as Admin1 create a session configuration with your credentials, let's say Admin2 can also use this configuration and will act under your credentials. You could restrict the usage of your configuration with Set-PSSessionConfiguration only to you, but the other Admin could change it without any problems.
