Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 – OpenDNS

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/10

I did this a long time ago, but forgot to blog about it back then: [Archive.isWindows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 – OpenDNS.

Summary:

Start with the DNS manager:

%SystemRoot%\system32\dnsmgmt.msc /s

Then open your machine, and double-click Forwarders:

In the dialog, click the Edit button and add DNS servers (for instance Google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

In my case it became this:

Google DNS servers added

Google DNS servers added

Click Done buttons until all dialogs are closed.

When you cannot RDP to a target because of “CredSSP-encryption Oracle remediation”: apply your target security patches.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/29

If you get the below error, then your RDP target server needs to be patched.

You can choose to stay vulnerable and modify your policy or registry settings as explained in the first linked article below: that is a temporary “workaround” which I do not recommend. Please update your RDP target servers in stead.

English:

[Window Title]
Remote Desktop Connection

[Content]
An authentication error has occurred.
The function requested is not supported

Remote computer: rdp.example.org
This could be due to CredSSP-encryption Oracle remediation.

[OK]

0x8024400E error with WSUS SP2

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/16

From a note a very long time ago: [WayBack0x8024400E error with WSUS SP2

TL;DR:

  1. ensure you have at least KB2938066 installed.
  2. while upgrading WSUS, ensure you reboot the server after each update.
