An authentication error has occurred; this could be due to CredSSP encryption oracle remediation

Windows ServerThis error first came up early in 2018, but I’ve stumbled across it a couple of times recently and had to hunt around for the solution, so I am posting it here so I know where to find it next time.

Microsoft released an update to address vulnerabilities for the Credential Security Support Provider protocol (CredSSP) used by Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connections for Windows clients and Windows Server.

Since that hotfix came out, if you try to connect from a patched machine to an unpatched one, you receive this error:

CredSSP error

Remote Desktop Protocol

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

Remote computer: {server name}
This could be due to CredSSP encryption oracle remediation.

Enable Bitlocker on Removable Drive

WindowsWhen I joined ISC Software I was given a new laptop and associated peripherals which included a removable 1TB SSD. As this SSD travels with me, one of the first things I did was encrypt it with BitLocker.

To encrypt a drive with BitLocker, launch Windows Explorer, right click on the drive and select Turn BitLocker On. When the BitLocker Drive Encryption window appears, click Encrypt this drive using BitLocker Drive Encryption:

Disable IE Enhanced Security Configuration

Windows ServerI do a lot of work in virtual machines and this work often involves using the web browser; this is usually just for web client, SSRS or other similar local pages, but even then Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration will get in the way and need to be disabled.

I never remember where the setting for this is, so I am posting here to make it easy to find in future. To change the setting, open Server Manager; in the left pane, click Local Server:

Server Manager > Dashboard

In the main section of the page, click the word ON next to IE Enhanced Security Configuration:

How To Install Windows 10

WindowsThe installation process of Windows has changed a lot over the years; when I started doing installs it was from a 3½ inch floppy disk, but these days it is from a bootable USB drive.

I have previously posted about how to install Windows 8 and even the Windows 10 Technical Preview, but the current Windows 10 install is much different from both.

In this post, I am going to step through the installation of Windows 10 (1607 released on 13/02/2019). Once you have the media available to install, most likely using the US Tool I linked to above), ensure your computer, or virtual machine, is set to boot from the required device.

In this example, I am actually creating a virtual machine so have mounted the ISO in Hyper-V. When the VM is started, hit a key to boot from the mounted ISO:

Press any key to boot from CD or DVD...

Tool To Make A Bootable Windows USB Drive

WindowsBack in 2013, I posted an article on making a bootable Windows 8 USB drive; while this post is still relevant, the download link to the tool is no longer valid, due to Microsoft closing CodePlex.

The tool is still available; it can be downloaded directly from Microsoft here.
