Hello James,

I think I provided the exact steps in my original post. If this is not sufficient for Devolutions to repro in their own environment lets please set up a remote session - there is potentially sensitive information that I don't want in a recording.

RDM 2019.1.25.0

When using the RDM Duplicate function to create a new entry from an existing BeyondTrust Password Safe entry, the new entry continues to point to the original server. i.e.

  • Right-click on an existing BT entry, e.g. "ServerA", and select Duplicate
  • Go to the Advanced tab and refresh the list of servers in the System list
  • Select the new server name from the System list. e.g. "ServerB"
  • Save the connection
  • Connect to the new "ServerB" entry
  • Observe that a connection will be made to ServerA and not ServerB

This was not a problem in version 14.X where we used the Duplicate function regularly to create new BT entries. This is much faster than creating BT entries from scratch.

When I switch the display type to External it opens a PowerShell session and executes the "ConnectVIServer" command which fails. It looks like it is still using the PowerCLI methodology.

and I have now tried this on version 2019.1.21.0 as well .

Hi David,

I submitted the screen shot and other supporting information last week. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks

Thanks David,

I installed RDM 2019.1.20, created a new VMRC entry, entered the vCenter 6.0 name and the VM name. When I attempt to connect I get "The object has already been deleted or has not been completely created". The VCenter/VM names are good, my credentials are good and I can connect to this Vcenter using the RDM remote dashboard connection type.

Any thoughts ?

That's great David.

Another example of the outstanding support of RDM.

Hi,

For an RDM installation on a Windows 10 OS that already has Hyper-V enabled, if you try and install PowerCLi to get VMware Remote Console support for RDM, the PowerCLI installation will produce the following error:

PackageManagement\Install-Package : The following commands are already available on this system:'Export-VM,Get-Cluster,
Get-VM,Get-VMHost,Move-VM,New-Cluster,New-VM,Remove-Cluster,Remove-VM,Restart-VM,Set-VM,Set-VMHost,Start-VM,Stop-VM,Sus
pend-VM'. This module 'VMware.VimAutomation.Core' may override the existing commands. If you still want to install
this module 'VMware.VimAutomation.Core', use -AllowClobber parameter.



This is not an RDM issue but is due to the fact that Microsoft and VMware use the same commands. Given that this is RDM's methodology for a VMware remote console session, does Devolutions have any suggestions ? One of the posts in this thread https://communities.vmware.com/message/2786013#2786013 suggests a couple of workarounds but I'm not sure if this would help with RDM.

Hello,

Same problem here on two different Windows 10 machines, two different environments, firewalls, etc.
I can access the https://devolutions.net/products.htm url without issue.
Not a show stopper since you can still download the update manually, but "Check for Updates" is much more convenient.

Can Devolutions provide us with some guidance on their .NET 4.7.2 support ?

i.e. When the system cannot support .NET 4.7.2 such as on Windows 10 v1507, v1511 or in my case on a version of Windows 10 that supports 4.7.2 but can't be upgraded because the machine is a corporate asset that I have no control over, are we stuck with RDM version 13.6.7.0?

If we use a newer version of RDM than 13.6.7.0 and the installed version of .NET is 4.7.1 should we expect it to function correctly ? Will we get support from Devolutions if we have issues ?

Thanks

Hello,

Can you confirm that this is addressed in VERSION 14.0.11.0 ? I read the release notes and I don't see what would specifically change the behavior.

Thank you for your response Hubert. Do I understand correctly that you will add the missing tabs to this connection type in the RDM product or did you mean something else?

(see attached screen shot)

When configuring a regular RDP session, the configuration tabs are General, Display, Local Resources, Programs, Experience, Connection and Advanced.

When configuring the PasswordSafe Console connection type, the only options are General and Connection so its not possible to configure the settings on the missing tabs. Why is that and can this functionality be restored to the BeyondTrust PasswordSafe connection type ?

Thanks

Hi Jeff,

I'm using v14 happily on a machine with 4.7.2 installed but I also have another v13 installation with 4.7.1 and I'm not in control of the OS and .NET on that machine since its a corporate asset. Hence the question about v14 and 4.7.1 before I look at upgrading anything.

Thanks

Hi,

.NET 4.7.2 is spelled out as a requirement for RDM version 14. Will version 14 install on .NET 4.7.1 and if so are there any issues with version 14 in this configuration?

Thanks

"Do you mean embedded?"


Whatever you call it when you create new entry of the type "Web Browser (http/https)". The only options available for "Web browser application" are.IE/FireFox/Chrome. Is that what you mean by "embedded"?.

When adding or configuring an entry type of "Web Browser (http/https)" can you please add Edge as a browser choice in addition to the existing IE/FireFox/Chrome selections?
