1803 and issues with Essentials
Follow up to this
- If the multiple reboot trick doesn’t work, try the following: “Lost the connector altogether on several systems after the 1803 update and subsequent connector re installation attempts failed. Reapplying Windows10.0-KB2790621-x64 on Windows 10 Version 1803 allows the Server Essentials Connector to successfully install.”
- The issue with VPN got fixed with the May 8th update for 1803 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4103721 Addresses an issue that prevents certain VPN apps from working on builds of Windows 10, version 1803. These apps were developed using an SDK version that precedes Windows 10, version 1803, and use the public RasSetEntryProperties API.
Tracking another issue – this time only with Server 2016 Essentials.
Impact to Azure integration and Office 365 integration:
Microsoft cloud integration did not succeed. And the account used is an Admin.
Microsoft alerted, hang loose.
One of the interesting things I’m seeing in the backup space is the increasing number of vendors that are offering up cloud backups. But… the big problem I see in some of the offerings is the less than stellar means to restore those backups.
Recently I’ve been struggling to find a good solid way to backup AND restore to a different location – Quickbooks online. There are online backup vendors out there, but to restore the data to another cloud subscription (in our case we want a capture of the QB at a certain point in time), it was hard to find a cloud backup that worked flawless in the restore process.
One alternative I’ve found is to make a desktop conversion from the online Quickbooks. The trick is to hack up the browser a bit, and to run all programs with full admin rights in order to export out the data.

Not pretty is it? But it does work to get a full and complete backup of the entire Quickbooks online database.
