What shadowing a user’s session might look like. Once the administrator is finished shadowing the session, he can simply close the shadow window. VDI and data deduplication Windows Server 2012 previously introduced a feature called data deduplication that allowed more data to be stored in less physical disk space. Data deduplication is highly scalable and is designed to safeguard the reliability and integrity of your data. New in RDS in Windows Server 2012 R2 is the ability to use data deduplication with actively running personal desktop collections in virtual desktop interface (VDI) environments. To implement this feature, the desktop virtual hard disks (VHDs) must be stored on a file server running Windows Server 2012 R2 and accessed by using Server Message Block (SMB) version 3.0. The benefit provided by this new capability is that you are able to dramatically reduce the storage requirements for personal VDI scenarios.

Learn more CHAPTER 9 173 Restricted Admin mode Restricted Admin mode is a new optional mode you can use when launching the Remote Desktop Connection client (mstsc.exe) from the command line. When you specify the Restricted Admin switch with mstsc.exe in order to connect to a remote desktop host running Windows Server 2012 R2, your credentials are not sent to the host. If the RDS server verifies that your user account has administrator rights and supports Restricted Admin mode, the connection attempt succeeds. Otherwise, the connection attempt fails. Restricted Admin mode does not send your credentials to the RDS server as plaintext or any other reusable forms. It works only if the client and server are running either Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows 8.1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
