Another RunAs Hint–TSAdmin.msc

Posted by Russell Wright on November 29, 2012

Terminal Services Administrator RunAs string in a big company domain with UAC enforced by policy (no GPEdit here).  Problem is "the requested operation requires elevation."

Trick is to use the /netonly switch.

C:\Windows\system32>runas /netonly /user:domain\userid "mmc %windir%\system32\tsadmin.msc"

Microsoft Office 365 Lync “Sharing failed to connect due to network issues”

Posted by Russell Wright on November 29, 2012

This problem was caused by Kaspersky Antivirus 2012.  This is NOT Kaspersky Internet Security.

Trying to share my screen in Lync 2010.

Received errors:

Sharing failed to connect due to network issues.

Screen sharing stopped due to server connectivity issues.

Sharing ended due to network issues.

Stopping Kaspersky Antivirus fixed the issue, so how do you configure an exception for Lync?

Open Kaspersky

Click Settings.
