We have Remote Desktop published through Web Application Proxy, both running on Server 2012 R2.

 

The RDS application in WAP is configured for pass-through authentication so users can connect from both Windows and non-Windows ("rich apps" on Android/iOS/Mac) devices. This has been working for the past few years without issue.

 

After installing recent update KB4534309 (or the rollup that contains it, KB4534297), the non-Windows clients are unable to connect. They show error 0x3000008 during the "initiating remote connection" phase:

We couldn't connect to the gateway because of an error. If this keeps happening, ask your admin or tech support for help.

Has anyone experienced this or figured out a way to fix it?

@Andrew Colombino no help for now but take a look at VMware View, which is a VDI solution, for the long term.

 

Have been working with Windows 2012 R2 RDS and App publishing for years now and for about 5 years now I'm using VMware View as well.

 

EVERYTHING about RDS is just ridiculous in comparison to VMware View. User experience, administrability, performance, everything.

 

Windows is just crap (now).
