    Server 2016 loses gateway on ESXi 6.5

    I was chasing this problem for months until I finally came across this link from VMware. Of particular interest was this note:

    Note: VMware Tools 10.3.0 is deprecated due to a VMXNET3 driver related issue. For more information, see KB 57796. Install VMware Tools 10.3.2, or VMware Tools 10.2.5 or an earlier version of VMware Tools.

    Terminal Server Easy Print not printing

    When trying to print from an RDP session, the redirected printers did appear but nothing ever happened. The local client had no problems.

    The server had the domain role as well as the terminal services role already running so this article seemed applicable.

    1. Click Start, search for cmd.exe
    2. Right click on cmd.exe
    3. Click on ‘Run as Administrator’
    4. Type “C:\” w/o the quotation marks and then Press Enter.
    5. Type CD \Windows\System32\Spool  and then Press Enter.
    6. Type Cacls.exe PRINTERS /e /g users:C and then Press Enter.
    7. Restart the computer

    After the reboot, all printing was successful.

    The article still waves its finger in the more information section:

    The exception is on Microsoft Windows Small Business Servers (SBS).
