General Information

The Endpoint Services (EPS) team has packaged the latest version of Microsoft Remote Desktop v10 and released it to Munki's production catalogs where it will automatically replace v8. At first launch, it may appear to end users that v10 has deleted their existing remote connections, but they simply need to be imported. Here's how:

  • With Microsoft Remote Desktop open, go to Connections → Import from Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.

  • If you receive a keychain prompt, enter your login keychain password and click Always Allow. (If you have not opted to store any Remote Desktop Connection credentials, you won't see this prompt).

  • Microsoft Remote Desktop will import your connections and report Import done!

  • You should now see a list of your imported connections.
