CredSSP Encryption Oracle Remediation Error

Recently Microsoft introduced updates for Windows addressing a Credential Security Support Provider protocol (CredSSP) vulerability.  If the updates are applied to local PC/workstation prior to installing the updates on the host, remote desktop connections could fail.  When this occurs, you will receive an error that reads:

An authentication error has occurred.
The function requested is not supported
This could be due to CredSSP encryption oracle remediation

To resolve this issue the following steps should be taken:

1. Log into the remote server, run updates and reboot the server
2. If you cannot connect to the server, try another device that has not been updated such as a different PC, iPad, iPhone, etc.
3. If you have no way to access the server, please email for assistance
4. Once the server is updated, run updates on your local PC and reboot

These steps should solve the issue of failing remote desktop connections.
