Challenge : Outlook would connect to one MS365 mailbox but then started constantly flashing for authentication for the disconnected Hotmail mailbox, but the credentials window disappears before being able to click on the box to enter a password.
Cause : Unknown ? Clash of accounts? Glitch in the Matrix?
Solution : More of a workaround solution.

This feature looks to identify activity and assign a risk level. “Risk detection and remediation”
All features look to be available in Azure AD Premium P2 and restricted number of features in Azure Premium P1 and Basic/Free.
Key differences are the notifications options only in Azure AD Premium P2.
There are three default polices
- User Risk
- Sign-In Risk
Example of the Identity Protection Policies
Reference How To Guides :
- How To: Configure the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication registration policy
- How To: Configure and enable risk policies
- How To : Identity protection configure notifications
I recently tried to enable auto shutdown on a virtual machine. I wanted to receive a notification before auto-shutdown. But the option was greyed out.
It would appear if send notification is set to yes, then the Save option is greyed out. Set Notification to No and you can save the settings > Set the time and Save.
Is it a feature or a bug, this was my work around.. After you have enabled and set a time. Now edit again and set notifications, add and email address and Save is available.

I recently got the chance to attend an analyst briefing held by VMware senior executives, where I learned a lot about the company’s overall strategy and progress. This is a big time for VMware, and the tech industry in general, with more people working remotely than ever before in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Unprecedented strain has been put on networks. Certain technology trends, such as the use of VDI and unified communications platforms, are accelerating. As a provider of cloud computing and virtualization software and services, I believe VMware’s portfolio and expertise puts it in a unique position to ensure enterprises’ business continuity. Paramount to this continuity is cybersecurity, as cybercriminals all over are…Read More
