Windows Admin Center not working with LAPS

Hello,

I have LAPS set up successfully in my domain and use it often.

However, Windows Admin Center refuses to accept LAPS credentials to manage target nodes.

Sometimes WAC will accept LAPS credentials at first, then disconnect a few seconds later, other times it will return the error: "Your credentials didn't work - try again."

If I try to manually enter the LAPS credentials for the target node, I get "Your credentials didn't work - try again." I am 100% certain of the validity of the credentials, I can use them to administer the target node with no problems. WAC will just not accept them.

Any idea what's going on? I checked with another IT professional and they too have the same problem getting LAPS to work with WAC. Is LAPS integration broken?

Thank you.

    I'd check that you have the latest version. Also you can report this issue here in dedicated WAC forums on TechCommunity.
