As of today, January 14, 2020, Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows 7. This means that Microsoft will no longer provide the following for these operating systems:
- Free security updates on-premises
- Non-security updates
- Free support options
- Online technical content updates
Accordingly, beginning today, Duo will no longer support the installation of our products and integrations on these operating systems. Note that this end of support milestone does not mean that these Duo products or integrations will cease to function on the affected operating systems. However, our support team will only provide limited troubleshooting assistance for Duo software installed on these operating systems.
The following Duo products and integrations are affected by this end of support:
- Duo Authentication Proxy
- Duo Authentication for Windows Logon and RDP
- Duo for OWA
- Duo for AD FS 2.0
- Duo Authentication for RD Gateway
- Duo Authentication for RD Web
- Duo Authentication for Epic
After today, January 14, 2020, you may still be able to download these integrations on unsupported operating systems until new versions are released or old integration versions are deprecated. However, Duo will not provide updates for issues that affect only unsupported operating systems.
If you are utilizing Duo software or integrations on any of these operating systems, we encourage you to upgrade your software to operating systems that are actively receiving security updates as soon as possible. Microsoft has compiled a Windows Server Migration Guide that is available here (PDF).
If you have any comments or concerns about this, please let us know.
