How can I fix error code 0x80310000 for windows 10 mobile update?

I am using an Microsoft Lumia 830 for work. Every time I try to get the “Microsoft Update for Windows Phone-Windows 10 Mobile 10.0.14393.1066, the phone downloads the update, but cannot install it.

I received error code 0x80310000.

How to fix this error (0x80310000):

Turn off your device encryption if you have it turned on. It helped for me, make sure you reboot your device after deactivating device encryption.

It seems that when the update is going to be installed (gears screen/bootloader) it can’t read encrypted data.

QoS troubleshooting with Wireshark

During my work i have a lot of VoIP traffic related queries/questions. I’m using this configuration to check if packets are being tagged with the right DSCP values.

Add DSCP column to your Wireshark Client

1. Right click on one of the existing columns.
2. Click on column preferences
3. Click Add down the bottom
4. Click on the “New Column” Label and change it to “DSCP” then hit enter once.
5. With the new entry highlighted, change the Field Type to Custom (in the dropdown box)
6. In field name, copy and paste in ip.dsfield.dscp
7. Click Apply/Ok

You can drag the column back to the left side of the Info column and you now have a simple view of the tag for any packet.

Filter

You can also set a filter to capture all packets with DSCP value 46

ip.dsfield.dscp == 46

RDCMan to Hyper-V console

Remote Desktop Connection Manager is a essential tool if you run a lot of virtual machines or need to connect to a lot of customers as i do.  One of the new features in version 2.7 allows the ability to connect directly to virtual machines (called virtual machine connect-to-console support).  Configuring a connection for this new feature is rather easy once you have the ID of the virtual machine.  The following PowerShell command should do the trick:

get-vm | Select Name,ID

Once you have this information, enter it on the Server Settings tab like in the following screen shot, i’ve used the Win10 VM:

Once you have this set up, you should be almost set to go…We also need to set some registry settings otherwise you will be facing this error:

The reason for the error appears to be that the Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) policy on the Hyper-V host is not enabled to authenticate user credentials from a remote location.

Open Powershell as Administrator and paste the following:
