  1. Software Inventory Logging Aggregator (SILA) Install Localization Bug

    SILA complements the built-in SIL but it seems the MSI (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49046) though having a German download and UI is not working properly on German (and maybe other localized) servers.

    The setup breaks with an error regarding "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" which is localized to "NT-AUTORITÄT\SYSTEM" on German servers.

    Inspecting the MSI also shows one SQL script having "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" in hardcoded form.

  3. Make Storage Replica available for Standard Edition

    Storage Replica is a really useful feature, and Windows Admins and their companies would benefit if it's available in Standard Edition as well. The mean time to restore service could be improved massively, and Microsoft would be a big part in it.
    Storage Replica is not a Hosting Provider only feature!

  5. Allow KMS to Store Computer Name and Last Activation Date in WID / SSEE

    Inventory is always a challenge and KMS is a great opportunity to help. Add an option to allow KMS to store computer name and last activation date in WID / SSEE Windows Integrated Database. Update slmgr.vbs to add an option to export a text file from the database. If the KMS protocol transmits other information such as Windows OS version or Microsoft Office version, also store this in the database.

    Thanks

    Steven
