  2. Make ISO hashes / checksums publicly accessible

    Currently volume licensing and most other MS portals don't provide (SHA, MD5 or any) filehashes.
    I learned that later this year MS is planning to update the VLSC portal to support this. That's good news.

    It would be a bonus to see the hashes on a true public part of the portals or otherwise on www.microsoft.com without any form of subscription.
    Reason is that only a limited number of persons have an account that can actually download ISO’s from VLSC. On the other hand, a lot of IT admins cannot download themselves but use these ISO’s and have to rely…

  3. Prevent NTFS Change Permissions from being applied when Creator Owner is removed

    When Creator Owner is removed from NTFS permissions, change permissions is still given when a person with Modify rights creates a new folder/file. If the Modify permission is the only permission granted, a person who creates a new folder/file should not be granted the Change Permissions when Creator Owner has been removed from the NTFS permissions.

  4. UserVoice Microsoft Windows Server has a Copyright 2015 (and it feels like it)

    This website from UserVoice shows a copyright of 2015 with a blurry low resolution Microsoft logo and it certaainly feels like 2015. This site and the Remote Desktop Services ( https://remotedesktop.uservoice.com/forums/266795-remote-desktop-services-for-enterprises ) feel as if Microsoft has left Windows Server as forgotten product line.

    I know Microsoft has been forced to change gears to reconnect with the standard consumer, but what about the Windows Server specialist. Is this how we are going to improve Windows Server deployments?

  5. The AD FS upgrade scenario from 2012 R2 to 2016 with a SQL database is missing 2019 info

    The following link contains the steps to upgrade an AD FS farm from 2012 R2 to 2016 when a SQL server is involved. It does not mention 2019.
    Is it possible to add it? The process is similar the only difference is the FBL.
    The link to the article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/deployment/upgrading-to-ad-fs-in-windows-server-sql

  6. Begin by properly documenting the basic keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-X. This also applies to WaaS. Then hire writers.

    Microsoft lawyers claim that Microsoft comes with "help" also known as "documentation." When one examines the claimed documentation one finds the usual finely crafted, artistic web pages that contain minimal information for the technical, non-employees who want a deep dive into how to operate Windows (various attempted releases). It is clear why Microsoft keeps this sort of thing close to the vest. Were it to become clear that there really isn't any documentation and no operating instructions then sales would stay exactly where they are. Nobody cares. Especially among the don't care group are top executives at Microsoft. And the…

  7. We need to possibility to decline updates for spesific computer groups just as well as approving updates for groups

    If you have several types of clients updated by a wsus server, the software vendor for some of the clints might have found some updates to cause problems for their software so that the specific updates should be possible to decline for specific computer groups while still being available for other groups. I really do not understand why there is no such possibility in wsus.. As it is now, "not approved updates" could mean two things. Either you specifically do not want to install the update or you have just not decided over the update yet, it really should be…

  11. Enable ACL tracking for resource access

    When accessing resources the user Token is presented and granted or denied access based on SIDs presented (Not taking DACL in to account). Tracking stale groups and ACLs is difficult in an environment, especially if there are multiple granting ACLs to a resource.

    It would be good if there could be an event or log that would show an audit of not just a principal getting access, but how they got access. E.g. SID of the user is present on the Resource and gained access by proxy of direct permissions... or by proxy of a SID of a group in…

  12. Allow for easy creation of base64 certificates with separate cert and key files

    I would like to use and continue to use the investment into AD CS. Currently using AD CS for non windows devices is painful due to the nature of requesting certs and getting them in formats useful for non windows devices. Maybe a modernized AD CS web enrollment site would help achieve this.

  13. restore old posts from blogs.technet.com

    blogs.technet.com had several valuable articles (ie. VMQ deep-dive,etc,etc) that were covering the lack of documentation in the official Product portal (docs.Microsoft.com / technet.microsoft.com) . since hte move to https://techcommunity.microsoft.com several of those articles are lost.

    Please restore them or transfer the contents to docs.microsoft.com

  15. Add (proper) kubernetes overlay networking CNIs which support networkpolicies

    Windows really needs to have a proper CNI to participate in hybrid Kubernetes clusters. Flannel just doesn't cut it. Please put effort in making Calico and/or Weave available.

  18. netsh trace and/or NetEventPacketCapture needs better packet filtering.

    "netsh trace" and/or NetEventPacketCapture lacks capable packet filtering. A lot of secure and change managed environments do not [easily] allow the installation of packet capture tools for collecting network data, like Wireshark (or the now defunct netmon and Message Analyzer).

    The two built-in packet capture tools in Windows, "netsh trace" and NetEventPacketCapture, can only filter packets by IP address, MAC, and protocol. This makes collecting a targeted trace, sometimes needed when collecting traces on sensitive networks, impossible.

    This is a request to add, at a minimum, the ability to filter packets by TCP port and UDP endpoint. Ideally, Windows inbox…

  20. OpenSSH on Windows should include ssh-copy-id

    The OpenSSH distribution that comes with Windows as an optional component should contain ssh-copy-id to make copying public keys to remote systems easier than the sequence outlined on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/openssh/openssh_keymanagement
