  2. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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

  8. Free Technical Support for Students

    It would be great if students could submit technical support requests for free, and if they are serious enough, get assistance with the issue for free.

    Backstory:
    Why Give Out Software to Students and Charge Us When We Need Assistance? - I have been using Microsoft products for everything school related, but now I have an issue with my server, you want to charge $500 for assistance with something critical and can't fix ourselves. I think I made a big mistake trying to learn Microsoft for my career, because I wouldn't be having the issue I have now if I…

  11. Storage migration service re-sync modified files during or after cut over

    I setup a Server 2019 VM and migrated our old 2008R2 file server, to this server with the Storage migration services through Windows Admin Center.

    It seems to work as designed and seems to be a great tool for admins.

    However on our current production file server, the migration takes 7 days. Too long to perform it out of hours, and too long to downtime the server. The result is outdated files on the destination side. I haven't found a way with SMS to resolve the issues with latest files being left behind on the source machine.

    I'm not sure…

  13. RDP client: configuring source port

    (Upvote please for the sake of flexibility and security)

    Please allow configuring the client source port for RDP in stead of the currently random port selection.
    In addition to changing RDP on the remote server. I want to limit connectivity except from specific ports at the client side to enforce security.

  17. bring back windowsupdate.log and windows update control panel feature to server 2016

    Bring back the windowsupdate.log and windows update control panel feature to Server 2016 and 2019. there is no logical reason to remove the log and why would you force the admin to export the log via powershell in some xml format, and decode it via symbols blablabla. Obfuscating the log files is an obvious attempt by msft to take over patch management from the end user.
