  2. Remove insecure protocols from IIS

    Default IIS HTTPS settings should get a good grade on https://www.ssllabs.com/
    If legacy operating system support is needed, that should have to be enabled on a per-site basis.

  4. Windows Defender should allow admins or SCCM to see all exclusions in place even the Microsoft built in exclusions.

    Currently you cannot see all exclusions in place in windows defender. Exclusions you put as well as the built in exclusions. There should be a way to see one complete list of exclusions. I should not have to travel to a MSFT website to see what they added. One effective policy would be nice.

  7. App Remote Desktop

    It would be very useful if an import/export was available to be able to configure multiple stations.

  10. Smartcard redirection on iPad Pro (usb) RD Client for iOS

    As the new iPad supports usb and a lot of users travel Witti pad I order to log in their servers at work via terminal sessions for e.g. banking software etc, they are depending on a smartcard reader. The iOS client does not support redirection so far. Hopefully this will be a feature soon.

  13. Auto approve option for Unapproved, Needed Updates rule for WSUS

    I feel there should be an option in WSUS that allows you to create a rule that automatically approves unapproved, needed updates. As it stands, a lot of products can be installed on many machines on a network. Selecting all products and categories in WSUS consumes a LOT of disk space when automatic approval is enabled. By being able to create a rule that automatically approves unapproved, needed updates, we will be able to keep disk consumption to a minimum, ensure all Microsoft products on the network are patched appropriately, help prevent WSUS database problems when trying to perform cleanups…

  14. Where do Windows Server 2019 Evaluation users get FOD ISO Image?

    The following document says "The Server FOD ISO image file is available on the Microsoft Evaluation Center or on the Visual Studio portal for subscribers."

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/understand/windows-admin-center

    FDO iso image was available from the Evaluation Center in early October 2018, but it is not found on the download site of the Windows Server 2019 evaluation re-released in January 2019. Therefore, it is not possible to get FOD iso image unless it is a Visual Studio subscribers or VL users ?

  15. RSAT for Mac

    I currently use a Windows 10 VM with Remote Server Administration Tools to manage our servers (about 3 years running now). Would be super sweet if you put together a version that runs natively on Mac. Super sweet.

  17. Windows Admin Center add feature for Microsoft Remote Assistance for desktop

    RDP is already a feature. If you were looking to assist users that had an active session on a machine and could implement the Offer Remote Assistance from inside the WAC with a button push, it'd make life easier.

  19. Feature Request: server manager RDP control, are you sure before Sign out

    Hi there in Redmond,

    the (not so much) new Server-Manager is quite an improvement for the daily work. Especially the feature to simple connect to some users RDP-Session and help him or her out with something is very nice...

    But if you see the context menu, that what you get right clicking to ones users session, you see the following four items: disconnect, send message shadow and log out. Not to much often but still once a month or so it can happen that you click the mouse and without your intention your cursor glitched down a few pixels and…
