  1. Kerberos using AES still not working where it should

    Establish a two-way forest trust.

    Try to establish Remote Desktop Connection from a computer in one forest to a computer in another forest, with an account that is a member of “Protected Users” security group. The connection will fail if the computer (from where you’re trying to establish RDP connection) does not have “RC4HMACMD5” kerberos encryption type enabled (i.e. it only has “AES256HMACSHA1” enabled).

    On the other hand, if the user that is trying to establish Remote Desktop Connection is using an account that is NOT a member of “Protected Users” security group, and only AES…

  2. "add forest" in group policy management does not work unless RC4 is enabled

    We have two-way forest trust established and would like to manage group policy for both forests from one server.

    On a member server where Group Policy Management console is installed, these encryption types are enabled in “Network security: Configure encryption types allowed for Kerberos“:
    AES256HMACSHA1
    Future encryption types

    When I try to add another forest to Group Policy Management console (open “Group Policy Management” console, right click on “Group Policy Management”, click on “Add forest…”, enter domain name and then click “OK”), a message “Access is denied.” pops up.

    If I enable “RC4HMACMD5” on the server…

  5. DNS policies for reverse-lookup zones

    Please implement support to configure DNS policies for reverse-lookup zones.
    We need a way to prevent sensitive private PTR records from being accessible on the internet in Split-Brain DNS configurations.

  6. if you want insiders to test make the Desktop version more readily available

    WAC is coming along however it just doesn't offer the same functionality as other admin utilities. Please include the LTS ISO in the downloads for insiders so we can have 1 with a gui and perhaps a couple running core. This will make it much easier to deploy and test.

  7. Add Services.msc to the Right-Click Start Menu (WinKey+x menu)

    Add Services to the Windows Server WinX menu (right click of start menu / the menu that appears when you press WinKey+x).

    As an administrator, one of the first things I do after connecting to a server is open services.msc. The fastest way to do it has always been click Start, type "services.msc" press enter.

    What I would prefer to be able to do is right-click start, choose "Services" but inexplicably, that option that admins use EVERY DAY is simply not in the list when obscure things that we rarely use low Power Options are in the list. Please add…

  9. distribute a text editor with Powershell

    I just can't believe that Powershell doesn't have a default text editor...
    I mean something as simple as vi at least! This is ridiculous...

  11. You need to add better documentation for implementation for AOVPN

    I am finding it very difficult to implement and configure AOVPN because of the lack of detailed documentation that is current and offers variations on deployment.

  17. ADFS RelayingPartyTrustsGroup Enhancements

    When implementing multiple RelayingPartyTrustsGroup of substantial sizes, we are running into some point points with the Powershell interface.

    Add-AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup
    - Need a flag to manually specify the name

    Remove-AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup
    - Need an option to specify the name

    Set-AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup
    - Command doesn't existing but looking for something similar to the existing Set-AdfsRelyingPartyTrust command modify parameters found in get-AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup

    Get-AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup
    - is painfully slow currently due to the full enumeration of the RelayingPartyTrusts identifier, should limit results a handful of RPT's to increase performance.
    - add an option to limit the number of RPT's enumerated with the query 1/10/20/100/unlimited/ect

  18. Bring back the "net statistics server" command to Windows Server 2019.

    In previous versions of Windows Server the command "net statistics server" returned useful server-related information (e.g. # sessions, # files accessed etc.). In Windows Server 2019 (at least with desktop experience) this command fails and indicates that "net statistics workstation" must be used. This command is normally used on workstations and returns a different set of information.

  20. switch user in task manager without password in server 2019

    Ok in server 2012, I can switch to a logged user in task manager without password if it's the same user.
    But in server 2019, this feature disappeared, I have to type a very long password everytime when I want to change to another session under the same user, which is very annoying.
