  2. WSUS should have much better reporting functionality

    In the WSUS console, I should be able to search a KB, then get back a list of not only the overall compliance, but get lists of servers that do and don't have the patches installed, without having to dig deep into PowerShell or .NET libraries. I also think the same should be possible for the inverse, where you query a computer and should get back a list of patches WSUS knows is installed/not installed. You can currently sort of do this all via hokey scripts and Excel Vlookup magic, but it would be so much nicer if it was…

  4. Please add support for Get, Add, Replace, Delete item for OMA-URI value to Account CSP

    Please add support for OMA-URI values for https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/client-management/mdm/accounts-csp

    Currently it only supports Add and not even GET. That creates some false positive on the Intune MDM side that shows the profile failed but the OMA-URI values are written but because of the GET function is not supported, it showing as failed.

    please help to add Get, Add, Replace and Delete function for these OMA-URI

  5. ConfigStoreRootPath & SharedStoragePath Path Change

    Both the ConfigStoreRootPath and SharedStoragePath locations under a hyper-v cluster cannot currently be amended after they are initially set so if you move the cluster storage to another storage array with different volume names you either have to:
    1.) recreate the whole cluster to change locations of these values.
    2.) rename the volumes to the old paths and then change all corresponding virtual machine paths or
    3.) Create a small volume with the same name and path as already set for both ConfigStoreRootPath & SharedStoragePath.

    It seems completely bizarre that such a well documented limitation has not be addressed by…

  6. openssh for windows support socket multiplex (controlMaster option)

    For a server that enters a dynamic password to log in, it is really annoying to enter a password every time. It is important to support multiplex sockets like linux ssh.

  8. remote desktop port

    Remote Desktop > Advanced Settings is extremely user-unfriendly for changing the RDP port.

    I correctly shows my current port number, and it has a link for changing the port number. It redirects to a very technical link [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/change-listening-port] that surely scares a lot of people into doing that.

    There should be an input box for setting the new port number, and after changing that it should restart the service without needing to restart the operating system.

  9. Enable KDC Proxy Service outside of RD Gateway

    Currently to be able to use the KDC proxy you need to enable the RD Gateway, but the use of KDC Proxy is needed outside of RD Applications. Please add the option to enable the KDC Proxy as a stand alone feature.

  12. The current auditing of LAPS password access events are not fine-grained

    The current auditing of LAPS password access events are not fine-grained and it becomes very difficult for an administrator to separate LAPS events with other population of 4662 which are huge in number. May be Microsoft can distinguish the LAPS password access event.

  13. Start menu performance

    Clicking on the start menu on a server should do far less than on Windows 10. I am always finding delays with the start menu showing when clicking on it on a server and a long wait for the search to start when I start typing. I know part of this is related to disk resources -- I need to make some improvements there on the Host machine as the VMS are sharing disk resources. However, I feel like the functionality behind the start menu on server 2016 could be reduced down to what it used be like on 2008…

  14. fix the pop-up in Windows Admin Center for storage migration

    When selecting Storage Migration Service, a pop-up will always come up, no matter if you select the option to never show again. Also, the feedback link in there takes you nowhere.
    Now, we all know Microsoft tries to over achieve, but telling me the job is done over 100%... :)

  16. Stop installing Windows with the Exemption already made in the Firewall?

    Its not an idea its a fact. Its makes the OS more prone to attacks. Why would there be exemptions for wireless setups. I don't have a wireless device. I don't want to access my computer remotely. I makes it more simple for someone to though. I don't use AllJoyn Router. Windows 10 is garbage. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. Dont see much that got any better than Windows 7. As a matter of fact yall made it more complicated and even more annoying? Why? It was already annoying as . Most just throw their computer in

  17. Please include Microsoft office apps on WVD or Remote desktop so we could effectively do our tasks as scrubbers.

    When we open remove desktop, there are three applications available for us to use. We are using rave and we are extracting it from there to excel. Since we are opening rave using IE from WVD, the copy paste feature isn't working so we can't copy the content from rave and paste it to an application outside wvd which is the excel. If you could add excel on wvd, it would be easy for us to do our task instead of manually typing the contents we are extracting from rave.

  20. android

    The URI scheme for connecting to the Remote Descktop application on Android works. However, If you close the connection it is preferred to go to the previous activity on android. In the RD client application you return to the home activity. This is not wanted

    An enhancement of passing through username/password for gateway in the URI would be nice as well.
