  1. set code page for openssh server

    My win10 code page is Big5 as default
    I can use chcp 65001 to correct all chinese path if I connect via ssh to openssh server on win10.

    But if I connect via sftp command, sftp must use utf-8 but has no way to change code page on server.
    It makes my all path with Chinese character disappear in sftp ls output

    The only way I can do is go to settings -> language -> beta: use unicode utf-8 to fix this problem, but this will break many old program which doesn't support unicode.

    I suggest to provide a way…

  2. Enable configurable recursion in DNS Policy

    DNS Policy currently supports split-brain configurations only where the DNS server is authoritative for both zones (eg. respond with IP1 for internal users and IP2 for everyone else).

    It would be helpful if DNS Policy also supported split-brain scenarios where the resolver is NOT authoritative for one of the zones. This is useful in cases where the resolvers are separate from the primary DNS servers and the customer wants to specify a different IP address to a subset of clients, or when the primary DNS server is not managed internally but we want to 'overwrite' one or more IP addresses.

  3. dns root came

    Feature Request - DNS zone root apex alias capability in Windows Server DNS

    This would allow a customer to direct requests to the root of an DNS hosted zone (e.g. mydomain.com) to cdn/hosted services. This is required because a CNAME alias is not a supported record type for the apex root (@) record in a DNS zone.

    Azure supports this, so not sure why windows server team didn't implement this as well:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/dns/dns-alias

    AWS Route 53 DNS service gets around this using the concept of an alias which allows the root apex record of a DNS zone to point to…

  8. Create a better edit for Tasks Scheduler

    Create a better Task Scheduler GUI for Windows. You can't even rename tasks, drag drop, duplicate, migrate to another server, etc. I don't know how we can be in 2021 and have millions of admin who use Task Scheduler and have something can't do basic operations.

  10. Open services from Local server section

    Please implement opening services from Server Manager's Local Server -> Services listing. What I mean by "opening" is that you get to the same dialog as in opening Services application and double-clicking on a service.

  11. server 2019 cluster documentation

    We're two years+ since the release of Server 2019 and no documentation updates for Server 2019 Clustering. I feel as if you took my momeny and ran. There is no improvement in Cluster Management or the upgrade process can't be documented so we can keep our cluster on the latest supported operating system?

  18. Group Policy to set Scheduled Task to run as Interactive (S-1-5-4)

    Hi,
    the ability to set a Scheduled Task by Group Policy that targets Interactive (S-1-5-4) would be very useful.

    One is able to create the policy, but the policy fails to create the task

    [pid=0x620,tid=0x1170] There was a failure so the run once filter was rolled back. [ hr = 0x80041318 "The task XML contains a value which is incorrectly formatted or out of range." ]
    [pid=0x620,tid=0x1170] Error suppressed. [ hr = 0x80041318 "The task XML contains a value which is incorrectly formatted or out of range." ]

  19. 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

  20. 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…
