  1. Add build number to WSUS

    WSUS does not show the build number of the OS. If you add "Version" to the overview, the version of "Windows Update Engine" shows up. Because 1903, 1909, 2004 and 20H2 use the same Windows Update Engine, the number stays the same.

    We want to see the build number of the OS versions! And not the Windows Update Engine version!

    20H2 should show up as 19042.572 and not as 19041.546!

  3. RRAS L2TP broken on Big Sur and iOS 14

    support [dot] apple [dot] com/en-us/HT211840

    Connecting to RRAS L2TP VPN on Macs is broken by the most recent Apple updates. Seems we need to be able to "truncate the output of the SHA-256 hash to 128 bits" in RRAS but are currently unable to do so

  4. meilleur logiciel de facture d'or!

    Avoir un bon logiciel pour créer et mixer de la musique n'est pas aussi cher que certains le pensent. Il existe un logiciel pour exploiter la créativité musicale avec de nombreux outils et ressources et Virtual DJ en est un, qui comprend également des fonctionnalités d'édition vidéo pour les videoDJ.

  7. ADFS Group per RPT release override

    When attempting to utilize AdfsRelyingPartyTrustsGroup functionality we can do a very broad generic release but in some cases (5-10 RPT's in a group of thousands) we would like to be able to override the Claims Issuance and Access Control policies.

    In a federation we may generically release surname, givenname, email but for a few we may also need to release employeeid, supervisor, or some custom language business integration data.

    In a federation we may want to allow all users access to most RPT's but some more sensitive RPT's we are looking to restrict it to a few AD groups with…

  8. Add support for RADSEC (RFC 6614) in NPS

    This RFC addresses several reliability and security limitations for RADIUS. Support and requirement for RADIUS over TCP and for using certificate trust to replace RADIUS secrets are becoming mainstream and therefore necessary use cases to support.

  11. Not working with Big Sur

    Microsoft RDP is not working with the new Mac OS update (Big Sur), it would be great if that is made compatible with Big Sur.

  12. Abolish the non-conforming administrators_authorized_keys ssh file

    Knock it off and just do it right this time. No one needs or wants this genuinely Microsoft bastardization. It's beyond idiotic to whisk these keys away into programdata - it's slightly insane. Just figure it out and quit it with the terrible hacks.

  13. PXEBoot of .iso could be improved

    WDSLinux and other similar efforts try to mannualy enable WDS to do a better experience with PXE boots of many, many boot images currently being used. As we move to containers and other bare metal runtimes for cloud (Azure Stack HCI, etc...) it is becoming very important to support arbitrary boot agents for any remotetly shared .iso files.
    WIM is an amazing dedup idea, but most software nowadays is more "self-contained" and the simplicity to manage .ISO images on a catalog should be much better than merging WIM/DISM files. WIM should be an advanced technique (for compression/speed), not the easy…

  15. Use Windows 7 "Help and Support" configuration in Windows 10, or give the option to Use.

    As a "Newbie" like myself and hungry for learning I have tried both Windows 10 and Windows 7 Help and Support and have found Windows 7 more use full,informative and the ease of problem solving is unmatchable.

  17. Storage Migration Service (SMS) - Individual folders Inventory

    Can we have the option to select a specific folder(s) while adding source device for the Inventory scan in SMS.

    Will helps to identify folders specific errors in details rather than from PartiallySucceeded folders for device level scan at source.

  18. Prioritize proficiency of computation within and throughout kernel limits

    Windows is primarily utilized with Office and associated developer software to deal with ("financial") data sheets based on our clients. Optimizing for high-performance data processing via kernel retrofit programming would be quite useful. Thank you.

  19. Repair Task Scheduler on Server 2019

    I have been fighting task scheduler for a while and have determined that there is most definitely an issue with task scheduler

    we have a batch file that calls an executable.
    We can run that batch file from the file explorer and we can watch with a ui and see all the different actions being taken, typically about 120 lines of actions. and this typically takes about a minute and a half to run.

    When we put that same batch file in task scheduler and run it on maybe a reocurrance of every 10 minutes, task scheduler starts the task,…

  20. Support AMD FirePro™S-Series on Hyper-V with SR-IOV allowing DDA to VMs

    AMD FirePro S Series graphics card are server-class GPUs.
    They also support SR-IOV, so one physical AMD FirePro S7150 GPU can appear to be multiple GPUs to the hypervisor. You should then be able to assign a GPU using Discrete Device Assignment (DDA) to a VM, then within the VM treat it as a full GPU.
    It seems that all the building blocks are in place;
