  4. 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.

  5. Maintain Office 365 support for Server 2012 R2 or supply workaround

    I believe Office 365 should maintain support for Server 2012 R2 until that operating system reaches its end of life, which isn't for another few years in 2023.

    Organizations like mine have a dependence on Server 2012 R2 due to certain application needs, interoperability, support and other requirements. In our case, an entire virtual desktop shared environment which supports over 100 users relies on Server 2012 R2 which also runs Office 365 and has for a number of years with no issue.

    Microsoft has decided to drop support for Office 365 on Server 2012 R2 this January, which is unacceptable;…

  8. RSAT on Windows 10 2004

    We have search the Web and cannot install RSAT on this OS. nothing works. even after tearing holes in our security , we have fiddled and broken WSUS. and still we cannot get the RSAT tools installed.
    We have the stand alone installer, we have tried the option feature approach. It simply will not install because we have a WSUS server. The end game over thats all folk, go back Windows 10 1809 so that you can work.

  9. Please add Windows Server 2019

    Microsoft Online Documentation:

    Please add Windows Server 2019 support as the year 2020 is almost over. Poor support for new servers with Microsoft lately.

    We read documentations and see very little to NO mention of Server 2019. You are lucky to even see Server 2016 in most cases and even then 2016 solutions have BETA at best.

    What is going on here? Are we in BETA with Server 2019? If so, it should be treated that way an not waste administrators time fighting simple issues like working with NPS and VPN.

  13. Enable file indexing / Windows Search service feature for server core installations

    We would love to see file indexing / Windows Search service feature enabled for server core installations.

    Especially for lean and dumb fileservers in a network there's no need for a UI server. But without UI there's no Windows Search. Without Windows search, there's no fast client initiated search.

    That's a mess.

    AND: When there's no fast searching available anyway, why spending money for Windows server core licenses instead of using linux samba fileservers for free?

  14. WSUS 10.0/6.3 cannot import update metadata through Microsoft Update Catalog

    Currently I tested WSUS 10.0 (Server 2019) and WSUS 6.3 (Server 2012R2). Both versions of WSUS cannot import updates through the built-in import function. The error code is 80131509. Is this feature currently disabled?

  15. RDSH role breaks Windows Search

    Hello,

    on a fresh installed and fully patched Windows Server 2019 Std if I enable RDSH role the Windows Search stops working.

    Windows Search service looks good and eventlog shows no errors but Indexing Options shows no locations enabled for indexing and I am unable to add them

    Things I have already tried

    1 - Windows Search service restart

    2 - Server restart

    3 - Rebuild Index

    4 - Enable Windows Search feature

    5 - DISM ad SFC

    6 - Windows Troubleshoot - shows incorrect permission on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data folder but is unable to fix them. If I manually fix those…

  16. Make the Windows Home Server/Server Essentials 2012/2016 Client Backup Service Available or Open Source

    Given that the Server Essentials Feature has now been deprecated and is only available safely until Server 2016 goes out of support, why not make at least the Client Backup Service from the Server Essentials Feature available as an additional cost addon (to make it viable to support) OR make it Open Source so that at least this important feature of WSE can continue. Those alternatives available with the deduplication capabilities included (such as those from Acronis) are simply too costly for home and SOHO users!

  19. Hostable Core is useless

    Work Folders feature is completly useless as it is running use IIS Core, and it cannot be managed using normal IIS tools and it is incompatible with any other web software on the server.

  20. Add a method of launching the RDP client from a browser

    Like this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/remote-desktop-uri

    But
    - It works
    - It works from a browser (chrome, edge, firefox)

    Basically, enter a URL in some specified format, and it'll launch the RDP client, and maybe even auto-connect to the specified server (a preference maybe?).
