  1. Provide option for Remove-DnsServerResourceRecord to not delete associate PTR record

    When deleting a DNS "A" or "AAAA" record, if the IP address is specified (necessary if more than one record exists for the name), the associated PTR record is also deleted.

    In some cases we want to delete the forward record to prevent client use but keep the PTR to flag that the address is in use.

    To make it consistent with Add-DnsServerResourceRecordA, it should not delete the PTR record unless a -DeletePtr parameter was given, but this would change default behaviour and so potentially break existing applications.

  3. Latin character not rendered properly

    I am having trouble seeing Latin characters when using NotePad and WordPad in Win Server 2012 R2. The character in question is a Latin Small Letter Insular T (Ꞇ). I am RDP'ing into a 2012 server and have the Ꞇ in my clipboard from my local machine. When I paste the character into Notepad, it comes up as a rectangle no matter what font I choose in Notepad. Seems like the character is not supported on the server.

  10. 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.

  18. Cut Copy and Paste

    Enabling Cut Copy and Paste between the Local host and the RD would be great. This is standard stuff for any VM ware.

  19. Update 10.2.1646.0 broke the app.

    I just received update 10.2.1646.0 from the store this morning and now every time I login to a remote desktop it freezes after about 30-60 seconds and has to be restarted. Needless to say, pretty unusable.
