  1. Add GUI management option for GPU DDA in Hyper-V Manager

    Hyper-V Manager does not have a GUI way to add DDA GPUs or manage them. This is really annoying and unnecessary

  4. Suggestion: Improve Windows Server update process and reduce down times

    Make Windows Server to be able to check, download, install updates while the server is running.

    like Android project Mainline.

    so at first there will be 2 OS drives instead of 1, they'll be clones of each other. when an updates pops up, the OS will download and install it on the other drive that is not used to run the OS. the updates can be installed and completely finished on that drive. the next time a system admin restarts the server, OS will boot up from the other updated drive without ANY downtime for installing or finishing updates. once…

  5. [DCR Case-15787650] Add a Group policy or CSP policy which allows/blocks the Windows driver updates over metered networks

    We have several users under this scenario where they were working in a remote location with no wifi access and they connect through 4G, then a driver download for the Mobile broadband device kicks in and as it normally happens with network related device driver updates, once Windows starts the process of upgrading it, it will briefly disconnect the device, leaving the user with no connectivity.

    Currently, we only have an option to allow/block the entire Windows Updates on metered networks from Windows perspective
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/client-management/mdm/policy-csp-update#update-allowautowindowsupdatedownloadovermeterednetwork

    It would be great if we can have a granular setting which lets us decide…

  6. DNS policies for reverse-lookup zones

    Please implement support to configure DNS policies for reverse-lookup zones.
    We need a way to prevent sensitive private PTR records from being accessible on the internet in Split-Brain DNS configurations.

    Hello dear support service
    Using the backup and recovery option in this application will clear the previous information.
    For example, in the first system, I have a group of systems
    After backing up and recovering in the new system, it will be removed.
    It is possible to replace them together.

  12. AGPM

    Continue support and updates for Advanced Group Policy Management. Our company uses AGPM extensively and would like to see future enhancements and support continued. If there is a replacement Microsoft product, it doesn't seem to be found.

  14. VPN Always On LockDown

    Hello,

    We would like to use LockDown mode on our VPN Always On Device tunnel clients in order to restrict all flows only in the VPN tunnel (not local traffic). Can you tell me if this "Lockdown" feature is supported in a high security context?
    Currently, only LockDown mode limits all flows in the VPN tunnel and perfectly meets our needs. In Forcetunnel mode, local traffic is allowed. Of course we don't just want to allow local traffic.
    For information, Always On Device tunnel is installed on all of our Windows 10 Enterprise 1909 workstations.
    Thank you in advance for…

  15. Windowed Solution

    It would be very nice if the Remote Apps opened a new instance of the app in a separate window. This would allow native app switching gestures along with Windowed Display on Chromebooks.

  19. Fix Windows Server Updates

    Today's Windows Updates are horrible and very unreliable and Windows Updates are one of the most riskiest operations. Microsoft should take the inspiration from Linux environment as Linux implementation of OS updates is informative, transparent to administrators, it's very nice to work with and administrators have all relevant info in case of any issue or update management. And Linux updates are very reliable.

    But in case of Windows Server updates they are a nightmare. Using sconfig provides only very basic information, when updates are downloaded with no information is provided about progress, about downloading process, details about downloaded packages etc.…
