  1. SDN Hyper-V Network Virtualization with manually assign IP

    SDN in Window Server 2016 onward is a very great solution. Managing VM networking from the Network Controller and enable isolation of VM Network.

    One feature that i find missing with this is a ability to assign static IP manually to the VM in an isolated VM Network managed by Network Controller.This would enable Domain Controller to be setup in this Isolated VM Network. Also VM what are not Windows base like Linux or specific distribution that serve as networking work (SSL Web Reverse Proxy).

  4. Allow for easy creation of base64 certificates with separate cert and key files

    I would like to use and continue to use the investment into AD CS. Currently using AD CS for non windows devices is painful due to the nature of requesting certs and getting them in formats useful for non windows devices. Maybe a modernized AD CS web enrollment site would help achieve this.

  8. Desktop Experience Simulation Remotely

    Why the command line? Why there is no client software that remotely connects to server core and simulates the desktop experience based on server core for easy management? Therefore, on the client-side, we will see Windows Server desktop but commands transfer as commands line.

  9. ADFS - Force authentication method per relying party on IDP-side

    related to ADFS 2016:

    it would be great if we can force a specific authentication method at ADFS for a relying party. in general forms and certificate authtentication is possible for our users, but for specific apps only certificate should be possible for security reasons. adding certificate as MFA is not a good solution from the users point of view because they will be forced to enter first their credentials before they have to use a certificate (which is more secure than forms and because of this sufficient).

  11. Fix Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Email Notifications support for SSL / STARTTLS

    Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is able to send email notifications via an SMTP using Options / E-Mail Notifications.

    However at present it does not support STARTTLS or SSL - which means it is impossible to use directly with Office 365 or Gmail, it sends any authentication details in plain text, and the emails themselves are sent unencrypted. It's 2019 - can we get basic security support built into this product, please?

  16. robocopy /mt causes incorrect summary for copied and skipped files

    Issue relating to robocopy is detailed here:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/cd9b83c1-bd01-41ee-8f56-ea9db4e598bb/robocopy-with-mt-switch-seems-to-show-different-summary-info-why?forum=winserverfiles&prof=required

    When using the /MT to a directory that already exists the files are not skipped. This is the opposite behavior to what happens without the /MT flag. This issue is picked up reviewing the summary.

  19. Add (proper) kubernetes overlay networking CNIs which support networkpolicies

    Windows really needs to have a proper CNI to participate in hybrid Kubernetes clusters. Flannel just doesn't cut it. Please put effort in making Calico and/or Weave available.
