  2. Add cross-server service dependencies

    If I have an application that needs SQL to be running on another server, it would be great to be able to add a dependency in my services control panel that would prevent that service from being started until it saw SQL running on another server, with an optional startup delay afterward.

    In addition to this, in general, a "startup delay" you can specify in seconds for services would be beneficial. We've had some race conditions in our environment which have meant some services have failed to start due to network adapter/netlogon availabilty, and the options to correct this are…

  5. Access to Windows10 UAP APIs

    The promise of the new Windows10 Universal Apps is that they will run anywhere. That should include the server and Azure. I'd like to write my core libraries so that the code can be used on phones, tablets, PCs, Consoles and in the cloud.

    I especially want access to the MediaComposition and Win2D libraries for rendering my animations to video which I can then send to Azure Media Services for transcoding.

  6. Make Branch Cache easier to setup and verify its working.

    Make this easier!
    To prehash content and preload the content on hosted cache servers
    Log on to the file or Web server that contains the data that you wish to preload, and identify the folders and files that you wish to load on one or more remote hosted cache servers.

    Run Windows PowerShell as an Administrator. For each folder and file, run either the Publish-BCFileContent command or the Publish-BCWebContent command, depending on the type of content server, to trigger hash generation and to add data to a data package.

    After all the data has been added to the data package,…

  7. passwords accept hash, instead of Base64

    from autounattend.xml to powershell, user accounts are managed by base64encoded strings. This is ... frankly ... terrible, as it's not even technically encrypted. Want to see that admin password default in the autounattend.xml file? simply run:

    $nextstep = [System.Convert]::FromBase64String("<put it here>")
    $finalstep = [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetString($nextstep)

    Please allow hashing/salting to be used for password conifguration, be it from an unattend.xml file or as an option when creating new accounts to allow at least modest protection when passing credentials.

  8. How to modify the default configuration of RDP?

    In default configuration, security was set to 'Warn me if authentication fails'. I want to set 'Always connect, even if authentication fails' as default. I found Default.rdp in RDC Connections folder but can not find 'security' setting.
