  2. Windows server images should not install deskop services such as Maps, One sync

    Windows server should have the option to NOT install desktop services which are very unlikely to be used in a corporate environment these include Maps, Onsync, and XBox. Not only do they appear to be unnecessary they cause false positives with system monitoring software.

  4. Prevent Update nag firing when you clink in to the update screen

    When updates are pending on our Server 2016 estate handled by WSUS we should get a prompt to advise that updates are pending. This is all fair and well if you aren't particularly going in to do the updates.

    If you are straight on the box and going into updates as soon as you click Update and security the update nag fires taking over the screen only to have the option to show the updates that are locked in the background that I already navigated to. Clearly this is not the expected behaviour and hopefully is just the OS going…

  5. Update Essentials 2012 R2 Dashboard to be compatible with current .NET releases

    If any .NET version after 4.5.2 is installed, some dashboard functionality fails (can't remove computer, can't ignore alert) and the dashboard crashes randomly. Removing and blocking .NET 4.6.1, 4.7, and 4.7.1 works around the issue, but that means the server is limited to the 4-year-old .NET 4.5.2. This article has more details:

  7. RDP client: configuring source port

    (Upvote please for the sake of flexibility and security)

    Please allow configuring the client source port for RDP in stead of the currently random port selection.
    In addition to changing RDP on the remote server. I want to limit connectivity except from specific ports at the client side to enforce security.

  8. Hyper-V Server 2019 (17763.1) did not detect CU for Windows

    Windows Update (sconfig 6) on Hyper-V Server 2019 does not detect any cumulative updates for Windows. It detect only cumulative updates for .NET Framework and Windows Defender Updates. I can manually install Cumulative Updates for Windows Server 2019 (downloaded from Microsoft Update Catalog) to Hyper-V Server 2019.

    I know that I should not use the first ISO media (17763.1) I downloaded in early October. I just reported. I hope the early restart of ISO media offering.

  9. Windows Hyper-V Server Core 2019 RDP not listening on port 3389 after enabled.

    Even after the TermService service is enabled, the system is still not listening to port 3389. Settings double-checked to be enabled in the CLI enabler, via regedit, and running processes checked to be running, and ports checked with netstat.

    Still not working.

  10. Get-Item through Invoke-Command in Windows Server 2019 returns local result

    Invoking Get-Item 'HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\' locally will Return amongst others fDenyTSConnections When invoking the same command wrapped in an Invoke-Command the local server values were returned. When running the Get-Item cmdlet in locally or in a PSSession the right result is returned.

  11. Make Features on Demand work inside the Server Core Container

    Because there's no "product feedback" at <https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/features-on-demand-v2--capabilities>, I'll post here. I'm the author of a popular Active Server Pages framework, ASP Xtreme Evolution (AXE), and we have a hack to leverage node.js npm packages to work inside our environment <https://github.com/nagaozen/evolved-npm2asp-bundler>.

    I evaluated the Windows Server 2019 DE and the ServerCore (with FoD) on a virtual machine and they both support this trick. But we are trying to move into a container strategy and installing FoD on the <mcr.microsoft.com/windows/servercore:ltsc2019> seems impossible for the reasons already explained in this issue <https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/windows-insider/issues/56>.

  13. Upgrade a server running core to the next version. Example 1709 to 1803

    Please post the methods to upgrade Short Term Service Branch Servers. If we are going to be living with these servers for less then 18 months we need to understand the methods for upgrades.

  14. mprddm.dll

    The pppoe in rras is broken, there are multiple reports on this, with 'patched' Windows server DLLs floating around. This is unacceptable, and these issues have even persisted from 2012 to the current 2019.
    Please advise.

  15. Allow PowerShell scripts to run directly in Scheduled Tasks

    Please allow to use PowerShell scripts directly within Scheduled Tasks.

    An update should offer this functionality for all current supported server versions.

  17. Robocopy - Needs Creation Date Functionality

    Posted to Bug as all other robocopy posts have been placed here.

    It is fairly common for organisations to have a temporary area accessible by all staff to allow a common area to access files. For these type of temporary areas, some sort of scheduled cleaning regime needs to be in place so that files older than a certain number of days are automatically removed.

    A common cleaning approach is to move files past a nominated age to a staging folder and then empty the staging folder. Unfortunately robocopy's MINAGE switch operates on Modified Date that makes it non-functional for…

  18. Windows Defender should allow admins or SCCM to see all exclusions in place even the Microsoft built in exclusions.

    Currently you cannot see all exclusions in place in windows defender. Exclusions you put as well as the built in exclusions. There should be a way to see one complete list of exclusions. I should not have to travel to a MSFT website to see what they added. One effective policy would be nice.
