  1. Is Nested virtualization and VGA Passthrough concurrently supported inside hyper-v VMs?

    I have successfully passed through a NVIDIA Quadro P2000 inside a GEN 2 hyper-v on Windows Server 2019.
    When I try to enable nested virtualization support the VM wont boot.

  2. The new Windows 10 RemoteDesktop App messes up my keys within the session.

    On my host computer I only have one keyboard configured (US Intl) but on the remote server

    a) There is another keyboard layout (Dutch).
    b) Both layouts mess up the keys. The keyboard doesn't act as a US Intl. keyboard.

    When I use the mstsc client this problem does not occur

  3. This Features on Demand approach does not work in our environment

    This Features on Demand approach does not work in our environment. The Features on Demand is wanting to pull directly from Microsoft updates website, which is block corporation wide with the exception of our WSUS and SCCM environment. How can we make this work without allow 25K machines from pulling directly from Microsoft. This was the reason that we put WSUS in place to begin with.

  5. Bring back the bare metal install to Nano Server

    Hi Microsoft Team,

    How are you? I hope everything going well.

    Long time ago the microsoft decide to stop to Support/Deploy nano server on Bare metal.
    However, this position can be very usefully to work with Container, instead to create a physical cluster with Windows Server Core(Swarm of Kubernetes), we can create a cluster to run container and with it, save space, less update, less security issue e with more performance . This is not a simple solution I Know that. But it can be a game change.

  9. allow UDP tracert because Verizon has done something with their network and your current Tracert only shows 2 hops.

    Currently Tracert only shows 2 hops on Verizon Fios networks. There were many more before they changed their settings. UDP traceroute on Linux and Unix have no problem. Change your tracert to allow configuration for UDP rather than ICMP. It's hard to use current tracert to determine what's wrong when most of the hops don't show up.

  11. Please provide a justify center option for task bar icons. widescreen monitors mean you have to go way to the left to select taskbar icon

    All the Data Center monitors are 32" or 38" inches wide. So when your having to select icons from the task bar at bottom of screen you always having to arrow all the way over to the left. If there were a justify center option for task bar icons then you could always drop straight down and select on of the 12 or 15 icons your always using.

  13. distribute a text editor with Powershell

    I just can't believe that Powershell doesn't have a default text editor...
    I mean something as simple as vi at least! This is ridiculous...

  15. Acentuação

    Ao usar teclados físicos com o cliente rdp para Android, tenho problema com a acentuação. Por exemplo: ao digitar ~ + a obtenho "~a" e não "ã".

    Lembrando que fora da sessão rdp os teclados funcionam perfeitamente com o Android
