  1. 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>.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. Remove insecure protocols from IIS

    Default IIS HTTPS settings should get a good grade on https://www.ssllabs.com/
    If legacy operating system support is needed, that should have to be enabled on a per-site basis.

  18. bring back windowsupdate.log and windows update control panel feature to server 2016

    Bring back the windowsupdate.log and windows update control panel feature to Server 2016 and 2019. there is no logical reason to remove the log and why would you force the admin to export the log via powershell in some xml format, and decode it via symbols blablabla. Obfuscating the log files is an obvious attempt by msft to take over patch management from the end user.

  19. Update registry value when w32tm /config type=ntp and ntpserver=ntp.org

    After w32tm /config on PDCe, the registry still contains original domain values.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters
    ...
    NtpServer REG_SZ "time.windows.com,0x9"
    Type REG_SZ "NT5DS

    But w32tm configuration displays...
    w32tm /query /configuration
    ...
    Type: NTP (Policy)
    NtpServer: pool.ntp.org (Policy)

    See details here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f633ea8a-81be-4a60-83fd-c9839f6a14f9/when-i-look-at-the-w32tm-registry-values-they-do-not-agree-with-query-status?forum=winserver8gen
