  1. Hyper-V 2019 - Guest VMs shutdown unexpectedly

    When the host server shuts down, a bug in which guest VMs are not automatically shut down occurs in Windows 10 1809 or Windows Server 2019.
    It is also a topic in the forum.
    Please solve this bug as soon as possible.

  2. Hyper-V Server 2019 is missing the Remote Desktop Virtualization Host feature

    Previous versions of Hyper-V Server included the Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RDVH) feature. Installs from the June 2019 .ISOs don't have this feature.

    "Add-WindowsFeature –Name RDS-Virtualization"

    doesn't work.

    Previous versions of Hyper-V Server included the RD Virtualization Host feature for VDI deployments. Please restore this capability.

  3. Fix Mac Address spoofing in Hyper-V 2019

    When we have a virtual router as a VM on Hyper-V 2019 running a setup that requires Mac Address Spoofing to be enabled, then performance is really bad.
    We have testet with routers based on Windows Server 2019, Linux and BSD, and the results are the same.
    Migrating the same VM's to a Windows Server 2016 node, the problem is gone.

    It seems to be a problem related to Hyper-V 2019 "Mac Address Spoofing" function

  5. VMNetworkAdapter: Allow arp out for multicast mac addresses (even if MacAddressSpoofing is off)

    VMNetworkAdapter on vSwitch: Please allow arp out for multicast mac addresses even if MacAddressSpoofing is off (or add another option to do so). It's not spoofing telling the switch about a multicast mac - how else would it know about it? It belongs to everyone! NLB is nice L4 active/active redundancy but relies on multicast or unicast flood. Multicast traffic is always received on default queue (understandable as multicast mac is not associated with vNic and can't be allocated a VMQ - but, default queue has finite cpu scalability). If you have MacAddressSpoofing enabled, then Windows unfortunately does not allocate…

  6. Allow/Support USB port redirect from physical host to virtual machine

    Please finally allow physical USB port redirection to a virtual machine. I know this would limit high availability of the virtual machine but sadly some applications/hardware still require com port communications.

  8. Provide native conversion tools

    For conversion from vmdk to Hyper-V we had to use external tools.
    It is weird that there are no Microsoft tools to provide seamless conversion to Hyper-V. Instead one must rely on 3rd party products.
    Provide solutions integrated into VMM to convert and kind of .vmdk or .vdi hasslefree into new Hyper-V guest.

  9. Suppress SPN registration for Hyper-V services

    In domain environments when the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management service starts it registers six SPNs on the system's computer account in AD corresponding to three services:
    - Hyper-V Replica Service
    - Microsoft Virtual Console Service
    - Microsoft Virtual System Migration Service

    In some scenarios it would be useful to suppress the automatic registration of these SPNs. For example, I manage several secure networks which include Windows Server 2016 VMs which utilise Virtualization Based Security features. These VMs require the Hyper-V role to be installed as a dependency of VBS but do not host any VMs. There is no valid scenario…

  11. Delegate VM Managers

    I love you MS, but it's rediculous that i can't delegate hypervisor access (console, vm settings, etc) to the person responsible for that VM. AFAIK every major hypervisor natively allows this but yours.

  12. Graphics adapter resolution

    We could not see an option to increase resolution on unsupported OS like Linux. So we are stuck with something like 1152x1024 and not 1920x1080 as it should be. This is year 2019 and there should be appropriate resolution options for actual displays.

  13. DirectX support for Hyper-V Virtual Graphics Adapter

    The graphics adapter lacks certain functionality to run software that relies on DirectX.
    For example Kodi won't run returning error 887A0004 - DXGI_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED
    AFAIK this indicates that DirectX is not supported.
    As on Server 2019 the support for RemoteFX 3D has been deprecated, there seems to be no way to make it work.
    This is unacceptable. The graphics Adapter should be enhanced to support this.

  14. Provide conversion tool to convert generation 1 guests into generation 2 guests

    When converting exisiting VMware guests into Hyper-V guests we are not aware of any tool to offer conversion into generation 2 guests.
    Hence we are sitting here with generation 1 guests and there is no tool to convert them into generation 2. We are aware ot a Powershell script but this has failed on us.
    Provide conversion from within VMM to convert generation 1 guests in generation 2 guests.

  15. Allow Vmware Workstation to be run next to Hyper-V

    ATM only 32-bit Workstation can run while Hyer-V is active.
    Support 64-bit VMware Workstation as well so that both can be active at the same time.

  16. Add default behaviour to connection bar

    Whenever connected to a guest, the connection bar is pinned on the top and needs to be unpinned manually. This is very much annoying.
    This needs to be changed to add a default option to have the connection bar unpinned initially.

  18. Full screen on dual monitor does not restore correctly

    On Windows Server 2019 we have exactly this issue: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c95e831d-36ae-4307-b3fd-a9daac6b5790/full-screen-on-dual-monitor-does-not-restore-correctly?forum=win10itprovirt

    Solution in this thread was mentioned to change the WDDM settings in gpedit. This does not fix it in our case. Neither on Windows 10 and not on Windows 8.1 guests as there is no such setting in gpedit in Windows 8.1.
    We are using vmconnect.exe to connect toguest with 2 monitors. Both monitors are enabled in enhanced session. Minimizing leads to the issue that monitors are only restored on one monitor not on both. Additionally restoration has errors as scrollbars are being displayed and clicking on icons does not…

  19. Host custom DPI scaling breaks Modern UI in guests

    We are running Windows Server 2019 with Windows 8.1 guest.
    Custom scaling on host ist set to 130% which is perfect setting for our eyes to work on computer screen all day.
    According to this blog post https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/virtual_pc_guy/2016/06/23/hyper-v-ui-updates-for-high-dpi/ in enhanced session the guest gets all dpi information from the host.
    This needs to be fixed so we can revert to custom scaling again.
    However the modern ui does not scale correctly. Start screen, charms bar and settings pages are way too big. Apps cannot be started, error message is "This app can’t open. The screen resolution is too low for…
