  1. Put RemoteFx or equivalent back into Server 2019 for RDSH

    https://www.microsoftpartnercommunity.com/t5/Feedback-Support-Discussions/Where-are-the-quot-new-graphics-acceleration-options-for/m-p/26491#M1093

    Where are the "new graphics acceleration options for virtualized environments"?
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/windows-server-1803-removed-features

    Your article promises new graphics acceleration options to replace Remotefx. Where are they? Discrete Device Assignment is not an option for us as the hardware needed to run this is in excess of $20,000 per server and then there are additional per user licensing costs on top of that from the GPU vendor. We were successfully running hyper-v vms with remote desktop session host on Server 2016 and they were running RemoteFX. Now we have Server 2019 and you have deprecated RemoteFX without providing any valid solutions or…

  2. We need Remotefx back

    We need Remotefx back, or an affordable replacement ASAP. Why is Remotefx being removed on Servers 2012 & 2016 without an affordable replacement when it is well known that most of your loyal customers invest on system to run for a number of years, sometimes 7 and/or longer. Windows 2016 was released just a few years ago, and now you are asking your loyal customers to throw everything away after a couple of years of usage, and come up with another huge expense on software and equipment. We are a small shop that spent over $100,000 on a Hyper-v/Remotefx VDI…

  3. Bring back RemoteFX

    Please bring back RemoteFX. We dont expect to buy graphic card for each VM to assign it via DDA.

  4. Allow host to run other hypervisor (via Nested virtualization)

    Currently Hyper-V locks out other virtualization apps when installed on host. But it is also said that Hyper-V upon installation essentially makes a "host" just another (although privileged) guest. Likewise, we know that nested VMs are supported for a while now. And I tested, it does support other 3rd party virtualization software in a guest.

    So why not allow (even if only via Powershell) option to enable "nested" for a host OS as well?

    Current workaround is : Windows host with Hyper-V -> Windows guest VM for which nesting was enabled -> 3rd party hypervisor -> <something running in it>

  5. Number of

    Number of virtual processors during New Virtual machine wizard

    You can configure certain settings like VM version, size of harddisk but not the number of virtual processors. After creating VM, it's always the first thing to change

  6. CPU + RAM Hot Add for Hyper-V

    Please add the ability to hot-add CPUs or RAM (dynamic RAM or fixed RAM assignment) while a VM is running.
    Equivalent to VMware. It is not something you might need every day but it can make a big difference for downtimes when you sized an on-prem VM wrong

    Implementation:
    WAC > VM > Properties > CPU / RAM add checkbox to enable this feature.
    Minimum requirement Hyper-V VM compat level 10.0

  11. share clipboard between Windows host and Ubuntu guest

    It would be really good if you could share the Windows clipboard with a guest Ubuntu machine. In particular, it would make managing passwords much easier.

  14. Legacy PCI DDA (Discreet Device Assignment)

    I have to use VMWare just because I need to passthrough legacy PCI devices to VM that are 32-bit (for devices that only have 32-bit drives). While this is not a popular thing to do, I don't think it would be "difficult" to do since other hypervisors can offer this feature.

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

    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.

  18. 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.

  19. Backup to affordable cloud (e.g. Wasabi) for offsite protection

    Wasabi ( http://www.wasabi.com ) is a very low cost cloud storage that I like to recommend all my customers to use as the repository for offsite backup. Hope it can provide support for this cloud storage, like what Cloudberry ( http://www.cloudberrylab.com ) and CloudBacko ( http://www.cloudbacko.com ) are offering currently.

  20. Start VM during backup

    Current behaviour:
    When a backup is running, you can not shutdown or start a VM from the console. (but you can do a shutdown or restart from the guest os)

    The problem:
    When a VM stopped, for whatever reason, you have no way to start it again - except by killing the VMMS service or by stopping the backup - both not really acceptable solutions.

    Solution: Just let us start a VM when the backup is running.
