  1. PIN and virtual smart card logon for Enhanced Session Mode (ESM)

    PIN and virtual smart card logon for Enhanced Session Mode (ESM) in vmconnect.exe. This would be a benefit in PAW/SAW scenarios, as well as local dev, to facilitate logons to local HyperV guests.

  2. 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.

  3. Support for Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter

    Allow a Virtual Switch to connect to the Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter. Other virtualization products allow this; Hyper-V doesn't. This is a severe limitation.

  4. 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.

  5. Hyper-V: Allow Replication also if one of the disks are physical

    Actually i can't enable replication if one disk is a physical disk, also if i don't plan to enable replication for the physical disk. I would prefer to enable replication without this physical disk, but for the other virtual disks.
    It seem to be only an block in the Hyper-V Manager, so it would be great to move this check for blocking the replication after the user was able to select the disk to be replicated.
    Only if here the physical disk is still enabled, block the replication with the corresponding error message:
    "Replication can't be activated. Replication can't activated…

  6. Allow automatic stop action setting to be changed/applied while a VM is running

    The ability to change the stop action of VM without having to power it off.
    Or at least allow it to be prestaged for it to do it on a VM reboot

  8. Set VHD(X) storage as persistent (immune to Revert)

    There currently is no way to add a VHD(X) to a virtual machine so that changes will not roll back after a Revert. One could use a network drive as a workaround, but this is not always feasible. Therefore, an option on a per-disk basis would be desirable.

  9. copy and paste

    should allow copy and paste between linux VM and host
    the enhanced session thing is not easy to get right and breaks easily plus it seems a heavy weight way to get this to work

  12. Nested Virtualization Support for AMD CPUs

    Currently nested virtualization is only supported on Intel CPUs. Please add support on AMD CPUs. At the very least Epyc CPUs, but older Opteron CPU support would be nice as well.

  13. In Hyper-V Configuration 8.3. When using the Ubuntu 18.04.1 Quick Create install, there needs to be an option to specify HDD size!

    I ran out of disk space on my Ubuntu setup because Hyper-V only provided it a 11GB storage.

    You can go back and expand the hard disk, but this does not translate right over into Ubuntu because it will not automatically take up the allocated space.
    Now I have to track down the ISO to boot up in Hyper-V to see if I can manage the disk drive. This should all be native to Hyper-V.
    In fact the ISO of Ubuntu it downloads she stored so that it can accessed later for instance such as this where a LIVE iso…

  16. [BUG] Fix Ctrl-Alt-UpArrow keyboard shortcut in Virtual Machine Connection

    The shortcut for vmconnect.exe which releases the capture of keyboard and mouse input is Ctrl-Alt-LeftArrow by default and is configurable to a few other key combinations as well. Regardless, of what is configured however, Ctrl-Alt-UpArrow appears to always trigger this functionality as well and it is not even one of the combinations available to be configured to in Hyper-V Settings.

    This means this combination is unavailable in other client applications because vmconnect picks it up first.

  17. migrate between clusters

    Currently the live migration of a VM from one cluster to another requires several manual steps: remove the role from the first cluster, switch to hyper-v manager, initiate a shared-nothing migration to one of the nodes of the destination cluster, wait, connect to the destination node, add the VM role in to the destination cluster.
    If would be ideal to just be able to select a Migrate to Another Cluster option at the start, make the required choices and then just leave Failover Cluster Managers on the source and destination clusters to sort out the rest. This would also eliminate…

  18. Virtual Machine Connection: please remember the last selected connection setting - without forcing us to save and lose the connection dlg

    Good evening

    If we use Virtual Machine Connection it's really very annoying that the connection dialog does not remember the last selected Display Resolution.

    We know that we can save them - but then, we no longer get the connection dialog, which is even worse because we often change other settings, but not the Display Resolution.

    Therefore:
    please remember the last used settings of a Virtual Machine Connection without forcing your customers to use the "Save my settings" checkbox and completely losing the useful connection dialog.

    The Microsoft "Usability" is really a pain for professional customers which still use Keyboards…

  19. Provide a tool to downgrade configuration versions.

    I am running into the issue of Windows 10 having Config 8.2 and my Server 2016 Config 8.0. Running Windows Updates so far has not yielded the needed 8.2

    I often create my VMs on Windows 10, export and bring them up on Server. This is only going to get worst. Let's fix it right away.

    An option could be offered also to export to specific version, of course a warning that capabilities will be lost. Only makes sense.

  20. NAT IPv6

    It would be nice to allow devices behind the NAT to access ipv6 resources as well externally. Right now this is not possible and as such the default switch for example, sends traffic out only if something is reachable via IPv4.
