  1. Copy-VMFile -FileSource

    For copying files from the VM over VMBus the Copy-VMFile CmdLet should have also CopyFileSourceType 'Client' for the Parameter -FileSource.

  4. Remove paging files from Windows guests or add "No Paging File" mode

    Paging files on guests seem outdated when you have hosts with huge memory pools and dynamic memory allocation. The main problem is that paging file activity deltas generate an inordinate amount of replication traffic. Many experts recommend moving paging files to a separate VHDX and excluding that disk from replication, but that can cause failover issues. Please reevaluate whether a "No Paging File" mode could be added to Windows. Tags: pagefile, page file, paging file, swap file.

  5. Support new-pssession and copy-item -tosession with powershell direct

    Powershell direct is great, however it would also be super useful to be able to use it with the diffrent cmdlests that use pssessions. primarily for me, id like to use it with copy-item to copy files directly to and from vms

  6. Import VM with double click on file configuration

    I suggest to copy the same function of VMware that allows import of virtual machine with double click on file configuration. This is much better than the classic import procedure, in particular when there are many VMs to import.

  7. Hyper-V VMconnection - add support for 4K monitors

    Please add support for higher resolution in RDP over VMBus. 2194x1234 is not enough - RDP itself supports more.

  8. Provide a tool to do P2V's, V2V's, and C2C (Cloud 2 Cloud) without having to bring down the server until ready for cut over.

    We need a better tool to migrate systems to Hyper V. With the cloud starting to catch on I have customers who want to move work loads from cloud to cloud. This currently very difficult to do without some middleware cloud to do the conversions. Would be nice to be able to convert to and from physical, virtual, or clouds regardless of provider.

  9. Hyper-V live migrate to replica

    I really do appreciate the live migration of VMs, so that I can seamlessly maintain hosts. I also cherish the async replication between hosts for disaster recovery. What I do miss is the option to live migrate, using the already replicated storage, to the target host. This would save enormous amount of resources.

  11. Ability to replicate shared vhdxs.

    Well done for implementing shared vhdxs, and making guest clustering a possibility. But how are we supposed to make use of replication when you are unable to replicate a shared vhdx? We would like to be able to maintain a backup solution that we can failover to if need be.

    Please can you implement this feature so that we can contine to rely on the benefits of replication.

    Thanks

  12. Folder organisation in Failover Cluster Manager and Hyper V. As seen in VM Ware.

    I would like to see the ability so that we can create folders insdie of Failover Cluster Manger, or Hyper V. This will help to enable us to organise our VMs accorinding to specific roles. We have around 300 VMs, and it's extremely difficult to differentiate between them all.

    VM Workstation has this feature, and it makes admiinistration so much easier. I think the ability to create named folders to hold your VMs is well overdue.

  14. Allow/Support com port redirect from physical host to virtual machine

    Please finally allow physical com 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.

  15. Search VM in Hyper-V Manager

    Suppose you have 100s of VM in multiple Hyper-V servers and all are attached to the same manager. searching of a perticular VM to connect to becomes cumbersome and a search option should be given

  16. Make HyperV Manager show IOPS.

    It would be great if HyperV manager showed IOPs. Right now when we have a noisy host, it is really difficult for us to figure out who it is. We have to pull of System Center and that is always delayed.

  17. Ask confirmation on consequence of action, not on the action it self.

    In hyperv manager, I can choose a action, and I will be asked for confirmation of the action, eg. delete or apply checkpoint. I want to be asked confirmation on the consequence, eg, delete:" The server "xxxx" will keep on running, no data will be lost. After the deletion, the server cannot return to this checkpoint. Delete checkpoint?", instead something like "Realy delete?". If I am sure, I will NOT read the text anyway, but as a (uncertain) beginner sysop, I DO want to know what I am to be causing.

  18. Provide an AzMan replacement

    We've lost the ability for granular control of our Hyper-V hosts when AzMan was deprecated. While the Hyper-V Administrators role provides access, it does so too broadly. Giving access to the entire host is not desired.
    Using VMM can't be the only answer esp. since Enhanced Session Mode is not available.

  19. Live Storage Migration of Shared VHDX

    We make heavy use of live storage migrations in order to move data between different storage devices for upgrades, maintenance, additional space, performance, etc.

    We want to use clustered VMs to improve HA for our most critical systems, but requiring downtime on the system in order to move the data volume limits what systems we can use this with.

  20. Increase checkpoint AVHDX blocksize

    Now, block size of AVHDX made by checkpoint is 2MB. Less than 8MB could not perform Slab Consolidation from guest.
