  1. Increase checkpoint AVHDX blocksize

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

  2. USB Passthrough Support

    Give us the feature VBox provides us already. Like: Plug a USB Dongle in the Host Server and then passthrough to the VM Server where the application is waiting desperately for it. Right now we need special hardware for that which provides access by LAN and special software.

  3. Shared VHDX sector size mistmach

    Right now if you create a shared VHDX and there's a mismatch between the physical/logical sector size between the physical volume and the VHDX, Hyper-V lets you mount the VHDX but the initialization of the disk fails in the guest with a generic IO error. It would be nice to have some sort of validation done by Hyper-V or that it would support the various sector size for shared VHDX no matter what.

    See the following article:

    http://martinhannemann.com/shared-vhdx-on-storage-spaces/

    One of our goal was to convert an existing file server VM into a guest cluster but because of this we either…

  4. Parent Partition Memory Maximum

    It would be nice to set a maximum amount of memory that the Parent Partition can consume. If I have a host with 128GB of RAM I would like for example to say that the parent can use a maximum of 4 GB and the remaining amount is guaranteed to be available for VMs. It makes for the configuration of a total amount of static memory that can be assigned to VMs much simpler.

  5. Unifing creation of folders


    1. Create VM from VMM create different folder view, than Create from Cluster or Hyper-V


    2. When create VM from Hyper-V or Cluster you only specify path for VM without VMname
      When you move VM to different server you have to specify path with VMName - please let's be more consistent


    3. Moving VM Storage from Cluster require Drag-n-Drop files - it should work the same like on moving directly on Hyper-V

  6. Syncronize VM configuration changes when Hyper-V Replica is Enabled

    Add an option to syncronize (or not) configuration changes (CPU, Memory, Disk, NIC, etc) from primary VM to replica VM, when Hyper-V Replica is enabled.

  7. Incorporate building of host vNICs and configuration into Hyper-V GUI

    Add functionality in Hyper-V GUI to create host vNICs and manage them rather than requiring Powershell.

  8. vSwitch default minimumbandwidthmode should be weight

    When vSwitch is created from Hyper-V console or Posh, minimumbandwidthmode is absolute.

  9. VMQ auto Tuning (aligning with CPU cores..)

    Auto tuning for VMQ and assigning different processors for multiple NICs, aligning NUMA ... Currently multiple NICs are using same processors (0,2,4,6). It would be great if it would be configured to automatically move from CPU 0 and spread across.

  11. Import-VM should take a look also into the root folder for VHDs

    During import process, Import-VM script looks into "Virtual Hard Disks" folder for VHDs. But when you create VM with SC VMM, it puts disks into the root of VM folder. So during recovery VHDs needs to be moved into Virtual Hard Disks folder manually. It would be great if import-vm would look also into the root of VM folder.

  12. Provide support for USB like a disk in Hyper-v

    It is I think one of the most awaited feature. We should be able to create virtual USBs and attach them to VMs. also, we should have an option to present USB as a pass through USB.

  13. Change settings for running VMs that will be applied upon next VM boot

    Sometimes I want to change the defaults for a running VM (boot order, less/more Startup RAM, ...). Right now I can only change these settings when a VM is turned off. I should be able to change the boot order of a running VM, even though the changed settings will only take effect during a future reboot.

  15. New integrated UI for Hyper-V

    It's one of the most important area where you must working on. We need a new UI for Hyper-V, in particular a new UI with cluster management integrated and also with more functionality, like Performance View and PowerShell history.

  16. Hot-add vCPU for VMs

    Sometime we need to scale up VMs and want to avoid downtime in the process. Example: SQL Server VMWare has been able to do that for quite some time and is something we miss since we have migrated to Hyper-V.
