How can we improve the virtualization platform and management in Windows Server?

It is also a topic in the forum.

    How on earth is this still not fixed!? I was planing to upgrade all Hosts to 2019, and i find this huge problem.
    As DCs and Database Servers cannot use the "save state" option, there is no way to run them safely under this OS.
    Worse: i even readed on the net that it also affects 2016!? Is that true!?
    Very dissapointing. How can we trust Hyper-V if such a huge problem is unresolved for more than half a year, and counting!?
    With all the hype on the Cloud, how can Microsoft afford to have such a problem on their hypervisor, and not care to fix it? Does this affect Azure?

    I've had the same issues when I tried restarting a VM and it doesn't restart so unfortunately I don't use it anymore as I cannot see the VM is I'm remotely working so cannot confirm if its restarted.

    I tested by open a VM connection VM Connection and tried restart a VM from WAC to see if the VM restarted and it didn't however I did not experience the VM shutdown unexpectedly but it doesn't seem to work
