  1. 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.

  2. 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    Paging files on guests seem outdated when you have hosts with huge memory pools and dynamic memory allocation.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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. granular selection for Processor Compatibility

    It would be great to select which Instruction extensions should be filtered.

    Scenario: Customer has Haswell CPUs in the servers and in one point he will add new servers, but they will have Broadwell architecture... There are just few extensions, but if customer enables Processor Compatibility, all usefull extensions such as AES are filtered out. It would be great to filter just the difference...

  7. Change the disk size while VM is in replica whithout lose replica

    Expample:
    Having a VM with a replica. Now I will change the size of a harddisk at the primary site (most of the time to increase the volume size).
    After I do that the replica is broken and I must completly restart the replica with lost of all previous replicas.

    Please find a way to do this online without break the replica!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. Delete in Hyper-V console - select from delete/delete configuration/keep all, just remove from manager

    Delete in Hyper-V console should offer several options - delete all/delete just configuration/just remove from manager and keep everything

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
