  1. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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. 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.

  13. 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.

  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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  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.

  20. 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.
