  2. Enable Network Selection for Storage Migration

    There should be a way to specify a Network to use for Storage Migrations, just like for Live Migrations. If you are not using SMB for your cluster storage, then the ability to specify the network for storage migrations of VMs would be handy so you don't saturate the management network.

  3. HyperV and HAXM should not be mutually exclusive

    Mobile developers want to use emulators, amongst other tech like containers, from different vendors. Currently, some of the emulators (Windows) are based on HyperV and some other (Google) are based on HAXM. This makes it almost impossible to do cross-platform development on Windows.

  6. Windows 2016 + Win10 Ent Guest + RemoteFX => DPI setting not preserved


    1. Install Windows 2016 and enable RemoteFX, 2. Install Win10 Enterprise as guest with RemoteFX enabled, 3. Connect to the Win10Ent using Win10Pro client. BUG: the DPI setting on Win10Pro client is not passed through to Win10Ent VM. Note that DPI setting can be passed thru if RemoteFX is disabled.

  7. Check MAC Address before create Teaming

    I found a strange problem with a host WS2012R2 (HP Proliant DL 380 g9 with 1 NIC 4 ports) during Teaming creation. For an astral reason, when I create a team, Windows assign the same MAC Address to Team NIC and also to Hyper-V Virtual Switch; the result is the total fail of everything.

    Why Windows Server 2012 R2 hasn’t a pre-check task to understand both NIC have the same MAC Address? Much better is check the MAC Address of the entire host.

  8. VM VLAN defined at vswitch port level

    It is more clear the vmware strategy to create portgroups on a vswitch that specifies the VLAN. All VMs connected to that portgroup are connected to same VLAN.

    What is the point on defining per VM, you are allowing users to create VM and they have to guess what is the VLAN id.

    Please review this and allow move VLAN VM definition to the vswitch.

  11. Hyper-V VM Console Tree

    How about adding a VM tree to the Hyper-V Manager MMC so that we can select VM's in the left pane and connect to and see their consoles in the right pane, similar to the VM "tree" that exists in the VMware vSphere GUI client.

  12. Windows 2016 + Win10 Ent VM/Client + RemoteFX => DPI setting not preserved

    Host is Win2016 TP4, with Win10Ent VM, and Win10Ent client. RemoteFX enabled, set to 4K resolution with 1GB vram. DPI on Win10 client is 350%, but RDP to Win10Ent VM, DPI setting not preserved. Also cannot open Display Settings within VM - the app crashed and disappeared so can't change DPI within VM. Disabling RemoteFX resolves this issue.

  13. Dynamic Memory free memory driver locked improvments.

    In our environment we have many machines setup using dynamic memory. It seems when we need to do 8GB startup memory for applications so they can register 8GB of memory and we set minimum memory lower say 1GB and our max memory to 8GB we end up with a machine using 7.5GB of Memory @ all times. The memory is being used by the driver locked portion of memory. I know this is as designed. But I have profiled the machine and see it never gets close to 7.5GB of memory on startup. So why does it act like it…

  14. Allow PowerShell Direct to use certificate auth, ie SSH Key's

    It would be use to have an option to allow ssh key type functionality to authenticate for PowerShell Direct. Also don't limit this to Windows only or just Windows 10 / Server 2016, olders OS's should be included.

  15. Reduce window chrome for Hyper-V VM

    Running a VM in Hyper-V with either Enhanced Session or Virtual Machine connection has a LOT of chrome on the UI. And it's a permanent frame you're stuck with, unless you full screen.

    My idea: minimize the chrome on the interface, or all customization on a VM level. Perhaps I don't want to display the power off or shut down buttons on a certain VM.

    Alternately, collapsible UI elements would be a plus. I constantly run Windows 8.1 and 7 VMs, and on a modern wide screen display, I'm losing a big chunk of viewable area due to how big…

  16. Isolate replication traffic.

    There should be an option to chose the physical NIC or team one would want to send the Replication traffic thru while using kerberos for authentication. It can be achieved while using certificate based replication. but not in an AD environment.

  17. Powershell module for the Docker engine

    The existing Docker CLI didn't look as intuitive as Powershell. There should be a Powershell module to manage the Docker engine as well.

  18. Error if you try to make a VM in a non-existent Directory

    Found a weird situation. Imagine that you've got your Hyper-V settings set to default new VMs to a non-existent directory.

    If you begin to create a VM and click Finish at any point during the process, you'll get a bizarre error of 'Could not initialize VM'.

    I've solved the situation by creating the directory first, and I can't seem to recreate the error, but the message could be a bit better. The error code was 0x8000003.
