  1. Implementing Key Based Folder Shares

    Folder Shares requires always a user and password. Implementig a key based share can increase the security of some very important data.

    Authenticating from an other windows mashine or a linux mashine to mount shared Folders.

  2. File Server Resource Manager

    Hi

    Looks like there is a bug in the File Server Resource Manager modules.

    Windows 2012 R2 - fully patched march 2016

    When creating a new FSRMFileScreenTemplate, it defaults to active instead of passive, and I can't change it to passive.
    Example:
    New-FsrmFileScreenTemplate -name test -IncludeGroup test -Notification test
    This results in an active template. The command has an -active switch - which cannot be set to $false, but no -passive switch.
    Setting the property afterwards to $false doesn't change it in the GUI - it is still active.

    Had to use the old filescrn.exe utility to set the template…

  4. Introduce "aggregate views" in DFS that represent directories from multiple locations in a single folder

    It would be useful in large file server installations to be able to have the contents of multiple folders, even from multiple servers, merged into one view. \CORPFILE1\HOMEDIRS could provide an aggregate view for \FILESERVER1\HOMEDIRS, \FILESERVER2\HOMEDIRS, \FILESERVER3\HOMEDIRS

    This introduces an issue during file creation in this structure - where does the new file or folder go? A Windows Explorer extension could prompt for creation target, though there may be more elegant solutions.

  5. Scale out general purpose file server

    I just watched the SMB Direct Ignite presentation on Channel 9. Really cool stuff. I would like to use the SMB Direct solution to build a general purpose scale out file server and not just to store VMs. With 2012 R2, Microsoft did not recommend the scale out file server solution using a shared SAS fabric as a general purpose file server because of the limitations with the Cluster File system. Now that ReFS is being used as the clustered file system, has this limitation been lifted? If so, have improvements been made to ReFS in Windows Server 2016 to…
