  1. Storage Replica Cluster to Cluster support with Automatic VM Orchastrated Fail-over

    To provide the Ultimate Disaster Recovery solution across separate clusters for Active/Active scenarios (same HW) or Active Passive scenarios (different HW), Providing a One to Many placement via Synchronous/Asynchronous Replication, providing RPO/RTO of choice, and to automatically Orchestrate failover of VM's to destination of choice with the RTO of choice, to patch and complete lifecycle management on each cluster without impact to overall service.

    Why is Cluster to Cluster DR solution important, A Stretch Cluster can still suffer issues at the Hyper-V level and impact the whole cluster, the same for life cycle management and patching, requires the same hardware…

  3. Option to change disks from clustered storage subsystem to local storage subsystem.

    Have configured standalone SQL servers with AlwaysOn Availability groups configured for HA. Now when adding two local disks to each server the disks are linked to the clustered storage subsystem not the local one which means I am unable to create a storage pool in Server manager as it states that a minimum if 3 are required to create a cluster storage pool. However I only want to create a local one - not a clustered pool.

    Can you please provide a way to either disable the clustered storage subsystem (not need in this config as only a standalone SQL…

  4. Thumbnail preview in Explorer for workfolders

    Since Windows 10 1803 there is no image preview in Explorer. However, some people need this feature for their work. I find it particularly annoying that this will not work even if "On Demand File Access" is disabled.

  6. Add work folders cmdlet Get-WorkFolderStatus

    Add a cmdlet in powershell to let administrators peek into the status of work folders for current user or all users on this computer.

    Today i have to look at file attributes and the exitcode in the registry.

  7. Improve visual feedback during sync

    When a user has almost 300 000 files in its Work Folder it seems that the control panel applet does not update as it should. The general feeling is that the computer is busy with going through the filelist rather than informing the user about what its busy doing. This leads to frustration from the enduser and an incertainty about the current syncstate.

    We are currently using Windows 10 1803 Edu 64-bit on our clients, is this better in newer versions?

  8. ErrorCode: 40961

    My issue is transfering files with long path names or where I have access denied in the Storage Migration Service.

    Error "Couldn't transfer storage on any of the endpoints" and "Check if the source device is online - we couldn't access it."
    Transfer validation failed. ErrorCode: 40961
    As to this URL:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/known-issues#error-couldnt-transfer-storage-on-any-of-the-endpoints-and-check-if-the-source-device-is-online---we-couldnt-access-it

    But if I use Robocopy I can copy these files with long path names or if I get access denied.

    May we have the same possibilities?

  9. Storage Migration Service Support for Samba, NAS, SAN destination

    Support for Samba, NAS, SAN DESTINATION! Can't believe this is not one of THE biggest feature requests. We have so many times where we may be, wait for it... migrating AWAY from Windows Servers onto NAS devices. We still use and migrate to Windows Server 2016 and 2019, but we also have need to do the same migrations TO destinations that are NAS devices.

  11. Storage migration service faster Transfer delta sync

    Would be nice to have a faster Delta Sync for the Storage Migration Service. It takes many hours to run the delta sync.

  12. Add "Select All Shares" and "Deselect All Shares" to Storage Migration Services

    When selecting shares to transfer within Storage Migration Service's Transfer Data section, all shares are selected by default. We have 435 shares and would like to transfer just one.

  13. Windows Admin Center Storage Migration should be able to use domain accounts

    The cutover portion of the storage migration appears to use local accounts. We follow the CIS baselines and network access/remote login with local accounts is disabled. It would be nice to be able to use a domain account that has local admin rights to do the cutover.

  14. Storage Replica standard

    Storage Replica limitation is very tight in Standard Edition - this should be increased. 2TB is very little in any single node, especially as price/tb continues to fall rapidly, having a limit tied to TB's is like putting an expiry date on its usefulness. Perhaps limiting to number of nodes will be more effictive limitation ie, 2 or 3 nodes?

  16. Storage Migration Service: Allow upgrading from NTFS to ReFS

    Make it possible to have different file systems between source and destination servers. So we can easily upgrade file shares to run on ReFS instead of NTFS.

  19. Allow Exceptions for Work Folders by File Type

    We redirect "Documents" and other well-known folders to Work Folders. Some applications write files to the Documents or other synched paths and this prevents them being able to synch. For example, many Add-in Express apps write their log files to a subfolder of Documents, and the iTunes library file writes to a subfolder of music. Both of these are examples of files that are constantly open for writing and thus cannot be synched.

    I'd like to be able to exclude some file types from Work Folders synch, and I'd like to be able to exclude some sub-folders based on name.

  20. Fix bug in Windows Server 2016 Server Backup (status -> all backups -> view details)

    When you open table with details of all backups and sort it on date there is bug that sort date field as string instead as date (1.1. 11.3. 12.1 instead 1.1. 12.1 11.3) (Even Windows Server 2008 R2 had it correct).
