  2. GPO to change the default path of the Work Folder

    Today, when we configure the Work Folders by GPO we dont have a way to change the default location/path of the work folder.
    It defaults to %USERPROFILE%\Work Folders.
    This is totally a show stopper for me cause we redirect user files to another drive and dont want user files in the system drive. Think this is pretty standard on enterprises. We have a way to redirect almost everything in Windows. But dont have a way redirect Work Folders...

  3. in a DR secnario where a site is complete down, the ability to reverse SR replication via powershell is not applicable

    Currently with Storage Replica, you can reverse replication via powershell as described here (second form the bottom): https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-docs/storage/storage-replica/storage-replica-known-issues

    However, in a DR scanario where the initial source site/node is completely down, the ability to reverse SR replication via powershell is not applicable.

  5. The storage pool does not have sufficient eligible resources for the creation of the specified virtual disk

    I have a 3 node cluster setup and validated for Storage Spaces Direct. Each node has two 1TB SSDs and two 4TB HDDs (total 6 of each) all of which are cleaned of partitions and data (running on Dell HBA330s). All nodes have the required networking in places, are joined in a cluster and are running Server 2016 TP5 with the latest updates. Running cluster validation for Storage Spaces direct comes back with only the warning about 3 node cluster vs 4 (I only want mirrors, so 3 should work).

    The problem is no matter what I do I cannot…

  6. Grant-DFSNAccess requires GUI/cmd intervention to work

    As detailed in this KB article from March 2014 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/2938148) the Grant-DFSNAccess cmdlet requires use of the GUI to work, or there is a workaround of using the old dfsutil command instead.

    Is it possible to have this fixed so that we can use native PowerShell to configure the DFS environment?

  7. Publish Work Folders Client API

    Work Folders would probably get a lot more traction if you published the client API and allow third party developers and MDM tools to do direct integration.

  8. Storage spaces direct with Nano Server unable to Extend Volume

    With storage spaces direct using Nano Server, I have added additional nodes to the SoFS cluster. This has allowed me to grow the storage pool and the virtual disk. However the volume still reports its original size and it cannot be extended. In WS2012R2 you would have done this with tools like DiskPart or disk Management neither of these work with Nano

  9. cache

    We would appreciate it if Microsoft supports one NVMe only for caching in Windows Server 2016 RTM. A node failure would be accepted if one NVMe fails, because the cost of an enterprise NVMe is very high.

  11. Chkdsk /Scan Has a Bug

    The traditional read only chkdsk is finding errors and then recommends running the new chkdsk /scan function. When I run the new /scan function it says there is no problems. Which is it? Details can be found on this Technet post.

  12. Work Folders Group Policy

    Work Folders has the scheduled task Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Work Folders\Work Folders Maintenance Work. I need to set this task to run hourly via task scheduler for all users. I was looking for a way to do this via group policy. I know there is a tasks option under GP preferences, but I can not find a way to incorporate this built in task to the GPO. It would be nice to have an admx template or something to be able to push a setting to all computers to run this task on a set schedule instead of just on logon.

  13. How about we implement Disk Quotas, not just on individual user accounts but Security Groups within Active directory

    Within the File Server Resource Manager, we should be able to implement a quota on a file path for a Security Group of Users instead of Individual users,

  14. Get volume type to differentiate which is local disk, clustered disk, or network share,etc.

    From Windows Explorer, besides every volume letters, we have the volume (network location) Type: Local Disk / CD Drive / Clustered Disk / Network Drive. Would like to have a simple powershell command get it.

  15. 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…

  16. Work Folders Client side awareness of Quota and FSRM

    Currently if we enable quota for Work Folders the client side UI will still all available space on the server.
    It would be good if the client is aware of the quota and can display space available based on quota value and perhaps even UI warning/information based on space available.

    If FSRM have file screening available and you add a file that is not allowed then you will only see a access denied when syncing.
    It would be good if the client could understand the settings and inform the user when file is added or at least better information from…

  17. Work Folders Hardening

    Currently Work Folders allows us to Encrypt data on the client device. This is a nice feature, the data within the Work Folder on the client device is encrypted. However, at any point in time, a user can Right Click their Work folder and "Remove Enterprise Control" at which point data is unencrypted. Also, at any point in time a user can open the properties of a file and choose to remove encryption. We do not want users to be able to remove encryption, if we chose to encrypt the contents of the work folders it should remain encrypted. This…

  19. Multi-Tenancy for Service Providers

    Work Folders really provides a great enterprise like scalability at the same time addressing requirements from any customer segments. Many service providers are interested in developing solutions around WorkFolders where they can serve multiple tenants from their Datacenters. However, more guidance is required on how to manage multi-tenancy, challenges, sync issues in low bandwidth scenarios, and any other guidance will be extremely helpful. With storage costs declining, Hosters and Service Providers are eager to provide these services to customers thereby reducing capital expenses for their customers

  20. Simple change the size of the system partition

    Forever you Need third Party Tools too easy enlarge or reduze the size of the System Partition. I think it`s time too integrate this in a easy way into the Basic Server Disk Management. (Also if there is no space next to the System Partition)
