  1. BUG - Renaming a Folder Causes NTFS Permisions to reset

    I just renamed a top level directory on 5 of our file servers. There is 40TB of data across all these servers. Renaming each folder took an abnormally long time, but eventually finished. Come to find out, Windows reset the NTFS permissions on the folder. I did this same operation on two 2008r2 servers and it worked just fine. Windows should not being changing permissions on a simple folder rename

    More Details can be found on this Technet post.

  4. Storage Replica transitive replication

    SR should support A --> B --> C replication, where A is source, B is synchronous copy of A, and C is asynchronous copy of B. All for the same volume.

  5. Remote Wipe Capabilities in Work Folders

    The Remote Wipe feature is only supported with Intune. If all it does is revoke the key and not actually wipe any data, why do we need to purchase and deploy Intune MDM just to access this feature? Work Folders should include a revoke feature without needing Intune. We need way to revoke access to the data when a user reports their laptop or device is stolen. There are tons of sync utilities around that allow us to securely sync a client with server over WAN, but the reason we like Work Folders is because we do not need to…

  7. Simple 2 Node cluster config

    Let me paint this simple scenario: I have two servers, each with local disks attached to a RAID controller. Based on those servers I want to create a highly available, resiliant file server.
    The simple solution would be: Use either Storage Spaces Direct or Storage Replica. Unfortunately both options are not available right now.
    S2D fails a) because of the use of a RAID controller and b) because of the use of only 2 servers.
    Replica fails because I either have no automatic failover (server 2 server mode) or I don't have disks that support persistent reservation (which is required…

  9. Ship RAM Disk with Windows Server

    I would like Windows Server 2016 to ship with an option to install a RAM Drive that can be configured to load as a device driver upon operating system boot.

    This could be used for a variety of reasons, but my primary case is for optimizing SQL Server workloads. (I might that I use a RAM disk with my Windows 8.1 computer for the TEMP and IE TEMP directories, which is a great way of clearing out cookies, malware, etc as I just reboot the computer)

    Use / Business case:
    In earlier versions of SQL Server you were able to…

  14. Inline deduplication

    We use deduplication on volumes used as VTL in System Center DPM and it would beneficial to have at least at deduplication pass done inline to minimize the storage requirement of the volume as the backup is first done undeduped first and then a lot of free space is recuperated once the deduplication job has run.

  15. (Microsoft Suggested Idea) Storage Replica simulated failover

    Is the ability to simulate failover with Storage Replica important to you? In other words, the ability to temporarily create a writable copy of the destination volume - without actually performing a direction switch - and access data on that volume. When done testing, you would then discard the temporary volume. During testing, the real source and destination volumes continue to replicate.

    Keep in mind that this feature may prevent other SR capabilities from being made, due to resourcing. Naturally, if you have *other* features you want in SR that are more important to you, do not vote yes for…

  17. Storage Replica across domains or to non-domain joined hosts

    It would be great if we could expand storage replica so that it works across domains or from a domain joined PC to a non domain joined PC.

  18. Cannot open AIP protected file on WorkFolders App on iOS

    Any MS Office file such as Word, if protected using Azure Information Protection, does not open in WorkFolders iOS App. WorkFolders simply throw error "Cannot open this file. Try opening this file in another app".

    Seems like WorkFolders iOS App does not support Azure Information Protection and hence do not hand over the protected word file to Microsoft Word Application on iOS platform.

    This same feature works fine on Android platform.
    Ideally WorkFolders iOS App should invoke MS Word App and open the .docx files (regardless protected or non-protected).

  19. Can Windows Storage Server Migration Cutover feature move a Domain Controller?

    The New Windows Storage Server Migration Service has a Cutover feature. It will move the network name and address of the old server to the new server. Can this also move a server that is a Domain Controller?

  20. Dedup dedicated or reserved file space

    Dedup should reserve the space needed to successfully run its jobs on the disk so that the disk is never 'too full' to dedup. It would be great if this functioned kind of like page files where an admin could even direct the 'reserved' space to a different dedicated volume.

    Dedup requires a certain amount of 'free' disk space to run. When using dedup on user-facing file shares it never fails that some users will suddenly drop a huge number of files on to the share and then dedup will fail all its jobs due to a lack of free…
