  2. Enable DHCP to send unrequested options.

    I thought I had posted this, but apparently not.
    Have the ability to force DHCP options down to a client. Right now it seems that the DHCP server only sends options back that are requested by the client. Having the ability to send non-requested options would be awesome. Not so much for Windows clients, but for Mac clients. The Netboot there doesn't request options 66 and 67. But if you send them down (such as the Mac Servers do), then it can boot from those options. If this were implemented, LOTS of Mac Admins would be very happy.

  3. Automatic Sync DHCP Failover Relationships

    Without the need to deploy IPAM, offer an option to automatically sync DHCP failover relationships to keep the servers databases in sync. Thru the actions of admins, several events are executed and logged. It would be great to somehow trigger off the various events a synchronization rather than a manual effort as it is today.

  4. Override teming mode for management OS virtual NICs

    It would be greate, if we can tell for this particular vNIC to send/receive traffic trough one NIC and not to perform loadbalancing or failover. If you've got only 2 NIC adapters, you can't properly install hyper-V host with iSCSI (for iSCSI Multipath I/O is better option, than teaming), SMB v3 also would benefit (we than could keep traffic not crossing switches or stacking (IRF/MLAG) connection). Another option could be partition HW NIC using SR IOV technology, and bring VF to management OS.

  5. Introduce Linux like SO_TimeStamp socket option in networking API

    Most of the network cards support High Precision clock synchronized with PTP protocol. In windows server introduce Linux like SO_TimeStamp set socket option to receive timestamp along with receiving packet. This will be used to identify network latency and a means to get high precision time stamp.

  6. Keep Network Teams intact after upgrade

    After in-place upgrading Srv2016 Build 10154 to build 10158 the network teams needed to be reconfigured. All teams disappeared, hopefully this will be fixed in the following updates. Rebuilding the teams isn't fun..

  7. Include SNMPv2/v3 / 64bit counters to Windows Server 2016

    As we all know all Windows Servers from 2000 to 2012 R2 only support 32bit counters for SNMP. Because of this if you run diagnostics on high speed interfaces / virtual interfaces like 1GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, 100GbE counters will go over it's 32bit value and reset, causing MRTG graphs and other SNMP monitoring utilities to report false values. So my idea is that microsoft implements 64bit counters in SNMP implementation and finally adds support for 64bit SNMP.
    My 7 year old 3com switch supports 64bit SNMP counters but the latest Windows 2012 R2 does not.

  8. Allow setting an IP-Alias while still on DHCP with your adapter

    On Linux it is possible to define an IP-Alias for your ethernet card, even whil you have a dynamic IP on your adapter. But quite often I have to configure fresh network devices and have to give my adapter other IP adressses. Please give me that possibility.

  10. Give more control for NIC teaming

    In Active/Passive NIC teaming configuration, there could be more control for failback, that when active NIC fails and failover happens, the team did not failback to previously (default) active NIC for specified amount of time.

  11. Provide support for changing LACP timer value to long/slow for NIC teams

    If you use native support for NIC teaming, LACP teams use a short/fast timer. This is an issue if you the team is connected to a Cisco Nexus and want to use In-Service Software Upgrades because ISSU requires slow/long timers.

  12. Fix DNS management console sorting bug

    Come on, after 8 years you have still not fixed this bug?
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/f1b686ad-824f-4c16-a66c-f9470a2dfa6d/2008-dns-ip-address-sorting-issue
    And NO, this is neither MMC nor regional settings problem, since DHCP management console sorts the same (IP addresses) values CORRECTLY.
    And NO, exporting to Excel is NOT an option!
    Come on grow up and get serious, even in Srv 2K and 2K3 it worked like charm!

  13. Improve DNS logging options

    Allow us to put a filter in to log for specific lookups. We should be able to specify a list of names, a list of domains. We will at times have a misbehaving client or piece of malware, or we have an old domain or host and we'd like to know what's still using it. Being able to create a targeted log for these types of situations would often come in handy. As it is, we end up needing to run a network capture on all our domain controllers. The ability to use a Powershell or dnscmd command to add…

  14. Introduce a "debug" mode to the TCP/IP stack

    As this would be reasonably impactful of performance on busy servers, it would have to be designed for debug situations only. The idea is that we have a log specifically for TCP/IP debugging. In it would be written things like TCP session establishment, connection resets, adapter events, tcp window size change events, offload status, rss events, route changes, and a big one, MTU negotiation/black hole router events.

  15. Bring load balancing to windows server!

    Many modern HTTP applications are deployed in enterprises with 3rd party load balancers running in layer 7 mode. I have yet to find a solution which runs on windows. NLB is often difficult to deploy because of incompatibilities with switches/hypervisors (some improvement with IGMP multicast), and does not operate in layer 7.

    IIS AAR can do layer 7 but does not do high availability without combining with NLB

  16. Support for Layer 2 sharing between physical and NVGRE networks

    Not supporting Layer 2 network between physical and NVGRE networks is one of the blockers for Network Virtualization adoption.
