  1. GRE tunnels

    Provide the ability to create GRE Tunnels without RRAS.

    This is helpful for Azure nodes to do things like multicast where it would otherwise not be possible.

  2. 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.

  3. Support DOH/DOT Server

    In line with the announcement that Windows 10 will support DOH, the Windows DNS server should support name resolution using the DOH or DOT protocols.

    This is separate to the DNS server supporting DOH/DOT to upstream DNS servers (be they forwarders or the root DNS servers).

    All DNS traffic from my clients would be encrypted, while maintaining the existing administrative controls.

  5. Conservative RSS Profile assigns 2 CPUs when 1 RSS Queue is chosen

    Hi,

    I'm trying to understand how RSS works and while experimenting, I found out that when Convervative RSS Profile is used with 1 RSS Queue, Indirection Table stay the same, with two processors. Is that correct behavior?

    I'm asking, because when I choose other RSS Profile (for example Closest or ClosestStatic), number of the processors in IndirectionTable always match NumberOfRecaiveQueues.

    Is that mean that I have some bad version of Powershell/Windows/Drivers or is it correct??

    Can anyone help with that?

    I've used Set-NetAdapterRss cmdlet to set things up.

    Name : test0
    InterfaceDescription : Intel(R) Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X550-T2
    Enabled…

  6. DNS records make it easy and fast

    create a new DNS records list as MAC OS has it to be easy to manage and access

    PC name IP and DNS record

    Server 1 | 192.. | A
    Server 2 | 192.. | MX

    on the IIS 7 have this option to DNS records for easy management

    Windows Server should only be as Server using the right tools for Server and not work as wndows desktop

    make the Windows Server just as Server and run the programms need

    windows desktop as desktop only and not with option to run as server

  8. Support SSHFP records in Windows DNS Server and its admin tools

    Since Windows now supports OpenSSH natively, as well as other clients/servers on the same network, supporting this standard for server authentication seems like an obvious win.

  9. [Bug] Server 2019, firewall logging injects NULL bytes into file "pfirewall.log"

    When firewall logging is activated, the resulting "pfirewall.log" gets a string of about 955,868 null bytes inserted into it. The actual log line entries are there, along with 900K of null's. OS seems to fixated on making a minimum size file. Big bug somewhere.

  10. RE-code the DFACS utility

    RE-code the released DHCP Failover Auto Config Sync (DFACS) utility. We were considering an implementation of it but scrapped the idea hearing of all the alleged scary issues in the comments e.g. memory consumption, deletion of scopes, issues with reservations, etc. The result of implementing the tool should mitigate config drift, not end up causing other larger issues!

    Please do update me if a new build fixing the reported issues.

  12. DHCP Failover ist not possible between different Languages.

    Dear Microsoft,

    it's not possible to Setup a DHCP Failover between two Server (w2k12 R2) with different languages in my case English and german.

    The Error Code 20044 comes up because of the differenet naming of the user and/or vendor classes.

    I think this should be fixed.

    Kind regards,
    Benedikt Ochs

  13. Make Direct Access to work also User based

    "Direct Access" which unfortunately only works for domain joined clients (I dont get it why u made this fantastic technology computer based and not also user based which would also work for non domain joined computers)

    Giving customers access to our fileshares via https would be easy then.
    Currently almost all products from Microsoft are ready to deploy to external users via https the only thing left is classic filesharing.

    I know u want customers to use ur cloud services, but there are also a lot of companys which could not use them for compliance reasons, so please dont forget…

  14. Send network configuration scripts on the hyperV hosts before running it

    When doing modifications on virtual network equipment in SCVMM, we often lose connectivity because a switch that allowed connection is deleted before another one is created. The problem is that scripts regarding network configuration are executed remotely, wich means that we’ll lose connectivity at some point and won't be able to complete the script. We believe it would be safer to send the script entirely to the hosts before executing it, so they could complete it without any remote help and reconnect when it has been executed.

  15. DirectAccess over Native IPv6 Internet

    I read somewhere that DirectAccess ALWAYS uses transition technologies (Teredo,6 to 4, IPHTTPS) for client to DA connection, EVEN WHEN both DA server and DA client have native IPv6 public addresses.

    in case it is true, I believe we should let the native IPv6 be the 1st priority of the connection security rules rather than the Tunneled ones.
