  1. 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.

  2. Support CAA records in nslookup

    The nslookup command line tool should support CAA (id=257) DNS resource record types. Bonus points for teaching Resolve-DnsName about this type as well. Super bonus points for supporting and rendering arbitrary record types: just print the data in a side-by-side hex/ASCII view. This way I can view newer record types without needing an OS update.

  3. Fix -WhatIf, -Verbose, and -ErrorAction support in the DnsServer PowerShell module

    The new cmdlets for DNS policies in particular have inconsistent and downright broken support for -WhatIf and -Verbose.

    Example:

    Add-DnsServerClientSubnet -cn MyDC -Name 'Whatever' -IPv4Subnet 10.0.0.0/32

    That works if you explicitly add -WhatIf. But if I make the call inside an advanced function that SupportsShouldProcess and call the outer function with -WhatIf, the preference will NOT carry over. In order to do that, I have to use -WhatIf:$WhatIfPreference.

    The same is true with -Verbose, having to use -Verbose:$VerbosePreference because it won't inherit it.

    This is true on the cmdlets for:
    - Client Subnets
    - Zone Scopes
    - Query Reoslution Policies

  4. DNS: Application high availability

    Hello,

    On your site "What's new in DNS Server in Windows Server 2016" is written that there will be a new feature called "DNS Policies", which can be used for "Application high availability". But i can't find this feature, which allows me to redirect clients to the healthiest endpoint like a failover-cluster. I'm not looking for a loadbalancer.

    Other People are looking too for this Feature and some documentation, when will it be available?

    This feature would be great for applications like ADFS and so on.

  5. DnsServer Module cmdlets need a credential parameter

    It would be extremely useful if the cmdlets in the DnsServer module had the credential parameter. It's a lot easier to provide the credentials in a variable versus having to wrap the cmdlet in a script block every time you want to run it with different credentials.

  6. 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!

  7. 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…

  8. Move the GlobalBlocklist to the ADS

    Everytime you set up a new DC with DNS (integrated DNS Zones) you have to remember to clear the GlobalBlocklist in the Registry (when using wpad and isatap). If you set up new DC everytime a new OS is live, you have to remember for this every ~ 3 years. Please move the GlobalBlocklist to a Paramter in the integrated zones, so that every DNS Server with this zone get a real "Global" Blocklist. Or, at least, make the Blocklist visible in the mmc. Would make the search for the misconfiguration a lot faster.

  9. Provide logging around DNS record aging

    It would be nice to have DNS logging around what records would be scavenged if scavenging was turned on.

    Add a log (or easy PowerShell way) to pull the records that would be scavenged, following the built-in algorithm that DNS uses (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc959277.aspx)
