  1. 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

  3. Enable-NetLldpAgent not useful

    The Enable-NetLldpAgent , in order to be useful in proper management of a network, should allow setting TLV subtypes.
    Or...........Some options I would prefer:
    set TLV 1 to ID subtype 5 (network address) instead of subtype 4 (MAC address)
    set TLV 2 to ID subtype 5 (interface name) instead of 3 (MAC address)

    include the optional TLV 5 system name

    MAC address is easily obtained by other networking tools. Using this as the information for mandatory TLVs is redundant and useless.

  5. Fix Remote-NetIPAddress to work inside try/catch

    Writing a script to provision a machine - we first remove the IPAddress (and any default gateway), But sometimes there is no address. That;s fine - we just try/catch and move on, liike this:

    Try {

    Remove-NetIPAddress -InterfaceIndex $IfIndex `
    
    -AddressFamily IPv4 `
    -Confirm $false
    }

    Catch {Write-Verbose 'No IPAddresses found'}

    But instead of the nice write-verbose message, we get a fatal error:
    Remove-NetIPAddress : No matching MSFTNetIPAddress objects found by CIM query for instances of the ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFTNetIPAddress class on the CIM server:
    SELECT * FROM MSFT_NetIPAddress WHERE ((IPAddress LIKE 'False')) AND ((InterfaceIndex = 3)) AND ((AddressFamily =…

  6. 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…

  7. 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. Roll back network changes if not confirmed

    If you change network settings, you should be prompted to confirm once the change has finished in the same way as display settings. If not the change is rolled back.

  10. Remove-DhcpServerv4Reservation [IP Address] removes all reservations in the scope, even if the IP is not a scope IP

    When using Remove-DhcpServerv4Reservation and just giving it an IP address without using the option -IPAddress, the cmdlet removes all reservations and turns them into leases.

    This should not happen if the IP address is not a scope IP identifier and should throw an error rather than removing all reservations.

  12. 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)

  13. 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.

  14. add a comments field only visible in the DNS Manager console.

    This would help with DNS Management by having the ability to add notes to static A records and aliases

  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.

  17. Product to Product SPPC (Secure Port & Protocol Comunication) for Server 2017

    Hola,

    (if that clear, read until reach bottom of this post)

    Just like to ask Microsoft if they could make a secure server to server communication protocol, that use say 44443, that is a strip-down TCP that don't use the 3-hand system (more like secure UDP with error correction). That allows each product to talk to each other, using a PKI, or on-prem ADCS certificate.
    But this communication should be base on Control+Data info
    were each product can list all the control-command(standards) that it accepts.

    What is this for, you ask:

    So it will be easy for all products to…

  20. 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.
