  1. Make Active Directory Services available for NanoServer

    Given the highly increased security and much less need for patching, it would be great to be able to run AD Domain Controllers on NanoServer

  2. "Core" services

    Nano server would be fantastic for the remote site concept: core services like AD, DNS, DHCP, file / print, proxy. By having more of a "black-box" approach, this can be built and left onsite with little risk to the box.

  8. Provide limited Group Policy support on Nano Server

    Many security settings and other settings are centrally managed and set via Group Policies in domain environments.
    Some core security settings should be managable via Group Policy on Nano Server.
    Examples: User Rights, Audit Policies, Security Options, Security Templates, ...

    I do not consider DSC a valid solution here, as for most ITPro's it requires too much effort to configure/setup.

  9. Support of URL Rewrite 2.0 for IIS on Nano Server

    Will URL Rewrite 2.0 be supported for IIS on Nano Server? This will help to enable Web administrators to create powerful rules to implement URLs that are easier for users to remember and easier for search engines to find.

  10. Support of Application Request Routing (ARR) 3 for IIS on Nano Server

    Will Application Request Routing (ARR) 3 be supported for IIS on Nano Server? This will help to enable Web server administrators, hosting providers, and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to increase Web application scalability and reliability through rule-based routing, client and host name affinity, load balancing of HTTP server requests, and distributed disk caching.

  11. Add support to FSRM to File Server

    Add the File Server Resource Manager feature on Nano to extend the File Server feature. This allows IT Admin to create a very small machine (P or V) configurated as file server good as VM Storage or classic Document Sharing

  12. Add keyboard locale choose menu in Nano recovery mode

    Hello,

    We have only eu-us keyboard in Nano recovery console. It's very difficult for non-english keyboard users to type their passwords.
    Thx.

  16. Install the HttpPlatformHandler by default with an IIS role install

    ASP.NET 5 apps reverse proxy via the HttpPlatformHandler, so the module is going to be required for most vanilla .NET 5 web apps going forward. It would be nice if the HttpPlatformHandler module was installed by default with an IIS install. It would further be helpful if the module were kept up-to-date by whatever OS updating system Nano Server uses.

  17. Support Device Guard and AppLocker

    I'd like the ability to lock down and audit Nano Server equally effectively as my Win 10 hosts. With its dramatically reduced attack surface, Nano Server has the potential to be much more easily defendable assuming it has supported roles to do so.

  20. Support for Isolated User Mode

    Nano Server is already my most favorite Hypervisor, why not give it the same security features as the upcoming Windows Server 2016?
