  2. Best Practises Analyzer (BPA) for Nano Server

    We would like to be able to run Best Practises Analyzer (BPA) using PowerShell. Is it possible to have Nano Server BPA Model for WebServer, Hyper-V and FileServices without ServerManager module dependency?

    Example:
    Get-BPAModel Model_ID | Invoke-BPAModel

    This is very crucial for Server Administrator to validate the server condition is compliant to Microsoft's Best Practises.

  3. NanoServer GPUs

    I really like NanoServer and all the benefits of reducing the OS footprint; however I'm wondering given that NanoServer has no UI could the OS benefit from using the compute power of the GPU; and weather this on the roadmap or under consideration?

  4. Minimal Server Interface Mode in Windows Server 2016

    A minimal server interface mode in Windows Server 2016.

    Similar to what was available in Windows Server 2012 R2.

    This assisted in reducing the attack surface on the Server and also allowed administrator to switch back to Full Gui mode if needed.

  5. Make a list of ReverseForwarders compatibility tools

    NGinx, Node(ok, is running), Varnish, ElasticSearch, Erlang, RabbitMQ, Redis...
    Which of these services and other common tools/services can be run on Nano Server?

    We need a simple compatibility list.

  7. Highlight "Azure" for "Using Windows PowerShell remoting" section of Getting Started doc

    Side Note: Spinning up a Nano Server TP4 in Azure is showing an active "Connect" button for the VM in the Azure Portal UI, which would ordinarily download a useful RDP file. Since the server doesn't support RDP, this is useless and misleading. That button should be disabled for Nano Server Azure VM's.

    RE: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt126167.aspx

    Section: "Using Windows PowerShell remoting"

    I recommend that you highlight that these are the steps that should be followed for someone trying to access an Azure Nano Server VM with local PowerShell only. It wasn't clear from the doc (and other docs online) that this…
