  1. WDS Services on Nano would be a great thing

    Add the ability to run WDS on Nano this and MDT services would make nano a great appliance for deployment services.

  2. Install Nano Server via Windows Media Install

    Hello everyone.

    I think would be nice have an option to install Nano Server via Windows Media Installation (Windows Install). Right now we have 4 options, Standard/Datacenter with and without GUI, maybe would be great have Nano Server. We can select it, set Hyper-V Nano or Server standalone, next step, select roles to add, edit network setting, computername, workgroup or join domain. Also when you insert Windows Media Install on a running machine (Windows 10 or Server), we could select Nano Server Install and add the hyper-v rol, create nanoserver script, create vm and run. Hope you like the idea…

  3. Nano grows too fast too big with every update

    Nano grows too fast too big with every update. I guess this may be better when patching /DISM offline, but I would like to understand the best way to keep nano small disc footprint

  7. SAC Version Upgrades

    My suggestion would be to make the SAC version a completely rolling version. This would be great especially great for Infrastructure type servers ie: AD, DHCP, DNS, File and Print services. Basically you would install Windows server core once then roll on to the next build much like Microsoft is doing with Windows 10.

  8. Fix failing Windows Server 2016 Cumulative updates

    Need to fix the issue with failing Cumulative updates on Server 2016. Fail almost every time. After several reboots and waiting for hours, some will finally finish but most will fail repeatedly. VERY FRUSTRATING. Virtual VMWare environment (patched) with HP G8 hardware and Server 2016 Std. Ed. This is NOT a problem with my environment. There are thousands of others that are reporting this same issue across MANY blogs and discussion boards. Please...

  9. SCCM support for Nano Server

    Need SCCM support for Nano Servers.

    It will be a great Idea to install SCCM agent on Nano Servers so that we can patch them, collection inventories, install Services in a managed way.

    We already have WUA support for it. Extending it further will help to easy the administration.

  10. Unattend.XML error trapping

    When an error occurs in Unattend.xml (Parsing error) or SetupComplete.CMD exists with no Content, Nano should produce a simple error message indicating an unattend.xml parse error or error in SetupComplete.CMD instead of the Current "Blue Screen of Death"

  11. revised patching approach

    use an active-passive root partition scheme to allow updating the entire OS as a single unit, instead of package by package. In this way the updates are quick, reliable and able to be easily rolled back. It is silly to distribute individual patches for such a small OS.
