  3. Provide bash on Nano (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    It would be great to have the Subsystem for Linux running on Nano as well, similar to how this is implemented in Windows 10.

  10. 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.

  11. Provide remote MMC for all supported roles

    Please provide a remote MMC management for all roles that can be implemented.
    Currently for example IIS cannot be managed via remote MMC, but rather either utilizing PS or appcmd.exe.
    This is not the windows way.

  16. 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.

  17. iSCSI Support

    In SMB environments, I always setup my hypervisors to use commodity NAS devices for shared storage of VMs. It would be great to have iSCSI support added to Nano Server to configure with the Compute role.

  18. Azure AD

    NanoServer should be allowed to join a Domain including an Azure AD from the console.

    The user case would be that in a hybrid-cloud environment NanoServer(s) are running both on premises and in the cloud; with azure active director as the security domain.

  19. vim editor

    It would be great if nano server had a great text editor like vim in it's arsenal. Vim is very well used in Linux and provides very powerful tools for find a replace in text editing copy and pasting etc. Having a text editor like this would definitely be beneficial. Unless you already have something like this already on Windows nano server then fair enough.

  20. increase powershell APIs

    These 2 days I played the nano server on Azure. Currently using the nano server on Azure is just too hard.
    Things I want to do is very simply, deploy my app( core clr), run , copy logs to azure storage.
    I found the wget missing....
    I cannot access azure storage from powershell nor azure cli .....
    while I can finish the job on linux or full windows in 5 minuts
