  1. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Linux Command Set

    Like Azure has, it would be great if there was a linux/UNIX command line set. Since Nano Server is essentially like have Azure locally on our boxes, being able to control it from non-Windows boxes would be ideal, especially given how so many businesses has mixed-client environments.

  6. official etcd support and integration

    etcd already runs on windows. this should be targeted as a replacement for the windows registry, active directory store, and whatnot.

  8. Diskless Nano Server (PXE Boot)

    Given how small Nano Server is, it could potentially fully fit in RAM allowing diskless scenarios (boot over PXE) where a small chunk of system persistent data (i.e. Certificate Store, local secrets, logs, etc.) can be stored on a remote VHDX accessed over the network. That could make the OS run faster and become more resilient to system storage issues. Also it could allow moving the OS instance from one server to another (by reassigning the boot image to another MAC on PXE), in case of a hardware failure.

  10. Nano server setup wizard / cmdlets

    Setting up nano server is harder than it should be. Downloading a 3rd party scripts that you have to patch and fiddle around with is more trouble than most people are willing to deal with.

    Please add a setup experience in server 2016 to create a nano image (not to nano itself) that allows you to add drivers and packages as well as setting up remoting and domain join blobs and create a vhdx file. This process should also be scriptable in powershell without additional downloads

  11. Get a file downloader and bittorrent working on Nano

    This actually has nothing to do with the server itself. But I plan to install Nano Server on my aging MicroServer at home, and if I could some how install a downloader and a torrent client, that will be all I need from it (aside from PHP, MySQL, Node and MongoDB)

  13. nCurses-like library for Windows / Nano Server

    For a long time, open source operating systems have offered an nCurses library, which enables developers to build "text GUIs." With the continuing trend of headless management of the Microsoft Server platform, it would be awesome to see a similar type of functionality made available to PowerShell and C# developers.

    Having this capability would enable developers to build end-user, administrative and monitoring applications that can be executed inside a Windows Remote Management (WinRM) session.
