  1. open Server Core default Powershell instead of CMD

    you might want change that a Core Server installation (LTSC Core or SAC Core etc) will startup with a powershell instead of a cmd console.
    it would be awesome if one could select the prefered console via sconfig.
    please also support powershell 7.

  5. Make "Lock" the default selection on Ctrl-alt-del screen

    When you are logged on to Server 2016 core console, and press ctrl-alt-del, the default selection is now "change a password". Obviously it should be "Lock" that is the most used selection (like it is already on Server 2016 Desktop Experience). The goal is not to fiddle with arrow keys, but to just press ctrl-alt-del + enter to lock the server screen.

  6. Nano Server as a router

    Configure Nano Server as a full fledged router with routing protocols, NAT and reverse NAT. It would be great for lab environments.

  7. Console Text Editor for Nano and Server Core (and possibly back to Server 2012 Core?)

    We were discussing on GitHub how it would be nice to have a console editor for Nano and Server Core and that it a big contrast to Linux LAMP where there are many choices for this.

    On core, currently some of our teams install Notepad++ because they need at least the ability for both Linux and Unix line endings to parse correctly (notepad fails) because some log files are generated with linux endings (e.g. Cloud Formation local cfn-init/cfn-bootstrap) - a frequent occurrence onsoftware that was ported to Windows from Linux. Just wanted to identify that specific feature as a must…

  8. 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. Nano Server Image Builder issue with Set-ExecutionPolicy

    There is clearly an issue with the way "Nano Server Image Builder" detects and tries to set the execution policy when it has been set by GPO or other means. My GPO setting is "unrestricted", but both New-NanoServerImage PS cmdlet and the aforementioned GUI error: "Error: Set-ExecutionPolicy failed with System.Management.Automation.CmdletInvocationException: Windows PowerShell updated your execution policy successfully, but the setting is overridden by a policy defined at a more specific scope. Due to the override, your shell will retain its current effective execution policy of Unrestricted. Type "Get-ExecutionPolicy -List" to view your execution policy settings.

  13. Nano Server Image Builder: Allow creation of ISO files without the need of a USB drive

    With the Nano Server Image Builder it should be possible to directly create a bootable .iso file or a .wim file (for WDS). This would be much more useful than creating a UBS Stick. Today most of the servers get installed remote over BMC (iLO, iDRAC etc.) and not by plugging in a physical UBS Stick directly to the physical host. Also in virtualized environments, the need of a USB Stick is an unnecessary hurdle. For example, when you are running the Nano Server Image Builder on a virtualized management server you cannot simple plugin in a USB drive. But…

  14. Nanoserver should be run from USB media

    At the moment you can create a vhd of the nanoserver and boot to it instead of booting your normal windows.

    It would be great if we can just put the created nanoserver vhd on the usb-stick/jumpdrive and boot directly from it; without the need for other drives in the server or a working windows installed.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Distributed File System

    Given that Nano Server already has supported for deduplication, ReFS and file sharing, it would be nice to have support for integrating it into DFS so that data can be replicated between Nano Server based file servers that are hosting redundant copies of file shares.

  20. 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
