  1. Cannot connect to cluster when using WinRM over HTTPS (5986)

    Windows Admin Center is connecting to all our servers using WinRM over HTTPS (TCP 5986).

    In this scenario I cannot connect to any cluster service (error message attached).

    I guess this is due to powershell trying to connect to one of the nodes using cluster name and the server (cluster node) is sending an error because the names don't match.

    Is it possible to fix this somehow?

  4. Hyper-V Virtual Switch VLAN Management - Adding and Editing VLANs

    Currently, one needs to use powershell to tag vlans on virtual switches (unless they have system center), it would be convenient to be able do this via Windows Admin Center

  5. [Roles] Printing Roles prerequisites check misses on Server Core

    Affects: Server SAC, Server 2016/2019 LTSC Core.
    Windows Admin Center 1910.2 or earlier

    Prereq check should add Fileserver as a Role when adding Printserver.

    Printserver cannot work without the print$ share and without Fileserver Role there cannot be $ or any shares.

    Also installing the role should actually create the share print$ because otherwise you run into the following issue by design:

    importing a print server backup is impossible unless adding a shared printer on the target. It will fail to install the driver. Message is irritating but eventlog gives a hint.

    If installing print role and fileserver role in…

  6. Windows Admin Center 1910 and Install-WindowsAdminCenterHA-1907.zip includes Install-WindowsAdminCenterHA.ps1 unable to deploy HA

    Regarding the HA configuration, the following phenomenon has occurred and I feel that I can not deploy it properly.
    - HA configuration deployment is complete if there is no computer object for the cluster. However, the HA configuration cluster resource does not start because the computer object specified in the ClientAccessPoint option has not been created.
    -I create a computer object for the cluster, invalidate it, and deploy the HA configuration, the deployment fails.

    The prepared environment is as follows.
    - Windows Server 2019 English Failover Cluster
    It is a FailOver Cluster consisting of 2 nodes with a shared disk…

  7. [Storage]

    I have tried both ESXI and Hyper-V, it seems there have lots of improvement areas for Hyper-V or WAC just for a simple action: manage storage!

  9. [Feature] More Option in WAC for Hyper-V settings and VM Disk

    There are missing some options in Hyper-V role like


    • no option to enable SR-IOV on network card, DHCP Protection etc.

    • no option to set fixed size VHDX when creating VM

    For me its crucial not because i cant use powershell but because not only i menage server and not everyone know powershell like me.
    Of course you can use RSAT but it wont work if you force WinRM over SSL so i thin is very important to add this to WAC

  10. [Remote Desktop] F5 Refresh

    When using Remote Desktop in Windows Admin Center, I often refresh various screens on the target system I am connected to. However, pressing "F5" is intercepted by the browser which resets the WAC session, and I have to re-establish the connection and reauthenticate. Is this just a habit that I need to break when using WAC, or is there a technical solution be that can be implemented?

  12. DNS extension sorting

    DNS extension should use numerical sorting for IP addresses instead of alphanumeric. For a long list of records, this is really confusing.

  13. Cluster creation extension requires static IPs on trunk NICs

    When creating a hyperconverged cluster, I should not have to enter IPs on the NICs that I intend to use for the virtual switch. Allowing for a DHCP option everywhere an IP might be entered would solve this problem.
