  1. [Remote Desktop] As a remote admin, have the ability to see the screen of the currently logged-on user-the end user's actual active session

    Remotely being able to see what the local end-user is seeing on his/her local screen is incredibly important when troubleshooting activities occur, especially in air-gapped industrial control systems. There are commercial applications that allow this (i.e., Dameware, etc.), but it would be a VERY useful benefit if this capability was a configurable capability in Windows itself.

  2. WAC Installation with Multiple NICs

    Hi,

    I am using WindowsAdminCenterPreview1909 and When Installing WAC on a server with 2 NICs, 443 port is not listening locally. if we remove One NIC and do an installation with another NIC , than it works and also if i add 2nd NIC works. But it would be really great if we could fix the installation when the WAC server have 2 NICs

  4. Scheduled tasks do not correctly display recurring triggers in admin center.

    Scheduled tasks do not correctly show recurring triggers or allow you to configure with the same settings you can within the OS.

    For example we have a task that recurs every hour indefinitely after starting at boot. Admin center only shows a one time trigger of AtStartup. The configuration also only allows a few predefined times for repeating the task as well as for how long it can run.

    This needs to be updated in order to be able to properly view and manage scheduled tasks.

  5. Would be great to have a Server 2019 core VM with preinstalled WAC

    Installing Server 2019 Core and having to install WAC using PS is time consuming. Better to deploy a preconfigured VM to already existing infrastructure and do a minimal configuration via PS. Greater will be to have WAC as preconfigured container / docker from official source!

  7. Manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension

    Ability to manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension. The current container extension only allows management of containers on an individual server. It would be good to manage containers in a Docker Swarm, services, secrets etc.

  8. Storage Replica: show percentage or amount of data replicated/to be replicated

    When looking at the SR Partnership it is not straightforward to see whether all data has been replicated or how much data is still outstanding, waiting to be replicated. The "Journal Count" gives an idea, but having a percentage or actual amount would be nice.

  9. [Bug] In Windows Admin Center Preview 1908, if you install the Pure Storage Preview Plugin, it breaks the "Add" server functionality etc.

    [Bug] In Windows Admin Center Preview 1908, if you install the Pure Storage Preview Plugin, it breaks the "Add" server functionality etc. Removing the plugin restores the affected functionality. Installing other plugins doesn't affect console functionality that I have seen.

  11. [WAC] [SERVICES] [ISSUE] Services Logon expects a password, not compatible with gMSA

    how to reproduce:
    select a Server 2016 / 2019
    select services
    select a service
    go to log on credentials tab

    Issue:
    it expects a password to assign a user account

    expected behaviour:
    When username contains a $ it should accept the creds without password so to support group managed service accouncts, as recommended for services by Microsoft Security since Server 2012

    Please allow to just enter a username without supplying a password

    Please consider to use Powershell 6 Core internally to use "Set-Service" instead of WMI or CIM objects.

    also refer: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295071-management-tools/suggestions/33637168--services-add-log-on-as-column-to-services-manage

  12. [WAC] [Updates] [Issue] Windows update is very very slow - circling balls galore

    The page Updates is amazingly slow
    - populating the list of updates offered locally via WSUS
    - populating the list of updated offered via WU (Online) - this often stuck
    - progress of installation is not very visible

    Affected WAC version
    all WAC up to 1909

    Affected managed OS:
    and all managed OS from (2012-2019)

    If you compare the speed to local sconfig this is the reference. I know it uses PosH or sorts but needs to get much faster.

  16. Direct Access and VPN role

    Well, I like the Admin Center, but I cannot manage the Direct Access and VPN Role on a 2019 Core server. Hope that's planned and will be available soon.

  18. Feature Request : API required for adding groups to Windows Admin Center

    In order to offer Windows Admin Center ( WAC ) as a product internally at our company, we are investigating whether it is possible to add groups programmatically ( e.g. via a script ) instead of manually as the case now where one has to go via the route Settings > Access > Allowed Groups. We did not find any script or API as part of the WAC installation or any documentation about it anywhere.

    On investigating the calls being made by WAC via the browser console, we discovered the following :

    The call being made to add an allowed…

  19. [Bug] Blank page showed when I choose extension in dropdown list.

    When I upgrade windows admin center to 1210, it will show a blank page when I choose extension.

    And got a 'sme-idle' element in debug mode.

    What's the meanings of 'sme-idle' ? And why it will replace the correct element ?

    Thanks

    Martin
