  1. If the keywords specified in the cluster validation are localized, it will guess that Cluster Creation will not work.

    In Windows Admin Center 1910.2, I installed Cluster Creation 1.2.0 and confirmed creation of Classic Failover Cluster.
    The Japanese version of Windows Server 2019 cannot perform cluster validation.
    The English version of Windows Server 2019 can perform cluster validation.
    If the keywords specified in the cluster validation are localized, it will guess that Cluster Creation will not work.

  2. WAC Performance Monitor-Change Units

    I would like to be able to change units and/or have an option to auto-scale units. An example would be network adapter bandwidth which is fixed to Bytes/sec. I would like the option to change this to bits or bytes with kilo, mega, giga scales.

  5. [WAC] Show reboot pending on server connections page

    Like the server manager, allow to see directly in the list view (server connections) if a machine needs a reboot.
    Click through every server to get the information in the server overview is not helpful.
    If the connections page would also show if the machine is online/reachable would also be helpful!

  7. Hostnames changing

    Our one main issue is, the hostnames constantly change in WAC. Once you connect to a server, WAC will then show the correct hostname again. But then next time you connect to WAC, the hostname may be wrong again. For example, we have servers named like "prod-01-w19-server1", "prod-01-w19-server2", etc. Sometimes WAC will incorrectly show hostname for server1 as server2. Once we connect to server1, then it will show the correct hostname again, for awhile.

    This is in AWS, managing 2019 servers. I'm assuming this is unique to our environment, as I don't see any other posts about this.

  8. After-install customisations seem impossible. Suggestions.

    I want to be able to change the listening port after installing WAC.
    Also, the "WinRM only over HTTPS" setting should be able to change after installing too.
    Also, I would like to be able to change the WAC web-server certificate to one of my own.
    Also, when using WAC locally, I want an option for whether it should open a new browser page when I start it. I find it really annoying when it opens a new page on a browser, because it always chooses the wrong browser. :(
    You could instead put an option on the system tray's…

  9. Add a change log for the Server

    Keep track of changes performed on a server in automated or manual way. This is for small businesses as bigger ones have a commercial or self created solution.
    Automated would be tracking user changes and logging it somewhere (just like TMG 2010 did for changes to the firewall rules for instance)
    Manual would be by providing a Change Log space on the front page or on the left side as a input item.

  13. [Cluster Creation preview] [BUG] [BLOCKER] creating a failover cluster fails at "renaming nic"

    tested 1910.2
    try to create a failover cluster e.g. for Hyper-V
    The wizard works great at the beginning but has serious issues if it does not find network adapters to configure.(Webpage loads eternally or hangs). Workaround reload: WAC Cluster Creation

    If there are network adapters it does want rename them (no option to skip this) and fails at this step.

    From this part on you cannot use the wizard anymore and need to fall back to Failover Cluster Management mmc.

  15. [Connection list] Add right click open in a new tab

    in Addition to this not so obvious feature
    https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295071-management-tools/suggestions/34322546--connection-list-open-connections-in-new-browser

    please add ability to right click a connection to open a server in a new tab.

    The implemented behaviour above is not so common for Windows / Browsers.

  16. [Network] Ability to manage protocols / lmhost / Netbios over TCP/IP

    it took me some time to understand how to enable and disable protocols, e.g. disable IPv4 or IPv6 via Powershell with Get-NetAdapterBinding

    Please add these to Network view
    Curently I am missing the following


    • bind unbind protocols

    • enable / disable LMhosts (security)

    • enable / disable Netbios over TCP/IP (security)

  17. [Firewall] Add ability to manage allowed subnets

    Please add the ability to not only add firewall rules but also to specify the allowed subnets. This currently only possible with Powershell on Server Core and needs a lot of care as it is an array variable.

    Usecase:
    Want to add exclusions for SQL Server that needs to be accessed from other VLANs.

  18. [Devices] Add ability to show inactive devices / deactivate / activate / uninstall devices

    it should be possible to
    - deactivate devices
    - activate devices
    - remove devices - optionally with uninstalling drivers

    there is no smooth powershell equivalent available according to Steve Lee from the Powershell team, so we might want to have some cmdlets and bring them into WAC, too

    Get-Pnpdevices is all we have at the moment. That is unfortunate on Server Core in terms of issues with devices.

  19. [Updates] [BUG] the column restart needed always shows "no restart needed"

    affects: 1910.2 and earlier
    How to repro:

    connect to a Server 2016 or 2019 that is not fully patched
    search for updates /WSUS / WuFB or Online

    see that the column always states "no restart needed"

  20. [Virtual Machine] Adding disks options and SCSI Adapter

    When trying to add virtual disk there are a lot of missing options.
    Please add the following crucial options


    • ability to choose for dynamic or fixed or shared disk

    • ability to add SCSI controller in this wizard, as some disks shall have own SCSI controllers not sharing the one of the default (OS disk)
