  2. If it isn't better or equal to legacy MMC tool, THEN DO NOT BOTHER

    If you are trying to replace existing tools, then you MUST AT LEAST provide the SAME or BETTER functionality. There are a myriad of examples, but just for the sake of argument, I can open the original MMC for Active Directory Users and Computers and see far more property details than are exposed in the new Active Directory extension to the Windows Admin Center. A way to make the new extension BETTER than the original MMC would be to expose the Extended Attributes tab when searching for an object. (The legacy tool has this visible only when an AD object…

  4. New VM paths based on VM name (template)

    Our storage logic is to keep each VM with all their files in a single folder, so paths look like:
    //Cluster/storage/VMs/$VMNAME$/Configuration
    //Cluster/storage/VMs/$VMNAME$/VHDs
    //Cluster/storage/VMs/$VMNAME$/Checkpoints
    //Cluster/storage/VMs/$VMNAME$/Paging

    ... where $VMNAME$ is placeholder for, well, VM name, so getting folders like:
    VM-SERVICE-1
    VM-SERVICE-2
    VM-SERVICE-3
    VM-SERVICE-4
    .. etc

    At the moment we have to manually do this for every new VM.

    It would be awesome if at some point WAC's "default paths" settings would support having ability to have such "templating" style of paths. So if VHDs default path is entered with "variable" it auto-magically creates folder for each VM's files.

    Depending on internal organization,…

  7. Store Manage As credentials in Shared Connections

    We not only want to share the connections between operators using the WAC, but also want to store the "manage as" credential per connection or connection group.

    Would be great, if this can be implemented in a secure way in the core of WAC.

  8. Use Alternate credentials to logon

    We are not logged into our workstations with the same credentials needed to manage resources in Admin Center. Each time we have to use the Manage As option in the tool to enter other credentials.
    If the option is provided to logon to Admin Center using alternate credentials will solve this problem.

  11. WAC DNS extension should allow delegated permissions

    The DNS extension works pretty good, but apparently it needs the user to have permissions to connect to the server.
    I guess in multiple organizations, DNS permissions have been delegated so admins can work do stuff, without needing actual DA permissions.

  13. 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.

  15. WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records and does not recreate

    WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records (even static ones) and does not recreate. Primary and Secondary DNS servers get changed even though an error is thrown in WAC "Couldn't update IPv4 network settings..."

  18. Support non-Microsoft DNS and/or DHCP

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but being able to support some other DNS/DHCP solutions would be amazing. Perhaps this would be more of an avenue for an IPAM solution to add an extension.
