    In the firewall option, could we have a toggle to show only custom rules?
    Or only enabled rules?

  7. [NEW Tool] Exchange Management

    Exchange Admin Center is already a Web-based tool and Exchange Management Shell already allows for Remote connectivity, I don't see why this would be difficult to include within this project.

    Enjoying the single pane administration of server in my environment. This will definitely be a great and useful tool.

  8. [Installation] Domain Controller

    I do not see a reason why installing is not possible on a domain controller. I have a single Windows Server 2016 running that has the essentials role enabled and it would be nice to manage this one through the new web interface.

  14. [Files] Drive Free space and Total Directory size

    Estimate directory size in Files tool. The column is already present but istead of "-" the progress and then estimation of directory total disk space used by that directory. I know its a huge work but it will be extremly useful. Calculation can be requested by the user clicking on a function that start the job. Also very important is to have a quick overview of total/free disk space when listing for system drives in the 'This PC' section.
    Thanks!

  17. [Connection type] Linux support

    With the release of PowerShell 6 not to far away, please provide the ability to connect to anything running PowerShell core. The community can build functionality using the SDK for anything that is required.

    This shouldn't be restricted to domain machines, over LDAP or AD, so workgroup machines should also be supported.
