  1. [Deployment] Windows Admin Center - Allow Install on Domain Controller (Lab Testing)

    Please allow Windows Admin Center to be installed on a domain controller. This is needed for training, lab and testing scenarios. The current MSI package blocks this.

    Yes, it is well understood that extra or unnecessary services should not be installed on domain controllers, no one doubts this, no need to debate or rehash it here -- but this choice should be left up to the org, it should not be an artificial restriction imposed by the Admin Center installer.

  3. [MSI] [Security] [Certificate] Browse for installed certificate

    Hi,
    During "Windows Admin Center" installation, the admin allow to choose to generate a new self-certificate or using existing certificate.
    The Admin should be allowed to review all the current/existing digital certificate directly via the GUI. Using Digital Certificate Thumbprint isn’t the correct/easy way from my point of view.
    -Allow the Admin to replace digital certificate by power shell and UI.
    Thanx

  4. [Bug] I entered a host to manage with a UNC name (starting with \\) and now I cannot remove it from the list

    I am having trouble getting connected to any other host, and it my efforts to try different things, I added a host with \ in front of the name. It's in my list now, I can't connect to it, and I cannot remove it either. Hosts I added without starting with \ (which also don't work) can be removed.

    In this moment there's a big lag when the user insert the server name because every single letter run the discover into the network. To avoid this is better add a button called "Validate" to use only when the full machine name is inserted.

  7. [Multi machine] [Events] Search eventlogs across multiple servers

    The search for eventlogs is great, but I have a situation where I have 4 servers performing the same role (and for reasons made far above my head, we can't log to a database), and I'l like to search all 4 of their eventlogs at once.

  13. [Update] Update Honolulu inside of Honolulu web interface

    Right now we have to go out and download the latest version of Honolulu and install. It would be cool to see an option, maybe inside of settings, to click search for and install updates for Honolulu.

  19. [storage] update-hoststoragecache

    On the storage page, the Disks page should include an option that triggers an Update-HostStorageCache on the on the machine being managed. Simply clicking the refresh circular arrow never does this.

    This is important if Honolulu is being used along side the vSphere management tools to enlarge disks. Without the Update-HostStorageCache, you can never see the new space, and thus can't resize the volume for your customer.
