  1. Allow WAC users to add private/personal tags to shared connections

    Shared connections as added and configured in the Settings | Shared Connections panel are universal - including the tags added to them. Perhaps there could be the ability for users to add their own tags, that only show for themselves. They wouldn't be modifying the underlying shared connection - if everyone wants the tag added, then it would be done through Settings. But a tag added by a user (on the main landing page) would only be visible to them.

  3. [BUG] Import connections crash the WAC

    Upgraded to Windows Admin Center 1910 and imported connections using the Import-Connection powershell module.

    WAC will no longer load with error

  4. Improve connection search to find words across multiple tags

    We are planning on using Shared Connections to automatically create connections all servers across the company (around 2000) for all Admins, and use individual, standardised tags on each connection to identify OS, AD Domain, AD Site, Business Service, etc. If we search for a single word within the tags, all connections that have tags that match the searched word will be displayed. If, however, we enter two separate words that should be found across separate tags, the connection list will not display any connections.

    Improving the connection search to find any word in any tag (or attribute) across the connection…

  5. Sort tags in the Filter panel

    Tags seem to be listed in the 'Filter' panel in the order that they were added to the system - please provide the option to sort them alphabetically. Perhaps also provide a search bar within the 'Filter' panel, to only show matching filters.

  7. Allow resizing width of performance monitor counters

    The performance monitor is a great addition to the WAC, however it's annoying that you can only add counters as a "row".

    It would be great to be able to put at least some counters side by side, so that you could, for example, see all processor cores at a glance - at the moment, you'd need to scroll a long way to see the performance of all 64 cores..!

  8. Vpn

    RRAS admin for Always on VPN management. This should be easy to implement but a great value for customers running rras/vpn. Might also support directaccess.

  9. [Bug][Server][Virtual Machines][VM Settings] I get the prompt that I need to save my settings when I close, even though I already saved them

    After saving the vm settings(and getting the notification that the settings were applied successfully), I still get the prompt that I will lose my settings whenever I try to close out of the settings page.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. [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

  20. [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.
