  1. French: changer interface

    Mettre une interface optionnel dans l'accueil afin de pouvoir voir l'étatt des machines directement sans se connecter dessus, voir grossomodo la même chose que "vue d'ensemble" mais en direct pour toutes les machines et de manière plus compressée.

  2. [Container] run docker.exe in hidden console window

    Console window (docker.exe) pops up multiple times when using Containers extension.

    I am using Windows Admin Center in Windows 10. Windows Admin Center runs on my administrator account.

    AFAIK it is possible to run such commands in hidden console window.

    I could not attach video file to post because 500 error. Will put in OneDrive.

  3. [Bug] Browse option not opening the Destination Server when moving a VM.

    When moving a VM from one Hyper-V Server to another, if you click "Browse" to specify the destination folder where the VM is going, WAC opens the Source server instead.
    This can easily recreated by setting up two 2019 Servers with Hyper-V, try to move one VM to another using WAC Move option, and click Browse... This will take you to the Source server instead of the Destination.

  5. [Bug] Actually implement Windows 10 node management. It literally does not work currently

    Although the documentation claims it does, Windows Admin Center literally does NOT work for managing Windows 10 nodes. At all. It's not that the functionality is partially broken; literally nothing works.

    First of all, you can't even connect to a node, and the documentation doesn't provide any detailed instructions how to, either.

    Worse, it's obvious the development team doesn't care. This issue has been reported over a month ago on TechCommunity with zero responses: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-admin-center/getting-error-when-trying-to-manage-local-pc-with-windows-admin/m-p/1145011

    Any ideas? Considering that stuff like Cockpit works across nearly all Linux distros, this is pretty pathetic from the Microsoft side of things.

  7. [bug]? windows 1903 update

    Ever since an upgrade to windows 1093 Windows Admin Centre will not run. The browser (the new Edge in this case) return "You are not authorized to view this page. If you recently updated Windows Admin Center, you may need to restart your browser, and then refresh the page." but restarting the browser does not help. Neither did a reboot or uninstalling and reinstalling Windows Admin Center

  11. [Overview] How do you manually add tools for Roles and Features that Windows Admin Center didnt install?

    Make tools for Roles available to add if the role is installed already. Admin center only seems to install tools for roles it installs. I have Hyper-v host that I cant seem to get the management tools available in Admin center.

  13. [Virtual Machines] Resizing your browser window causes the VM Connect page to slow to a crawl.

    When connected to a Hyper-V virtual machine through the Admin Center, any time you resize the browser window, the connection stops responding to inputs, and only updates a few frames every ~15seconds.

    In fact, that entire browser tab slows down.
    The only way to recover fully is to close the tab and restart the Admin Center in a new one.

  18. [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!

  20. 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.
