  1. Hyper-V replica between on-premises hosts

    Please add the tools to Windows Admin Center to Configure, Manage and Monitor Hyper-V Replica between on-premises Hosts like it is available in Hyper-V Manager today. One of the most asked questions about Hyper-V Replica is how to select the NIC/subnet for replication - if you want to create additional value add a wizard that includes the steps to configure Hyper-V Replica to use a specific NIC port/subnet.

  2. [Feature request] Honolulu should be able to send Email notifications

    Please add a functionality to Honolulu that enables the Honolulu Server to send Email notifications. There should be two options:
    1. a global value to be notified via Email if there are Warnings/Alerts - the should be a option to chose: notify for warnings and alerts and notify only for alerts
    2. it would be great to have an button nearby important configurable values "create alert" and then there should be an option to configure a value and chose if the notification should be send when the running value gets greater or smaller than the configured value

    The SMTP Server…

  3. [Deployment] Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins

    Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins. I find it hard to believe that every admin at a business will need to config this product separately. Why not have a admin group that can see all and have one person doing all the config work.....

  4. Implement a "Restart" button for services

    Currently there's only the option to stop or start a Service in WAC. Please add a "Restart" button. A PowerShell Cmdlet exists for this, so this should be no Problem.

  7. Role Based Access Control for Windows Admin Center

    Have the ability for an admin to add all servers or monitored machines into a back end, and setup role based access control using AD security groups, which mean admins don't need to manually add all servers themselves.

    For example, if a customer has 20 physical machines and 50 VM's, that could be a lot of entries, especially with a team of server technicians. Adding it all once, and then configuring RBAC, means less configuration long term.

  8. Intune Connector for Windows Admin Center

    We are lacking a remote management tool for our Intune Windows Clients. As we are using windows admin center for our on prem clients, it would be great to connect to a windows 10 intune client to get access to eventlog, powershell etc..

  9. [Bug]Too many authentication pop-ups

    Too many authentication pop-ups. Literally making this tool unusable.

    Chrome / Firefox - no luck, still prompted. Unable to test it on Edge because the servers do not have Edge. Edge on user's workstation is again not helpful because any corporate environment is expected to have proxy and bound to websocket issue that is mentioned in known issues.

    So at the end, a tool which is mentioned as "production ready" doesn't seems to be so. At first, very exited about the concept but result is not encouraging.

  13. [WinRM] [Configuration] Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers

    Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers.
    I have deployed certificates and configured WinRM over SSL on all my servers and was planning to use WAC but it seems it can only connect using HTTP/5985 which is really disappointing.

  14. .iso files Should be allowed when creating new VM

    In the "New virtual machine" pane, the "Operating system" section, check the "Install an operating system from an image file (.iso)" then enter a path to an ISO file.
    You get a red error message "(!) .ISO files are not allowed"
    This is, by all means, a bug.
    Please fix.

  16. [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.

  17. Credential management and server grouping

    It would be beneficiary if we can group servers by resources (i.e. DCs, HyperV, Exchange) with pre-defined or custom groups (instead labels).
    Secondly, saving credentials per group would simplify management rather than providing credentials in every session.

  20. [Multi-Machine] Please create consolditated view on the servers in Honolulu console

    Actually its possible to add different servers to Honolulu console to manage them individually. It would be great to have a consolidated view over all these managed servers regarding warnings, alerts, performance and capacity data with a drill down option into the affected server object.
