  3. Credentials 'Manage as' not saved

    Credentials "Manage as" which are entered at a connection are not saved. When I restart the session to WAC, the credentials must be entered again.
    I use WAC from my client computer, which connects to the Gateway. I would like to use my admin account for connecting to the machines. WAC always uses my personal non-admin account per default.

  4. Powershell and RDP SSO for Gateway Mode

    Currently when deploying Windows Admin Center in Gateway Mode, Extension tools such as Powershell and RDP do no support SSO experience(even with RBCD). Manual Authentication is a Must to get access to this Tools. This becomes a Show stopper when using Smart Card Authentication, as password prompt doesn't offer Smartcard login.

    One would expect SSO for all tools however the expected behavior should be a Prompt that supports Smart based based login instead of Password.

    Can this be added as a feature update?

  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. [Intune] 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..

  8. show Windows Update on Dashboard

    It will be a good Idea to select more than one server and have it search for updates.. instead of one by one.. Once a month I have to spend hours just on waiting for the servers to apply the updates.. it will be a great Idea to centralize that...

  9. [RD] [Credential Format] Credentials are not valid. Verify the username and password are correct and try to reconnect.

    I entered the correct username and password, but Ti kept prompting me that my credentials were wrong. I could enter the management interface of Center. I could not enter the remote desktop in the management interface.

  10. WAC extension bloatware: Azure Monitor

    The Azure Monitor extension cannot be uninstalled.
    I want to have a way to remove or hide this extension.
    Even after removing all extensions:
    PS C:> (Get-Extension -GatewayEndpoint 'https://wac.lab.io' | Where {$_.Status -eq 'Installed'}).Count
    0
    PS C:>
    The Azure Monitor extension persists, as shown in the attachment.

  11. WAC 1910 - Cluster Create Function is not enabling RDMA on NetAdapter or VmNetAdapter

    WAC 1910 in Gateway Mode.
    Cluster Creation Function is not enabling RDMA on an RDMA capable NIC, or the VNIC when using the Wizard.
    Tested with Datacenter 2019 v1910 and 10Gb Chelsio T520 NICs latest drivers.
    The SET vswitch is created for storage, but SMBx vNIC RDMA was not enabled.

  12. Enable CSV Cache and View CSV Cache Performance Dashboard

    Currently we have to enable CSV caching via PowerShell which is not a big problem, however it would be great if this could be enabled in the WAC GUI along with stats in dashboard form that demonstrate the memory consumed by VM's, by the Hypervisor and what is available to enable as CSV Cache. Also if memory demands increase, due to added VM's or live migration, an indication that allocated CSV cache memory has been reduced.

  13. [Multi-Machine] [Virtual Machines] windows updates for VMs

    I can do the windows updates for each machine listed in my long list of servers but if I go to my HyperV server and see the list of VM's, I would like to be able to run windows update against those machines without connecting RDP into each VM and then running Windows Update

  15. why is admin center download in the eval section??????

    Why is Admin Center now an eval download??? This should be a direct download, you should want the community to download it and use it!! I just got done presenting to one of my hosting channels and told people to download it and start using it, only to find out you moved it to a server eval page requiring info that leads to a future sales calls. How is this a good decision!!

  16. Performance Monitor WAC

    I like the performance counter in WAC. But I will still use Grafana for these reasons:
    I would like to choose the display unit: change bytes/sec in Gbyte/s for example
    Change the decimal (no decimal for example for reads/sec or write/sec counter)
    On the reports, have thresholds with different colors

  17. Save Performance Monitor captures in WAC

    I stopped by the Windows Admin Center booth at Ignite and discovered the new Performance Monitor in WAC is not capable of capturing performance data to a file. If there is a need to capture data over time then you need to revert back to the "old" Performance Monitor. It would be nice to have this capability added to the new Performance Monitor in WAC. Hopefully this is already on the road map but if not hopefully it will find its way there.

  18. 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…

  19. Windows Admin Center CSV Capacity

    Currently, when adding a regular Failover Cluster - you are not able to see the used capacity column unless you click on each CSV. It would be great to have used and total capacity columns for CSVs.

  20. 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.
