  2. [App] Make Windows Admin Center App like the Azure portal App

    Create an electron app for local desktop installs of Windows Admin Center. The Azure team is now doing this so that you do not need to use the browser. Like the Azure portal app: https://ms.portal.azure.com/App/Welcome

  3. [Versioning] Windows Admin Center Version Numbers not listed

    Programs and Features reports a 1.2.3.4 version number. All the web documentation reports a YYMM version number. There doesn't appear to be a KB listing the translation between the two so there's no way of knowing what version you are actually running. Please either provide a KB or have Programs and Features list the YYMM number.

  4. [Containers] Containers in Service Fabric

    As Service Fabric stops the docker service and runs it as a process, I'm unable to visualize containers that run in Service Fabric clusters, even though docker is accessible.

  7. [New tool] TCP/IP host scanner.

    This tool needs a TCP/IP host scanner built into it. Way to many steps to add a host with of coarse host account request as part of it so you can skip none host based devices such as NAS and switches.

  8. [SMS] Migrate IIS (Internet Information Services 7.0 through 10) via Storage Migration Service

    In reviewing the Storage Migration Service at both MSIgnite this week, as well as in my demo lab, I've noticed that the Storage Migration Service does not touch traditional IIS configurations/workloads. This would be a fantastic value add for places that have done traditional deployment packages to an IIS website. Could this be added to a future build of WAC? We have roughly 100 Windows 2008 R2 servers that could immediately benefit from this feature. Thanks for the consideration!

  9. [Version] How about making the versions consistent?

    You refer to the version as 1809.5 on the web site but the version shown when a personal installs it is 1.1.28771.0

    Why can't Microsoft using consistent versioning schemes????

  10. [Storage] WAC & Virtual Hard Disk Wizard

    To have the Virtual Hard Disk Wizard included in WAC would be very beneficial. Currently, either PS or having to run a separate Hyper V manager to access such facilities.

    Would like to see this implemented.

    Regards

  11. [Azure] [ASR] I want to use "Windows Admin Center" to manage Windows Server 2019 MARS backup" by an existing Azure account.

    I want to use Windows Admin Center to manage Windows Server 2019 MARS backup.
    Therefore, if I try to use an existing Azure account, the following error occurs and cannot be set. If you have installed MARS Agent in the relevant environment, it can be used from the administration tool.
    However, regardless of whether or not the agent is installed, settings cannot be made in Windows Admin Center.


    1. Use your existing Azure account.

    2. Activate Azure AD required when registering to Windows Admin Center

      1. When setting from Windows Admin Center fails with the following error




    Could not retrieve the Microsoft Azure…

  12. [New Tool] [SQL] Add SQL Configuration Manager

    SQL Configuration Manager cannot run on Server Core. Getting the MMC version to connect is difficult. Having the SQL Config Manager in the Admin Center will make it easier to set SQL config settings.

  16. [Bug] [Installed Apps] [W10] non-MSI packaged apps report successful uninstall, but aren't actually uninstalled.

    WAC installed locally on Windows 10 1803 remoting another Windows 10 1803.
    Would be nice if WAC could uninstall all types of apps and not just MSI-packages ones. It shows that uninstall is successful, but it isn't.

    Also update Software center when uninstalling an msi-app so it doesn't look like it's still installed.

  18. [Bug]RDP to Server 2008R2 not working

    There is no "Remote Desktop" tool in left panel, when connecting to Server 2008R2. In settings "Remote Desktop" shows "Don't allow remote connection to this computer", but on target server int is on. Can't allow remote connections thru WAC, because it hangs and never apply changes. Meanwhile remote Powershell works fine.

  19. [Deployment] [gMSA] [Identity] Add connections using gMSA's

    Rather than using individual administrator accounts to add new server connections, I'd like to specify a group managed service account that has admin rights on those servers instead.
