  1. [RDS] Don't forget about RDS managment

    You should of course implement all MMC consoles in Honolulu but please don't forget RDS management.

    I hope in few years this will be better than IDEAL Administration software.

  2. [Installation] Domain Controller

    I do not see a reason why installing is not possible on a domain controller. I have a single Windows Server 2016 running that has the essentials role enabled and it would be nice to manage this one through the new web interface.

  3. [Remote Desktop] On Remote desktop replace "Disconnect" with "Sign Out"

    I saw that in Remote desktop connection I have options for press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and Disconnect. I am sure, that a lot of administrators are always using Disconnect for end their sessions and I am also sure, that would be better to use Sign Out. For this reason I propose to replace Disconnect with Sign Out. Is more secure and better for all administrators.

  7. [Firewall] Windows Firewall - Show active rules

    Provide (missing) view to display the current/active Windows Firewall rules. (On par with the "Monitoring" node in the Windows Firewall MMC snapin).

    The view must include "SourceType" to show the origin of a Windows Firewall Rule (specific Group Policy vs Local setting).

    Would like to be able to toggle the status for the firewall. Right now I can see whether the firewall is enabled/disabled for each profile, but I can't actually change that setting. I also can't enable firewall logging from Honolulu

    Servers can currently be added one by one or through importing a list. Why can't Honolulu scan AD or have an API call that allows a server to be added?

  10. [Connections] ability to customize the columns and see more information at a glance

    I would like to be able to add more columns to see more details about my Servers or Workstations. For example, Operating system would be handy and version of WMF running. IP address could be handy. Also, it would be nice to know which devices are online or offline.

  11. [Virtual Switches] Show More Information for Physical Adapter Selection

    Creating/editing a virtual switch currently shows the adapter's description, which is often not useful for adapter selection.
    Show the Name field, at least. Perhaps also MAC and link speed.
