  1. [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.

  13. [New tool] Hardware overview/inventarisation

    Since in Honolulu we have many ways to check some interesting stuff in modern way, why not do a step further? Allow as (finally) to generate modern-looking hardware report about hardware of selected servers (and PCs since v1711). CPU models, clocks, physical and virtual cores, memory generation, clock, size and module names, GPUs, network info, SAN info, local HDD/SSD/NVMe info. All in one operable and exportable (to XML or XLSX) format.

  15. [MSI] Overwriting TrustedHosts list value shouldn't happen

    If we allow Honolulu installation to modify the TrustedHosts list, it is set to '' and old value is overwritten. That's a bad practice. The user is not warned that old value will be removed. Also, '' means "I trust all computers" and many users will be probably unaware of security impact of that setting.
