  1. 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.

  2. Allow resizing width of performance monitor counters

    The performance monitor is a great addition to the WAC, however it's annoying that you can only add counters as a "row".

    It would be great to be able to put at least some counters side by side, so that you could, for example, see all processor cores at a glance - at the moment, you'd need to scroll a long way to see the performance of all 64 cores..!

    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.

  4. [Gateway] Save user setting in the service instead of the browser

    Settings for Dark Mode, Console Settings, & other various settings should be saved for each user to the WCFS CSV for clustered setups. This way a user can have the same experience regardless of browser or computer used. Currently these settings are saved to local browser and it is a pain for users to resetup their configurations when switching browsers

  5. It would be nice if File Storage Migration tool would ACTUALLY WORK!!!

    The File Storage Migration tool sounds like an amazingly wonderful tool -- but the reality is that it WILL NOT WORK!!!

    I can't get it to do anything in any browser I've tried except to generate the following error, and keep spinning and spinning and spinning....... ad nauseam!

    Notification details
    Error
    RemoteException: The type 'System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal' is not supported for serialization or deserialization of a dictionary. Keys must be strings.

    5:16:09 AM

    Go to Storage Migration Service.

  6. [Issue] Inverted Graphs in Edge after switching tabs

    When you are in the overview on a system and you switch tabs in the new Edge Dev browser to any other tab then go back to Windows Admin Center all of the graphs are inverted. This occurs for any image including RDP windows.

  9. Direct Access and VPN role

    Well, I like the Admin Center, but I cannot manage the Direct Access and VPN Role on a 2019 Core server. Hope that's planned and will be available soon.

  10. WAC DNS extension should allow delegated permissions

    The DNS extension works pretty good, but apparently it needs the user to have permissions to connect to the server.
    I guess in multiple organizations, DNS permissions have been delegated so admins can work do stuff, without needing actual DA permissions.

  14. WAC Performance Monitor-Change Units

    I would like to be able to change units and/or have an option to auto-scale units. An example would be network adapter bandwidth which is fixed to Bytes/sec. I would like the option to change this to bits or bytes with kilo, mega, giga scales.

  17. WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records and does not recreate

    WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records (even static ones) and does not recreate. Primary and Secondary DNS servers get changed even though an error is thrown in WAC "Couldn't update IPv4 network settings..."

  20. Support non-Microsoft DNS and/or DHCP

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but being able to support some other DNS/DHCP solutions would be amazing. Perhaps this would be more of an avenue for an IPAM solution to add an extension.
