  1. [UI][Tools List] Reorder Tools

    I'd like to be able to not just favorite but reorder the tools I use most often to the top of the toolbox. and hide others that i don't or wont' use without having to remove the extension as I may use it on one server and never on another.

  2. [Bug] WAC on Azure VM unable to connect to VMs in peered VNETs

    Environment = Hub and Spoke Azure, with Azure Active Directory only. WAC is installed on hub VM and has access to all spoke VMs via peered vnets.

    Issue = A user can RDP or Remote Powershell from the central hub VM to the spoke VMs via the private subnet IP addresses successfully (vnets are peered to allow this). When trying to add VMs via WAC however, the same user is unable to successfully authenticate. All credential fomats (UPN, NetBIOS style, non-domain specified) state as invalid, even when using temporary local credentials on the target server that has local admin rights.…

  6. [Storage] Show LUN information in addition to Windows Disk ID

    This is a drawback that even is in Server Manager.
    The Disk view only shows the Windows Disk ID but it should also show the SCSI LUN ID.

    Why is this important: when assigning new Disks from a storage then you need to have know which LUN is which disk.

    How to implement for you via Powershell in WAC:

    Code

    Get-WmiObject Win32DiskDrive | sort scsibus,scsilogicalunit | ft @{Label=”ScsiBus”;Expression={$.scsibus}}, @{Label=”LUN”;Expression={$.scsilogicalunit}}, @{Label=”Disk Number”;Expression={$.index}}, @{Label=”Size (GB)”;Expression={[Math]::Round($_.size / 1GB, 2)}}, Caption -autosize

    alternatively
    get-wmiobject Win32_DiskDrive | select name, caption, scsibus, scsilogicalunit | sort-object name | ft -autosize -wrap

  12. [Bug] WAC 1910.2 is not allowing gateway host to connect to 2019 AD servers in same subnet

    Hello, I'm excited to start using this tool to manage (and delegate management) of our windows 2019 AD servers. I have it set up on a lab where there are 4 systems, a 2019 gateway server, and 3 2019 servers running active directory. 2DC's are core and 1DC is desktop experience, the gateway is desktop experience and that is where I'm running my browser to connect from. I'm seeing the same problem with connecting to any of the servers. From the start I have received the same error message when trying to connect to one of the systems i've added…

  13. [Virtual Machines] Sort by numerical values

    In Hyper-Converged Cluster Manager and Server Manager when sorting Virtual Machines on numerical columns the sorting is done as text, not the actual values.
    I.e when sorting on Uptime machines with 80 days of uptime will come before one with 9 days of uptime
    or when sorting on Assigned Memory or Memory Demand machines with 4GB will come before one with 500MB

  14. [WAC] Show reboot pending on server connections page

    Like the server manager, allow to see directly in the list view (server connections) if a machine needs a reboot.
    Click through every server to get the information in the server overview is not helpful.
    If the connections page would also show if the machine is online/reachable would also be helpful!

  17. 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?

  20. [Bug] Version 1910.2 can't work with Xen-Vms

    After update to WAC 1910.2 VMs in Xen can't be accessed correctly. See attachments. The server in question is a Remote Desktop Server 2019 with all updates installed. The same issue with Server 2016 and Server 2012 R2. Hardware servers show no problems.

    Before the update Xen-VMs would shown correctly with Xen as Manufacturer.
