  1. Show UBR (i.e. patch version) in Server overview

    On Server 2016 and above the UBR shows the patch level. Currently (1910) only the build number is shown. Please show the UBR also, as this way will be easier to determine the patch level:
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" -Name "UBR"

  2. WAC 1910 - Cluster Create Function is not enabling RDMA on NetAdapter or VmNetAdapter

    WAC 1910 in Gateway Mode.
    Cluster Creation Function is not enabling RDMA on an RDMA capable NIC, or the VNIC when using the Wizard.
    Tested with Datacenter 2019 v1910 and 10Gb Chelsio T520 NICs latest drivers.
    The SET vswitch is created for storage, but SMBx vNIC RDMA was not enabled.

  4. alias

    Would be helpful to have alias ability in the initial "connections" screen (list of added computers), instead of just the computer names only being listed currently.

  6. [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

  11. [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

  14. Unable to Authenticate due to Case Change

    Upon logging into the Windows Admin Center interface to manage servers I note the domain and the user case have changed. When attempting to click on a managed server I am prompted to authenticate with different credentials. I modify the credentials to use the correct font case and I am able to login and manage the servers. I have created screenshots and have attached them.

  15. why is admin center download in the eval section??????

    Why is Admin Center now an eval download??? This should be a direct download, you should want the community to download it and use it!! I just got done presenting to one of my hosting channels and told people to download it and start using it, only to find out you moved it to a server eval page requiring info that leads to a future sales calls. How is this a good decision!!

  16. Storage Migration Service and netBIOS computer name

    We came accross this lovely gotcha when attempting to migrate a Server 2008R2 fileserver using the Storage Migration Service.

    TLDR: if your server name is longer then 15 characters, use the netBIOS name in Storage Migration Service!

    It's amazing how sometimes in the simplest things that trip you up.

    It appears the Storage Migration Service uses the netBIOS computer name and not the computer name or FQDN.

    When we had tested a Enter-PSSession to the FQDN of the server (which is longer than 15 characters), we got a successful connection, but the service would fail. When we did a Enter-PSSession…

  17. [Roles and Features]

    When installing a new role, some kind of status would be helpful. I am trying to install IIS and after I hit the install button, I don't know if it's actually doing anything.
