  2. Add the ability to view previous PerfMon data captures

    The latest Windows Admin Center includes the ability to capture PerfMon data, but doesn't include the ability to upload and view existing data with a BLG or CSV through a saved Workspace.

    Over the years, my company has developed dozens of tools to automatically parse and allow for the slicing and dicing of historical PerfMon data saved as BLGs and CSVs to help troubleshoot customer environments. Allowing organizations to upload a BLG or CSV file that in turn displays the data using a Workspace template released by my company would save our organization significant time and help improve Windows Server…

  3. [Bug] In Windows Admin Center Preview 1908, if you install the Pure Storage Preview Plugin, it breaks the "Add" server functionality etc.

    [Bug] In Windows Admin Center Preview 1908, if you install the Pure Storage Preview Plugin, it breaks the "Add" server functionality etc. Removing the plugin restores the affected functionality. Installing other plugins doesn't affect console functionality that I have seen.

  4. [Storage] Better documentation for Storage Replica Support

    Followed instructions here. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-replica/server-to-server-storage-replication

    And Storage Replica keeps telling me to "Install the Remote Server Administration Tools on this PC and then Restart"

  5. 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"

  6. [Remote Desktop] As a remote admin, have the ability to see the screen of the currently logged-on user-the end user's actual active session

    Remotely being able to see what the local end-user is seeing on his/her local screen is incredibly important when troubleshooting activities occur, especially in air-gapped industrial control systems. There are commercial applications that allow this (i.e., Dameware, etc.), but it would be a VERY useful benefit if this capability was a configurable capability in Windows itself.

  7. Add BMC link to summary

    Add BMC link to server summary page. If a computer does not come back up after rebooting I am unable to connect to access the BMC link for Dell computers which is on the Overview page or the Dell Openmanage link at the bottom of the menu. I then have to refer to other documents to get the BMC IP to connect to the virtual console which makes it cumbersome.

  8. 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.

  9. Danish "Regional format"

    It would be awesome if the Language Region followed my choice of settings in Windows. I'd like English language interface with Danish Regional format - the latter is unfortunately not supported.

  10. Allow CAU in WAC without Self Updating schedule

    It would be great if I could use the CAU feature in WAC without setting an automatic schedule in the Cluster Self Updating feature.

  11. [Multi-machine] Compare option to compare two servers

    Make a split screen option to compare two servers in one window so that I can have firewall rules or reg entries, etc pulled up on one server and reproduce them on another in one screen. Bonus points if you can select something on one and tell it to replicate itself to the other server.

  15. [New Tool] - IIS Management without Microsoft IIS Administration

    HI WAC Team,

    Recently, a new version was released, 1909 Preview (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/09/17/windows-admin-center-preview-1909/).
    With this version the IIS extension was introduced. But to use this extension the Microsoft IIS Administrator (https://manage.iis.net/get), is required to be installed in all IIS Servers.

    With a new software, we need to be careful with updates and new release,security issues,configuration issues and during the Microsoft IIS Administrator different module are installed on the server like Core.net Libs

    The magic of Windows Admin Center is working pure powershell, basic plug & play, without installation of thirty part software to manage windows features

  18. [UI] Make server search bar/filter available at all times.

    Make server search bar/filter available at all times. Now you always have to go back to the list of servers to search/filter/find a new one. To have the search bar available at all times would be a nice improvement to the UI. This way you could jump straight to the next one without having to go back and starting over from the beginning.

  20. Зависают параметры виртуальной машины при переходе в список жестких дисков если VHD удален

    Зависают параметры виртуальной машины при переходе в список жестких дисков если VHD удален. И из за этого невозможно добавить в список реальный или переименованный VHD после слияния.
