  1. Manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension

    Ability to manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension. The current container extension only allows management of containers on an individual server. It would be good to manage containers in a Docker Swarm, services, secrets etc.

  5. Make setting up "users" and "Admins" easier to understand.

    This is so frustrating! Not user friendly for newbee's.

  8. [Event Viewer] Show dump data

    In the 'Detail' pane the 'Dump Data' is not shown!
    Would be great to also have this information (some Events are useless without)
    If possible also as XML Views like in Event Viewer

    Thanks!

  9. 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..."

  10. 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.

  13. [RD] Make Remote Desktop session/windows larger (maximized within Admin Center window)

    Why are we wasting so much real estate / surface area when I use the Remote Desktop???
    There is a good 2 inches of wasted grey space which simply says "Remote Desktop" with an inch above it, and then your Disconnect and Ctrl-Alt-Del button underneath that.
    Doesn't make sense!!!!
    Move the "Remote Desktop" to the very top and move the 2 buttons to the right of it, so that I simply have a thin top banner.

    All Admins should be able to see new servers added under Connections after I set it up. It appears that it used to be available by adding Shared Connections

  16. Admin Center accessible without authentication

    I have installed WAC on a cloud hosted server. It is possible to access the WAC page without providing any credentials using Chrome 77 (just click sign in without providing any credentials). WAC will show "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” under Settings -> Account.

    Ex: install WAC to listen on port 6000. Then try to access WAC using Chrome 77, pointing to https://contoso.com:6000/. When prompted for credentials, just click sign-in without providing any.

    [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.

  19. [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.

  20. 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.
