  1. 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.

  4. Add user selection button for username box

    When I'm using mmc snap-ins every username box has a "browse" button beside it. So I'm able to select a local pc user or an active directory user. It is very hard to remember all user's credentials if there're hundreds of them.

  6. audit permissions on fileshares with Admincenter

    It would be nice to have a way to audit or display the permissions of a fileserver with AdminCenter. Maybe pull the share/NTFS permissions into a PowerBI report so that the permissions can be drilled down on by group or user or directory path.

    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

  10. 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…

  12. version

    Display the full build version of the host machine being managed in the Overview section. Currently, it just displays the major build revision of Win 10. It should also show the minor build revision that reflects the monthly cumulative update. For example, it currently displays 10.0.18362 when it should show 10.0.18362.476.

  13. 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"

  14. Do not automatically show gateway host in "All connections" view

    My gateway server is like a Jump Server, so I don't want it to be compulsorily displayed on the "All connections" view.
    Please give us an option to prevent this default connection item. But still allows the server to be explicitly added by the user or through Shared Connections.

  15. WAC extension bloatware: Azure Monitor

    The Azure Monitor extension cannot be uninstalled.
    I want to have a way to remove or hide this extension.
    Even after removing all extensions:
    PS C:> (Get-Extension -GatewayEndpoint 'https://wac.lab.io' | Where {$_.Status -eq 'Installed'}).Count
    0
    PS C:>
    The Azure Monitor extension persists, as shown in the attachment.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Enable CSV Cache and View CSV Cache Performance Dashboard

    Currently we have to enable CSV caching via PowerShell which is not a big problem, however it would be great if this could be enabled in the WAC GUI along with stats in dashboard form that demonstrate the memory consumed by VM's, by the Hypervisor and what is available to enable as CSV Cache. Also if memory demands increase, due to added VM's or live migration, an indication that allocated CSV cache memory has been reduced.

  20. 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.
