  4. [RBAC] Role Based Access Control for Windows Admin Center

    Have the ability for an admin to add all servers or monitored machines into a back end, and setup role based access control using AD security groups, which mean admins don't need to manually add all servers themselves.

    For example, if a customer has 20 physical machines and 50 VM's, that could be a lot of entries, especially with a team of server technicians. Adding it all once, and then configuring RBAC, means less configuration long term.

  5. [Bug]RDP to Server 2008R2 not working

    There is no "Remote Desktop" tool in left panel, when connecting to Server 2008R2. In settings "Remote Desktop" shows "Don't allow remote connection to this computer", but on target server int is on. Can't allow remote connections thru WAC, because it hangs and never apply changes. Meanwhile remote Powershell works fine.

  7. [Connections] Allow connections to be customized with PSSession parameters

    When trying to connect to a server that requires the use of the IncludePortInSPN SessionOption, the connection fails. I'm assuming this is because Admin center is just trying to use a standard PSSession. It would be nice to be able to customize this to use the -IncludePortInSPN session option or other options

  11. [Bug] Unexpected error with Azure Update Management integration

    When opening the Updates tab of any managed system we receive the following error when WAC attempts to query if the system is managed by Azure Update Management:
    Unexpected error occurred while detecting Update Management setup: n is null

    All of the systems managed by WAC in our installation are registered with Azure Update Management.

    On navigating to the Updates page a pop-up appears for authenticating to Azure AD which does appear to succeed. If we use browser developer tools to monitor the network traffic we can see the GET request to login.microsoftonline.com return a 302 response with a response…

  12. [Storage] WAC & Virtual Hard Disk Wizard

    To have the Virtual Hard Disk Wizard included in WAC would be very beneficial. Currently, either PS or having to run a separate Hyper V manager to access such facilities.

    Would like to see this implemented.

    Regards

  13. [Windows 10S] Windows 10 in S mode should have support

    Windows 10 in S mode should have support for Windows Admin Center. Versions 1803+ have Enterprise/Pro in S mode and would be great to have this tool. RSAT is already available as an Optional feature, would be nice to see WAC as a FoD or in the Store.
