  3. [Chrome Browser] Chrome may pop-up multiple credential prompts

    Google Chrome keeps asking for multiple credential prompts/sign in's, especially when connecting to other servers through Windows Admins Center even when the WAC server is on a domain. This issue does not seem to happen Microsoft Edge.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue?

  4. [Remote Desktop] Allow /RestrictedAdmin feature in Remote Desktop

    Allow an option to enable the RestrictedAdmin feature for Remote Desktop connection. It should be done in a way that we clearly see which option is in use during the connection and a give us a way to turn it on/off easily.

  6. [UI] [Navagation] Easier way to move between machines in server manager once a machine is connected

    Easier way to move between machines in server manager once a machine is connected. I would be ideal to be able to select other servers from withing other machines management screens instead of having to select server manager then picking out the machine. It would also be great to have the ability to mange the replication of virtual machines.

  7. [UI] % For memory usage? Why!!!!

    It looks nice yes, but I also want xgb used of xgb. Why make me work this out?? For instance, on VM host, 4 machines running on it, 72.4% of 32gb. How does that let me know what RAM I have free to use? I have to then do a manual step? I of course have a spreadsheet with what I have assigned the machines, but surely the Admin Centre should be looking to replace these old tools?

  9. [Security] manage Local Security Policy

    Ability to manage Local Security Policy for a server, such as Log On As A Service rights for example. I know that some of it can be done with Group Policies, but for non-domain joined machines or machines that you don't want to create a domain Group Policy it would make it easier to manage. Especially the Server Core machines.

  10. [Local users and groups] Allow multiple users to be added to local groups

    I have several service accounts and users to add to the local Admins and other groups on various servers. It would be nice if we could add multiple users using the ";" or even better, autocomplete names when typing in a domain user like for example, SharePoint.

  11. [Updates] Windows Updates Maintain State

    Allow the user to move to a new tab once the "Install Updates" button is pressed. Currently it resets the state as if the user hadn't told the server to install updates once the user changes servers or moves to a different tab.

  17. [LAPS] [Gatetway] WAC should be able to use LAPS when installed on a gateway server.

    WAC should be able to use LAPS when WAC is installed on a gateway. Currently LAPS is only and option if you have it installed on a workstation. This creates a large barrier for adoption for us.

  19. [Bug] [RBAC] Unable to connect to server using an account with RBAC privileges without authenticating twice

    When signed in to Windows Admin Center using an account that is in one of the Windows Admin Center RBAC groups for a server, the "Manage As" button has to be used to select "Use another account for this connection" and authenticate again. If the user does not click "Manage As" to authenticate again, they will be unable to connect to the server.
    I would propose that Windows Admin Center should allow the user to connect to the server without requiring the user to authenticate a second time.
