  1. Storage Replica: show percentage or amount of data replicated/to be replicated

    When looking at the SR Partnership it is not straightforward to see whether all data has been replicated or how much data is still outstanding, waiting to be replicated. The "Journal Count" gives an idea, but having a percentage or actual amount would be nice.

  3. [WAC] [SERVICES] [ISSUE] Services Logon expects a password, not compatible with gMSA

    how to reproduce:
    select a Server 2016 / 2019
    select services
    select a service
    go to log on credentials tab

    Issue:
    it expects a password to assign a user account

    expected behaviour:
    When username contains a $ it should accept the creds without password so to support group managed service accouncts, as recommended for services by Microsoft Security since Server 2012

    Please allow to just enter a username without supplying a password

    Please consider to use Powershell 6 Core internally to use "Set-Service" instead of WMI or CIM objects.

  4. [WAC] [Updates] [Issue] Windows update is very very slow - circling balls galore

    The page Updates is amazingly slow
    - populating the list of updates offered locally via WSUS
    - populating the list of updated offered via WU (Online) - this often stuck
    - progress of installation is not very visible

    Affected WAC version
    all WAC up to 1909

    Affected managed OS:
    and all managed OS from (2012-2019)

    If you compare the speed to local sconfig this is the reference. I know it uses PosH or sorts but needs to get much faster.

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

  8. Direct Access and VPN role

    Well, I like the Admin Center, but I cannot manage the Direct Access and VPN Role on a 2019 Core server. Hope that's planned and will be available soon.

  9. [Bug] Blank page showed when I choose extension in dropdown list.

    When I upgrade windows admin center to 1210, it will show a blank page when I choose extension.

    And got a 'sme-idle' element in debug mode.

    What's the meanings of 'sme-idle' ? And why it will replace the correct element ?

    Thanks

    Martin

  14. Credentials 'Manage as' not saved

    Credentials "Manage as" which are entered at a connection are not saved. When I restart the session to WAC, the credentials must be entered again.
    I use WAC from my client computer, which connects to the Gateway. I would like to use my admin account for connecting to the machines. WAC always uses my personal non-admin account per default.

  15. Powershell and RDP SSO for Gateway Mode

    Currently when deploying Windows Admin Center in Gateway Mode, Extension tools such as Powershell and RDP do no support SSO experience(even with RBCD). Manual Authentication is a Must to get access to this Tools. This becomes a Show stopper when using Smart Card Authentication, as password prompt doesn't offer Smartcard login.

    One would expect SSO for all tools however the expected behavior should be a Prompt that supports Smart based based login instead of Password.

    Can this be added as a feature update?

  18. 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.

  20. WAC installed as an APP using Edge C Canary works only if WAC is opend in Webpage before

    If you install the WAC as APP from new Edge Version 79.0.287.0 (Offizielles Build) canary (64-Bit)
    After a restart of the PC, the WAC do not start as APP, until the WAC was started onetime in normal Browser Window.
    After that it will start as APP again.
