  2. [WinRM] [Configuration] Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers

    Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers.
    I have deployed certificates and configured WinRM over SSL on all my servers and was planning to use WAC but it seems it can only connect using HTTP/5985 which is really disappointing.

  5. [UI] Please add the ability for tabbed server connections on Honolulu

    Hello, this project looks like something I wanted for a very long time.
    Right now, if you for example try to manage the Windows Updates on a bigger number of systems, it is not very usable, as you cannot open the servers concurrently (tabbed) to check status, etc. and speed up work.
    We do this currently with RDP sessions (dozens of them...),and having that capability in Honolulu would be great.

    Also, in addition: A Dashboard would be really nice!

  6. [Connection list] Possibility to have predefined connections

    It would be great if the administrator can add predefined connections (maybe with predefined credentials), so that all users accessing the Honolulu console will see all connections.

    Use case: We have 300+ servers to manage, it would be great if we can have them predefined in Honolulu for the whole operations team.

  7. [Virtual Machines] Add the Hyper-V VM console to WAC, in addition to RDP

    Please add the VM console, Virtual Machine Connection console, as seen when using the Hyper-V console. Currently, when you "connect" to a VM in WAC, an RDP connection is created. RDP is ok, but the virtual machine connection console should be an option. Please avoid adding the Virtual machine viewer as seen in VMM 2012/2016 as it has limited features compared to the full blown VMC from the Hyper-V console.

    In the Virtual Machines tool (both for Server connections and Cluster connections), you can select a VM and choose “Connect” which will use VM Connect through the Hyper-V host in your web browser, or choose “Download RDP File” which will download the .RDP file to open in Remote Desktop Connection (mstsc.exe). This is a special type of .RDP file which actually uses VM Connect to the Hyper-V host, not RDP directly to the VM. If there is anything missing for VM Connect scenarios or specific reasons for needing the VM console, please submit as a separate feature request.

  8. [UI] Do not show the tools if it does not apply to the particular server.

    Do not show the tools if it does not apply to the particular server.

    When a Domain Controller is not hyper-v host, I do not want to see tools like Virtual Machines and Virtual Switches.

    I would only like to see the tools that apply to the server, tools that belong to the installed roles and features. On a Domain Controller managment tools such as ADDS, DNS DHCP and a file server DFS and File and Resource management.

  11. [Export] Server Views/Lists

    Similar to Remote Desktop Connection Manager, have the ability to export a list of pre-defined servers so others on the team don't have to add 400+ servers manually. Likewise, if I have a CSV of all my servers, have the ability to import them and not have to manually add them.

  15. [Extentions] Create a central repository for extensions

    This may already be in the plan. In the Extension Manager, Available Extensions (or a 3rd category) should list extensions that are available in a comprehensive external repository like GitHub separated into categories.

  18. .iso files Should be allowed when creating new VM

    In the "New virtual machine" pane, the "Operating system" section, check the "Install an operating system from an image file (.iso)" then enter a path to an ISO file.
    You get a red error message "(!) .ISO files are not allowed"
    This is, by all means, a bug.
    Please fix.
