  1. [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.

  4. .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.

  8. [Bug] msft.sme.certificate-manager failed to load

    Issue when I upgraded a working 1.1.1802 to 1803 - GUI comes up fine, but then whatever machine I click on, the Overview page shows

    msft.sme.certificate-manager failed to load

    [Reload]
    Error description

    Error while loading the module: 'msft.sme.certificate-manager'. Rpc: expired retries 'ping'

    This is when I click on the entry for the Honolulu server itself, or any other server that worked before. Despite the reference to ping, no apparent network issues. Tried disabling the local firewall, no change. Tried a complete re-install, having removed all traces in \programdata, and a procmon trace shows that there are plenty of entries with…

    We see this issue on machines with older versions of Windows 10 (before 1703.)

    We’ve added documentation for this specific issue to our troubleshooting guide here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/troubleshooting

    If you are still experiencing this please create a new bug with the details requested in the troubleshooting guide, so that we can further investigate the root cause.

  9. [Virtual Machines] Expose all configurable settings for VMs

    There doesn't appear to be a way to do things like turn Secure Boot off which is not compatible with every VM. Rather annoying to have to use Honolulu to create the VM then have to drop into PowerShell or Hyper-V MMC to configure the rest of the settings.

  15. [Connection list] [import] Allow Client Import to allow more fields (ie Tags, etc)

    With the client import feature, it would be easier, especially with larger environments, to be able to import a spreadsheet (or text file) of machines that would include fields that already exist in the other management platforms, such as Tags. They could be exported from Azure, SCVMM, or vCenter and not have to be entered manually for every entry. This could eventually lead to more fields being brought in that are either in-box or custom.

  16. [Bug] Localization] Can we PLEASE have dates that relate to the OS location?

    Can we PLEASE have dates that relate to the OS location? Apparently, I've got updates that need to be installed. The dates are 10/9/2017 which is last month for anyone outside of the US.

    International dates or at least use a full date format. Thanks.
