  2. [Chrome Browser] Admin Center Security issue: clicking "Sign in" when prompted allows login without entering input

    While using Google Chrome 69.0.3497.100. Clicking “Sign in” on the login prompt without entering anything allows anyone log into the Admin Center as “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON”

    Admin Center is installed on Server 2016 in the same domain as the client computer accessing it.

    Can this security hole please be fixed?

    Edge does not have this issue.

    I verified that these settings are set correctly to prevent anonymous logins on the server:
    Network access: Allow anonymous SID/Name translation
    Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts
    Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares

  5. [Server Overview] [Bug] Honolulu disk speeds show are labeled as Mbps when they should be MBps

    With disk metrics enabled, read and write speed are shown as MB/s, however the label is Mbps, making me think there was a speed issue when there was not. Please fix the label.

  6. [Bug] [Updates] Multiple updates installation takes no effect.

    WAC 1906 preview
    Server Management
    module/tab: Updates
    Function Install-WindowsUpdates

    Multiple updates installation takes no effect.
    Single update installation works.

    In case of multiple selection of updates, the powershell "Install-WindowsUpdates" function, passes the parameter $updateIDs as single string to $Script.
    In efect, during execution of $Script - Install-Updates.ps1 line with check:
    If($Update.Identity.UpdateID -in $updateIDs)
    always fail and updates are not installed.

  8. [Bug] typing an 'a' (lowercase) in any textbox will result in focus changeging to the "add" button

    Typing an 'a' will result in the "add" button to get the input focus. This bug happens only with the lower case 'a'. Upper case 'A' works without any Problem. Repro: Install Windows Admin Center 1808, click on the search text box, typing an 'a' will result in search box loosing Focus and "add" button getting Focus ("hinzufügen" button in german). Repro was on two Servers with using german language Settings for OS and german language selected in Admin Center. other languages not tested

  10. [Bitlocker] Add bitlocker reporting in Windows Admin Center

    I see lots of storage info but nothing about drive encryption. If this was added, I could deploy it to all my non-domain Windows 10 machines and be HIPPA compliant without having to purchase 3rd party products.

  12. [Bug] [Events] Event Viewer bug for ADFS server

    There is a bug when viewing the event log for a Windows 2016 ADFS server in PH. Underneath "Applications and Services" there is a blank line where "AD FS" should be.

  14. [Bug] [Virtual Machines] VHD files case sensitivity

    File extension validation is case sensitive. Install Hyper-V Management.

    Tools -> Virtual Machines -> Inventory -> New

    Set up new parameters

    Add Disk -> Use an existing virtual hard disk

    Give a virtual hard disk with a .VHDX extension, there is an error saying that .VHDX files are not allowed.

    Rename the VHD file from a .VHDX extension to a .vhdx extension. The file can now be used as an existing disk for the VM.

  15. [Bug][Files]Quota management

    In this page:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/it-it/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/manage-servers#span-data-ttu-id08651-253filespanspan-classsxs-lookupspan-data-stu-id08651-253filesspanspan

    quota management is listed as a feature of the Files panel.
    However, at least in WAC version 1809.5, I'm not able to access the quota management feature from "Files".
    Where is it?

    Cheers

    Marco

  17. [Devices]Programatically add servers through powershell

    We use Virtual Machine Scale Sets in Azure, the elastic nature of scale sets means we would need to manually add and remove servers very often.

    Ideal situation:
    A powershell command that our deployment environment can tell WAC to add a new server, with its applicable details.

    A powershell command that our deployment environment can tell WAC to delete servers that have been scaled back (destroyed)

  19. [RDP] [Bug] Add "ctrl+atl+delete" functionality to remote desktop

    If project Honolulu is going to go back to remote desktop client for connections to virtual machines can we not get a control for sending "ctrl+alt+end" to the remote VM. For instance, if you are on the road and need to connect to your Honolulu host due to issues you are already likely accessing it over RDP, now when you nest another RDP session (to the vm you need to work on) there appears to be no way to get a "ctrl+allt+end" to that nested session (unless I am missing something). This is something which was addressed in the Virtual…

  20. One Console to rule them all

    First off I love it! It’s the best improvement to stack management since I have been using Hyper-V. I would like to be able to use this single console to manage a deployment from Hyper-V to VM, Cluster, and, Storage. There are some minor things I would like to be fixed like window sizing when viewing side by side with another window. To more important things like being able to manage NIC teaming. If you want to do this product right you/we should be able to deploy a whole stack from start to finish with just this console. My thinking…
