  2. [Certificate] Column "Certificate name"

    The column is too small, needs to be bigger/extendable.

    Thumbprint, Date issued & Expiration Date can be smaller
    PS: Thumbprint could show the first 4 and the last 4 digits with Ellipses for easier verification

  3. Font rendering: Non-Latin scripts are rendered poorly

    Windows Admin Center renders text using the Segoe UI font. This font is beautiful and rich. It can render a number of scripts including Hebrew, Arabic and Greek. However, for some reason, in Windows Admin Center, only Latin-based scripts are rendered using the Segoe UI font. Other scripts like Arabic, Hebrew and Greek fall back to "Helvetica". As a result, managing files with non-English characters in the file manager of Windows Admin Center is a harrowing experience.

  7. 윈도우 서버 2019의 Windows Admin Center의 한글버전에 오타가 있습니다

    윈도우 서버 2019의 Windows Admin Center의 한글버전에 오타가 있습니다. rolesfeatures의 번역이 "역학과 기능"으로 되어 있습니다. 아마도 "역할과 기능"이 옳은 것 같습니다.

  8. Enable shift+click in "All Connections" view to select multiple connections

    AMAZING TOOL, GUYS!!!
    Suggestion:
    The "All Connections" view doesn't seem to have the functionality to allow shift+click to select multiple systems, but I could be mistaken. This is useful to be able to "Manage As" for a specific domain's servers when managing multiple domains.

  9. Is it possible that Microsoft's Download for WAC has been hijacked by Malware?

    Today I decided to try out WAC. Around 2pm on 1/4/2019 I went to the MS site to download the installer (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/understand/windows-admin-center) and i clicked the download link which linked to http://aka.ms/WACDownload

    I downloaded a file called WindowsAdminCenter1809.msi. The first thing that i noticed is that Symantec Endpoint warned me that the file was unknown to them and DownloadInsight recommended the file be deleted. I told Symantec to allow the file to remain. When right clicked on the file and chose to install it, Windows and UAC warned that the file was not digitally signed and was from…

  10. [Disconnected Environment] offline mode in settings

    Implement an "offline" toggle switch in settings so WAC, deployed in and isolated network will not fire notifications about Azure hybrid functionality, extensions update, etc.

  13. Add sever list export option

    I would like to be able to export the server list and tags I have created on a WAC host and load them on another host.

    Use case: The initial WAC host we loaded all the host names and tags on is no longer an appropriate host or is being EOL'd.
    We want a backup copy of all the information and the ability to load it on another host for support team reasons.

  14. Overview: Installed Memory (RAM) reports wrong value

    Overview top right corner says Installed Memory (RAM): and below that (on this machine) 16 GB. The panel below has the Memory chart which shows the correct value 112GB. I suspect the Overview is reporting the RAM of the host running the Admin Center.

  16. [Bug] Can't administer local laptop, which WAC is installed on.

    Win10 1803 Build 18219
    Azure-AD Joined device, AAD-user logged on.
    Using the self-signed cert.
    Installer auto-selected port 6516, which I accepted.

    Browsing WAC works fine, I can add extensions even.

    But managing the laptop upon which WAC is installed on fails on authentication.

    Error: Your credentials didn’t work - try again
    Event-viewer gives:
    "401 - PSRemotingTransportException: Connecting to remote server desktop-xxxx failed with the following error message : Access is denied. For more information, see the aboutRemoteTroubleshooting Help topic."

    This happens even if I try to logon with a local-user which is member of Administrators group.

    You are hitting two separate issues here -

    You’ll need to use manage-as credentials to manage localhost.
    This note mentions MSAs, but it can also apply AAD accounts:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/known-issues#computer-management-solution

    Connecting as a local admin that is not the built-in local Administrator account is restricted by this setting:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/troubleshooting#i-can-connect-to-some-servers-but-not-others

  17. [Installer] Installer fails if Windows Update service is disabled

    This is not entirely new idea - I take it as a bug honestly.

    If I install Windows Admin Center with disabled WUA service (I am simulating inability to access the internet - i.e. labs, bank systems etc.) the installation fails without any reason. There are no logs on disk, no message in event logs.


    • As a user I would really like the idea to install this on environment without internet access (as mentioned above there are situation when the environment has no access to internet due to security rasons)

  18. [bug] wrong [german] [translation] for "fixed" in disk properties

    The translation of the disk property "fixed" is wrong in the german version. "fixed" will translated with "behoben", what means a problem is solved. But I think in this case is meant a non removable disk. The best possible translation is "Festplatte".

  19. Start/Stop/Pause

    For me, a useful thing would be to select multiple VMs to start / stop / pause at the same time in one command.
