  1. Wrap WAC in electron or create a react native version for local installs

    Please wrap WAC as an electron app for at least local installs. This would allow better performance for WAC, allow for use in restricted areas where web browsers are not allowed, allow for the use of SmartCards on local installs, and many more things

  2. [Connection List] Active Directory sync

    Great would be if you can define multiple OUs to connect to, where the computer objects are situated. So not only an import more like a synchronisation, so that if there are new computers added the list is up to date. And a folder browsing that reflects the OUs with some additional views like "All Connections", "Favorite Connections" and "Recent Connections".

  3. [Services] Implement a "Restart" button for services

    Currently there's only the option to stop or start a Service in WAC. Please add a "Restart" button. A PowerShell Cmdlet exists for this, so this should be no Problem.

  6. [Feature request] Honolulu should be able to send Email notifications

    Please add a functionality to Honolulu that enables the Honolulu Server to send Email notifications. There should be two options:
    1. a global value to be notified via Email if there are Warnings/Alerts - the should be a option to chose: notify for warnings and alerts and notify only for alerts
    2. it would be great to have an button nearby important configurable values "create alert" and then there should be an option to configure a value and chose if the notification should be send when the running value gets greater or smaller than the configured value

  8. [RBAC] Role Based Access Control for Windows Admin Center

    Have the ability for an admin to add all servers or monitored machines into a back end, and setup role based access control using AD security groups, which mean admins don't need to manually add all servers themselves.

    For example, if a customer has 20 physical machines and 50 VM's, that could be a lot of entries, especially with a team of server technicians. Adding it all once, and then configuring RBAC, means less configuration long term.

  9. Cluster Creation fails with 1910

    When attempting to add two new Windows Server 2019 nodes with nothing else besides updates and one Management IP, I get this error message:

    server01.domain.com not found, or the provided credentials don’t have access. Verify the name and credentials are correct, check that server is up, and then click Refresh to try again.

    I changed the credentials to a Domain Admin account, added the account manually to local Administrators and tried other accounts as well. I was able to add each server as standalone servers to Windows Admin Center but the issue is only when I try to create the…

  10. [Feature Request] - Admin Center - Windows Update integration

    Because Microsoft does not provide any documentation on usoclient.exe, it is not (reliably) possible (useing PowerShell) to get clients to install updates (immediately), etc. (especially drivers provided by WSUS).
    Request: Admin Center integrated feature "WSUS" which makes it possible to retrieve pending Windows updates remotely, install etc. (similar GUI as in W10 itself, at least the same funktions LIKE LOKAL GUI!)

  13. [BUG] WAC version 1910, keyboard in RDP session is still not working correctly

    Remote Desktop session keyboard is still not in the correct localized format and there is no way to change it.
    For us it makes the RDP feature of WAC totally unusable.

  17. show Windows Update on Dashboard

    It will be a good Idea to select more than one server and have it search for updates.. instead of one by one.. Once a month I have to spend hours just on waiting for the servers to apply the updates.. it will be a great Idea to centralize that...
