  2. remote desktop

    When using the Remote Desktop feature, Edge is popping up a sub-menu as if a dialog box is selected. This obscures the screen--particularly the Start menu of the target machine.

    Admin Center Build 1.2.1910.31005
    Microsoft Edge 41.16299.1480.0
    Microsoft EdgeHTML 16.16299

  4. SSH in Windows Admin Center

    It would be nice to have an SSH connection prompt next to the PowerShell connection prompt in WAC.

  5. Add the ability to configure a proxy for WAC to Install and Update Extensions

    When deploying WAC on a Windows Server as the ‘Windows Admin Center’ Service you cannot access Internet Feeds for Extensions (e.g. https://aka.ms/sme-extension-feed) via a proxy server if the Server does not have direct access to the Internet. This means the user experience is diminished as new Extensions cannot downloaded via the Extensions section in WAC and / or existing extensions cannot be updated via the Extensions section.

    It can be achieved by setting a proxy for the Network Service account that the WAC Service runs under, but that's not ideal.

    Suggest adding the option to configure a proxy the…

  6. Better counter instance selection experience

    When looking at a graph with many counter instances, it's helpful to select an instance and highlight it in the graph. However, deselecting it or going back to all instances being "highlighted" is difficult. In a live view, the selected instance moves around the instance legend making it difficult to deselect.

    I think the selected instance(s) should be pinned at the top/beginning of the instance legend being sorted by name or value. If the selected instance is deselected it should go back to being sorted the same was as the other deselected instances.

  8. [bug] windows admin center -- Shared connections become Personal

    We've seen this with two instances: servers added as "shared connections" will spontaneously turn into personal connections, thus removing them from the view of any other users. Tags are also lost when this occurs.

  9. Unable to Authenticate due to Case Change

    Upon logging into the Windows Admin Center interface to manage servers I note the domain and the user case have changed. When attempting to click on a managed server I am prompted to authenticate with different credentials. I modify the credentials to use the correct font case and I am able to login and manage the servers. I have created screenshots and have attached them.

  11. Storage Migration Service and netBIOS computer name

    We came accross this lovely gotcha when attempting to migrate a Server 2008R2 fileserver using the Storage Migration Service.

    TLDR: if your server name is longer then 15 characters, use the netBIOS name in Storage Migration Service!

    It's amazing how sometimes in the simplest things that trip you up.

    It appears the Storage Migration Service uses the netBIOS computer name and not the computer name or FQDN.

    When we had tested a Enter-PSSession to the FQDN of the server (which is longer than 15 characters), we got a successful connection, but the service would fail. When we did a Enter-PSSession…

  12. Windows Admin Center Extensions cannot be installed using standard user Windows Session

    Windows Admin Center installed on Windows 10 1909. Logged in with an account in Windows with standard user permissions. Right-click and run-as on Windows Admin Center and enter admin credentials. There is no process spawned running my admin credentials.

    Launching Edge or Chromium Edge or Windows Admin Center with standard user credentials will launch the page just fine, but I receive an error trying to install any extensions for the Windows Admin Center with error message "Couldn't install the extension: 'Active Directory (Preview)'. Error: Access denied. Unable to perform requested operation. Administrative privilege is required."

    The old version of Edge…

  13. Add a column for total VM disk throughput - Virtual machine view

    Hi

    we would like to see a column for total VM disk throughput - Virtual machine view, so that you can identify vm's hogging the disk.

    and also get alert for it in the alerts view like you do with memory usages etc.

  14. Windows Admin Center - Cluster Creation - local admin group issue

    Hi all and Happy new year 2020 !

    I tried in vain to create a cluster with WAC and 2 VM on wich I installed Windows Server 2019 DataCenter.
    I had installed FO cluster features manually.
    Just in case, I ran the command given by Taka :
    "Install-WindowsFeature –Name Failover-Clustering -IncludeManagementTools", but no change.
    .
    When I add my servers, they are found as OnLine.
    But I get this error : "The provided domain user account credentials are not in the local Administrators group …". So I cannot continue.

    As suggested, I added the domain admin account to the local…

  15. [Bug] - CBS Pending reboot check

    [Bug] - Pending reboot due to CBS

    The code to check for a reboot does not appear to correctly test if there is a pending reboot related to Component Based Servicing.

    On the servers I have, the following line of code from the Test-PendingReboot function does not return a value.

    Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\RebootPending"

    Testing the same registry path with the "Get-Item" cmdlet returns a value when there is a pending reboot related to CBS.

  16. Give the ability to view and edit pagefile and startup and recovery options

    It would be really convenient to have this ability instead of tweaking registry.

    Thank you

  17. Total frustration with the Eval 2019 and Storage Migration. Lost 2 day trying to find out what I was doing wrong.

    Let everyone know up front of the inabilities of the the Eval and the Storage Migration Service. I lost hours; days trying to find out what I was doing wrong. Why can't the Eval download be updated to fix this enormous oversight.

  18. [Storage]

    存储管理目前还不支持共享存储(iscsi),共享文件属性窗口一直在转圈,无法显示内容。估计关闭会话和打开的文件功能也没有。像域账号和文件共享,这是最基本的管理啊,还要加强。

  19. Deploy behind reverse proxy

    It will be nice to fix links to relative URL manner and make it possible to run Admin Center behind reverse proxy. At least, it will prevent opening "strange" ports on "edge" servers as well as saving additional certificates, not to mention simplicity of acces such as https://mycompany.com/admincenter/. I've tried to do that, (behind IIS) but there are hudnreds of issues and finally gage up. Hope it will be fixed.
