  1. Hyper-V core 2016 is missing some tools...

    I've been running Hyper-V core 2012 servers the last five years, and they have been ROCK SOLID, never any issues. Recently retired the hardware, and installed Hyper-V Core 2016 on the new hardware. Sadly, windows recommended updates are now HANGING ( running overnight, can't complete!!) . I believe it was the latest servicing stack, and security rollup for dec 2019 that is stuck. It seems that the only well-documented-online cure is to use CMupdateReset.exe tool, but that is not included with the installation of server core ( the indicated location folders do not exist in our core installations...) Not sure…

  3. WAC Performance Monitor-Change Units

    I would like to be able to change units and/or have an option to auto-scale units. An example would be network adapter bandwidth which is fixed to Bytes/sec. I would like the option to change this to bits or bytes with kilo, mega, giga scales.

  4. WAC Performance Monitor-Reorder Monitors

    I would like to be able to reorder monitors in the WAC Performance Monitor beta. New monitors are added to the end of the list and cannot be moved to group similar monitors together.

  5. WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records and does not recreate

    WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records (even static ones) and does not recreate. Primary and Secondary DNS servers get changed even though an error is thrown in WAC "Couldn't update IPv4 network settings..."

  8. Configure LAPS password as a "Lazy Property"

    When querying AD Computer properties, the field storing the password set through the Local Administrator Password Solution is displayed in clear text by any account with permissions. An administrator querying other attributes can inadvertently display the password. If this were set as a "lazy property" then the ms-Mcs-AdmPwd field would need to be directly specified before the password was displayed. This would minimize accidental display and logging.

  9. Support non-Microsoft DNS and/or DHCP

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but being able to support some other DNS/DHCP solutions would be amazing. Perhaps this would be more of an avenue for an IPAM solution to add an extension.

  12. Add user selection button for username box

    When I'm using mmc snap-ins every username box has a "browse" button beside it. So I'm able to select a local pc user or an active directory user. It is very hard to remember all user's credentials if there're hundreds of them.

  13. Printer Management Powershell enhancement

    Would it be possible to enhance the powershell cmdlets for Printer Management to include the "Export printers to a file" and "Import printers from a file".

    I believe this would allow for a script to be created to enable easy backup of the print server to include print queues, ports, drivers and forms.

    The ability to do this is easily available in the GUI, but without a Powershell cmdlet, I can't find a way to script it. (I could be wrong).

  15. audit permissions on fileshares with Admincenter

    It would be nice to have a way to audit or display the permissions of a fileserver with AdminCenter. Maybe pull the share/NTFS permissions into a PowerBI report so that the permissions can be drilled down on by group or user or directory path.

  19. Add the ability to view previous PerfMon data captures

    The latest Windows Admin Center includes the ability to capture PerfMon data, but doesn't include the ability to upload and view existing data with a BLG or CSV through a saved Workspace.

    Over the years, my company has developed dozens of tools to automatically parse and allow for the slicing and dicing of historical PerfMon data saved as BLGs and CSVs to help troubleshoot customer environments. Allowing organizations to upload a BLG or CSV file that in turn displays the data using a Workspace template released by my company would save our organization significant time and help improve Windows Server…
