  1. [Bug]Admin Center does not work with Edge Chromium at all

    Edge (Chromium) Version 84.0.522.61 (Official build) (64-bit) fails to open Admin Center at all.
    Works fine in Firefox and old Edge.
    Nothing from the troubleshooting/known issues information helped.

    error message (see screenshot):
    Untrusted Host Window
    Windows Admin Center has detected that it is being run in an improperly configured hosted environment. To prevent unsecured messaging of sensitive data this environment has been blocked.

  2. Multiple servers open in Windows Admin Center

    Would like to have it so you can have a tabbed interface at the top where you can be working on multiple servers at once. In my current RDP tools I might have a 2 or more tabs open where i'm working on multiple servers

    The hability to Move VM storage bettwen Local Volumes or CSV. feature know like "Storage vMotion" in vSphere. We can do this with powershell "Move-VM --IncludeStorage]" or with WFC. But would be great do this with Admin Center.

  5. [Hyper-V] [Cluster] Add ability to view, remove, manage, name snapshots

    Recently setup a Failover Cluster with WAC, one can create snapshots but not manage them.

    in the VM > Settings > Snapshots there is no view of Snapshots either.
    As the legacy Failover Cluster Management MMC does not allow to manage Snapshots either one has to fall back to Hyper-V Manager to do this which is weird. :)

    please add to views:

    Virtual Machine
    Cluster > Inventory
    Hyper-V Node > Inventory


    • view snapshots

    • rename snapshots

    • delete snapshot / delete all snapshots, delete subsequent snapshots

    as in Hyper-V Manager mmc

  6. E' veramente una bellissima coreografia per gestire il programma come Menager del mio PC veramente geniale grazie molto a Microsoft.

    Per me va benissimo così com'è ma se si vuole aggiornare si potrebbe aggiungere una grafica di controllo per gli aggiornamenti come le notifiche per aiutarmi ad aggiornare le estensioni come ho fatto questa sera per il resto va benissimo grazie di nuovo Giancarlo Maiano

  7. [ASC] Azure Security Center Cannot Display Recomendation and Alert in Windows Admin Center

    I am currently currently in the Explore Windows Admin Center version 1910. Now I'm integrating into Azure. But I Encountered a problem when setup the Azure Security Center. Dara recommendation and alerts do not appear in the Windows Admin Center. Though on the portal Azure comes up recommendation and such alerts.

    Is it because this feature is still a preview/coming soon?

  11. [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.

    WAC installed as gateway on Windows Server 2016 (OS Build 14393.2969) - connected to domain
    WAC version 1906 preview

  12. 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.

  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.

  17. [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

  18. [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.
