  2. [Deployment] [Container] containerize

    Make Honolulu available as a container image. This would be helpful for creation on semi-annual servers.

  3. [Bug][Updates] Reboots machine immediately even if a future reboot time is specified.

    WAC 1910, build 1.2.1910.31005
    Server Management
    module/tab: Updates
    Function: Install-WindowsUpdates

    Issue: Schedule restart takes no effect.

    Schedule restart setting is not effect, target server reboots immediately after windows update installed while schedule restart time was defined in web UI

    event found on WAC:
    {"powerShell":"Install-WindowsUpdates","module":"msft.sme.shell"}

    event on target server:
    {"powerShell":"Install-WindowsUpdates","module":"msft.sme.shell","userOnGateway":"###########","gateway":"##########","delegation":"True","userOnTarget":"########"}

  4. Windows AdminCenter 1804 TLS configuration

    Just installed Windows AdminCenter 1804 and checked the TLS configuration. Unfortunately TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 is offered, as well as weak ciphers such as DES-CBC3-SHA, RC4-MD5 and others.

    Not only should security priority on a server management tool, but also it just doesn't make sense to me, to offer TLS1.0 if only Edge and Chrome is supported as a browser.

    Hence my suggestion would be to enable only TLS1.2 with a limited set of ciphers, such as ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256 and ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384.

  5. [BUG] Import connections crash the WAC

    Upgraded to Windows Admin Center 1910 and imported connections using the Import-Connection powershell module.

    WAC will no longer load with error

  6. Copy Folders & Drag and Drop

    It would be great if the file manager in windows admin center supported uploading folders and not simply files. Also it would be really nice if you could simply drag and drop files and folders from you pc into the file browser in Windows Admin Center to upload them.
