  1. [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

    The SMTP Server…

  2. [Deployment] Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins

    Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins. I find it hard to believe that every admin at a business will need to config this product separately. Why not have a admin group that can see all and have one person doing all the config work.....

  3. [Multi-Machine] Please create consolditated view on the servers in Honolulu console

    Actually its possible to add different servers to Honolulu console to manage them individually. It would be great to have a consolidated view over all these managed servers regarding warnings, alerts, performance and capacity data with a drill down option into the affected server object.

  5. [Credentials ]Login page with SSO button (+ User Management)

    Gives the possibility to login in with an admin account, if you are working with an normal account on your computer.
    Also you should be able to restrict access to i.e. an AD group.

  9. [Deployment] [Container] containerize

    Add a checkbox in front of all the Windows Updates so we can choose which one we want to install. And you should add a date/time picker when we schedule the restart

  11. [Update] Update Honolulu inside of Honolulu web interface

    Right now we have to go out and download the latest version of Honolulu and install. It would be cool to see an option, maybe inside of settings, to click search for and install updates for Honolulu.

  16. [Bug]Too many authentication pop-ups

    Too many authentication pop-ups. Literally making this tool unusable.

    Chrome / Firefox - no luck, still prompted. Unable to test it on Edge because the servers do not have Edge. Edge on user's workstation is again not helpful because any corporate environment is expected to have proxy and bound to websocket issue that is mentioned in known issues.

    So at the end, a tool which is mentioned as "production ready" doesn't seems to be so. At first, very exited about the concept but result is not encouraging.

  19. [WinRM] [Configuration] Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers

    Use WinRM over SSL, port 5986 to connect to remote servers.
    I have deployed certificates and configured WinRM over SSL on all my servers and was planning to use WAC but it seems it can only connect using HTTP/5985 which is really disappointing.

  20. [New Tool] DSC Management

    Add a Management solution for Desired State Configuration. Report how the LCM is configured and if a DSC is used, and if yes, which resources have been configured.
    Being able to supply a .mof for a push config would be sweet as well!
