  1. Learn to spell "premises," and STOP USING PREMISE

    Learn to spell "premises," and STOP USING PREMISE. A "premise" is an IDEA, not a building. A "premises" is a building or campus, even if it's ONE building. So, if you can't be bothered to say all the syllables in "premises," say "prem" but for the Love of God, stop saying "premise" when you mean "premises."

    The premise of "Jaws" is that a giant shark is terrorizing a beach. This forces the sheriff to come out of his premises and defeat the shark.

  4. [Bug] Cannot add Windows PC connection to Windows Admin Center

    Connecting to remote server <FQDN> failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that a firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computers within the same local subnet. For more information, see the aboutRemoteTroubleshooting Help topic.

  5. Cannot add servers access was denied

    I cannot add any servers in my organization using local administrator accounts. WMF 5.1 is installed, but I keep getting access denied messages. Perhaps you could add a step by step guide for adding a server.

    Step by step guide to adding a server is here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/launch#connecting-to-managed-nodes-and-clusters

    Using local administrator accounts: If you are using a local user account that is not the built-in administrator account, you will need to enable the policy on the target machine by running the following command in PowerShell or at a Command Prompt as Administrator on the target machine:
    REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1

    See more on the troubleshooting guide: http://aka.ms/wactroubleshooting

    Gateway users and Gateway administrator configuration only applies when Windows Admin Center in installed as a Server service, when installed on desktop, there is only one user.

    If you’ve installed on server, you’ll find the Gateway users and Gateway administrators on the Access tab of Windows Admin Center settings (the gear icon in the top right.)

    Where are you seeing this message?

    Are you sure that this is not the warning that you get when using the installer-generated, self-signed certificate?
    “This site is not secure” (Microsoft Edge) or “Your connection is not private” (Google Chrome)

    Only Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome are supported: https://aka.ms/WindowsAdminCenter-Browsers

    Please create a new item that includes the troubleshooting information from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/troubleshooting#filebug

  14. Redesign in HTML5 so all modern browsers will work

    The Windows Admin Center does not work in Edge, I have to use Chrome.

    Its not a esoteric feature that fails, the absolute basics do not work in Edge. I've tried adding a server to it, the "Please Enter name of server to manage" dialog does not appear in Edge and the "Submit" button does not appear. It is completely non-functional in Edge.

    How about it be redesigned in HTML5 so that any modern browser will work?

  18. When i first open Project Honolulu my EDGE browser says "This site is not secure". How do i secure it?

    Need instructions to make this site secure "out of the box". Is that something I have to do on each computer/browser. or is that a global setting?
