How can we improve the management tools and experience in Windows Server?

[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.

        This was the exact functionality I was hoping for when I installed this. Especially dealing with Windows Updates from a centralized view when no WSUS is installed.

        I agree with Chris G on this as we have a lot of servers to manage. A quick view to check status will make life easier.

        Yes please! I need a dashboard similar to Server Manager where I can see right away if everything is OK.

        In addition, I would like to see "nearly expired" certificates in one or more stores, across multiple servers in a single view

        I also join the request from Manfred Helber.
        A general survey is essential for a fast view an reporting to C-Level.

        Agreed, it doesn't feel very "Enterprisey" yet. With hundreds or thousands of servers this would become very messy quickly.

        Adding all Servers only lets us manage servers one by one.
        Overall utilisation, pressure points, etc. are not visible.

        A (customisable) dashboard for all Overview stats would be nice

        It would be nice to have the ability to see network utilization or disk utilization of all servers or those that you choose, in its own dashboard.
