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

[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.

    Same issue here from Server 2016 (our RDS jump host for IT) with Chrome.

    Same goes here, I constantly have to retype credentials to be able to manage, minimum 3-4 times for each server I attempt to open and "using windows credentials" won't work, I have to use "other" and type "DOMAIN\username" and pass

    I'm also having an odd issue where the Graph for CPU and Memory isn't showing up, but network will in Firefox.

    Server 2016 LTSC, which we use as a jump host, doesn't have Edge, so need authentication to work with any browser.

    Getting prompted for invalid credentials when I'm already a local admin

    Rocking this in gateway mode on Server 2016, enabled Kerberos delegation on that computer object to no change via Firefox/Edge/Chrome.
