  1. DPM - Need the ability to customize retention policies better

    Need the ability to customize the Azure online retention policies better.

    If my "Online backup schedule" is set to "Week" and I choose Saturday, my Monthly and Yearly backups must be set to a Day (as in Last Saturday). I do not want to choose a Day (Saturday) for my Monthly and Yearly backups -- I want to choose a Numbered Day (like Last Day) for those.

    Weekly Backups - Saturday
    Monthly Backups - Last Day of Month
    Yearly Backups - Last Day of Year

    For example, with my Online Schedule set to "Week" with "Saturday", my November 2018 Monthly…

      • WAC - Computer Management - File browsing / Network interfaces

        Both File browsing and network interfaces are missing from computer management but included in server management. Shouldn't be to hard to include.

          There's a lot of stuff that the device manager can do that doesn't have a CLI equivalent such as:

          * Force installing a driver (selecting a specific .inf in the "have disk" device manager menu)
          * Automatically finding and installing the best driver in a folder with multiple drivers.
          * Rolling back to a previous driver version
          * Selecting to use a different driver in the driver store for a device (for example changing to the basic display driver without uninstalling the normal display drivers)
