  1. [BUG] Import connections crash the WAC

    Upgraded to Windows Admin Center 1910 and imported connections using the Import-Connection powershell module.

    WAC will no longer load with error

  2. [Services] Implement a "Restart" button for services

    Currently there's only the option to stop or start a Service in WAC. Please add a "Restart" button. A PowerShell Cmdlet exists for this, so this should be no Problem.

  3. [Hyper-V] [Cluster] Add ability to view, remove, manage, name snapshots

    Recently setup a Failover Cluster with WAC, one can create snapshots but not manage them.

    in the VM > Settings > Snapshots there is no view of Snapshots either.
    As the legacy Failover Cluster Management MMC does not allow to manage Snapshots either one has to fall back to Hyper-V Manager to do this which is weird. :)

    please add to views:

    Virtual Machine
    Cluster > Inventory
    Hyper-V Node > Inventory


    • view snapshots

    • rename snapshots

    • delete snapshot / delete all snapshots, delete subsequent snapshots

    as in Hyper-V Manager mmc

  4. E' veramente una bellissima coreografia per gestire il programma come Menager del mio PC veramente geniale grazie molto a Microsoft.

    Per me va benissimo così com'è ma se si vuole aggiornare si potrebbe aggiungere una grafica di controllo per gli aggiornamenti come le notifiche per aiutarmi ad aggiornare le estensioni come ho fatto questa sera per il resto va benissimo grazie di nuovo Giancarlo Maiano

  5. [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…

  6. [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.....

    With support for shared connections and management of connections and Extensions with PowerShell, we are going to mark this as complete.

    If you have a more specific feature that would help you configure Windows Admin Center one time for all your admins, please create new suggestions.

    Read more about shared connections:

  7. [ASC] Azure Security Center Cannot Display Recomendation and Alert in Windows Admin Center

    I am currently currently in the Explore Windows Admin Center version 1910. Now I'm integrating into Azure. But I Encountered a problem when setup the Azure Security Center. Dara recommendation and alerts do not appear in the Windows Admin Center. Though on the portal Azure comes up recommendation and such alerts.

    Is it because this feature is still a preview/coming soon?

  9. [Bug] [Updates] Multiple updates installation takes no effect.

    WAC 1906 preview
    Server Management
    module/tab: Updates
    Function Install-WindowsUpdates

    Multiple updates installation takes no effect.
    Single update installation works.

    In case of multiple selection of updates, the powershell "Install-WindowsUpdates" function, passes the parameter $updateIDs as single string to $Script.
    In efect, during execution of $Script - Install-Updates.ps1 line with check:
    If($Update.Identity.UpdateID -in $updateIDs)
    always fail and updates are not installed.

    WAC installed as gateway on Windows Server 2016 (OS Build 14393.2969) - connected to domain
    WAC version 1906 preview

  12. .iso files Should be allowed when creating new VM

    In the "New virtual machine" pane, the "Operating system" section, check the "Install an operating system from an image file (.iso)" then enter a path to an ISO file.
    You get a red error message "(!) .ISO files are not allowed"
    This is, by all means, a bug.
    Please fix.

  14. [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.

  15. [ui] add PowerShell hints to the various user interfaces

    Since all of the Honolulu output is based on WMI and CIM calls executed through PowerShell, it would be useful to have a link in the right hand pane (perhaps the details pane) that will expose what commands were issued to gather the displayed information. This supports PowerShell's goal of ease of learning and discoverability. You use Honolulu to execute one management task against one machine, learn the PowerShell, and you can execute the same task against as many machines as you want.

  16. [Bug] [Virtual Machines] VHD files case sensitivity

    File extension validation is case sensitive. Install Hyper-V Management.

    Tools -> Virtual Machines -> Inventory -> New

    Set up new parameters

    Add Disk -> Use an existing virtual hard disk

    Give a virtual hard disk with a .VHDX extension, there is an error saying that .VHDX files are not allowed.

    Rename the VHD file from a .VHDX extension to a .vhdx extension. The file can now be used as an existing disk for the VM.

  19. Font rendering: Non-Latin scripts are rendered poorly

    Windows Admin Center renders text using the Segoe UI font. This font is beautiful and rich. It can render a number of scripts including Hebrew, Arabic and Greek. However, for some reason, in Windows Admin Center, only Latin-based scripts are rendered using the Segoe UI font. Other scripts like Arabic, Hebrew and Greek fall back to "Helvetica". As a result, managing files with non-English characters in the file manager of Windows Admin Center is a harrowing experience.

  20. [Bug][Files]Quota management

    In this page:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/it-it/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/manage-servers#span-data-ttu-id08651-253filespanspan-classsxs-lookupspan-data-stu-id08651-253filesspanspan

    quota management is listed as a feature of the Files panel.
    However, at least in WAC version 1809.5, I'm not able to access the quota management feature from "Files".
    Where is it?

    Cheers

    Marco
