  1. WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and

    Connection Error: 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.

  4. [Bug] Dashbord not working when BaseBoardProduct is null

    Version 1910.2
    Build 1.2.2003.11001

    WAC fails to work properly when attempting to manage Windows Server 2016 running on ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2.
    When I look at the console, I see the following error, which I think is the cause.

    Type: RemoteException
    message: このオブジェクトにプロパティ 'Product' が見つかりません。プロパティが存在することを確認してください。

  5. [Network] [BUG] configuring an IPv6 / IPv4 Adress without DNS / Gateway

    It is not possible to setup IPv4 or IPv6 Addresses without specifying a Gateway or DNS servers.

    using :: doesn't work either.

    It should be possible to only assign a network address without a mandantory Gateway or DNS Servers just as in the GUI / sconfig.

    Usecase: cluster / live migration networks, internal networks

  6. [Hyper-V] [Design issue] Virtual switch does not show the used adapter

    tested in 1910.2

    How to repro:
    create a virtual switch
    view options of the virtual switch

    the output in WAC does not make clear enough which adapter is bind to the virtual switch, but gives you a rough list of all adapters available

    expected behaviour: Network interface should be a drop down field.

  7. [Virtual Machine] [BUG] Path of virtual harddisk is shown wrong

    How to repro:
    create a virtual machine
    select a path for the machine / harddisk
    The wizard shows the correct path for the virtual machine (config, smart paging etc) but the disk path shows the default for VHDX as setup on the Hyper-V Host

    Effectively the VHDX will be placed in the chosen path but does show the wrong path. Especially when selecting a CSV.

  8. Stop changing login credentials

    Sane admins aren't running with a user account with high privileges at all times. Thus we need to use WAC with different credentials. Yet every time we open it up it defaults to our logged-in credentials and you have to re-do the same steps over and over and over again to change to credentials.

    This has been ongoing for the entire life of this product. I would think this can get fixed without thousands of hours of effort needed. It's by far the biggest frustration with using WAC to me. Please fix this dumb issue finally

  9. Hyper-V Virtual Switch VLAN Management - Adding and Editing VLANs

    Currently, one needs to use powershell to tag vlans on virtual switches (unless they have system center), it would be convenient to be able do this via Windows Admin Center

  10. Copy Folders & Drag and Drop

    It would be great if the file manager in windows admin center supported uploading folders and not simply files. Also it would be really nice if you could simply drag and drop files and folders from you pc into the file browser in Windows Admin Center to upload them.

  11. Windows Admin Center 1910 and Install-WindowsAdminCenterHA-1907.zip includes Install-WindowsAdminCenterHA.ps1 unable to deploy HA

    Regarding the HA configuration, the following phenomenon has occurred and I feel that I can not deploy it properly.
    - HA configuration deployment is complete if there is no computer object for the cluster. However, the HA configuration cluster resource does not start because the computer object specified in the ClientAccessPoint option has not been created.
    -I create a computer object for the cluster, invalidate it, and deploy the HA configuration, the deployment fails.

    The prepared environment is as follows.
    - Windows Server 2019 English Failover Cluster
    It is a FailOver Cluster consisting of 2 nodes with a shared disk…

  13. [Storage]

    I have tried both ESXI and Hyper-V, it seems there have lots of improvement areas for Hyper-V or WAC just for a simple action: manage storage!

  15. [Feature] More Option in WAC for Hyper-V settings and VM Disk

    There are missing some options in Hyper-V role like


    • no option to enable SR-IOV on network card, DHCP Protection etc.

    • no option to set fixed size VHDX when creating VM

    For me its crucial not because i cant use powershell but because not only i menage server and not everyone know powershell like me.
    Of course you can use RSAT but it wont work if you force WinRM over SSL so i thin is very important to add this to WAC

  18. DNS extension sorting

    DNS extension should use numerical sorting for IP addresses instead of alphanumeric. For a long list of records, this is really confusing.

  19. [BUG] [Storage] [Resize Volume] Volume size will not be refreshed

    In addition to this issue stated here
    https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295071-management-tools/suggestions/37020679--storage-resize-volume-needs-use-all-available

    I am now seeing a new problem in WAC 1910 and 1910.2

    The volume size will only be refreshed once. Refresh button does not work for VOLUMES. It works for DISKS.

    how to repro:
    in hyper-v / VMware enlarge the a VHDX/ VMDK of the server
    connect to a virtual server via WAC
    Go to storage
    you will see the unallocated space on the disk
    resize the volume which has the unallocated space on the disk

    repeat increasing the disk size in Hyper-V / VMware

    press the refresh button on disks >…
