  1. [WAC] Can't connect to domain joined Windows Server version 2004

    WAC can't connect to domain joined server using hostname/FQDN/IP. I am however able to connect to this same machine using Powershell/Hyper-V/RDP. Server is Windows server version 2004.

  2. This UI is so flat ! Improve visual aspect, use colors and graphics !

    Doesn't Microsoft have enough money to pay color screens to its developers ? ;-) Why is the UI using only two colors (black, white, and a little bit of blue) ?

    The good old MMC snapins use a lot of icons, colors, graphics, which allow to distinguish things visually and rapidly.

    If you want to develop a new admin tool, it has to be (at least) as good as the old one. This UI is terribly flat, with lots of things with the same color. This is a severe drawbacks for engineers who highly rely on "visual" aspect and ordering…

  3. Storage Migration Service : Option to remove destination server's original hostname from AD

    I've found it would be helpful to at least have an option to remove the destination server's hostname from Active Directory after the cutover phase is complete.

    Every time a migration is performed currently, the old hostname would have to be manually pruned from Active Directory to make sure it didn't linger around needlessly. The option to do it automatically (if possible) would save a step in needing to do that, if it was needed at all, helping to make the migration more seamless.

  4. Storage Migration Service : Phase 2 (Transfer Data) clarification for configuring IP/Network settings

    During the IP/Network settings migration step of phase 2, the exact process of IP assignment that will on cutover is not very clear.

    This step doesn't make it clear whether the current source IP will be taken over by the destination or will the destination IP be overridden by the option to enter a custom IP? I think clarification via different wording or a different menu to transfer or configure IP settings would help this possible confusion.

    For example, make it clear exactly what network settings the source server will end up with after migration and make it clear exactly…

  5. Storage Migration Service : Add an optional "Transfer Differences" button AFTER cutover phase

    The "Transfer Differences" button to do a delta copy between source and destination servers is integral to this service.I'm proposing to add an additional/final "Transfer Differences" kind of button after the cutover phase to catch any active data that may not have made it from source to destination.

    My concern comes up when the delta copy takes a long time to happen (multiple hours to 1 day+). If a maintenance window is setup to perform a cutover, it has to be planned around allowing a "transfer differences" job to run for however long it needs before doing the cutover phase,…

  7. 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

  13. [Roles] Printing Roles prerequisites check misses on Server Core

    Affects: Server SAC, Server 2016/2019 LTSC Core.
    Windows Admin Center 1910.2 or earlier

    Prereq check should add Fileserver as a Role when adding Printserver.

    Printserver cannot work without the print$ share and without Fileserver Role there cannot be $ or any shares.

    Also installing the role should actually create the share print$ because otherwise you run into the following issue by design:

    importing a print server backup is impossible unless adding a shared printer on the target. It will fail to install the driver. Message is irritating but eventlog gives a hint.

    If installing print role and fileserver role in…

  14. 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…

  16. [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!

  18. [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

  19. [Remote Desktop] F5 Refresh

    When using Remote Desktop in Windows Admin Center, I often refresh various screens on the target system I am connected to. However, pressing "F5" is intercepted by the browser which resets the WAC session, and I have to re-establish the connection and reauthenticate. Is this just a habit that I need to break when using WAC, or is there a technical solution be that can be implemented?
