  1. [Gateway] Save user setting in the service instead of the browser

    Settings for Dark Mode, Console Settings, & other various settings should be saved for each user to the WCFS CSV for clustered setups. This way a user can have the same experience regardless of browser or computer used. Currently these settings are saved to local browser and it is a pain for users to resetup their configurations when switching browsers

  2. It would be nice if File Storage Migration tool would ACTUALLY WORK!!!

    The File Storage Migration tool sounds like an amazingly wonderful tool -- but the reality is that it WILL NOT WORK!!!

    I can't get it to do anything in any browser I've tried except to generate the following error, and keep spinning and spinning and spinning....... ad nauseam!

    Notification details
    Error
    RemoteException: The type 'System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal' is not supported for serialization or deserialization of a dictionary. Keys must be strings.

    5:16:09 AM
    Source
    Go to Storage Migration Service.
    Type
    Error

  3. [Issue] Inverted Graphs in Edge after switching tabs

    When you are in the overview on a system and you switch tabs in the new Edge Dev browser to any other tab then go back to Windows Admin Center all of the graphs are inverted. This occurs for any image including RDP windows.

  6. Direct Access and VPN role

    Well, I like the Admin Center, but I cannot manage the Direct Access and VPN Role on a 2019 Core server. Hope that's planned and will be available soon.

  10. WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records and does not recreate

    WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records (even static ones) and does not recreate. Primary and Secondary DNS servers get changed even though an error is thrown in WAC "Couldn't update IPv4 network settings..."

  13. Configure LAPS password as a "Lazy Property"

    When querying AD Computer properties, the field storing the password set through the Local Administrator Password Solution is displayed in clear text by any account with permissions. An administrator querying other attributes can inadvertently display the password. If this were set as a "lazy property" then the ms-Mcs-AdmPwd field would need to be directly specified before the password was displayed. This would minimize accidental display and logging.

  14. Support non-Microsoft DNS and/or DHCP

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but being able to support some other DNS/DHCP solutions would be amazing. Perhaps this would be more of an avenue for an IPAM solution to add an extension.

  17. Add user selection button for username box

    When I'm using mmc snap-ins every username box has a "browse" button beside it. So I'm able to select a local pc user or an active directory user. It is very hard to remember all user's credentials if there're hundreds of them.

  18. Printer Management Powershell enhancement

    Would it be possible to enhance the powershell cmdlets for Printer Management to include the "Export printers to a file" and "Import printers from a file".

    I believe this would allow for a script to be created to enable easy backup of the print server to include print queues, ports, drivers and forms.

    The ability to do this is easily available in the GUI, but without a Powershell cmdlet, I can't find a way to script it. (I could be wrong).

  20. audit permissions on fileshares with Admincenter

    It would be nice to have a way to audit or display the permissions of a fileserver with AdminCenter. Maybe pull the share/NTFS permissions into a PowerBI report so that the permissions can be drilled down on by group or user or directory path.
