  2. [Credentials ]Login page with SSO button (+ User Management)

    Gives the possibility to login in with an admin account, if you are working with an normal account on your computer.
    Also you should be able to restrict access to i.e. an AD group.

  11. Support for Extended Protection for Authentication

    Does Windows Admin Center support Extended Protection for Authentication? I have been unable to find any documentation on this scenario but with the increased prominence of MitM and credential relay attacks, support for EPA would I expect be of interest to many customers with strict security requirements. Given WAC is likely to often be authenticating privileged accounts this makes EPA support particularly valuable as an additional safeguard against credential theft.

  12. Performance Live Chart

    Hi,
    I have installed windows admin center to test it, all is working but if I try to check live performance chart of a VM on a Hyper-V 2016 host in cluster, the charts are empty and I receive this error:

    Error
    There was an error getting the performance live chart data for NAMEOFTHEVM. Error: RemoteException: Failed Activity ID: {f76b827b-f347-4d0e-8592-368d071d103e}.

    The host performance live charts works and all the other things seems working.
    I have this problem on all the 2016 hosts of the cluster.

    Best Regards
    Alessandro

  13. [Storage]

    [Storage] [Functionality] In Storage\File shares\Edit Share\ the Folder permissions are shown and managed instead of the Share permissions. Adding a Group or User will result permissions on the Folder instead of the Share. Should Folder permissions not be managed here?

  16. Add a widget that show all monitored server dive status (%used, %free, health, etc)

    It would be great to have all of my monitored system vitals displayed in one pane, rather than poking around server to server to identify them.

  18. [Remote Desktop] - Hangs/continuously loading

    I've setup WAC on a server and added all the servers but am unable to remote desktop onto any of them.

    I have tried this on both a completely separate Workgroup setup and a domain setup but both have similar issues.

    Every other server management section that I've tested works fine. I've also tested using EnterPSSession from the WAC server -> a target server and that works.

    Totally out of ideas, the trust configuration is configured to correctly handle the servers and my account has full admin to everything.

    Anyone got any ideas?
    Since both my workgroup and domain setup…

  20. [Deployment] Windows Admin Center - Allow Install on Domain Controller (Lab Testing)

    Please allow Windows Admin Center to be installed on a domain controller. This is needed for training, lab and testing scenarios. The current MSI package blocks this.

    Yes, it is well understood that extra or unnecessary services should not be installed on domain controllers, no one doubts this, no need to debate or rehash it here -- but this choice should be left up to the org, it should not be an artificial restriction imposed by the Admin Center installer.

    Yes, everyone is aware that it can be installed on another VM for lab testing or training, that this would…
