  1. Connect As instead of Run As for RSAT

    With having spit accounts and multiple domains/forests to managed, it would be better to be able to run the RSAT using a connect as option instead of having to use run as

  2. Let us manage multiple servers with Server Manager

    Server Manager in 2012 is fairly limited if you want to add a role to a bunch of servers you have to do it one by one, considering this is just a PowerShell frontend it should be really easy to let us select more than one server and fire off the PowerShell command to them.

  3. Improve Server Manager so that new Roles/Features can be installed on multiple machines in paralell

    Currently you have to install new Roles/Features in Server Manager Machine after Machine. This is against the idea that Server Manager provides Multi-Server Management.

    Provide an option to install new Roles/Features to many Servers in one step.

  7. SConfig lacking IPv6 Options

    SConfig seems to be lacking an option to set IPv6 information. When you pick the option to set an address, you can enter a v4 and continue, but if you try to enter a v6, it errors. And otherwise, there is no option to configure a IPv6 address.

  8. [Identity] Just in time administration

    For a person who has a log in to the Windows Admin Center but has no permissions to manage servers by default, provide the role for 'just in time' access so that the person can request administrative access (either approved or automatically allowed, and be logged for auditing) for a period of time. At the end of the period the user no longer has administrative access to the server. This way users don't need to always be administrators of computers but only when they require access.

  9. [UI] Notice and Consent Banner

    A consent banner will be in place to make prospective entrants aware that the website they are about to enter is a DoD web site and their activity is subject to monitoring.

    DoDI 8500.01 requires the use of a standard Notice and Consent Banner and standard text to be included in user agreements.

    The requirement for the banner is for websites with security and access controls.

  10. [Network] [New Functionality] Network Monitor

    Add Network Monitoring capabilities within Windows Admin center that would display:
    - per process breakdown of network send/receive activity w/ PID
    - active TCP connections with local & remote port
    - remote connection address/resolve to dns
    This would be incredibly useful on server core installations where resource monitor is not available.

  12. [BUG] Cluster Network Adapter Missing

    In Windows Admin Center for HCI, whenever I reboot a cluster node, the remaining nodes will report a warning that says "The server 'servername' has missing network adapter(s) connected to cluster network 'Cluster Network 1'."

    This warning will clear node by node during a reboot. But once I reboot again, the warning will come back until another complete cluster reboot.

  13. [Virtual Machines] virtual host name

  14. [Deployment] Add Windows Admin Center MSI to Chocolatey

    A number of Microsoft tools are available on Chocolatey.org. Rather than just having the MSI downloadable from the Microsoft website, would be great if it was available for installation & update via chocolatey. WAC is an excellent tool & deserves the largest possible audience, and if we can get stuff like VS Code and SQL Server Management Studio via Chocolatey, why not WAC?

  15. [Connections] Edit connection info on Computer ID change

    When changing the computer name, it would be nice if the console would also save the new name instead of just changing it remotely. That way we can easily reconnect after the remote computer restarts.

  16. [Virtual Machines][PowerShell] Enter Session by VMName

    When using Windows Admin Center with Hyper-V, it would be nice to connect to VM's through the integration tools since the network may not be available. I would like Enter-PSSession -VMName to be supported instead of just network name. This would be especially useful on a lab workstation.

  17. [Updates] Updates for other products that show up in local update tool not shown in WAC

    Please allow option to install updates for other Microsoft products. For example on an Exchange server, October cumulative updates show as being available, but Exchange update does not show from Updates page in WAC, even though the option IS selected in the server. Had to login anyway to install the Exchange update this month.

  20. [Bug]Firewall Port

    What URL / Ports does the Extension Manager need to access. The server I have this installed on can only have access to specific URL's and ports. I would like to get any new extensions but cannot until I can get the specific URL's and Ports allowed on our external firewall.
