  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  8. 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.

  10. Windows update reboot

    Change the default from restart immediately to schedule restart as I installed some updates that said they didn't require a reboot to find the server then restarted anyway

  13. Add the ability to view previous PerfMon data captures

    The latest Windows Admin Center includes the ability to capture PerfMon data, but doesn't include the ability to upload and view existing data with a BLG or CSV through a saved Workspace.

    Over the years, my company has developed dozens of tools to automatically parse and allow for the slicing and dicing of historical PerfMon data saved as BLGs and CSVs to help troubleshoot customer environments. Allowing organizations to upload a BLG or CSV file that in turn displays the data using a Workspace template released by my company would save our organization significant time and help improve Windows Server…

    [Bug] In Windows Admin Center Preview 1908, if you install the Pure Storage Preview Plugin, it breaks the "Add" server functionality etc. Removing the plugin restores the affected functionality. Installing other plugins doesn't affect console functionality that I have seen.

  16. version

    Display the full build version of the host machine being managed in the Overview section. Currently, it just displays the major build revision of Win 10. It should also show the minor build revision that reflects the monthly cumulative update. For example, it currently displays 10.0.18362 when it should show 10.0.18362.476.

  17. Show UBR (i.e. patch version) in Server overview

    On Server 2016 and above the UBR shows the patch level. Currently (1910) only the build number is shown. Please show the UBR also, as this way will be easier to determine the patch level:
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" -Name "UBR"

  18. alias

    Would be helpful to have alias ability in the initial "connections" screen (list of added computers), instead of just the computer names only being listed currently.

  19. Danish "Regional format"

    It would be awesome if the Language Region followed my choice of settings in Windows. I'd like English language interface with Danish Regional format - the latter is unfortunately not supported.
