  1. [New Scenario] Hosting/Managed Service Provider

    Please add a scenario for hosting service providers who are left with a very capability big gap between deprecation of Windows Azure Pack (WAP) and introduction of Azure stack. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of HSPs who want to continue DIY datacenter building using Windows and System Center 2016 but are left without a good control panel/management/self-service portal to provide the services to their tenants.

    While partners can develop RPs/Extensions similar to WAP, we do need a base framework to go from. Please enable this scenario.

  2. [Bug] [File] [Issue] All ISO image files are recognized as folders

    In my servers, All ISO image files are recognized as folders.
    For that, I can't assign image to VMs.
    I am convinced that this is a bug in Windows Admin Center 1804.

  3. [HCI] [S2D] My Volume has filled up - I need to migrate VM storage to new volume, don't make me use FCM

    My HCI S2D volume has filled up as VM disks grew. I am getting a critical alert in Windows Admin Center telling me I need to move files. To move files I need to do a Storage Migration for my VMs on the volume. I can not do this from inside WAC - I need to launch Failover Cluster Manager, pick a VM and do Move: Virtual Machine Storage. I would like to do this from within WAC.

    Alert:
    Volume MirrorREFSDisk3
    The volume 'MirrorREFSDisk3' is running low on available storage capacity.
    Details
    The volume 'MirrorREFSDisk3' is running low on available…

  4. [Credentials] Allow saving credentials, then explicitly stating 'use these credentials'

    PH requires re-entering credentials all the time. Some things might require different credentials, allow saving them and require explicit approval to use them. But one needs a way to have people use only the credentials they are allowed to use. Also need a way to set up 'limited-use' credentials and logins such that these logins or credentials use and work with only a subset of servers or a subset of functions, for example, Person X can see and work with all the servers and use the domain admin credential, but Person Y can only see/work with a few servers and…

  5. [Bug] Certificate private key not marked exportable after import

    When importing a new (wildcard) certificate using WAC, the private key on the certificate is marked as "not exportable" regardless of whether the "mark private key as exportable" box is checked during the import.

  6. [Connection list] Server Description Column on the "All Connections" page.

    A Server "Description" column on the "All Connections" page that is centrally managed within an organization so that an admin could give description text for each server within an organization.

    Since descriptions can take up a lot of column space, consider showing an "i" icon for each entry in the column (that has a description). When a user clicks on an icon next to that server, they will see the server's description in a SharePoint style callout popup or slide-out.

  8. [Bug] Possibly to enter restart time in the past

    I am able to enter a restart time in the past. For example, today I went to schedule some restarts as I started my work day. I checked for updates through admin center, and scheduled the restart time for 1AM without modifying the date. So the restart was scheduled for 1AM today, but it was already past that since it was 8AM. I cannot choose a date in the past, only the time.

  10. [Security] manage Local Security Policy

    Ability to manage Local Security Policy for a server, such as Log On As A Service rights for example. I know that some of it can be done with Group Policies, but for non-domain joined machines or machines that you don't want to create a domain Group Policy it would make it easier to manage. Especially the Server Core machines.

  11. [Multi machine] [Events] Search eventlogs across multiple servers

    The search for eventlogs is great, but I have a situation where I have 4 servers performing the same role (and for reasons made far above my head, we can't log to a database), and I'l like to search all 4 of their eventlogs at once.

  14. [Tagging] Allow deleting tags

    once tags are added, they cannot be deleted or edited in Windows Admin Center. I'm just able to remove the tag from the machine, but not from the console if I don't need the tag any more or want to edit it.

  19. [Updates] Install Option for Downloaded Updates

    The Windows Update Area do not show Updates which are downloaded but not installed. It is although not possible to install these Updates. It would be helpfull to show the downloaded not installed Updates. And a Option to install the downloaded updates would be perfect. Seen on managed Server 2012R2 and 2016 with WSUS Updates.
