  2. [Cluster] [CSV] Full CSV management cycle in one place

    Now, you can's initialize new disk for cluster using FCM. You must use either MMC, or RSAT Server Manager (SM) or PoSh.
    You can't add initialized disk to cluster-available using MMC.
    You can't create volume on cluster-storage using FCM.
    You can't re-format available disk using FCM.
    You can't remove volume using FCM.
    You can choose all dedup options only using PoSh.
    You can do CSV-repair only using PoSh.

    You can't do almost anything using Honolulu 1802. Please, add full management. Please, do it before adding S2D back to next semi-annual Server Core release.

  3. [Authentication] Restrict to Kerberos only

    Provide ability to use only Kerberos authentication for manage servers. We had all our admin accounts in Protected users and MMC consoles working fine, but WAC seems to be used only NTLM that less securely.

  6. [Services] Add Log On As column to Services management.

    We've had Description and Log On As columns in the windows desktop services applet forever. I oftentimes connect to a remote server and sort by Log On As to find our custom services (They run under a domain user service account)

  8. [Credentials] use default domain instead of requiring domain\username

    When I want to Manage my Computers and Servers as a different user I need to login with this other user. As the username I need to type in my username in domain/username format.

    It should be possible to login with only the username. Please let us use a default domain, maybe with editing files on the Windows Admin Center installation.

  12. [Certificates] Create certificate requests

    Allow the generation of certificate requests (for Local Machine\My store) from Honolulu. Cert requests should result in CSR being generated, at a minimum a Base64 encoded string displayed that can be copied to a provider (nice to have, download a .csr file). Then allow upload a .cer (completed certificate request) to complete enrolment. This would make certificate issuance much easier.

  16. [Files] Improvements on Files module


    1. I'd like to be able to select multiple files/folders for actions like delete/download

    2. I'd like to to be able to see the properties of a folder (or more if many are selected), specifically the total size

    3. I'd like to be able to see the NTFS permissions of a file or folder. It would be good if we could change the permissions as well.

  19. [Updates] [bug] no reboot with "restart immediately"

    If I choose "restart immediately", the server never reboots. If Ischedule the restart, the server reboots at this time, also if it's in the working hours.

    With choosing "immediately" I expect really immediately, not when windows thinks, it's the right time, maybe next year.
