  1. [Powershell] remote powershell should exit when connection closes

    Steps to Repro:
    1. Install WAC Version 1809 (Build 1.1.1809.17002) on Windows 10
    2. Connect to a remote server running Server 2016
    3. Open the "PowerShell" tool
    4. Provide credentials for the remote PowerShell
    5. <do work>
    6. In PowerShell, run the command 'exit'

    Expected results:
    PowerShell disconnects and need to be reconnected.

    Actual results:
    PowerShell on the remote server properly exits as expected, but the console remains with a PowerShell console for the local machine.

    Likely Fix:
    Use PowerShell's built-in ability to run a command and immediately exit when that command completes, such as the command-line option "-Command" as…

  2. [Events] advanced filtering

    The events list should allow more advanced filtering.

    For example, support for existing XML filters created with existing Microsoft Windows Event Log viewer.

    If WAC uses powershell Get-EventLog, then expose at least the ability to filter with the same functionality it provides:
    * [-Newest <Int32>]
    * [-After <DateTime>]
    * [-Before <DateTime>]
    * [-UserName <String[]>]
    * [[-InstanceId] <Int64[]>]
    * [-Index <Int32[]>]
    * [-EntryType <String[]>]
    * [-Source <String[]>]
    * [-Message <String>]

    Steps to Repro:
    1. Install WAC Version 1809 (Build 1.1.1809.17002) on Windows 10
    2. Connect to a remote server running Server 2016
    3. Open the "Events" tool
    4. In the "Events"…

    3. Open the "Events" tool

    Expected Results:

  4. [Services] [SNMP] Edit SNMP Settings

    I've added the SNMP Role & Feature, but when I try manage my 2016 Server Core installation via Honolulu - under Services, SNMP Service, Settings. I can only see the option to change the Startup Mode. I need to add our SNMP community (under the 'Traps' tab) & set the appropriate authentication under the 'Security' tab.

  7. [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.

  12. [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.

  13. [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.

  14. [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.

    The volume 'MirrorREFSDisk3' is running low on available…

  15. [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.

  16. [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…

  19. [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.
