  6. [PowerShell] Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session

    Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session. Currently if you are in a powershell session with a remote windows 10 machine, and you select another tool and then re-select powershell, your command history as well as your credentials are lost and need to be re-entered. This should persist through selecting other tools or you should implement a tabbed/blade UI similar to alt-tab environment on windows.

  9. [Services] Highlight stopped services that should start automatically

    A highlight on stopped Services that are set to automatically would be nice.
    Maybe a separate view (Total Services, Services running, Services stopped but should be running, etc.)

  13. [Downlevel] [WMF] Remotely install WMF 5

    It would be nice to have some way to push the WMF5 bits onto a remote machine from the GUI, rather than just seeing "Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5 not installed"

  14. [Deployment] [Multiple gateways] Central Administration Hub - Allow Honolulu to connect to servers through another Honolulu Gateway

    For networks using NAT, allow adding a new server connection in Honolulu behind another Honolulu gateway.
    On this page (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/honolulu/honolulu#deployment-options), it would be a combination of the second and third illustrations of deployment options. One gateway would be on an isolated network and the other gateway, on a more accessible network, would be able to tunnel through the first gateway to get to the other servers.
