    ctrl+c and ctrl+v would be very useful in the powershell window.

  10. [Security] [Harden] Managed/Auto Server Hardening (JumpBox/PAW)

    It would be nice to have a module for auto-hardening the servers for management by Honolulu ('jump-box' scenarios).

    This would entail locking down settings on the remote/managed servers like inbound Firewall rules, WinRM endpoints, protocols/algorithms, credential delegation, PS Transcripting, etc.

    The goal would be to harden the management channels used by Honolulu and ensure that they can only be accessed from authorised Honolulu gateways.

    Having a way to automated this graphically at scale would remove one of the major hindrances to finally killing the server UI and using Server Core everywhere.

  13. [storage] update-hoststoragecache

    On the storage page, the Disks page should include an option that triggers an Update-HostStorageCache on the on the machine being managed. Simply clicking the refresh circular arrow never does this.

    This is important if Honolulu is being used along side the vSphere management tools to enlarge disks. Without the Update-HostStorageCache, you can never see the new space, and thus can't resize the volume for your customer.

  15. [Files] - Visual representation of Free Space

    Using traditional RDP & Explorer you get a visual representation of the free space of a drive which is something I have grown very fond of. Currently you need to compare the free space with the total space to get a rough gauge in your head what percentage is actually free. I would suggest either removing the free space column and replacing it with a graph similar to what we see in explorer now, or at the very minimum add a (%) value for each free space entry so we can easily see oh its only 1% or 15% or…

  16. [Cluster] [FCM] More disk info in Failover Cluster Management

    In Failover Cluster Manager, the Disks panel shows the disk name but not the mount point and the Virtual Machines panel shows the VHD's path, but not the Cluster Disk name. It's not possible to cross information. It would be very useful to have the mount point on the Disks panel and the Cluster Disks names of the VM resources.

  18. [NEW Tool] Graphana Like Performance Dashboard for user Defined Performance Counters

    I would wish to have a Graphana Like Performance Dashboard for user Defined Performance Counters. So I could monitor the real-time performance of the remote systems with all the counters I need. Since today it is very hard to do a performance overview about different systems.
