  1. [Files] Free space column for files tab

    Would it be possible to add a column to the files tab where it could show rapidly the free space available on the volumes instead of going to properties.

    Thanks!

  3. [Storage] Dynamic disks not visible

    Hi.
    Today we observed that in Server Manager ( modern, since Windows 2012) remote server diks are not visble if they are converted to Dynamic Disks. Trying to use WAC as helper discovered tht it also didnt show Dynamic Disks. I understand that using Storage pools is suggested, but people still have old fassioned storage and probably also use it on new servers ( since nobody blocks it) and later wonder where it is...

  5. Windows AdminCenter 1804 TLS configuration

    Just installed Windows AdminCenter 1804 and checked the TLS configuration. Unfortunately TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 is offered, as well as weak ciphers such as DES-CBC3-SHA, RC4-MD5 and others.

    Not only should security priority on a server management tool, but also it just doesn't make sense to me, to offer TLS1.0 if only Edge and Chrome is supported as a browser.

    Hence my suggestion would be to enable only TLS1.2 with a limited set of ciphers, such as ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256 and ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384.

  7. [Feature Request] [WSL] Add a WSL shell capability

    Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is now officially supported by Microsoft on Windows Server 2016 and 2019 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-on-server)

    Therefore, could we have a link to launch it "à la Powershell", or have the possibility to swap shells when entering in a Powershell session (i.e. Azure CloudShell).

    Hope this makes sense :)

  11. Windows Admin Center 1809 Set-RemoteDesktop bug

    This function may cause errors in non en-us environments (eg. ja-jp environment).

    function Set-RemoteDesktop {

    ...
    
    Enable-NetFirewallRule -DisplayGroup 'Remote Desktop'

    }

    If this problem is affected, click "Save" bottun in "Settings > Remote Desktop" page and the following error will be displayed because the group name is not 'Remote Desktop', but 'リモート デスクトップ' in ja-jp environment.

    "No MSFT_NetFirewallRule objects found with property 'DisplayGroup' equal to 'Remote Desktop'. Verify the
    value of the property and retry."

  19. [Bug] Unexpected error with Azure Update Management integration

    When opening the Updates tab of any managed system we receive the following error when WAC attempts to query if the system is managed by Azure Update Management:
    Unexpected error occurred while detecting Update Management setup: n is null

    All of the systems managed by WAC in our installation are registered with Azure Update Management.

    On navigating to the Updates page a pop-up appears for authenticating to Azure AD which does appear to succeed. If we use browser developer tools to monitor the network traffic we can see the GET request to login.microsoftonline.com return a 302 response with a response…

  20. [HCI] Don't round IOPS counters to nearest integer; display 1-2 decimals points

    When you're dealing with "IOPS in the Millions", rounding up to an integer really skews performance views.

    Example - hitting 1.6 million IOPS rounds to 2M IOPS in WAC. That 400,000 IOP rounding error is HUGE. If you at least do 1 or 2 decimal points, the problem fixes itself :)
