  1. [Storage] Storage window doesn't refresh properly

    After resizing a volume on a disk and clicking the refresh icon, the space still shows as unallocated in the Disks display (even though the new size shows properly below in the Volumes display)

  6. [New tool] Hardware overview/inventarisation

    Since in Honolulu we have many ways to check some interesting stuff in modern way, why not do a step further? Allow as (finally) to generate modern-looking hardware report about hardware of selected servers (and PCs since v1711). CPU models, clocks, physical and virtual cores, memory generation, clock, size and module names, GPUs, network info, SAN info, local HDD/SSD/NVMe info. All in one operable and exportable (to XML or XLSX) format.

  8. [MSI] Overwriting TrustedHosts list value shouldn't happen

    If we allow Honolulu installation to modify the TrustedHosts list, it is set to '' and old value is overwritten. That's a bad practice. The user is not warned that old value will be removed. Also, '' means "I trust all computers" and many users will be probably unaware of security impact of that setting.

  15. [Devices] Hidden devices in device manager should not appear in Honolulu by default

    Honolulu currently shows "hidden" devices in the "Devices" view (i.e. Device Manager). For an MPIO volume, you see the pseudo-LUN as well as the physical LUNs. In Windows device manager, hidden devices (e.g. MPIO physical LUNs) do not appear by default. You have to enable the option to show hidden devices.

    I am requesting that hidden devices not appear by default in Honolulu Devices pane but that there also be an option to show hidden devices so that the user can view them if needed.

  20. [Identity] Just in time administration

    For a person who has a log in to the Windows Admin Center but has no permissions to manage servers by default, provide the role for 'just in time' access so that the person can request administrative access (either approved or automatically allowed, and be logged for auditing) for a period of time. At the end of the period the user no longer has administrative access to the server. This way users don't need to always be administrators of computers but only when they require access.
