  3. [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.

  4. [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.

  5. [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…

  7. [Remote Desktop] On Remote desktop replace "Disconnect" with "Sign Out"

    I saw that in Remote desktop connection I have options for press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and Disconnect. I am sure, that a lot of administrators are always using Disconnect for end their sessions and I am also sure, that would be better to use Sign Out. For this reason I propose to replace Disconnect with Sign Out. Is more secure and better for all administrators.

  8. [Installation] Domain Controller

    I do not see a reason why installing is not possible on a domain controller. I have a single Windows Server 2016 running that has the essentials role enabled and it would be nice to manage this one through the new web interface.

  11. [Updates] Windows updates should not show hidden updates

    A Windows update that was hidden using the WU interface on the server still shows up in the list of available updates in Honolulu. These should be hidden there, too.

  13. [RDS] Don't forget about RDS managment

    You should of course implement all MMC consoles in Honolulu but please don't forget RDS management.

    I hope in few years this will be better than IDEAL Administration software.

  17. [Firewall] Disable/Enable firewall

    Would like to be able to toggle the status for the firewall. Right now I can see whether the firewall is enabled/disabled for each profile, but I can't actually change that setting. I also can't enable firewall logging from Honolulu

  18. [Firewall] Windows Firewall - Show active rules

    Provide (missing) view to display the current/active Windows Firewall rules. (On par with the "Monitoring" node in the Windows Firewall MMC snapin).

    The view must include "SourceType" to show the origin of a Windows Firewall Rule (specific Group Policy vs Local setting).

  19. [Connections] Allow a server to add itself to honolulu

    Servers can currently be added one by one or through importing a list. Why can't Honolulu scan AD or have an API call that allows a server to be added?

  20. [Bug] [RBAC] Unable to connect to server using an account with RBAC privileges without authenticating twice

    When signed in to Windows Admin Center using an account that is in one of the Windows Admin Center RBAC groups for a server, the "Manage As" button has to be used to select "Use another account for this connection" and authenticate again. If the user does not click "Manage As" to authenticate again, they will be unable to connect to the server.
    I would propose that Windows Admin Center should allow the user to connect to the server without requiring the user to authenticate a second time.
