  3. [Local Users & Groups] [Rename] Can't change local administrator name.

    There is not a place to select the account you want, then properties, and then name change.
    There appears to be no way to change the local administrator name in the new Windows 10. Therefore the sign-in screen name remains generic name such as HPUSER. In older editions one could choose the account they wanted and its properties such as name.

  4. [Bug] I entered a host to manage with a UNC name (starting with \\) and now I cannot remove it from the list

    I am having trouble getting connected to any other host, and it my efforts to try different things, I added a host with \ in front of the name. It's in my list now, I can't connect to it, and I cannot remove it either. Hosts I added without starting with \ (which also don't work) can be removed.

  7. [UI] [Navagation] Easier way to move between machines in server manager once a machine is connected

    Easier way to move between machines in server manager once a machine is connected. I would be ideal to be able to select other servers from withing other machines management screens instead of having to select server manager then picking out the machine. It would also be great to have the ability to mange the replication of virtual machines.

  8. [Virtual Machines] Display vmNIC Port ACL (like Azure NSG)

    It would be nice to display the result from Get-VMNetworkAdapterExtendedAcl like an Azure network security group (nsg).

  10. [Feature request] Honolulu web UI should be available over IPv6

    Bind the Honolulu web UI to IPv6

    Current the Honolulu web UI is only bound to IPv4. It's therefore not possible to access it, and manage servers from IPv6 only systems.

  15. [Bug] [HA] Migrating service to another note should keep added connections

    I've installed WAC as a Highly Available role as per the instructions from Microsoft. When I migrate the service to another node in the cluster, it wipes away my added connections and resets WAC like it is installed for the first time.

  16. [Connections] [Add Connection] Validate Button on Add Server

    In this moment there's a big lag when the user insert the server name because every single letter run the discover into the network. To avoid this is better add a button called "Validate" to use only when the full machine name is inserted.

  17. [Local users and groups] Allow multiple users to be added to local groups

    I have several service accounts and users to add to the local Admins and other groups on various servers. It would be nice if we could add multiple users using the ";" or even better, autocomplete names when typing in a domain user like for example, SharePoint.

  19. [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.
