  3. Credentials 'Manage as' not saved

    Credentials "Manage as" which are entered at a connection are not saved. When I restart the session to WAC, the credentials must be entered again.
    I use WAC from my client computer, which connects to the Gateway. I would like to use my admin account for connecting to the machines. WAC always uses my personal non-admin account per default.

  4. Powershell and RDP SSO for Gateway Mode

    Currently when deploying Windows Admin Center in Gateway Mode, Extension tools such as Powershell and RDP do no support SSO experience(even with RBCD). Manual Authentication is a Must to get access to this Tools. This becomes a Show stopper when using Smart Card Authentication, as password prompt doesn't offer Smartcard login.

    One would expect SSO for all tools however the expected behavior should be a Prompt that supports Smart based based login instead of Password.

    Can this be added as a feature update?

  6. Allow CAU in WAC without Self Updating schedule

    It would be great if I could use the CAU feature in WAC without setting an automatic schedule in the Cluster Self Updating feature.

  7. [Multi-machine] Compare option to compare two servers

    Make a split screen option to compare two servers in one window so that I can have firewall rules or reg entries, etc pulled up on one server and reproduce them on another in one screen. Bonus points if you can select something on one and tell it to replicate itself to the other server.

  20. [Roles and Features]

    When installing a new role, some kind of status would be helpful. I am trying to install IIS and after I hit the install button, I don't know if it's actually doing anything.
