  3. [Services] Highlight stopped services that should start automatically

    A highlight on stopped Services that are set to automatically would be nice.
    Maybe a separate view (Total Services, Services running, Services stopped but should be running, etc.)

  5. [PowerShell] Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session

    Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session. Currently if you are in a powershell session with a remote windows 10 machine, and you select another tool and then re-select powershell, your command history as well as your credentials are lost and need to be re-entered. This should persist through selecting other tools or you should implement a tabbed/blade UI similar to alt-tab environment on windows.

  8. [Remote Desktop] Allow /RestrictedAdmin feature in Remote Desktop

    Allow an option to enable the RestrictedAdmin feature for Remote Desktop connection. It should be done in a way that we clearly see which option is in use during the connection and a give us a way to turn it on/off easily.

  9. [Deployment] [Multiple gateways] Central Administration Hub - Allow Honolulu to connect to servers through another Honolulu Gateway

    For networks using NAT, allow adding a new server connection in Honolulu behind another Honolulu gateway.
    On this page (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/honolulu/honolulu#deployment-options), it would be a combination of the second and third illustrations of deployment options. One gateway would be on an isolated network and the other gateway, on a more accessible network, would be able to tunnel through the first gateway to get to the other servers.

  13. [Downlevel] [WMF] Remotely install WMF 5

    It would be nice to have some way to push the WMF5 bits onto a remote machine from the GUI, rather than just seeing "Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5 not installed"

  17. [Powershell] Copy/Paste Keyboard shortcuts

    ctrl+c and ctrl+v would be very useful in the powershell window.

  19. [Cluster] [FCM] More disk info in Failover Cluster Management

    In Failover Cluster Manager, the Disks panel shows the disk name but not the mount point and the Virtual Machines panel shows the VHD's path, but not the Cluster Disk name. It's not possible to cross information. It would be very useful to have the mount point on the Disks panel and the Cluster Disks names of the VM resources.
