  2. [Containers] Containers in Service Fabric

    As Service Fabric stops the docker service and runs it as a process, I'm unable to visualize containers that run in Service Fabric clusters, even though docker is accessible.

  5. Manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension

    Ability to manage Windows Docker Swarm from Container Extension. The current container extension only allows management of containers on an individual server. It would be good to manage containers in a Docker Swarm, services, secrets etc.

  6. [Container] run docker.exe in hidden console window

    Console window (docker.exe) pops up multiple times when using Containers extension.

    I am using Windows Admin Center in Windows 10. Windows Admin Center runs on my administrator account.

    AFAIK it is possible to run such commands in hidden console window.

    I could not attach video file to post because 500 error. Will put in OneDrive.

  19. [Bug] [PowerShell] Windows Admin Center - The Powershell Tool fails when the HOMEPATH leaf contains a space.

    I can connect to a Windows 10 workstation where the user's HOMEPATH leaf contains a space (\User\Super Computer). When the Powershell Tool is selected and the password is entered at the prompt the following error is returned;
    Connection error! A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'System.Object[]'
    [Connection Closed]
    [Session End: click 'Connect' to reconnect.]

    Connection to other users and using the PowerShell tool works as expected.
