  3. DHCP lease list should show client name

    The DHCP lease list doesn't show the client name. This makes it very difficult to reconcile which clients have which addresses. The description field is commonly blank so it's a waste of time having this.

    It's a pity that you can't choose which columns to display.

  4. Suggest: Provide a clear error message rather just said ERROR

    Ex: I am creating reservation IP and the IP was created but I have create double same IP but the message just shown ERROR without any clear info of that error.

    Why not shows it is duplicate IP?

    Here the error while I am create duplicate reserve IP:

    Error
    Create a new DHCP scope address reservation

    3:17:04 PM
    Source
    Go to DHCP.
    Type
    Error

    Message
    DHCP scope address reservation creation failed. Error RemoteException: Failed to reserve IP address 10.1.3.169 for ClientID/ClientDUID xx-26-ab-xx-xx-89 in scope 10.1.0.0 on DHCP server ***..

  5. [UI] Do not show the tools if it does not apply to the particular server.

    Do not show the tools if it does not apply to the particular server.

    When a Domain Controller is not hyper-v host, I do not want to see tools like Virtual Machines and Virtual Switches.

    I would only like to see the tools that apply to the server, tools that belong to the installed roles and features. On a Domain Controller managment tools such as ADDS, DNS DHCP and a file server DFS and File and Resource management.

  6. Support non-Microsoft DNS and/or DHCP

    I know this is a bit of a stretch but being able to support some other DNS/DHCP solutions would be amazing. Perhaps this would be more of an avenue for an IPAM solution to add an extension.

  8. Cluster creation extension requires static IPs on trunk NICs

    When creating a hyperconverged cluster, I should not have to enter IPs on the NICs that I intend to use for the virtual switch. Allowing for a DHCP option everywhere an IP might be entered would solve this problem.

  9. Cloning VM in Windows Admin Center will not give unique MAC Address to VMs vNIC

    Cloning VM in Windows Admin Center will not give unique MAC Address to VMs vNIC. This makes it so if you clone it your VM(s) will have a bad time when trying to get a DHCP address. :-)

  11. [Feature] More Option in WAC for Hyper-V settings and VM Disk

    There are missing some options in Hyper-V role like


    • no option to enable SR-IOV on network card, DHCP Protection etc.

    • no option to set fixed size VHDX when creating VM

    For me its crucial not because i cant use powershell but because not only i menage server and not everyone know powershell like me.
    Of course you can use RSAT but it wont work if you force WinRM over SSL so i thin is very important to add this to WAC
