  2. DNS extension sorting

    DNS extension should use numerical sorting for IP addresses instead of alphanumeric. For a long list of records, this is really confusing.

  4. [Network] Edit advanced settings in network

    So far, only IP address is exposed there, more settings would be very welcome.
    Including - but not limited to - Network Location, DNS Suffix, etc.

  5. WAC DNS extension should allow delegated permissions

    The DNS extension works pretty good, but apparently it needs the user to have permissions to connect to the server.
    I guess in multiple organizations, DNS permissions have been delegated so admins can work do stuff, without needing actual DA permissions.

  8. [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.

  9. [Bug] LDAP Connectivity Fails when AD and Gateway have different DNs

    WAC/Gateway Server: 1910.2

    Description
    Gateway server is located in a site of a corporate domain. When adding security groups AD or local it fails saying that the group was not found in the sub site. Example below

    Request:
    Allow modification of the LDAP settings or use the FQDN of the domain rather than accepting the domain name of the gateway server.

    Note: Please don't ask why it is configured that way or if I can change this. This configuration was in place long before my time and will not be modified.


    Example:
    AD Domain: na.corp.com
    AD NETBIOS Domain: (CORP)
    Gateway…

  10. [Connection List] Active Directory sync

    Great would be if you can define multiple OUs to connect to, where the computer objects are situated. So not only an import more like a synchronisation, so that if there are new computers added the list is up to date. And a folder browsing that reflects the OUs with some additional views like "All Connections", "Favorite Connections" and "Recent Connections".

    - hyper-v server with running guests

    or just a list of the roles if this information is unavailable

  15. Allow multi column view on DNS

    The default DNS it is horizontal column up and down but if it has vertical or multi column support it would be a good idea for IT admin

  17. WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records and does not recreate

    WAC 1910; changing network adapter DNS deletes A records (even static ones) and does not recreate. Primary and Secondary DNS servers get changed even though an error is thrown in WAC "Couldn't update IPv4 network settings..."

  18. 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.

  20. [Network] [New Functionality] Network Monitor

    Add Network Monitoring capabilities within Windows Admin center that would display:
    - per process breakdown of network send/receive activity w/ PID
    - active TCP connections with local & remote port
    - remote connection address/resolve to dns
    This would be incredibly useful on server core installations where resource monitor is not available.
