  1. [Events Module] Improvements on the Events module


    1. I'd like to have the "administrative events" custom view available.

    2. Also I'd like better filtering for the events (much like the filter options in the event viewer mmc)

  3. [Events] advanced filtering

    The events list should allow more advanced filtering.

    For example, support for existing XML filters created with existing Microsoft Windows Event Log viewer.

    If WAC uses powershell Get-EventLog, then expose at least the ability to filter with the same functionality it provides:
    * [-Newest <Int32>]
    * [-After <DateTime>]
    * [-Before <DateTime>]
    * [-UserName <String[]>]
    * [[-InstanceId] <Int64[]>]
    * [-Index <Int32[]>]
    * [-EntryType <String[]>]
    * [-Source <String[]>]
    * [-Message <String>]

    Steps to Repro:
    1. Install WAC Version 1809 (Build 1.1.1809.17002) on Windows 10
    2. Connect to a remote server running Server 2016
    3. Open the "Events" tool
    4. In the "Events"…

  4. [Multi machine] [Events] Search eventlogs across multiple servers

    The search for eventlogs is great, but I have a situation where I have 4 servers performing the same role (and for reasons made far above my head, we can't log to a database), and I'l like to search all 4 of their eventlogs at once.

  5. [Events Module] Save Events to EVTX

  13. [Bug] error events after adding a server which is also WAC gateway

    Version 2103 Build 1.3.2103.01006

    As soon as I add a server which happens to be the WAC to my connection list I am getting following error whenever I open WAC or refresh the webpage.

    Error: Connecting to remote server localhost failed with the following error message :
    The server certificate on the destination computer (localhost:5986) has the following errors:
    The SSL certificate contains a common name (CN) that does not match the hostname.
    For more information, see the aboutRemoteTroubleshooting Help topic.

    It looks like it uses the localhost instead of it's real servername while trying to connect.

  14. [Event Viewer] Show dump data

    In the 'Detail' pane the 'Dump Data' is not shown!
    Would be great to also have this information (some Events are useless without)
    If possible also as XML Views like in Event Viewer

    Thanks!

    Hi.
    For SQL AO scenario (where Windows Server clustering service is installed to nodes but disks are not managed by cluster service) disks (and volumes) are not anymore visible in storage view (and of course volumes are also missing from files view.

  20. [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…
