  5. [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.

  6. [Network] Ethernet rename

    I would like to have the ability to rename an Ethernet adapter just like i can in the GUI. For example, say i have a box with 2 ethernet adapters installed. One has Internet only access and the other has Intranet only access. I would like to change the names to be more specific such as Public and Private, etc ..

  12. [Network] [Bug] Refresh NIC names

    The Refresh button doesn't grab new names for renamed network adapters. It would be great if we could rename a NIC and have the new name show up.

  14. [BUG] Cluster Network Adapter Missing

    In Windows Admin Center for HCI, whenever I reboot a cluster node, the remaining nodes will report a warning that says "The server 'servername' has missing network adapter(s) connected to cluster network 'Cluster Network 1'."

    This warning will clear node by node during a reboot. But once I reboot again, the warning will come back until another complete cluster reboot.

  15. [Bug] Error when listing network adapters in virtual switch view if an adapter is disabled

    Hyper-V Host, running Windows Admin Center locally:

    I disable a physical network adapter on my Hyper-V host
    I then go to "Virtual Switches", select mit SET enabled Switch, click on "Settings"

    I get the following error:
    Couldn't load the network adapters of the host. Error: RemoteException: Es wurden keine MSFT_NetIPInterface-Objekte gefunden, bei denen die InterfaceIndex-Eigenschaft gleich "7" ist. Überprüfen Sie den Wert der Eigenschaft, und versuchen Sie es erneut.

    Workaround: enable all physical adapters on the host, then all network adapters will be listed

  16. [Chrome Browser] Admin Center Security issue: clicking "Sign in" when prompted allows login without entering input

    While using Google Chrome 69.0.3497.100. Clicking “Sign in” on the login prompt without entering anything allows anyone log into the Admin Center as “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON”

    Admin Center is installed on Server 2016 in the same domain as the client computer accessing it.

    Can this security hole please be fixed?

    Edge does not have this issue.

    I verified that these settings are set correctly to prevent anonymous logins on the server:
    Network access: Allow anonymous SID/Name translation
    Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts
    Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares

  18. FEATURE REQUEST - WAC 2012 preview - Network - NetAdapter-AdvancedProperties

    Affected build: Windows Admin Center 2012 Preview Build 1.3.2012.11003
    Plugin name: Networks
    plugin version: 1.95.0
    severity: -
    reproducible: x out of 5
    easy to fix: -

    please implement a tab on Network > Adapter > Settings
    showing and configuring the following:

    NetAdapter-AdvancedProperties

    Reason: unlike GUI servers where one can check the settings like RSS, RSC, Offloading Features, NUMA etc in Server Core it is not very handy.

    Please also include a brief overview of some features being enabled (or configuration issues) like


    • RDMA (iwarp / RoCE)

    • RSS

    • RSC

    • SR/IOV
      etc.

    It can be crucial to have a good overview on…

  19. [Multi-Machine] Please create consolidated view on the servers in Honolulu console

    Actually its possible to add different servers to Honolulu console to manage them individually. It would be great to have a consolidated view over all these managed servers regarding warnings, alerts, performance and capacity data with a drill down option into the affected server object.

  20. [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.
