  6. Windows Admin Center Extensions cannot be installed using standard user Windows Session

    Windows Admin Center installed on Windows 10 1909. Logged in with an account in Windows with standard user permissions. Right-click and run-as on Windows Admin Center and enter admin credentials. There is no process spawned running my admin credentials.

    Launching Edge or Chromium Edge or Windows Admin Center with standard user credentials will launch the page just fine, but I receive an error trying to install any extensions for the Windows Admin Center with error message "Couldn't install the extension: 'Active Directory (Preview)'. Error: Access denied. Unable to perform requested operation. Administrative privilege is required."

    The old version of Edge…

  7. [PowerShell] Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session

    Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session. Currently if you are in a powershell session with a remote windows 10 machine, and you select another tool and then re-select powershell, your command history as well as your credentials are lost and need to be re-entered. This should persist through selecting other tools or you should implement a tabbed/blade UI similar to alt-tab environment on windows.

  8. [Bug] [Workgroup] I'm seeing this message: "CPU performance class not found on this machine" and next Notifications

    I'm seeing this message: "CPU performance class not found on this machine" and "Memory performance class not found on this machine" and "Disk performance class not found on this machine" and "RemoteException: Invalid query".

    I use PC Windows 10 not in a domain but in a workgroup. I can connect all computers, but some of these errors will appear.
    If these errors are, neither Processes can be displayed.

    I tried to find out what was causing it.

    I've found that the problem is causing the .NET Framework 3.5. If it is installed on a remote computer.
    If the .NET Framework…

  9. [UI] [Global] [kiosk] Add Pop-out Window Option

    It would be great to have edge spawn new kiosk-like processes (no address bar, no menus, no tabs) for individual components. For example:
    * Monitoring Window for Overview, to be placed full-screen on a monitoring display
    * Pop-out RDP window for more real-estate and to allow us to RDP while browsing other pages/devices.

  11. [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.

  12. Improve the Admin Center update process

    The process for updating extensions in Admin Center is inefficient. I have to click each one individually; and the sort on the list doesn't even stay between updates

  13. Hyper-V Console

    Provide a virtual machine console, so that we can have Linux and pre-OS, i.e. Windows hasn't completed the boot process, access to virtual machines.

    In Honolulu, there is a “Connect” button for VMs which downloads an .rdp file to open as Remote Desktop Connection. This .rdp file uses a special configuration which uses RDP to connect to the HYPER-V host (not guest VM), then uses VM Connect to connect to guest VM. This should allow you to see the VM console through the Remote Desktop window and you should be able to connect to VMs for pre-OS setup, VMs running Linux or VMs without network connectivity. Please give it a try and let us know if there are still scenarios that don’t work with this!

  17. The ability to update multiple extensions at once

    Would be great if there was a tick box so you could select more than one extension at a time to update. Seems really time consuming to update one extension, then go back and do the next, then the next. When there are a number of updates, this sort of unnecessary repetitive process can kill 15 mins..

  19. Connect and save Performance Monitor Workspaces to a Git repo

    As part of our DevOps process, I am distributing preconfigured Performance Monitor Workspaces to a larger team. I would like to connect to a Git repo (we use Azure DevOps Repos) and save the workspaces directly to there.

    This would immediately do the work of creating a feature to sync between users. It would also immediately give version control of the workspace json files. Storing the files in the repo also creates the opportunity for an automation workflow such as automatically adding a web app to a workspace when a new web app is deployed.

  20. [Bug] Can't connect ti Hyper-V Converged Cluster

    I've installed Windows Admin Center with high availability following https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/deploy/high-availability.

    I can connect to nodes in the cluster fine through WAC, however when I try to add the cluster it says it can't find the name.

    If I click on one of the nodes it gives the FQDN of the cluster, I click it and it adds it as a connection but when I try to access it, it complains that WINRM couldn't not process the operation.

    I've tried it with two different clusters on our network.
