  1. [Services] Implement a "Restart" button for services

    Currently there's only the option to stop or start a Service in WAC. Please add a "Restart" button. A PowerShell Cmdlet exists for this, so this should be no Problem.

  2. [Services] Highlight stopped services that should start automatically

    A highlight on stopped Services that are set to automatically would be nice.
    Maybe a separate view (Total Services, Services running, Services stopped but should be running, etc.)

  4. [Services] Add Log On As column to Services management.

    We've had Description and Log On As columns in the windows desktop services applet forever. I oftentimes connect to a remote server and sort by Log On As to find our custom services (They run under a domain user service account)

  6. [Services] [SNMP] Edit SNMP Settings

    I've added the SNMP Role & Feature, but when I try manage my 2016 Server Core installation via Honolulu - under Services, SNMP Service, Settings. I can only see the option to change the Startup Mode. I need to add our SNMP community (under the 'Traps' tab) & set the appropriate authentication under the 'Security' tab.

  11. Dashboard start page

    Allow IT admins create dashboard with select services, usage, status, etc on a page who grouped all the servers.

    It will help IT admin to have a quick glance on what´s going on the domain.

    Example. 10 host hyper-v cluster. Allow hyper-v role to be installed with default settings to all 10 hosts at once.

    Add the Failover cluster role to all 10 servers at once.

    Install file server services to multiple hosts at once, etc.

  13. [SMS] Migrate IIS (Internet Information Services 7.0 through 10) via Storage Migration Service

    In reviewing the Storage Migration Service at both MSIgnite this week, as well as in my demo lab, I've noticed that the Storage Migration Service does not touch traditional IIS configurations/workloads. This would be a fantastic value add for places that have done traditional deployment packages to an IIS website. Could this be added to a future build of WAC? We have roughly 100 Windows 2008 R2 servers that could immediately benefit from this feature. Thanks for the consideration!

  15. [New Scenario] Hosting/Managed Service Provider

    Please add a scenario for hosting service providers who are left with a very capability big gap between deprecation of Windows Azure Pack (WAP) and introduction of Azure stack. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of HSPs who want to continue DIY datacenter building using Windows and System Center 2016 but are left without a good control panel/management/self-service portal to provide the services to their tenants.

    While partners can develop RPs/Extensions similar to WAP, we do need a base framework to go from. Please enable this scenario.

  16. [Deployment] Windows Admin Center - Allow Install on Domain Controller (Lab Testing)

    Please allow Windows Admin Center to be installed on a domain controller. This is needed for training, lab and testing scenarios. The current MSI package blocks this.

    Yes, it is well understood that extra or unnecessary services should not be installed on domain controllers, no one doubts this, no need to debate or rehash it here -- but this choice should be left up to the org, it should not be an artificial restriction imposed by the Admin Center installer.

    Yes, everyone is aware that it can be installed on another VM for lab testing or training, that this would…

  17. [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.

  18. [WAC] [SERVICES] [ISSUE] Services Logon expects a password, not compatible with gMSA

    how to reproduce:
    select a Server 2016 / 2019
    select services
    select a service
    go to log on credentials tab

    Issue:
    it expects a password to assign a user account

    expected behaviour:
    When username contains a $ it should accept the creds without password so to support group managed service accouncts, as recommended for services by Microsoft Security since Server 2012

    Please allow to just enter a username without supplying a password

    Please consider to use Powershell 6 Core internally to use "Set-Service" instead of WMI or CIM objects.

    also refer: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295071-management-tools/suggestions/33637168--services-add-log-on-as-column-to-services-manage

  20. [Azure Registration] Register with Azure Government.

    In Windows Admin Center -> Settings, under Gateway, Azure there does not appear to be a way to Register with Azure Government. Not sure if you can register with any sovereign cloud. When using my MAG credentials I get AADSTS50011: The reply url specified in the request does not match the reply urls configured for the application.
