  2. [Updates] Install Option for Downloaded Updates

    The Windows Update Area do not show Updates which are downloaded but not installed. It is although not possible to install these Updates. It would be helpfull to show the downloaded not installed Updates. And a Option to install the downloaded updates would be perfect. Seen on managed Server 2012R2 and 2016 with WSUS Updates.

  7. [Updates] Windows updates should not show hidden updates

    A Windows update that was hidden using the WU interface on the server still shows up in the list of available updates in Honolulu. These should be hidden there, too.

  8. [Updates] Windows Updates Maintain State

    Allow the user to move to a new tab once the "Install Updates" button is pressed. Currently it resets the state as if the user hadn't told the server to install updates once the user changes servers or moves to a different tab.

  13. [Bug] [Updates] Multiple updates installation takes no effect.

    WAC 1906 preview
    Server Management
    module/tab: Updates
    Function Install-WindowsUpdates

    Multiple updates installation takes no effect.
    Single update installation works.

    In case of multiple selection of updates, the powershell "Install-WindowsUpdates" function, passes the parameter $updateIDs as single string to $Script.
    In efect, during execution of $Script - Install-Updates.ps1 line with check:
    If($Update.Identity.UpdateID -in $updateIDs)
    always fail and updates are not installed.

  14. [Update] Update Honolulu inside of Honolulu web interface

    Right now we have to go out and download the latest version of Honolulu and install. It would be cool to see an option, maybe inside of settings, to click search for and install updates for Honolulu.

  15. [Multi-Machine] [Virtual Machines] windows updates for VMs

    I can do the windows updates for each machine listed in my long list of servers but if I go to my HyperV server and see the list of VM's, I would like to be able to run windows update against those machines without connecting RDP into each VM and then running Windows Update

  19. [Feature Request] - Admin Center - Windows Update integration

    Because Microsoft does not provide any documentation on usoclient.exe, it is not (reliably) possible (useing PowerShell) to get clients to install updates (immediately), etc. (especially drivers provided by WSUS).
    Request: Admin Center integrated feature "WSUS" which makes it possible to retrieve pending Windows updates remotely, install etc. (similar GUI as in W10 itself, at least the same funktions LIKE LOKAL GUI!)

  20. [SCCM] SCCM Software Center

    For servers with a Configuration Manager client installed, it would be nice if software and updates that are available in Software Center could be managed through a node in Honolulu.
