Currently, in Cluster interface there is no way to add node, evict node, change witness mode or even generate/view Validation Report.
Suppose, Honolulu targeted to replace legacy tools? Well, MMC FCM is so outdated, than most clustering functionality accessible only thru PowerShell. Donno, why at least this old "still used by everyone" tool functionality still don't exported to Honolulu, before anything else.18 votes
installing Windows Updates (from internal WSUS) on Failover Cluster Nodes using Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU) would be very helpful16 votes
Cluster-Aware Updating has been released in preview with Windows Admin Center 1809
Please provide RBAC feature when manage cluster through Windows Admin Center.
We are using Hyper-V clusters with SOFS clusters.It is not proper to use local or admin when we try to deligate different admin role to different operator, such as Hyper-V admin, SOFS admin, Backup admin, CAU admin.
It will be good to have these RBAC in cluster level and just apply to the cluster,no single server.1 vote
error while accessing disk from failover clusters
Failed to fetch the cluster disk information. Error: RemoteException: Cannot validate argument on parameter 'Version'. The "5.0" argument do3 votes
In Failover Cluster Manager, the Disks panel shows the disk name but not the mount point and the Virtual Machines panel shows the VHD's path, but not the Cluster Disk name. It's not possible to cross information. It would be very useful to have the mount point on the Disks panel and the Cluster Disks names of the VM resources.14 votes
When open Virtual Machine tab of some cluster in Failover Cluster Manager displayed correct number of VM while refreshing and collecting data. Then count of VM changed and show incorrecty number - in Total on Summary tab. And incorrect list in Inventory tab.6 votes
We’ve made some improvements in Windows Admin Center Preview 1806 update. Can you try this build and see if there’s still an issue? Thanks!
Please add support for CauPluginName Microsoft.Hotfix.Plugin to allow for other updates like drivers, firmware and BIOS to be installed from WAC Updates just as you can from CAU.11 votes

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.2 votes
Currently it is not possible to add disk to CSV using the Failover Cluster solution. So you have to use Failover Cluster MMC or PowerShell.
Please add the functionality to manage CSVs in the Failover Cluster solution.1 vote

Admin Center error "Unable to create 'SDDC Management" cluster resource'
All Servers are build 14393.2214 GERMAN
Server logs error:
PowerShell-Cmdlet "Add-ClusterResource" für Failovercluster: Fehler beim Öffnen der Clusterrolle "Cluster Group".
So this may be a language issue...
How can I create the resource manually?1 vote
This is fixed in Windows Admin Center Preview v1806.
In v1804, this workaround should resolve the issue:
Run Add-ClusterResource -Name ‘SDDC Management’ -Group ‘Cluster Group’ -ResourceType ‘SDDC Management’ replacing ‘Cluster Group’ with the localized name, for example, ‘Group du cluster’ in French.
Unable to fetch the cluster nodes. Error: RemoteException: Cannot validate argument on parameter 'Version'. The "5.0" argument does not contain a valid Windows PowerShell version. Supply a valid version number and then try the command again.4 votes

Now, you can's initialize new disk for cluster using FCM. You must use either MMC, or RSAT Server Manager (SM) or PoSh.
You can't add initialized disk to cluster-available using MMC.
You can't create volume on cluster-storage using FCM.
You can't re-format available disk using FCM.
You can't remove volume using FCM.
You can choose all dedup options only using PoSh.
You can do CSV-repair only using PoSh.
You can't do almost anything using Honolulu 1802. Please, add full management. Please, do it before adding S2D back to next semi-annual Server Core release.13 votes
I am currently building and running S2D Cluster (4 Nodes) and enabling CSV Block Cache (per Volume assign 10GB), is it possible to see the usage status of CSV Block Cache in Honolulu, and that each VM virtual host benefits from CSV Block Cache in Honolulu.5 votes
Admin Center shows only subset of virtual machine roles actually deployed in a cluster in Summary and Inventory section. This is true for both 2012R2 and 2016 Clusters.2 votes
This should be fixed in Windows Admin Center Preview 1806 update. Please try it out and let us know if you still see issues. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/06/19/announcing-windows-admin-center-insider-preview-1806/
