  1. Feature Request - Add new parameter to New-Cluster and Add-ClusterNode cmdlet to ignore ICMP/Ping validation

    When creating a cluster or adding a new cluster node using ClusAdmin.msc or Powershell (New-Cluster, Add-ClusterNode), there is a requirement that ICMP/Ping validation to the server(s) must be successful. If ICMP/Ping traffic is blocked to the server(s), the cluster cannot be created, or the server cannot be added as cluster node.

    To support customers setting up cluster nodes in different datacenters with ICMP/Ping traffic blocked, please consider adding a new parameter to ignore ICMP/Ping validation in New-Cluster and Add-ClusterNode cmdlets in currently supported Failover Cluster versions.

  2. Better GUI for Creating Cloud Witness

    Currently the Cloud witness needs storag account name and key.
    But Why not taking the GUI options from SQL and make this selectable connect to the azure subscription and from there create or select the storage account.

    Or make an advanced option that does the simple key input and the other by a GUI as SQL uses to create Azure VM's

  3. Manage failover cluster VM replication using Powershell.

    Currently even if VMs are created and managed in Failover Cluster Manager, and the GUI supports managing VM replication, there is no corresponding Powershell commands to manage at the Cluster level. Therefore you need to call each host server to initiate a replica failover.

    It would be great to be able to use Powershell to manage VM replication for all VMs in the cluster with one script. This would be especially useful for cluster to cluster VM replication where the VMs can move around from host to host.

  4. Allow for Powershell Generic Script Resources on WSFC

    Please build Powershell support for WSFC generic script resources. VBS is no longer a viable, nor easy way to program these. Shouldn't be too hard :)

  5. Telemetry Catch all service Windows server 2016

    As Telemetry is important to Microsoft and not all servers are connected to the internet. Handy would be if there is a catch all services like the old days. With WER Windows Error Reporting and Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program redirect all info to a catch all server log this in a DB and change company name and then send to Microsoft.

  6. Provide a UI for Anti-Affinity ClassNames (AACN)

    We are missing a simple UI from the Failover Cluster Manager console to identify VMs that should not be hosted on the same cluster node. Preferably with a drop-down (of existing AACN) to avoid typo’s when entering AACN. I consider this basic functionality which should be exposed in the UI.

  7. Windows Containers cluster options

    Add an column or place in the Summary a tag this VM has xx Containers. So you can take care of this VM when doing a failover/LM or set special options. Like the replication column
