Clustering

  1. Manage unclustered Servers at once

    When several unclustered Servers have been added to the WebAdmin, it would be practical to be able to manage several Containers at once (e.g. install Updates and restart 100 Containers with one Command; distribute files across Servers; change Firewall Settings globally)

  2. Failover Cluster Manager should should storage Migration progress

    Storage Migration shows progress percentage in the Hyper-V Manager, but not in FCM, Showing a progress in FCM makes sense.

  3. Automatic consistent naming of CSV object and ClusterStorage path

    When you rename a CSV object for descriptive purposes, it should plumb that name all the way down automatically to the file system at c:\ClusterStorage\Volume1 and change the corresponding volume name to match the name of the CSV. This is important because you could have many CSV with different I/O patterns in S2D cluster. And knowing which folder to create the VHDX file in for I/O purposes is important because we have to specify a path in the new-vhd command.

  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. Node fairness requires customizable time interval

    Currently, the interval for “AutoBalancing” with "Node Fairness" is non-configurable and will happen every 30 minutes.

    I would like to see a way to customize the time interval and also provide a way to (manualy) invoke the balancing mechanism.

  6. 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.

  7. rolling upgrade support for 2008 r2 cluster

    I seen that there will be a rolling upgrade feature with 2016 that will support upgrading a windows 2012 r2 cluster to 2016 with no downtime. Could this functionality be extended to include upgrades from 2008 r2 clusters?

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Cluster Patchmanagement

    i think its a good wish to create intelligence for Patchmanagement for Cluster Ressources. Example Hyper-V Hosts.
    If you have 4 or 5 Hosts with a specified Patchlevel. And if you want to add a new Host to Cluster. You must activate CAU or something else. CAU checks all Host and every Host must go to Maintanance Mode. I think its better when Host will check if updates needed then put Host in MT. If not leave these Host go to next.
    So Patchmanagement will be fasterMode. I think its better when Host will check if updates needed then put…

  12. Subfolder Cluster Roles with ACL

    AS the Cluster Sizes are getting bigger the Roles list are getting longer. And yes you can make Querys for better listing. But with Subfoldering the roles and the option with and Access list on this would be great.

  13. More information in the Failover Cluster Manager

    Make the Roles listing bar more flexible with more options, currently there is name,status,owner,but as the measurement is all ready there Why not the used IOPS and other options as the querys but than listed behind the roles information tab

  15. Allow for a more robust configurations

    For example:

    *) A/A groups.

    *) "Not" dependency for resources that should avoid being on the same node.

    *) Dependency between clusters or groups.

  16. Cluster Validation Report improvements

    From my experience the success of the cluster validation may depend on the network between the Failover Clustering Console and the actual nodes. In my case Active Directory Configuration Validation was failing (while everything else was successful) because of the WAN accelerator messing up communication between the machine with the console and the validating cluster nodes (which were being validated across the WAN). Besides, I also noticed that the longer the latency between the console machine and cluster nodes, the longer it takes to deploy a cluster. If these tests could be refactored to be executed locally on each individual…

  17. Allow SoFS clusters to turn on and function without the need to first see AD.

    This would allow for running an entire domain infrastructure virtually via Hyper-V over SMB without having to worry about storing a DC on storage that doesn't require AD to turn on and function or having to maintain a physical DC. This is the only issue keeping me from totally replacing my SAN infrastructure with a SoFS cluster. In regards to VM VHDs, the only ones that I have remaining on my original SAN devices are those of my DCs.
