    Problem Description:
    When you edit a file, that is currently loaded in ISE (Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment), using an external editor or a version control system, you should be asked whether you want to relaod the file or not.

  2. AutoHelp with Get-Help and Advanced Functions - needs improving

    Regression: No, this is new to the most recent version

    Problem Description:
    I think the new auto-help stuff is fantastic. But it's a tad buggy and inconsistent.

    To demonstrate this, I've created a simle advanced function file (get-autohelp.ps1) attached. You will need to save this file then run get-help against it to see the errors I note.

    Here are the issues:


    1. You can not specify a .NAME section in auto-help. If you do, then the output…

  3. CTP3: Add Get-Computer and Start-Computer cmdlets

    Regression: Yes, this happens in all previous versions

    Problem Description:
    The new cmdlets added for control of local and remote computers (stop-computer, restart-computer, etc.) are great, but I think they would be complemented by the addition of the following two cmdlets:

    Get-Computer
    Get-Computer would return objects representing all computers on the network (workgroup or domain) including the local machine. It would serve a similar purpose as CMD's net view, however, the returned computer objects would contain…

  5. Make all cmdlet parameters accept scriptblocks

    Regression: Yes, this happens in previous released versions

    Problem Description:
    Some cmdlets accept scriptblocks for some parameters, while others don't. This is very inconsistent and confusing.

    On the one hand you can use this syntax for these examples: http://blogs.msdn.com/powershell/archive/2008/04/21/mindwarpingpower-cmdlets-scriptblock-parameters.aspx

    On the other, something like this would fail for no apparent reason:
    Get-DistributionGroup | Set-DistributionGroup -DisplayName {$_.name}

    This is actually (IMHO) a design flaw of PowerShell (unfortunately still present in v2 ) – you (if you…

  6. Convert Group Policy to use PowerShell DSC

    I think it's time for an overhaul of Group Policy and GP Preferences. You can still keep the GUI to allow everyone to have something familiar, but I would love to see if Group Policy can be converted to start using PowerShell DSC under the hood. I think this would make things much simpler in terms of deployment and wouldn't require logon/logoff or restarts anymore (unless you wanted a script to run at those times). For everything else like IE/Edge settings, registry settings, mapped drives/printers, desktop backgrounds and such I think having everything exposed in PowerShell would both make it…

  7. Server 2012R2 winrm https listener autocertificate reneval

    If you enable an https listener on a server and use it with an autoenrolled certificate, the listener will not be updated when the new autoenrollment takes place as the thumbprint will be hardcoded to the listener. This makes the technologie to use an https listener on all your servers to a big administrative burden as you have to keep the listeners up-to-date. Please develop some solution that this certificate will stay up-to-date with each new autoenrollment (like with a scheduled task which starts after autoenrollment scheduled task)

    Thanks

  8. Add Powershell/ISE to Taskbar by default

    As Powershell is the most common Management Tool on a server, please re-add the Powershell icon to the Taskbar. And also, make it possible to start ISE directly without first starting powershell once.
    First searching for it through the Start menu is a burden, especially when we deploy several of servers each day and need access to posh each time.

  9. Support text-oriented configuration management

    ... in a folder at C:\config containing text files (and perhaps a similar folder in the user's home directory). Changing those text files would directly apply changes to Windows settings. Services could read those files directly or use a Windows text-based configuration management API.

    Text-oriented configuration has many advantages: it makes devops-style workflows much more simple, entire server configurations could be versioned in git or svn along with the apps they host, spinning up new servers would be much simpler, and tools like Chef and Puppet would integrate far more smoothly and simply with Windows.

    I suggest this as a…

  10. Enable Kerberos pass-trough for nested WinRM sessions

    A second or third hop WinRM session should support the usage of the primary session's ticket if Kerberos delegation is enabled for WinRM. CredSSP is not always wanted or might be limited due to security policies

  12. Backwards Compatibility for cmdlets

    All new cmdlets only seem to support 2012+ however for those of us with a mixed estate means we have to use other methods for migrations than we do for live servers and would be really good if tools were backwards compatible.. rather than having to develop our own or rely on 3rd party alternatives.

  13. Migrate Sconfig.vbs to PowerShell

    With all Microsoft Tools going to PowerShell, I think it would be better for this config tool to be a PowerShell rather than VB Script.

  14. PowerShell Remoting using private key authentication

    Enable PowerShell Remoting login using private key authentication similar to the SSH protocol. Entering passwords all the time the log into remote PowerShell is tedious. Being able to use local secure private key to log into many cloud server instances would ease the process of creating new remote sessions.
