  1. Check the computers option by default in the object types dialog

    When adding objects to an Active Directory group, the Computers option is not checked by default. This will save a lot of clicks if that was checked by default.

  2. AD Visual Modelling

    It would be good to see the layout of AD domains, forests, servers and clients(?) as an additional role within AD services to allow a visualisation of the current AD structure.
    Similar to the SQL Database Diagram implementation within SQL Server software.
    Perhaps even an API could be made available to integrate it into documentation tools like Visio

  3. Download ADMX Templates no MSI but ZIP

    It would be great to have ADMX Templates not as MSI files but ZIP files, so you don't need to install it. Only extraction. Saves lot of time for me.

  4. DNS Conditional Forwarder and Delegation.

    Hi,

    To put it in a LAB scenario.



    Conditional forwarder site2.location1.country1.company.org cannot be created if the Forward zones has location1.country1.company.org -> "A problem occurred while trying to add the conditional forwarder. A zone configuration problem occurred."



    I delegate site2 under location1.country1.company.org pointing to external IPs - Successful.



    Now if i create a Conditional forwarder site2.location1.country1.company.org it gets created and works even if i delete the delegation done in step 2.

    I am not sure if this supported model, but would like to know this approach is documented anywhere? or i am wrong in understanding it.

    Thank you.

  5. Build ADFS 2019 Plug-in to allow user authentication requiring Azure MFA to be bypassed when internet access is down

    My company uses O365, AD FS 2016 and Azure AD, recently our internet provider had repeated outages where the AD FS servers access to the internet was compromised. This was a unavoidable outage for users on our internal network but since O365 leveraged Azure MFA in a CA policy external users could not get to O365 resources because they could not do MFA at ADFS. I want to create a plugin that checks for access to Azure MFA if it fails it places a default hardcoded claim in the token package validating MFA but raising a RIsk factor whtich will…

  6. Make DCPromo GUI available for demoting a DC

    Before removing the ADDS role the DC needs to be demoted to a regular server. The only way to get the link to the GUI is to create an error by trying to remove the ADDS role when you KNOW you cannot do so. Trying to do so will produce the error and the error message will give you the link.
    Isn't that kind of stupid? Why first make me do something wrong to get the link to do it right?

  7. Get-ADUser PasswordExpirationDate

    The Get-ADUser cmdlet should optionally return a "PasswordExpirationDate" attribute that is derived from "msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed" and shown in a friendly format.

    This is already done for PasswordLastSet from pwdLastSet and perhaps other attributes.

    Without this enhancement, we must parse and convert the time such as:
    $user = Get-ADUser -Properties msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed sAMAccountName
    ([datetime]::fromfiletime([int64]::parse(($user)."msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed"))).tostring()

    Or we resort to non-PowerShell tools:
    net user sAMAccountName /domain

  8. Change the default UPN for a domain

    With companies changing UPN's on user accounts due to things like O365 migrations, make it possible to change and set the default UPN used for new user creation in a domain.

  9. Change Get-ADFSAccountActivity to return all users in ADFS Activity database

    Change Get-ADFSAccountActivity to return all users in ADFS Activity database, like supporting a -All parameter. Then users can be searched using powershell of users that have triggered lockout or failed given amount of times. Currently users have to be retrieved one by one which is tedious at best

  10. Port Active Directory Module to PowerShell Core and Make Cross Platform

    Active Directory is used for more than just Windows Environments. Traditionally, scripting languages, such as python, have been used in the Linux space to perform automation against Active Directory. Now that PowerShell Core 6.0.X is GA, it would be great if the Active Directory module could be ported to be compatible with PowerShell Core and made cross-platform compatible. This would enable PowerShell based Active Directory management and automation possibilities from Linux, Mac, and IoT in addition to Windows.

    Currently, PSSnapin dependencies in the AD module make it impossible to use in PowerShell Core. This leaves AD as one of the…

  12. Set-GpPermission - Add a "Force" parameter

    The Set-GpPermission PowerShell cmdlet generates a prompt when attempting to remove the "Authenticated Users" permission from a GPO. There is no way to avoid this, which makes programmatic GPO creation very difficult. Please add a "-Force" parameter to avoid this prompt, or make the "-Confirm:$False" parameter also apply to this prompt.

  16. Specify primary authentication method per relying party

    Not being able to specify primary authentication method per relying party is something I run into all the time. Can you please fix this? More and more vendors support SAML-based authentication and ADFS but none of them have a way of requesting Certificate Authentication as a primary authentication method. I do not want to change this on a global level, because we have other relying parties which use WIA. I'm guessing you have everything you need for this already, please fix!

  19. Replace gpresult with a PowerShell cmdlet

    GPResult served us well when support was done manually on each client from the keyboard. What we need now is a cmdlet that we can use when remoting into a PC and get results that are applied to the PC, including polices that are not applied.

  20. Self Service Password Reset portal using whr to give a meaningful user ID example

    When passing something like "?whr=customdomain.com" to the password reset page it picks up my company branding, great stuff.

    However, the User ID section still carries an example text of "Example: user@contoso.onmicrosoft.com or user@contoso.com".

    Could the passwordreset.microsoftonline.com pages be updated so that the domain passed by whr gets used in the example, so that the example would read (in this case): "Example: user@customdomain.com".
