Containers

  1. Provide an Internet Explorer docker container: enable UI capability

    We would like to run selenium tests in isolated displays as is currently possible for Chrome and Firefox in docker-selenium or dosel.

    Also, it would be great to video record the entire desktop to troubleshoot failing tests.

  2. Create base container image with MSMQ-Server

    The MSMQ-Server role is a prerequisite for Particular NServiceBus installation. As NServiceBus handlers are potentially a good fit for containerization, it was disappointing to find that it is not possible to install MSMQ-Server in a container. Please create a base image with this support!

  4. Provide Office Support for Containers

    Many Business Application are dependent on Office to edit files or import/export of ppt or word formats. So adding office support for Containers would be a good idea.

  5. Enable "server" service and MMC UI management capabilities

    Please enable "Server" service so container file system can be accessed from host and this is also prerequisite for other UI management tools which are disabled due to that like EventViewer for example

  6. Support for MSDTC

    We have legacy .NET based business applications making extensive use of MSDTC. It will be good to have support for this role in containers to enable Lift & Shift scenarios.

  8. Fix Docker load/pull/build issue when Bitlocker is enabled

    When running Docker in domain joined computer which has Bitlocker enabled, loading/pulling/building images don't work when group policy "Deny write access to fixed not protected by Bitlocker" is on.

    According to Patrick Lang, this is because "This setting indirectly affects containers because we create a VHD for each container's scratch space and format it. Since it's a new disk and not yet encrypted, then Windows will block access to that VHD based on that policy." (https://github.com/Microsoft/Virtualization-Documentation/issues/355#issuecomment-284025671)

    Because of this restriction and the fact that our security policy doesn't allow exceptions, I cannot currently properly use Docker in my…

  9. Support for --privileged on windows containers

    I would like to have support for the --privileged command on windows containers. I would be nice to have this feature on a build server.

  10. Active Directory Domain join support.

    It would be good if containers could be domain joined for account and security purposes.

  11. Getting the same level on information with PS and Docker CLI

    Today in TP3, Windows container started with PS are not showed if you do a docker ps -a. Windows container run with docker cli are not show in PowerShell with Get-container. Another example : with docker CLI, you work a lot with ID (that you can see with docker ps -a). In PowerShell Get-container doesn't show ID

  12. Expose Container runtime information like ip address

    Right now, Get-Container does not expose the ip address in use by the container runtime. There is also no alternative cmdlet to figure the ip address out. You need to go in and check.

  14. There should be an MMC to manage and configure windows and Hyper-v containers.

    There should be an MMC to manage and configure windows and Hyper-v containers. This is a Windows component. And like other components there should be a gui to manage it

  15. Allow configuring a default MTU for all containers

    All container network interfaces ("vEthernet (Ethernet)") use MTU 1500 by default. There is no way to configure a default MTU other than 1500, despite Docker and Microsoft documentation which indicates that this should be possible: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/manage-docker/configure-docker-daemon, https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/dockerd/#description.

    This is a huge pain point for users running on platforms that require an MTU less than 1500. The only solution at this time is to set the container interface's MTU first thing every time one runs a container, for every container.

  17. Make older Visual studio versions install correctly in containers

    Currently, only the very latest installer for the Visual studio core tools installs correctly within a container. It would help if the installers for Older versions of Visual Studio (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44266 in particular) shouldn't complain that their executable "is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running." This would help make containers much more useful for running CI tests with older versions of Visual Studio. Some of the older installers even raise that error when being run outside of a container in a full Windows Server TP 4 installation.

  18. New-Container unique identifier

    You can create multiple containers with the same name. We need a way to specify a unique attribute during creation so idempotent configurations can check on this. I created a DSC resource which now used the Container Name a key parameter which is contradictive but there is no alternative.

  19. Create microsoft registry and stop using foreign layers

    Currently the microsoft images for dotnet, server-core etc.use foreign layers to point to the base layers so they are pulled directly from microsoft, i believe this was done for licensing reasons.

    This causes issues running in most 'enterprise' networks where direct internet access is not allowed, the normal solution is something like nexus to proxy remote registries. Foreign layers bypasses this and workarounds like '--allow-nondistributable-artifacts' are cumbersome.

    Other companies like Oracle have created there own repos where they can host there own licensed images which is a far simpler solution (https://blogs.oracle.com/weblogicserver/the-oracle-container-registry-has-gone-live).

    Is it possible for microsoft to host…

  20. Mount Block Device Inside Container

    Docker is unable to mount VHD or other block devices inside of a container. This would be useful for isolating several disk related tasks that can cause issues. (This does not require device pass-thru like DDA)

    This would allow for Windows Full Flash Update (FFU) image creation to be performed inside of a container.
