While I couldn't be more ticked off with Microsoft at the moment and want new server products, Mac sure isn't the answer.
Maybe if MAC entered the big boy world and actually made a server product, we could throw away all of our MS Servers !!!
Ha, when I used to watch that MAC cool guy verses the Windows nerd on TV I used to laugh. All I could picture Duane Johnson (The Rock) walking up with a shirt saying Server on it and then body clamming that MAC nerd.
Sorry to hear you are using Hyper-V - it is a kindergardeners tool compared to VMWare. Just another product that Microsoft sadly puts very little effort into and then wants to claim it is a great product.
I user Hyper-V everyday and I have admnistered VMWare in the past - if at all possible STAY WAY FROM HYPER-V it is GARBAGE just waiting to get you fired over Microsofts incompetent development teams.
I have to agree with all the comments I have read and I feel everyones pain, everyday.
The frist suggestion here is this: QUIT treating Server 2016 like it is someones home PC. I am fairly sure that MS2016 Datacenter is NOT a home product.
- GET RID OF DEFENDER - I can provide screen shots of machines utilizing defender with
thousands and thousands of infections - IT HAS NO PLACE ON SERVER !!!
- Next, just to refresh Microsofts memory - Server products are used for critical operations
STOP focring updates and restarts let us choose the times so we can notify critical operation
that restarts are going to happen - you are putting the jobs of professionals in jepardy - We
are tired of being blamed for Microsofts Dictatorship style of ruling!
- FIX IE - just because you have it so locked down upon install does NOT make it a secure
product. Especially when we have to disable all the securtity just to go to Microsofts websites!
You really could learn a thing or two from Chrome and Firefox - they put their customers first.
- STOP moving our tools around, you may enjoy Easter Egg hunts with you kids - BUT NOT at
work in critical situations. You are HURTING the engineers that support you ! Give us
(YOUR MCSE's) the choice of wanting to search for how to do everything or not. Your
screwing with our jobs.
- Try fixing the tens of thousands of bad links on your websites. I really hate the click here for
details or help and all I get is half-@#$ ****.
- How can you have an event ID and source for event log errors that have no information on
- STOP trying to force ****** apps like Defender and IE on us, now it's edge and skype that
you can't unistall.
- Make your System Center products (that you forced us to buy with Datacenter) perform like
your competors tools. After 20 years, DPM still can not restore a single mailbox, let alone a
single email! Everyone else does it, are you to incompetent to give your engineers what they
need? I would be ashamed to have my company name on any of your System Center
I could go on for days writing this, I have been supporting Microsoft WIndows since 3.1 and NT 3.1. So I definately have the background to say "You Treat those of us that support you LIKE TRASH". I am probably one of your oldest engineers, and never, not once, have you ever listened to us. Well, maybe getting us the business verion of XP, but nothing else.
The one thing that keeps Microsoft going is it's engineers and our recomendations. I have news for you, we are fed up with your ****, your incompetence and your forcing garbage on us. Start fixing your products, or you'll end up just like Tandy as we, the engineers start pushing to remove all Microsoft products from our environments.
NOT A JOKE - you better start asking us, the engineers what we want and need in new versions of Server. We use, support, fix, recomend and buy your products. It's time to put us first, Linux is starting to become very attractive.
Sorry to rant here, but I am sick and tired of all the bull. Auditing starts again next week and we will get ripped apart because of Microsoft yet again!
