  1. VMM library servers in multiple sites -> synchronization of content

    That’s a major issue that there is no support for DFS-R to keep different VMM library servers in different sites in sync or up to date. If we can use DFS-R for it that would be a good step forward.

    • Multi select in UI

      please add the ability to multiselct and do "anything" aka shutdown move and so on , having to select a vm at a time for some functions is very time consuming

      • Do not lock VMs in UI when a job is failed

        We're discussed this but I want to say it again: it's VERY annoying to click Repair->Ignore every time...

            • give Console View in VMM the same options like in Hyper-V or FailoverCluster Manager

              sometimes i need to use the console view to connect to the VMs desktop. But the console view in VMM is not as good as the viewer in FCM or Hyper-V manager.
              Please make the console view the same as in the other management tools (i. e. Insert Integration Services disk, Start, Stop VM, etc.)

              • Database Consistency Tool

                We are regularly faced with inconsistency in the database or we need to remove a cluster or a node but can't because VMM simply refuses. Repairing the database is risky and unsupported and once in while things get messed up. I'd love to see a tool which tests for VMM database inconsistency and a way to clean up

                  • Improve dangerous PowerShell CMDlets

                    Right now you can easily remove all cloud services (VM Role deployments) because there is no confirm impact for the remove-cloudservice and remove-cloudresource cmdlets. Also whatif is not available.
                    When running get-cloudservice | remove-cloudservice, everything is gone without any prompt for confirmation.

                    • Get vCPU to Logical CPU ratio into the equation for optimizing hosts.

                      I wish that the process of caclulating for host optimization would prioritize the vCPU to CPU ratio. When the ratio is to large, the VMs Waits too long for CPU time. A cluster can have a significant difference in this ratio from hos to host.

                        Let us use "group managed service accounts" for both a RunAs account, as well as the user under which we would install and run SCVMM.

                          • Security Rights on Fabric

                            Hi,

                            Currently there is no possibility to restrict access on the Fabric. For example, if I want to give to an administrator only rights to view/start/restart/shutdown/open console on VMS, there is no way to do this. It would be nice if more roles for fabric could be created like: Virtual Machine Deployment User, Virtual Machine Power user etc, roles that can be customized.

                              I suggest you introduce a function similar to VMWare vCenter Linked Mode where you can connect to and manage multiple VMM environments from the same VMM console.

                                When I need to live migrate a number of VM's (not all because we can place a host in maintenance mode), I'd like to multi-select those VMs and live migrate them together. Now I go back to FCM and do it from there.

                                • Add option to sort and search the Address pool when creating VM

                                  Add option to sort and search the Address pool when creating VM
                                  When you create a VM is very frustrating to scroll through the entire list of Address poll's to find the right address pool (VLAN) in which you need to locate the VM because the aforementioned list is not sorted by any criteria and is not supported either search options. Perhaps this could be subsumed under existing bug ya SCVMM 2102 R2.

                                      Hi Markus,

                                      Can you break this down in smaller ideas? This is just too big of a bucket for us. Also there is an idea for HVR on VMM. Would you like to vote there?

                                      thanks,

                                    • Flexible poll settings in VMM pr host/host group

                                      today polling remote hyper-v hosts takes alot of bandwith , the ability to set poll frequency based on a host/host group would be a great option , or add the ability to set a host to push so it only pushes changes to reduce load

                                      • Make it possible to Live Migrate VMM with VMM

                                        Would be nice to be able to Live Migrate VMM through VMM and not have to use ClusterManager to move that VM.

                                        • Storage migration on Service Templates

                                          Please add Storage Migration to Service Templates. It´s pretty boring to shut down the VMs move the disks etc. Could be in the scenario where VMs have shared disks i.e. for clustering.
