  1. Enable adding shared VHDX to existing deployed service in VMM.

    Actually you are not able to add a shared VHDx to an existing deployed service in VMM.

    Please enable this feature.

    A good thing would be the usage of shared VHDx without Service-Templates too.

  2. Pinpoint VMs that are not allowed to run on the same host in a Hyper-V Cluster

    For VMs that uses an application cluster, like SQL Always on or Exchange DAGs it would be a nice feature to Point out these Machines and let VMM be aware that these VMs should not be on the same Hyper-V Host, when you put a host in maintenance mode. Like the "Preferred Owner" in Failover Cluster Manager.

  3. job scheduler for maintenance tasks such as adding cpu to VM

    It would be great to have tasks I could schedule, or just configure and it would be done during maintenance window for VMs - such as adding CPU or anything else what needs to put VM offline.

  4. Add a field in VMM that shows when a VM was last backed up.

    VMWARE does this in vCenter and it's very useful to eyeball when guests were backed up last. It also can aid when backups caused an issue for a machine possibly. It also makes it so my VM guy doesn't need to go talk to my backup guy.

  5. Update integration components without shutting down option.

    Much like the hyper-v console how I can "insert integration service" disk and do an upgrade reboot, it would be nice not to have to shut down the machine to do this in VMM. Or even cooler would be to schedule it to upgrade on next reboot. Granted I know windows update will soon take over this task.

  6. Autodetect Supported Linux OS

    When migrating Linux VMs from VMWare we observed that VMM does not autodetect the operating system as it does with Windows VMs, and so the OS is listed as Unknown. I wrote a script to query the key-value pair for OSName and then appropriately label the VM in VMM, but we feel that this should be an included feature.

  7. Allow live migration of hyper-v protected VMs.

    With Hyper-V protected VMs, the vast majority of data already exists on your target host. If a VM is not protected with replica, it migrates all the disk data and memory data and everything is good. With replica enabled there's less work -- most of the data is already on the target. Despite that, I can't do a live migration. While I can use SAN based replication I'd prefer to use Hyper-V replication because I have granularity of which VMs I'd like to protect and I don't have to take unnecessary snapshots of VMs that I don't want to protect.…

  8. More flexibile service templates

    Today we are kinda locked-in when it comes to service templates and deployment of those. I would like to see more flexibility here, such as:

    * dynamically add/remove tiers and instances to an existing service template
    * better management capabilities of the entire service and each individual tier, such as live migration, patching, and DSC integration
