  1. 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.

  2. Allow setting ExposeVirtualizationExtensions to true in VMM

    We are using this for enabling Device Guard/Credential Guard on VMs not for nested virtualization.

  3. Provide better explination of STATUS results

    Currently we are using SMB scale out file storage with a HyperV clusters. We constantly get "?" when we look at the SMB File share storage in the cluster properties. There is no explanation given as to what the issue is. Would be nice to get some possible reasons for the status to help with troubleshooting

  4. Remove optical media from running vm

    Currently (1801) we are unable to remove optical media from a running VM although it is supported and doable from the failover cluster manager.
    Please fix that.

  5. Integrate DSC and LCM provisioning configuration with appropriate templates.

    Should be able to configure LCM for tenant or service provider https pull server. Optionally Should allow DSC configuration to be included as a custom resource and compiled and placed locally during configuration process.

  6. VMM 2016 CU1 Bug - "Start VM after deploying it" not working

    When I select "Start the virtual machine after deploying it" in the Migrate VM Wizard, the VM is not started. I have not tried powershell and I only have 1 install to test with. All Hyper-V targets are 2016 fully patched. Source hosts are 2012 R2.

  7. Enable log for Shield VM data file wizard

    For configuring and set up Shielded VM & guarded Host, there is online guide available in below link..https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Shielded-VMs-and-Guarded-44176db3/view/Discussions
    which is very helpful..

    But,during the process of creating vm shielding data file, there is no logs generated and detailed information for the errors ShieldingDataFileWizard.exe .. it is very difficlut to troubleshoot..

    This is one of the cases, like this there are many steps that needs to executed for using this shield VM feature..

    I recommend it would be great to have logs for these wizard and document of known issues.. and troubleshooting steps

    Regards,
    Kalaivani
