  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.

    This feature is being planned, will update once we start working on this.

  2. 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

  3. 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...

  4. SCVMM re-scan of Hyper V cluster to update its database

    SCVMM gets itself in a mess, Cluster Manager knows were the VM's are SCVMM think's it knows and you get in a situation were you can't fix it. Its so frustration...

  6. 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.)

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Enable Shared Nothing Live Migrations between Hyper-V Clusters using SOFS Clusters

    In our setup a Hyper-V cluster does have it's own SOFS cluster, we have several of those clusters. So a one-to-one relationship is established between a Hyper-V Cluster and a SOFS Cluster.
    SCVMM 2016 does not allow for VM's to be live-migrated between Hyper- V clusters while this was possible using SCVMM2012R2. This functionality disappeared magically in 2016. We really need this since we migrate VMs regularly between clusters.
    For example; we do have local clusters and stretched clusters, we need to live migrate VMs between those for distributing load and SLA levels. The loss of this functionality is documented…

  10. VMM Plugin for Windows Admin Center

    Would like to see a plugin In Windows Admin Center for SCVMM so that administrators can perform VM and Host Management tasks from a web based interface rather than depending on the MMC console.
    Also it would enable self-servicing by giving the ability for delegated administrators or tenants to administer their own VMs and also create their own VMs under their clouds

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. introduce a function similar to VMWare vCenter Linked Mode

    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.

  17. Simultaneous Live Migration from 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.

  18. 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.

    Keiko Harada responded

    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,
