  1. "Update remediation of AgentServer"

    24027 Update remediation of AgentServer <Server Name> timed out.

    The Remediation task with a time-out value of 40 minutes.

    When you have updates from more then a month, it will take more then 40 minutes to complete the task.

    I never seen remediation task been successful, because of this and other issues with the remediation feature.

    Please help to update this value or change the behavior so this error does not occur.

    Request you to please connect with support team and raise the same as production ticket. Support Team can work and perform detailed investigation and identify the root cause.

  2. End-to-End Hyper-V and Cluster Management in the SCVMM Console

    Today we are not able to fully manage Hyper-V Hosts and Clusters from the SCVMM Console. For some settings we still need to do it from the local host. It would be great to have SCVMM to support all the Hyper-V and Cluster features in just one console.

  3. Improve seriously Azure Subscription configuration wizard in VMM

    Well I don't understand why the certificate needed in Add Azure Subscription wizard in VMM must be in current user personnal store. Why we cannot use Computer, personnal store ?

    Also, there is no description of key usage needed for this Azure Management Certificate. Makecert is really not an option when as a serious IT you have a private PKI.

    The crazy thing is that in SC App Controller, to connect an Azure Subscription, it's possible to use certificate in Computer Store.

    New approach – AD based for connection to Azure is being implemented.

  4. Ability to unregister a VM without deleting it from SCVMM

    Seems that the only action that I can take to remove a VM from SCVMM is delete option. It would be nice to have the ability to unregister the VM without actually deleting it completely.

  6. Rename the product to Datacenter Manager

    Rename the product in such a way that people understand that VMM is much more than a Hypervisor Manager - Suggestions: DataCenter Manager

  8. Patch Baselines - add "All xxxxx Servers" for each type

    When working with Baselines for patching, it's possible to choose "All hosts" so all new hosts are automatically added to that Baseline.
    But there is currently not possible to also pick "All infrastructure Servers" or "All PXE Servers" so when a new server of that type is added, it's automatically included in the baselines just as a host would be.

  9. Make PatchManagement use WSUS Approval Rules

    It would be great if VMM could use the pre-approval groups and rules already setup in WSUS.

  10. Make it possible to choose migration method when more than one would be technically available

    When it's technically possible to move a VM with both Live Migration and BITS, then make it possible to choose which method should be used for that transfer.

  11. Library Share without Windows

    In this moment a library must be on a Window Server and this is not good because for vhdx, iso, scripts and more could be used share on a remote storage, like QNAP or others, where the agent cannot be installed.

  13. Improve Update Console

    Update console is too "poor" because I can't see who many servers need a specific update and if the update is obsolete or not. The console must be improved like WSUS
