This morning, I go to open WAC and get "E<SPAN>RR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" - remotely and on the server itself. I've tried tinkering with the firewall, some suggestions involved changing the Log On As, etc. but it's still not working. The server does not do anything else, no other applications are installed on it.&nbsp;</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>Any thoughts on this?&nbsp;</SPAN></P> Fri, 17 Sep 2021 12:36:40 GMT NikPlanned 2021-09-17T12:36:40Z SSO for PowerShell in WAC <P>So we have WAC setup working with Delegated access for the servers with no login prompts, however once you attempt to load PowerShell it does prompt for creds, I take it this is by default to re-verify the creds. The problem we have is that we are transitioning to a PAM solution and will not have access to the passwords, does anyone know if there is a way to force it to use delegation or to inject the creds of the service account running WAC?</P> Thu, 16 Sep 2021 19:41:29 GMT Mfc8c3 2021-09-16T19:41:29Z Suggestions and feedback about Windows Admin Center <P>1. The Windows Admin Center administrator role cannot manage AD users and DNS resource records.</P><P>2. The Windows Admin Center Readers role cannot do anything. What is the significance of this group? WAC is not a monitoring software.</P><P>&nbsp; There are multiple administrators in the company. Not every administrator needs the highest authority. They just do some simple management tasks, such as creating an account, resetting passwords, or managing DNS resource records.</P><P>&nbsp;&nbsp;WAC has only three role groups, and the granularity of permissions simply cannot meet the needs. WAC looks more like a toy, a semi-finished product. The idea of Web-based RBAC is very good, and I hope Microsoft can increase development efforts as soon as possible.</P> Thu, 16 Sep 2021 12:02:49 GMT nnti6789 2021-09-16T12:02:49Z Apps & Features not working for some computers... <P>Some of the computers we manage with Windows Admin Center (WAC) won't allow us to view 'Apps &amp; features'.&nbsp; &nbsp;We will select a particular computer and we will see the Overview page without any issues.&nbsp; We will then click 'Apps &amp; features', but instead of a list of Apps, we get the message "No Records Found" and the attached error:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>We couldn't retrieve the applications.

I have to integrate Cisco Meraki Dashboard with this server for authenticating the users with their AD credentials. I have everything configured on the Meraki Dashboard to contact the server, Essentially, what happens is that Dashboard and server will communicate on TLS, port 3268 and create the binding. For this to happen, On my windows server (DC) I need to provide the certificate for TLS connection. I created the certificate with all required parameters and imported them to personal, Trusted CA certs store in MMC snap (Don't have IIS installed). Now, when I do the testing from the Meraki Dashboard, It looked like it detected the server but it now has problems with my credentials. I am using the Domain Admin credentials, not sure what is wrong, any help would be appreciated.</SPAN></P><P><SPAN><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 11.22.01 AM.png" style="width: 562px;"><img src=";px=999" role="button" title="Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 11.22.01 AM.png" alt="Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 11.22.01 AM.png" /></span></SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks.</P> Wed, 14 Apr 2021 16:28:31 GMT akhilbhattar1 2021-04-14T16:28:31Z is there a way to organize your servers In Windows Admin Center? <P>Been playing around with Windows Admin Center, but can't help the feeling that the product is immature.

Each time we schedule a firmware run, it fails to Suspend Server, even after proving we can drain all hosts in the cluster manually via the cluster manager. It will fail at this step regardless of the firmware selected or the hosts/hosts selected.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Interestingly, if we manually pause the host before the update run is scheduled, it will get passed the Suspend Server task and continue on with the firmware install process successfully. We haven't been able to find any information in the logs of the Integrator, on XClarity Administrator directly, in the Hyper-V and FOCM logs or the Cluster logs.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>If anyone has come across this before or could help that would be much appreciated.</P> Tue, 02 Feb 2021 20:31:45 GMT Ricksta1125 2021-02-02T20:31:45Z How to use Windows Admin Center to connect to remote computers using VPN? <P><SPAN>Is there a way to use WAC to connect to machines remotely through a VPN.
