Honolulu have been released as Windows Admin Center (WAC)
In the agile world we live in now Microsoft have released their new administration tool for servers formerly called Honolulu which was the project name and it is now by marketing named as Microsoft Windows Admin Center
I am running it on a Windows Server 2019 (core) build 17639
Using the AD module from Patrick Grünauer I can via the PowerShell remoting see viable information from the AD controller in WAC,
To manage a 2016 Hyper-V Server with WAC you need to add some features and roles
- Enable Remote Management.
- Enable File Server Role.
- Enable Hyper-V Module for PowerShell.
And the following OS can be managed by WAC:
|Version||Managed node via Server Manager||Managed cluster via Failover Cluster Mgr||Managed HCI cluster via HCI Cluster Mgr (preview)|
|Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709) or newer||Yes (via Computer Management)||N/A||N/A|
|Windows Server 2019 (insider builds)||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Windows Server, version 1709||Yes||Yes||No|
|Windows Server 2016||Yes||Yes||Coming soon|
|Windows Server 2012 R2||Yes||Yes||N/A|
|Windows Server 2012||Yes||Yes||N/A|
Windows Admin Center requires PowerShell features that are not included in Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2. If you will manage Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 with Windows Admin Center, you will need to install Windows Management Framework (WMF) version 5.1 or higher on those servers.
$PSVersiontable in PowerShell to verify that WMF is installed, and that the version is 5.1 or higher.
If WMF is not installed, you can download WMF 5.1.
