Hi,

on a fresh Win 10 insider client (16278 updated to 16299) I installed Windows_InsiderPreview_RSAT_x64_16279 but it seems to be missing DNS Server Tools, the MMC snap-in. All other tools like AD, DHCP, WSUS, RAS etc. are there.

It should be there, right?

Try this:  open powershell as an administrator, type Disable-Ual, then reboot the server.  Then try sysprep once more.

Exact same problem here. been happening for over 24 hours now

As the title says, with Insiders 16237, files in a host mapped volume aren't recognised - e.g.

type filename.txt

doesn't work.

 

Specifying the full path however does work:

type C:\MappedVolume\filename.txt

  

Is this a known issue? Is this an appropriate forum

I noticed it is not possible to do an in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2016 Core to Windows Server Insider Preview 16257 Core.  Will this change in a future preview or for the final release?

Hello,

 

With dedup now being supported on ReFS (as of 16257), there is only one other major issue preventing widespread ReFS adoption.  FSRM quotas and file screens are still not supported.  Is it in the roadmap?
