It seems impossible to report a bug (not configuration error) to Microsoft - We have a couple of bugs we have seen when running hosting center operations that we would like to inform the Windows dev. team about - but there is no way to do it thru Microsoft Support.
We have 2 issues we would like the Windows team to be aware of.
1. Windows Time service (Unable to reproduce the bug and only see once).
We had one issue (on the worst possible server) where the time forwarded with 31 days and 2 hours forward ind time - this causes a big mesh in a customer database. We have eventlog audit logs where we can see it's Windows Time service that sets the wrong time - and it continued to set the wrong time until the service was stopped. When the service was started again the time jumped to the feature again until the server was rebooted.
2. Dynamic VHDX file corruption (Can be reproduced in lab)
When running dynamic VHDX files on storage spaces volume in a clustered enviroment and the volume gets arround 1TB and have decent workload the virtual disk gets corruped - the first symptoms is the virtual machine is restarted by the cluster as it loses access to the volume and the cluster service "rescues" the machine - after it has happend a few times and the disk grows at some point Windows is unable to mount the disk in R/W mode - only way to access data on volume is to mount in read only mode (thru diskpart) and copy data to new volume. When uses fixed size disks there is no issues - so it relates to something then the dynamic vhdx files.
I hope someone in Microsft Windows team sees this at takes the issues to fix - if someone needs more info / logs etc. they are welcome to contace me.

Well it wasn't but regardless it is a dead topic now. Apparently it looks like they no longer want any feedback about windows server.
