Windows Admin Center Compatibility

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

With the formal release of Windows Admin Center (formerly project Honolulu) RDM should be able to open the primary Admin Center page, individual server pages, and automatically log you in. Currently RDM has the following issues that prevent this from happening.

  • Loading Admin Center pages only work in external mode. They will load in Embedded mode using Google Chrome as the browser, but you receive a page cannot be displayed error when it first loads and if you refresh it or hit the home button, the page will load correctly.
  • Admin Center does not properly authenticate the user RDM is run under. If you run any browser as a user with permission to Admin Center, it will automatically log you in, but if you run RDM with the same user and launch the web browser session in either embedded or external mode, Admin Center says the credentials are invalid.
  • Add the ability for RDM to auto log in as a specified user. If the user account is not accepted by Admin Center, it will display a form with radio buttons to allow you to log in with a different user. The second (non default) radio button has to be selected and then a username and password need to be entered into form fields that do not have an ID associated to them.

Hi,

Same issue on my Site with RDM 14.0.3.0.
Windows Admin Center is one of the important tools from Microsoft for a Administrator yet and in the future.
Please try to fix the Problem, so we can use this website in RDM.

Hello,

To let you know, we opened a ticket for this request. We'll put it in higher priority since there's a lot of people who want this integration in RDM.

I have the same problem with RDM version 2019.1.41.0. It's possible to work with Windows Admin Center in an embedded tab?

Hello,

There is a Windows Admin Center entry type, which opens an embedded web browser to the Windows Admin Center. Is this what you're looking for?

The Windows Admin Center entry type will displays the Admin Center page and pass the correct credentials, however, it does not load individual sever URLS. If I enter the addres https://admincenter/servermanager/connections/server/server1.domain.local/tools/overview in the Admin Center entry type and open the session, I end up at https://admincenter.

Hello,

Is it because when it opens, it goes on the login page first and doesn't redirect you to the right URL afterwards?

It does not ask for a login when going to the main portal or directly to managing a specific server. The credentials are passed through the browser.

Thank you for the information. We will try to reproduce the issue and see what can be done.

Hello,

After testing, we were able to reproduce a similar behavior, where RDM will not autofill the credentials of the server entered in the entry.
As this is currently not supported, we will open an improvement ticket for this.
