Advanced Admin Console vNext

Andreas Miceli has released a preview to his new version of the Advanced Admin Console Add-In (AAC) for Windows Server code name Vail. This new version looks great and Diehard and I did a video showing some of the important features for this Vail Add-In. Read on to find out more about this great addition to Windows Server code name Vail.


As Vail continually works toward a future release, I have wondered when the Vail code would be stable enough for Add-In development. Many of you heard on the Home Server Show #105 about the major changes required for Vail Add-Ins. In addition, these developers usually do not get paid for all of the work required for creating and modifying Add-Ins so releases are at their time and discretion.

It is great news that Andreas has announced a preview to what many of us consider a “Core” V1 Add-In for Windows Server code name Vail!

The Advanced Admin Console provides the clean interface, performance and the functionality we have to come to expect from an Add-In by Andreas. Once in Beta I doubt there will be many changes as this Add-In seems to be ready for prime time!

Thank you to Andreas and to Andrew Edney for allowing me to review this great Add-In.

  1. I have to work on the sound when you and I talk. You could hear the sprinklers, motorcycles and airplanes flying by. Nice.
