dSupportSuite currently has limited mgmt capabilities, and due to its initial design any real improvements would be a difficult implementation at best. This hinders the potential it has to do much more than it is currently capable of. I want to improve the situation, and I would appreciate your input, because only you know what you need.
I wanted to share my notes with you on how I would like to see things look and operate in the next release. If you are interested look them over and let me know what you think. Please look carefully as I haven't expressed the larger picture in absolutely every section/idea, though it is likely there if you examine all of the content in every section. Also obviously I left out a LOT of content in the XML especially but also in other areas that wasn't necessary to illustrate the system (e.g. different config types.) Some concepts or usage ideas may only be implied, some are entirely expressed in XML, but most should be fairly obvious. Remember when browsing that I have looked at many of the issues and requests mentioned on the forums, and while much of the designs/concepts you will see will directly improve some situations, it won't happen across the board; but maybe at least pave the way for future improvements by providing a better foundation to build new features upon. http://1drv.ms/1GP1lyr
this is my "real-time" onenote on the project so content may change at any time, check back frequently when following up on a topic/design idea
also keep in mind that currently I'm not focusing on any topic related to the dSS client software or related configuration of any type, so please hold off on discussion not related to mgmt capabilities or operation of "the system" -- once we get mgmt worked out we can think about the rest.
