    The virtual machines of the B series do not inform about the bandwidth.

    All series report about bandwidth except type B machines.

    According to Microsoft they do not inform because it is a variant connection, but at least they should indicate the minimum and maximum.

    As in all series in the NIC part, the bandwidth must also appear.

  2. Low On Memory Error: Server 2016, B series

    I just spun up a brand new Standard B1ms (1 vcpu, 2 GB memory), all I did was login to the VM and am getting out of memory errors (which would tell me windows server 2016 doesn't really support this level of VM size). Also it fails to retrieve updates - this is just a plain vanilla OOB/first run experience. Additionally you can't login and click the start button - you have to click it about 10 times to get the menu to pop up - this is probably more of a windows issue but I'd expect it to at…

  3. Improve Portal Message for Availability Set allocation errors

    If there is an allocation error when restarting a deallocated VM, the following error message is logged:
    “Failed to start virtual machine 'xyc'. Error: Allocation failed. Please try reducing the VM size or number of VMs, retry later, or try deploying to a different Availability Set or different Azure location.”

    If there is an allocation issue when creating a new machine the following message is displayed:
    “New-AzureRmVM : Unable to create the VM because the requested size StandardF4 is not available in the cluster where the availability set is currently allocated. The available sizes are: StandardDS1v2,StandardDS2_v2…

  4. Report VM Status and PowerState More Accurately

    VM Status and PowerState are not always reported correctly. Often a VM which has been running for hours or days will report Status=RoleStateUnkown or PowerState=Starting (even though it is clearly Started).

    Please work to make this reporting more accurate. Thank you!

  5. Creating a Low Priority VMSS using Portal has FD count bug

    When creating a VMSS with Low Priority, FaultDomain Count is set to 5 by default.

    "spreadingAlgorithmPlatformFaultDomainCount": {

            "value": "5"
    

    Obviously this is a bug, because Low Priority VMSS only supports Single Fault Domain
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machine-scale-sets/virtual-machine-scale-sets-use-low-priority

    If we go with the default value, we got FD count error.

    Deployment failed. Correlation ID:
    {
    'error': {

    'code': 'InvalidParameter',
    
    'message': 'The value of parameter platformFaultDomainCount is invalid.',
    'target': 'platformFaultDomainCount'

    }
    }

    I think this needs to be fixed in Portal Front-end side.

  6. storing vmSize with the exactly the same capitalization independently how VM was created

    VmSize is stored with the capitalization how it was called during creation (v2 <> V2).

    VM with v2
    az vm create -n clitest1 -g SAP --image UbuntuLTS --size StandardD13v2

    az vm show -g SAP -n clitest1 -d

    "hardwareProfile": {

    &quot;vmSize&quot;: &quot;Standard_D13_v2&quot;
    

    VM with V2
    az vm create -n clitest2 -g SAP --image UbuntuLTS --size StandardD13V2

    az vm show -g SAP -n clitest2 -d

    "hardwareProfile": {

    &quot;vmSize&quot;: &quot;Standard_D13_V2&quot;
    

    It causes additional data cleaning necessary during azure data analyzes.
    Please correct
    thanks
    István

  8. Inherit tags on virtual machine extensions

    Many companies enforce tagging by denying resource creation if no tags are present. Using PowerShell, creating a VM gives an error because the extension (BGInfo) is not tagged. In order for this to work, you must explicitly use the -DisableBgInfo parameter. However, other extensions (like the one for Azure Security Center) could also cause this.

    Managed Disks (specifically for the OS) avoid this problem by inheriting the tags from the VM. PowerShell error:

    New-AzureRmVM -ResourceGroupName $rgName -Location $location -VM $vm -Tags @{Owner="me"} -Verbose
    New-AzureRmVM : The resource action 'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions/write' is disallowed by one or more
    policies.

  9. I can not set up automatic backup of SQL Server 2016 on a portal with a language setting other than English

    When deploying the image of SQL Server 2016 with the portal in Japanese language setting and setting automatic backup, the deployment parameter is set to Japanese and an error occurs at the time of expansion.

    If you set the portal language setting to English, the correct parameters are set and you can deploy.

    backupScheduleType : 手動 → Manual
    fullBackupFrequency: 週単位 → Weekly

    Even in languages other than English, I would like you to pass the correct parameters at deployment time.

  15. Delete a Failed VM

    I can't consistently reproduce this, but the process is frequent add and delete of a VM, regular or in a DevTetLab, sometimes in the same resource group and other times in a different one. Occasionally, a deleted VM and its resource group will reappear in the list. When navigating to the VM, its associated resources will be "not found" and the VM itself will have a status of failed below the action buttons (start, stop, etc.). In this case, the VM and the containing resource group cannot be deleted. The delete operation will simply timeout after a while.

  16. SharePoint 2013 Non-HA Template Doesn't work

    Twice today I have tried to use the SharePoint 2013 Non-HA Template and it has failed both times. Once when it was trying to create the domain controller and the second time when it was trying to create the SQL Server.

    Can this template be fixed ?

  19. Spot VM eviction events not being published to Event Grid

    I'd like to set up an event grid subscription to capture spot VM evictions, but those eviction deallocation and/or delete events are not being published to Event Grid. Practically all other VM events (including manual deallocation, deletion, or simulated evictions) are sent to the event grid; please send these platform-initiated events to the grid too.

    I have seen the documentation for VMs monitoring their own metadata service for scheduled eviction events, but that's not an acceptable solution for me; I need to be able to monitor these events from an outside service (via a queue or other handler from the…
