  1. Use "az vm repair" extension to create repair VM with private IP only

    A few months ago, I recommended az vm repair to help create a rescue vm. When running az vm repair create from the subscription, the operation fails because they had a policy to block Public IP addresses.

    I propose an optional switch that gives the option to not give the repair VM a Public IP and to specify the pre-existing VNET you'd like to create the Repair VM on.

    This way, the operation will complete on such a subscription and the VM will have a Private IP. Then depending on the user's setup (VPN, using another VM as a jump…

  2. Roadmap for "Azure AD login VM extension" to go GA

    Looking to integrate VM login to AAD using the extension in preview described at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/login-using-aad.

    Technically all working swimmingly well, but the log-in includes a warning message that the feature isn't for use in production.

    What's the guidance when this is expected to go GA?

    Raising here as suggested in handling of support ticket #120101924005145.

  3. Support of hyphens for Shared Image Gallery names

    We usually use hyphens as separators. Unfortunately, this is not supported in the Shared Image Gallery. It would be helpful if this could be supported. Image definitions support this.

  4. GPU enabled instance support in Japan West

    Please consider adding GPU instance support in Japan West.
    It's available in Japan East but we cannot easily migrate our service running on Azure Databricks.

  5. Shared Image Gallery : Allow to create multiple images from the same combination

    Current implementation of Shared Image Gallery images does not allow creation of a new image definition in case existing image definition using the same combination (of publisher, offer and SKU) already exists.

    In our use-case we create multiple self-hosted images using common base image from Azure Marketplace. Those images have different OS configurations (tools installed in VM) and infra configurations (different disk setups). Since all of those images share the same combination of publisher, offer and SKU, it is not possible to store those images in the same shared image gallery. We have to create separate image gallery for each…

  6. Why is clock speed never a choice when selecting VM ?

    Clock Speed is critical for specialized COTS applications that need migrated to Azure. However, there does not seem to be any option to select clock speed when selecting a VM.

  7. Max Uncached Disk Throughput Limit

    Customer has machines that require higher disk Throughput capabilities with less CPU/Memory than our VM series offer. For example customer has a need for a 4-8 cpu/16 GB of ram machine with 200 MB uncached disk throughput. Only size we offer is a VM with 8 CPU/64GB of ram that meets the throughput requirements.

  8. "Free space" as a metric for Virtual Machine disks

    Using 'Azure Monitor' it's impossible to set an alert based on hard disk free space metric.

    It could be useful to have this kind of metric, particularly on Linux VM where sometimes you need to check if a "logrotate" still working.

  9. How do you enabled shared disk for an existing managed disk?

    I read your article on how to enabled shared disk, but it only talks about creating a new disk with maxshares configured. How do you convert an existing disk to a shared disk? If it's not supported, can you put that in the article?

  10. Resize VM Confirmation Dialogue Box Missing

    Currently, clicking the resize button directly starts the resize operation. It should rather show a dialog box or pop-up notification to confirm the resize operation.

  12. Suggestion for VM script shell portal UI page

    For the Script commands passed on the virtual machine "Run Command" page, it would be very useful to have an option so that enables script commands that run to be automatically cataloged and listed on as commands (a command history). Users frequent certain commands, could 'pin' them, modify them, etc more plainly. Basically this improvement would be even more useful as Up Arrow key in bASh. Thanks!

  13. Automated Hot Add and Hot Removal of CPUs and Memory

    Allow for the setting of thresholds for CPU and Memory utilization that would trigger the Hot Addtion (or Hot Removal) or vCPUs and vRAM from a virtual machine, for those Guest operating systems that support those functions.
    As other users below have stated, the whole point of virtualization is to pay for the consumption you need when you need it. Hyper-V and VMWare both support hot add CPU's/memory so why can't we do this in Azure? Requiring a reboot just at the time that you need to scale up is not practical. I can't scale out my current design due…

  14. Connect request should default to one's IP address

    When you click on Connect to a VM with JIT access enabled, the default IP range is All Configured Addresses. That should change to 'My IP Address' as it reduces security vulnerabilities.

  15. By making it more acceesible for people that doesn't know much about what does virtualization means.

    I think people with no knowledge about virtualization or emulation will be kinda lost in these modules. They need easier-to-understand references to be able to fully comprehend the depth of this type of knowledge.

    I am having a blast learning, but I think other people won't be having the same expirience as I do.

  16. Azure Serial Console: Support Managed Storage for Boot Diagnostics settings

    Right now if we want to use the serial console functions we have to use a custom storage account for boot diagnostics - it cannot work with a managed storage account.

    please configure allowing serial console to work with managed boot diagnostics storage accounts

  17. Azure Disk Encryption - Support for Generation 2 VM's

    Azure Disk Encryption does not support Generation 2 VM's - we would like this support

    EDIT - it seems this might be supported at least for windows VM's but not yet documented?

  18. User of VM cannot be part of the password

    The password article
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/faq

    Is telling us what to do, but in fact it's missing an information
    - You cannot have the username in the password

    So if your username is "Foo" the password cannot contain the word "Foo". If you are creating VMs with PowerShell in the Automation account it will create the VMs, but you won't be able to connect to them. If you change the password using the Azure Portal, it will throw an error.

  19. Remove azure availability set from data center clusters and make them logical.

    Having availability sets tied to clusters in the azure data center can cause an allocation error when the VM is taken offline to resize. This error forces we the customer to stop all VMs in the set and restart. sort of defeats the purpose from our side.
    Can a data center use logical groups of hosts for availability sets that are not patched simultaneously and also use separate power\rack and allow the customer to utilize its own cluster to manage failover. This will allow us to take a client cluster node VMs offline to resize. if the VM needs to…

  20. performance tier pricing

    When creating a Premium SSD for a VM, there is an option to upgrade the performance tier. However, I don't see the pricing anywhere. The prices for each disk size are listed here:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/managed-disks/
    But this page does not include "performance tier upgrades" so I have no way of knowing how much more I would pay if I upgraded, say, a 32GB SSD to P50.

    Furthermore, it would be great to have at least base/example prices immediately available when choosing a disk size - just like VM prices are listed when choosing a VM size.
