  1. Let me run Windows10 UWP Apps (or code) in Azure

    With Windows10 universal apps I can now run my code anywhere...except in Azure. I'd like to run that common code on a server in Azure as well.

    My use case is this. I have some complex logic using Win2D and the new MediaComposition libraries that combines images, video, audio and other media into an output video. (By the way, it's too complex for Azure Media Services today.) In cases where my customers aren't on Windows 10 (or on a Windows device at all) I'd like to run that logic in Azure and let them download the results. I really don't…

  2. Customer & Sales Service

    I am new to your service. I think you have great offerings, but the sales service is simply poor. For the past few days, I have tried but in vain to get through your sales/pre-sales department to get advise what Azure services will best suit my needs so i can purchase ( I am currently with digital ocena)

    Can you point to the right direction please?

    A point to note, that as someone new to Azure, it can be overwhelming to get started due to the sheer amount of information, and the lack of coordinated 1-stop shop help for your…

  3. Clone production enviroment to azure msdn dev/test

    With the recent announcement of the new EA and pay-as-you-go MSDN dev/test subscriptions for Azure, it would be great if we had the ability to clone our production enviroments into an MSDN dev/test subscription to ensure an identical enviroment for testing new releases. Of course something's would have to change (external ip) which the user should be prompted for if they can set it, or informed of if they can't

  4. VM Fails when upgrading DS4, stops working with DS13

    I was upgrading my VM from 4 cores to DS4 which is the smaller 8 core. Wouldn't do it, and failed everytime I tried. I then upgraded to DS13 which is another 8 core with more memory and that worked. Tried to go back down to the DS4, but failed again. After a day the DS13 crashed and wouldn't start back up, even when restarting from the portal. I then had to try to upgrade to DS14 which is 16 cores which I didnt need but it worked. I shouldnt have to pay this extra money for hardware I dont…

  5. Support for Bug Related or System Related issues.

    Notice that you cant leave a support ticket or support incident when you notice an issue with the service.

    What is the best way to notify Microsoft of some type of negative experience with the service?

  9. just a complaining

    I've spent two days to prepare an exchange 2013 lab which including 3 VMs, but failed! It's extremely discouraged me!
    After I feel the lab was almost ready, one VM was unable to contact remotely by anyway. I had no idea.
    Then I re-created all VMs, but the long time of provisioning VM defeated utterly me again.
    I think I would forget Azure VMs. Hope you have a perfect future.

  12. Add Japanese resource of System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection to Gallary Image "Windows Server Remote Desktop Session Host"

    I want to view the message in Japanese for System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection dialog at Azure Virtual Machine and at Azure RemoteApp collection by this image.
    I can add a Japanese language to Windows Server 2012 R2, and can change all Messages to Japanese except System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection's messages.

  13. I need Windows 7 or 8.1 and visual studio professional on premium storage, BizSpark, West Europe

    There are VM's with Server2012 and visual studio community, but I don't want a server as it is used only by a single developer (we also have problems with visual svn which we do not get on our local windows 7 machines).

    There are also a lot of VM on premium storage, West europe that are exclusive to MSDN, but we can't use them through our BizSpark subscription (although we did sign up for MSDN through our BizSpark subscription)

  14. Custom Attributes for Virtual Machines

    Consider a set of custom attributes a Customer can maintain on a Virtual Machine object in Azure.
    Helpful for Automation, custom reporting, etc.
    Should be easy to implement, already known in VMM and would enable Migration Scenarios.

  15. CREATE TEST FRAMEWORK FOR IAAS TESTING

    There is no Test framework today to test the IAAS hosting. All the automation testing is difficult when handling multiple subscriptions.

  18. another way to copy VM image to another storage account

    the storage account has a limit with storage I/O (20000) ,so we can't create too many VMs in one storage accouht. but we found if we deploy the VM with custom image we can't find a easy way to copy a image with data disk. we can only copy all VHD to another storage account and create new image from OSdisk .then create a vm and attach datadisk, at last, we need to recapture new image.

    we think it should find a new way to copy the image instead of copy the VHD because the new VHD is just a…

  19. Ability to move Virtual machines between suscriptions

    We work with projects creating a suscription for each project. That way we can have control of how much money we expend on the windows azure service.
    But sometimes, we would like to reuse existing machines that we used in one suscription to a second suscription for a different project.

    I know we can replicate VM, o use backup disk, etc, but it would be so much easier if we have an option to just move one VM from one suscription to another suscription. It seems very easy and is only for accounting issues.

  20. Yes, Need to know when a virtual machine reboots.

    There needs to be an email sent when a VM is rebooted. You can do that now if the processor on the VM goes above a certain threshold.

    planned  ·  Corey Sanders [MSFT] responded

    We do plan to add support to indicate when a VM has rebooted in the operation logs. We will investigate whether to also add support for emailing in this situation but i like the idea.
