  2. Builtin feature to snooze or shutdown VMs on schedule

    Rather than customers writing their own code to snooze/shutdown VMs based on a schedule, could Microsoft provide a builtin feature in Azure?

  6. Deberian poner bien claro que solo ofrecen alta disponibilidad si el cliente usa un High availabilty Set; Azure reinicia las VM

    Azure reinicia las VM cuando se presenta alguna falla no mantiene la VM encendida moviendola a otro host para tratar con el inconveniente, "la reinicia" y si el problema de la maquina no se corrige la apaga y la mueve a otro host sin problemas, le importa poco si tu data se corrompe debido a ello; y cuando lo observas te piden que tengas un high availability set para contar con alta disponibilidad, contar con el SLA prometido y que no te veas afectado; lo que significa mas costos al duplicar cada VM pero eso no es todo ya que…

  10. Azure should be support expandable file size like thin provisioning in VMware

    We have a product having more than 10000 customer which comes in ova format ( expandable file size from 6.51 to 800GB). This file easily deployed in Vmware as well as AWS cloud. Now our customer wants support for Azure but Azure is supporting integer file size like 6GB,7GB ( as per discussion with support team). Also it supports fixed file size not expandable file size. If this kinds of support will provide by Azure then we both will be gain revenue. Otherwise we both will loose revenue.

  13. Start/Stop VMs during off-hours solution in Azure Automation - Weekend Option

    Good morning,
    "Start/Stop VMs during off-hours solution in Azure Automation" is a great solution to allow us to make easier the VM on/off.
    But please, is there the possibility to add the option "Stay off during weekend" or "stay off from... to ....".

  14. DSC extension install without running node configuration

    Installing the DSC extension should not run the node configuration.
    The node configuration is likely to change over time, might not exist at the time of install or could have errors. If any of those things are true, it's the responsibility of DSC in Automations to point this out, not the extension.

    The extension install should only go as far as registering with the automation account, configuring the LCM and setting the node configuration name.

    This is currently causing me problems with Terraform as the initial run fails every time due to the node configurations not existing at deployment time.…

  15. Avoid broken links on Azure web site

    On an Azure windows instance there is a file called DATALOSSWARNINGREADME.txt on disk D: referring to
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj672979.aspx. When I open that page it shows " Note

    This article will be removed from the Azure library in the coming weeks. Newer information is available on the Azure website. See About disks and VHDs for virtual machines and About images for virtual machines."

    So this will become a broken link!!
    (why the heck to web sites change their links all the time?)

  16. Azure Marketplace image for SQL Server 2017 editions on Windows Server 2016 - Server Core

    I would like to see a SQL Server 2017 editions on Windows Server 2016 - Server Core included in the Azure Marketplace. The marketplace currently only holds images for the SQL Server on full versions of Windows Server 2016 DC.

    Many DBAs are comfortable with SQL Server on Windows Server Core installations. It reduces the overhead over the UI in both resource usage and patches. Also allows for quickly (re)booting nodes to be horizontally scaled when required.

    Currently such a configuration can only be achieved by manually preparing a VM image and uploading it to Azure. Which also requires a…

  17. Support upgrading existing Azure VM with Windows Server 2012 R2 to Windows Server 2016

    How do I go about upgrading existing Azure VM with Windows Server 2012 R2 to Windows Server 2016? It seems like a big issue for many companies for adopting Windows Server 2016 in Microsoft Azure.

    "Microsoft server software support for Microsoft Azure virtual machines" article still states "Microsoft does not support an upgrade of the operating system of a Microsoft Azure virtual machine. Instead, you should create a new Azure virtual machine that is running the supported version of the operating system that is required and then migrate the workload."

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2721672/microsoft-server-software-support-for-microsoft-azure-virtual-machines

    Please support this scenario. Thanks

  18. Cluster Network Communication for Cluster Aware Updating

    As you know, Zero Downtime and small maintenance windows don't often come together well.

    We would like to leverage Cluster Aware Updating to patch our HA clusters. The problem is that the Cluster Network does not allow communication.

    We would like to see the network traffic enabled for the Cluster IP so that we may let automation safely patch and fail over.

  19. Offer SMB 3.0 support for Windows 7 machines.

    We need an update to enable SMB 3.0 support for Windows 7 machines. Older projects using NET USE scripts to attach to Azure storage can no longer access their containers.

    Windows 7 machines that use to access the file shares in a storage account can no longer connect to file shares using the NET USE command. As a long time user of Azure it feels like Microsoft has left us behind. Upgrading all our users to win 10 is not an easy task..

  20. Upgrade Custom Script Extension for Windows to include 'script' support (like Linux CSE 2.0)

    The 1.9 version of CSE for Windows only supports 'commandToExecute'. It should support passing a base64-encoded script like the Linux 2.0.x version.
