  3. Change the VM OS Disk Size during Creation

    Hello,

    At this point, you can't select the OS disk size for your VM during the creation and if you want to reduce the disk size, you need to perform loads of steps.
    It will be really good to have the option to select the disk size during the VM creation. So we would be able to chose a smaller or even bigger disk size for UnManaged and Managed disks.

  6. Note section or some option to chnage the name of the Virtual machine

    It would really help if the name of the server can be changed from the Portal and if possible if a notes section can be added in the Virtual machine Overview Tab

  8. Cannot create a VM using GRS Backup in another region

    It looks like Microsoft is busy creating many products but they are not thinking about the basic necessity of product. I have given so much suggestion to Microsoft for product improvement and they implemented. Thanks for that. Currently, I just wanted to know Why you are not allowing the customer to spin up any VM from recovery GRS vault to create VM in the paired region? If this is not possible then I don't think so there is any real use case of GRS backup. Looks like they have not thought about the basic of the product. If a data…

  9. Azure PowerShell check remaining data disk space for VM

    Azure PowerShell is not providing a facility to check the remaining data disk space from the remote PowerShell after login to the azure account.
    Example –

    ((get-azurermvm -resourcegroupname “rgname” -name “vmname”).StorageProfile).DataDisks #FROM THIS WE CAN GET THE DISK NAMES AND TOTAL SPACE BUT no remaining space in the data disks.

  11. Azure VM's security alerts come as high level without checking the Disk OS whether it is supported or not.

    On our Azure portal, we do get alerts that the VM is not encrypted and it should be encrypted, but when we try to encrypt, it shows that the VM OS version is not supported. I would suggest to check the OS version before raising an alert , it became a false alarm for us.

    I cannot remove the security alert on this VM, Can you enable this.

  13. 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?

  18. 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…
