  1. Show VM shutdown timestamp on portal

    Customer always need to query vm shotdown timestamp. It would be convenient for users to view the time on portal directly.

  2. Basic_A0 size should not list out when create Windows 2016 server from Azure portal

    The least RAM required for Windows 2016 server deployment is 512MB to boot. while Basic_A0 size VM has only 768MB Memory size. This size is not suitable for Windows 2016 server deployment in Azure. Since it will require more than 768 MB to login and operate normal things.

    Can you please move the Basic_A0 size out of the VM size list when we are creating Windows 2016 servers? this can avoid some issue.

  3. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware

    Thanks, dear.. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware encoding, for 18$ flat price.. AZURE should have 4 high performance processors for 3$, + 4 GB RAM + 3$, + Storage usage + 0.10 cent per GB :)

  4. Azure don't give any warning and providing size which will not work for the image we select

    Azure don't give any warning and providing size which will not work for the image we select:

    You can provision a windows Server 2016 with Basic_A0. But the size is below requirement and you won't be able to login and make that server work.

    Most of the time server will go in the failed state.

    I recommend, if azure can give some kind of warning of totally don't provide the size. when the selected size don't meet the minimum requirement for the selected server.

  5. Automatic snapshot before Windows Update installation (IaaS)

    Sometimes Windows Update problems can cause major issues with Azure VMs, therefore is it possible to create functionality where the OS can notify Azure before it installs updates, and then at this point Azure can take an automatic snapshot?

  8. Swapping the unhealthy physical node at starting VM

    For running VM, "Service healing" will prevents down-time.
    On the other hands, for initiation of VM, user have to wait for VM fully starts and user cannot detect the reason why VM starts slowly.

    I would propose that Azure automatically retry starting VM on another node in case Azure detect unhealthy node events.

  9. Support for Teams & SFB on Windows Virtual Desktop

    With the release of Windows Virtual desktops on Azure, the multisession W10 offering does not support either of the Collaboration Tools, SFB or Teams. The support of these office apps with pass through support for peripherals is vital to make this offering viable. Please can this be looked at and delivered when the service goes public on Azure

  12. Add "VM JIT Requestor" role to Resource/RG level role list

    Quite often, I want to grant users login access to an Azure VM without giving them contributor access to modify the metadata associated with the VM itself. However, while Reader access gives users access to the Azure portal, and Virtual Machine User Login access allows users to login to the VM once in the portal, neither the aforementioned roles nor any other predefined role provides the ability to request JIT access to the VM.

    My workaround has been to create a cusotm role with the following allowed action: Microsoft.Security/locations/jitNetworkAccessPolicies/initiate/action

    However, this seems like an action that should either be allowed…

  13. Successfully perform Windows Updates on General Purpose VM's

    When creating a Standard A1 v2 virtual machine in Azure, Windows Updates do not perform correctly. Azure Support have advised that the Virtual Machine needs to be increased in size, but i would expect all virtual machines offered in the Azure Portal to be able to perform Windows Updates...

  15. M series VMs in North Central US

    SQL server virtual machines require a higher RAM/CPU (M series in North Central US) ratio than can be supplied using the standard VM sizes. Constrained CPU sizes were introduced to address this issue (eg E Series). Since the standard E and D series machines can be reserved please also allow the RAM constrained versions to be reserved so we can control workload of SQL server VMs.

    An ETA would be helpful.

  17. disk type

    During VM creation, it should be speicifed as P6 for Premium disks which is free. Else this creates confusion during creation and unnecessary cost will be involved.

  18. Virtual Windows would be even better if older Windows apps that I own could be run in a container and accessed through virtual Windows 10

    I like Micrografx Designer. I think it last ran under Windows XP. It would be nice if Virtual Windows could run older apps in a container and have them accessible through virtual Windows 10. I realize that there is a problem of licensing and all that. But the whole idea of planned obsolescence, the company owns the license, everything craps out when the company ceases to exist, is what's wrong with computing in a big way. Imagine if all the centuries of written literature crapped out when the writers died because they were only licensing their works to you -…

  19. Global Admin should have capability to view Reserved Instance reservations.

    Global admins SHOULD be able to view (or at least manage permissions) of Reserved Instance reservations in the Azure portal. Currently, only the purchaser and account owner can manage the permissions. This is contradictory to everything else in Azure, where a Global Admin alywas has the capability to change permissions (acting as a User Access Administrator).

    On a secondary note, Read-only admins in the Enterprise Agreement portal should also have the ability to view reserved instance data.

  20. Windows VM agent for - 2008 Standard/Enterprise 64 bit OS

    Hello as we are encouraging clients to move their Windows 2008 standard/Enterprise workloads to Azure sighting extended security updates for 3 years. But we dont have a compatible VMagent that can run on for these workloads there by limiting the usage of extensions
