  1. Windows Server 2016 RTM is a problem the forest functional level and domain functional level(Windows Server 2016)

    [Install a new Active Directory forest on an Azure virtual network]
    Add a Language(Japanese) ->Promote this server to a domain controller
    ->[Active Directory Domain Services Configration Wizard]

    By default, these settings are "Windows Server Technical Preview" in a new forest root domain.

    Is There a problem with the display name in the case of the Japanese?

  3. SSH support for Windows

    Now that there is a Microsoft supported OpenSSH port for windows:
    https://github.com/PowerShell/Win32-OpenSSH

    Please make it a first class citizen for remote access to windows machines. This isn't a complete list, but here are some of the items needed:
    * It should either be part of the base market place images, or enabled via an ARM template (like you can with WinRM)
    * Authorized keys for users should support being set via an ARM template (like you can with Linux)
    * more?

  4. ARM Virtual Machine Template

    We need the ability to upload a local image of a Virtual Machine customize on-premises and use it as a template image for our deployment. This is only possible right now with a deploy of a customized vhd through json template, and it is a long procedure and not so easy to do for all the users. It will be great and easier if you can include this possibility in the new portal, included the upload of the VHD disk that is also have SLOW performance and all the customization of the VM in a wizard.

  5. Add ability to provision VM initially without a local account

    In a corporate environment where all VMs are domain joined (using the VM domain joining extension) the local account is a nuisance.

    It would be nice if:
    * you could simply not have a local account at all (perhaps with the ability to add it later via the VM access extension that can be used to reset the password currently)
    * you could specify a local admin AD user/group via the VM domain join extension
    * or alternatively add a local account expiration time that you can specify through an ARM template, which would allow me to say it should…

  6. Ability to Hibernate VMs to support DevTest workflos

    The new DevTest Azure portal feature has the ability to turn off VMs on a schedule to support dev/testing without breaking the budget. It would be nice if the VMs could be hibernated instead so that developers would not lose their development sessions/window settings etc. when they start off in the morning. But I understand that the ability to hibernate VMs in Azure is not currently a core feature that exists. It would be very nice if that feature could be added. I'm sure there are other use cases where VM hibernation could be very handy too.

  7. Deploy Win7 32bit OS on Azure

    I need to deploy Win7 32bit OS on Azure.
    I have uploaded many win7 32bit images to Azure but fails to connect all of them with rdp. All the images are created by Hypher-V. Any one knows how to solve this problem?

  8. Create a Windows 10 template for consumers

    There are so many reasons!
    - Continuum obviously
    - Deliver Windows 10 for BYOD, especially Mac OS & iOS
    - Easy Cloud options for legacy x86 LoB application vendors
    - Security!
    - Use the same Windows on multiple devices and form factors - from TVs to mobile phones.

  9. Unexpected restart of Azure VMs due to Azure Healthy Monitoring system

    Recently in our deployment in SE Asia (Singapore) DC, we had an unexpected restart of one of our VMs which is a Production Application Server. The Database server was fine. In 20 minutes it was back, but that 20 minute happened to be peak hours for our customers and we received quite a few brickbats on the reliability. This is 3rd such instance and it was a very tough scenario with customers who are hosted on that server.

    We don't have Availability Sets configured. We also understand, Azure's SLA of 99.95% can be realized only when we configure Availability Sets.…

  10. Auto update of ports

    It is very problem to open the ports in office environment. from past one month I am working from home as azure port are blocked in my office, we need to follow up with my local network team to open ports every time when we create new VM, instead of that we need give the range of ports to our network admin to open but we are not sure while creating VM what is ports open by azure, we have feature of giving manually while creating but I need to check for free ports in my range and give it.

  11. Clone complete Resource Group

    For DEV/TEST/PROD environments, it would be great to have a the possibility to clone all resources within a resource group to a new one. (Public IP's and other unique resources will be an issue), but as far as the VM's are cloned, it would save A LOT of time!

  12. Eliminate ghost network adapters

    When you deallocate and re-allocate a VM the net adapter is re-created and a ghost is left behind. After 200 or so restarts SMB stops working.
    A known fix exists, but I feel this should be automated by azure

  13. Impossible to connect with Virtual Machine

    Hello,
    I've been really trying to use Azure Virtual Machine for a few days.
    I only managed to connect to my virtual machine once, and even then the machine stopped working, froze, require restart. etc, so I couldn't really use it.
    It was a very bad experience and a terrible waste of my time.

    Since I created machines, but couldn't use them, I would kindly ask to return my credits.
    Best regards,

  14. Support MSDN images (SharePoint, SQL Server, BizTalk, Dynamics) in Azure Resource Manager templates

    Support MSDN images (SharePoint, SQL Server, BizTalk, Dynamics) in Azure Resource Manager templates for dev/test scenarios.

    For example the following 3 VM SharePoint template: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-sharepoint-farm-azure-preview/ should be able to deploy using SQL and SharePoint images from MSDN, thus not attracting production licensing for dev scenarios.

  15. Licensing Included

    You should display what licenses are included in the current VM, Whatever it is Windows Server, Window Desktop, Sql Server, Oracle, Visual Studio.
    Licensing is very important, and we want to make sure that all licenses in use in a particular VM are being correctly accounted.

  16. Increase VM Maximum username of 15 characters

    Increase VM Maximum username of 15 characters to 30 characters. More characters = better security.

    Why this was reduced when new VM's and containers where added is unexplained anywhere I could find. It makes no sense from a security point of view

  18. DNS (PaaS not IaaS)

    Offer DNS Services as platform as a service instead of infrastructure as a service. I know that this is already in trials, but it needs a visual interface (because we're not all robots), a bit like Google Cloud or Rack Space. The day you release this, I will use it.
