  1. Update about licence charge when the Virtual Machine size is decreased

    Hi Team,

    I have deployed a DS13_V2 Standard Virtual Machine (Window Server 2016 Datacenter SQL Server 2016 Enterprise) for some testing.

    Later I changed the size of VM to Standard_B1 and kept in Running with an expectation that the VM will just cost me AUD 9.21.

    The VM actually cost me AUD 9.21 but I incurred a licence fee AUD 1382. There was no message when I resize the VM. At least, Microsoft should have updated me that licence will be charged extra as I had a feeling that VM cost includes the licence cost.

    @Microsoft: At least, update the…

        • Offer a VM for Server 2016 Essentials

          I want to launch a new VM and set up Server 2016 Essentials (which is the preference because it's for a small business, and saves us dealing with CALs). However it seems you MUST set the server up on-premise first and move it to azure as a VHD. The only images available on azure are datacenter editions which are far too advanced for these requirements.

          • Make SQL-Server VM work out of the box - SqlIaaSExtension.Service

            As it is, the SqlIaaSExtension.Service is causing the VM to eventually fail due to memory-buildup. MS should deliver working software!

            • To update this article "Step-by-Step: Remote Desktop Services on Windows Azure – A cost-effective alternative to Desktop as a Service"

              To successfully connect to VM with RDS role using domain user you have to edit RDP file, that you downloaded from new portal . You have to change value for this option: "administrative session:i:" from "1" --> "0'
              This valuable information should be documented and updated to this 2013 articale (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/keithmayer/2013/09/19/step-by-step-remote-desktop-services-on-windows-azure-a-cost-effective-alternative-to-desktop-as-a-service-part-2/) about RDS deployment in Azure.

                      • Portal Info should get refreshed Quickly

                        Hi,

                        I was ran into troubleshooting an issue just because the my IAAS VM dashboard does not reflected the IP address of the VM.
                        Since the IP did not get refreshed on the portal and old one was there , I was connecting to old IP. This took me around 4-5 hr to identify that the issue with public IP of VM,.

                        Please do the needful for this.

                            • 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.

                                • 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

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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.
