      • may be bug

        Hi,

        I have created a instance of virtual machine named 'ark-java8' for test.
        after the test, I deleted it.

        and I created another instance, and deleted it, too.

        again, I create another instance, it's name is 'ark-test-kk'.

        But its instance name is set to 'ark-java8' and DNS host name is 'ark-test-kk.cloudapp.net'.

        It will be shown in a image attached. Left top is 'ark-java8' and Bottom right is 'ark-test-kk'.

        I think it is bug.

        with best regards,
        koichi kurahashi

        • o idea

          Improve your service, because it doesn't work at all.
          My vm is on Running Provisioning since 4 hours.
          Too bad.

          • vip

            Permit a limit increase where a deployment requires more than 5 VIPs. This would be beneficial for customers that host multi-tentant applications with more than one public site name.

              • Speedup VM boot up

                When I tried to create a Windows VM it took forever for it to become available. That's absolutely unacceptable!!!

                • Info in Pricing FAQ is wrong.

                  http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-machines/

                  Go to FAQ - General
                  "If my deployed instance says stopped, am I still getting billed?"

                  In the Table, STATE="Stopped"; BILLED="No".
                  But Details = "If the VM is stopped (...) the software is not billed. For allocated stopped VMs, the cores are still billed".

                  So, BILLED should be "Yes"

                  • VM Fails when upgrading DS4, stops working with DS13

                    I was upgrading my VM from 4 cores to DS4 which is the smaller 8 core. Wouldn't do it, and failed everytime I tried. I then upgraded to DS13 which is another 8 core with more memory and that worked. Tried to go back down to the DS4, but failed again. After a day the DS13 crashed and wouldn't start back up, even when restarting from the portal. I then had to try to upgrade to DS14 which is 16 cores which I didnt need but it worked. I shouldnt have to pay this extra money for hardware I dont…

                        Notice that you cant leave a support ticket or support incident when you notice an issue with the service.

                        What is the best way to notify Microsoft of some type of negative experience with the service?

                            • just a complaining

                              I've spent two days to prepare an exchange 2013 lab which including 3 VMs, but failed! It's extremely discouraged me!
                              After I feel the lab was almost ready, one VM was unable to contact remotely by anyway. I had no idea.
                              Then I re-created all VMs, but the long time of provisioning VM defeated utterly me again.
                              I think I would forget Azure VMs. Hope you have a perfect future.

                                  • I need Windows 7 or 8.1 and visual studio professional on premium storage, BizSpark, West Europe

                                    There are VM's with Server2012 and visual studio community, but I don't want a server as it is used only by a single developer (we also have problems with visual svn which we do not get on our local windows 7 machines).

                                    There are also a lot of VM on premium storage, West europe that are exclusive to MSDN, but we can't use them through our BizSpark subscription (although we did sign up for MSDN through our BizSpark subscription)

                                    • Custom Attributes for Virtual Machines

                                      Consider a set of custom attributes a Customer can maintain on a Virtual Machine object in Azure.
                                      Helpful for Automation, custom reporting, etc.
                                      Should be easy to implement, already known in VMM and would enable Migration Scenarios.

                                      • CREATE TEST FRAMEWORK FOR IAAS TESTING

                                        There is no Test framework today to test the IAAS hosting. All the automation testing is difficult when handling multiple subscriptions.
                                        Microsoft should release a framework for this
