  1. Share the SharePoint Server Farm creation scripts

    The Marketplace contains a gallery item to create a SharePoint Server Farm. Can the items (scripts/extensions/etc) that are used to create this be shared as a sample that we start with to build our own custom SharePoint Server Farm solutions on top of?

    • Virtual machine that works would be a great improvement

      I pay my subscription for a virtual machine on Azure but it stopped working this night and now I get "Failed to start virtual machine". Nobody answers at the support and nobody cares. Great Microsoft. Keep on billing me.

        I am sorry to hear this, Cedric. I could not find your MSDN issue by searching. If you could attach the link, i can follow-up.

      • Dynamics AX Machine

        A Dynamics AX machine (the usual demo machine) could be really useful!

            • Found a bug creating VM's in Azure

              When creating new Virtual Machines from Gallery (Standard Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter)
              On Page 3 there is a problem attaching the new VM's to a Virtual Network.

              But if I change the Cloud service (DDL) to an existing Cloud service, the Network information is displayed. After that I can change it back to auto generate a new Cloud Service. But keep my Virtual Network configuration.

              It would be nice if the Virtual Network where visible from the beginning when creating many virtual machines in a network.

              See screendumps that is attached.

              Best regards,
              Tobias Jonsson

              • Virtual Machine with Visual Studio & SQL Express on it

                I love the idea of developing in the cloud and as a developer who is just gettting started I would like to have an image that has Visual Studio Express on it along with SQL Express. This would allow me to quickly get going, get money then buy a MSDN :-)

                • Enable to manage your own endpoint list.

                  Allow to manage (add/edit/change endpoints) to the default presented endpoint list. Example I from time to time need to enable special endpoints times in a repetitive manner. this will allow save my settings in the cloud and avoid me to keep a record of the settings I use.

                  A option to reset to default will be also handy.

                    • Virtual Machines Disks view must show disk size

                      In Virtual Machines when you switch to Disks view, it’s very useful to show each disk size! I mean a new column with this important information.
                      Please, this is a simple information, but helps a lot.

                      • Provide single VM instance RDS capability

                        Standalone RDS (RemoteApp and VDI) is only available for Windows Server 2008 R2 and not for Windows Server 2012. Server 2012 requires active directory and also will not allow it to be installed on the same VM as RDS. Please provide the capability to run all services needed for RDS on a single Windows Server 2012 VM.

                        • Update Management - Scheduled Update monthly date ignored upon creation

                          Hi
                          upon creation of schedule for servers to be updated a specific date once a month is ignored if you do not change start day on top of UI. The server(s) will be updated on startday and time. Not as intended on the specific date the first time. You should remove start date, when selecting periodic updates. Alternative automatically change start date to the day the first updates should be applied according to schedule. I had servers rebooting yesterday because of this error and not at the 10th as scheduled.
                          Kind regards
                          Asger
