  1. unable to see pricing for some images

    Customers are unable to see the pricing for some images while creating the VM. Example Canonical Ubuntu images. Although, the images are free. It would great for the customers to see the price as free rather than to see " Pricing unavailable for these images.

  2. Azure Fence agent

    Azure Fence agent - Need to reduce the failover time from 10 -15 Minutes to minimum

    If you do not want to invest in one additional virtual machine, you can also use the Azure Fence agent. The downside is that a failover can take between 10 to 15 minutes if a resource stop fails or the cluster nodes cannot communicate which each other anymore.

  4. Should be able to copy snapshots between regions in Azure Portal

    You have a powershell script to do this documented here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/scripts/virtual-machines-windows-powershell-sample-copy-snapshot-to-storage-account

    However, it would be much more convenient if you exposed this functionality via the Azure Portal.

  5. Allow parallel execution of RunCommand

    Currently the Azure RunCommand only allows a single command to be executed at a time. It is also quite slow to start executing. It would be nice to have the command start executing faster and be able to run multiple commands in parallel.

  6. 'AADLoginForLinux' extension should create an AAD device

    AADLoginForLinux extension should create an AAD device so there isn't any hard dependency on realmd.

  8. Make Ubuntu VM NVMe storage mounting more robust

    I experience periodically that, when I start a storage-optimized Ubuntu VM (size L32s), the NVMe disk is not mounted. When I try sudo mount /mnt, I get: mount: /mnt: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. and no obvious way to fix this. Other times, the machine starts and the disk is mounted fine. No obvious pattern. Please make mounting more robust.

  9. Create way to do adhoc backup policy to create an image of VM and name the policy or image.

    I have done a lengthy install on RHEL 7 VM in which I would like to create an image as a new starting point. The next install I will be doing requires all these dependencies and it's very time consuming. I can go and do a backup and restore of the VM of a given date but there is no way to do an adhoc backup and call that my "gold image" or some unique name so I"ll know that's my starting point. I guess I could use clonezilla, kickstart or docker to create the image but it would be…

  10. Auto-mount file share when storage access keys are refreshed

    Currently, to mount azure file share on Linux VM, we use mount command provide storage access key. If someone refresh their storage access keys, they need to un-mount the file share and then re-mount it. There should be an easier approach to handle this scenario. This become pain when you have auto-refresh policy in your organization.

  12. beginning Azure, stumbling trying to invoke basic commands on Ubunto virtual machine

    hi, My free Azure is running. I started a Ubunto virtual machine. I click the "greater than" cursor symbol, to start up the command line. The blue screen at the bottom of the browser opens. ls command works!
    1. why do I get an error when running ifcongig?
    2. why do I get an error attempting to run apt-get update?
    3. should Get-NetIPConfiguration be working in powershell to an Ubunto machine?


    1. PS Azure:> ifconfig
      ifconfig : The term 'ifconfig' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.
      Check the spelling of the name,…

  13. Linux Kernel 3.10.0-957.5.1.el7 networking problem

    I recently updated a CentOS machine with the mentioned kernel and networking things went wrong after upgrade. Some packets couldn't be delivered to application layer of OS and left without any reply.

    Jointly with the help of support persons, we found the problem is the kernel version and I downgraded it to 862 and it works fine back.

    I tested that kernel in other environments than Azure and all other environments I tested work fine. At lease 2 environments, one another public cloud and one on-premise virtualization.

    I think some things are going wrong with Azure virtualization and I suggest…

  14. Set default permission to temporary disk (/mnt/resource)

    In linux environment default permission of /mnt/resource is 755.
    It is nice to have a functionality to set any permission to that.

  15. Missing GPU after reboot

    I using Standard NC24rs_v3 (24 vcpus, 448 GB memory) size VMs with the ``data science virtual machine'' image in Azure. It works fine at the first times with 4 GPUs. But if I rebooted the VM, nvidia-smi can only find 1 GPU. I had to recreate a new VM again and again. I think this's a bug about the cuda driver.

    I used the following commands to install CUDA 10.

    sudo apt-get -y remove --purge nvidia*
    sudo apt-get -y autoremove
    mkdir ~/tmp
    cd ~/tmp
    wget https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x8664/cuda-repo-ubuntu160410.0.130-1amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu160410.0.130-1amd64.deb
    sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86

  16. add instructions for uploading local files to new VM

    one of the first things a new VM user might need to do is upload files to the new VM. I had to dig deep and succeeded only in setting up RDP (by installing Xrdp on the vm); but that option has two problems:
    1) this works only with a password (so don't deploy the vm with the default azureuser and key)
    2) setting RDP to include local files does not give permission the logged on user to access the local files

    the workaround for 1 if you setup azureuser with a key is to add a user with a…

  17. AAD Integrated login for Linux should copy files from /etc/skel on first login

    Upon first login to a Linux VM using an AAD account, the files in /etc/skel, or the location stored in the SKEL variable in /etc/default/useradd, should be copied in the newly-created /home/$newuser directory. This worked correctly for a locally-created account on the same VM.

  18. Usage of RunShellScript should be logged and even notified

    As RunShellScript allows for root access, it may be potentially abused and ought to be logged if it is being utilised. Perhaps there should even be a notification if it gets utilised

  19. Why doesn't Azure Instance Metadata Service include hostname?

    if metadata usage is allowed and the name from metadata does not match hostname, can Azure return metadata name and not the hostname?

  20. add python3 and pip3 to yum

    I just created a new virtual server and for some reason can only get python 2.7

    please make python3 and pip3 available through "yum install"

    I tried installing python33 through yum because it seemed as close to python3 as it gets, but that didn't help.
