  1. Have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1.

    I suggest to have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1. Ref #117062215932932

    After adding DNS Suffix, the VM always goes into unresponsive status and has to be rebooted via portal. At time people just wait for the M to come up on its own but this never happens. It has to be manually rebooted.

  4. 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

  5. Linux AAD Login User Creation

    When a user is assigned one of the 'Virtual Machine x Login' roles on VM Access Control (IAM) the user should be created on the Linux OS.

    OR

    Provide a way to create these non standard Linux users programmatically.

    Many services, like RStudio Server, can make use of the AAD PAM module however the user needs to have first SSH'd on to the Linux OS one time to create the local user mapping. This is not ideal to have several hundred users having to SSH first before being able to login on the application.

  6. Linux PerfInsights

    There needs to be a page outlining the use for Linux PerfInsights! Azure does not have anything pointing to this tool and it needs it dearly!

  7. Should be possible on Linux DSVMs to allow for inbound traffic on Jupyter Notebook ports

    On Linux DSVMs, users report that they cannot allow for inbound traffic on Jupyter Notebook ports. From port 8888 up, they are not able to connect from any browser from the IP of FQDN address of the VM. On Linux DSVMs, it should be possible to allow for inbound traffic on Jupyter notebook ports (Port 8888 and up).

  9. Need a way to disable Linux VM 'RunShellScript' feature.

    Need a way to disable Linux VM 'RunShellScript' feature.

    We want to provide a Linux based Appliance on Azure.

    We provide an application oriented shell CLI, but do not to provide root shell access to avoid tinkering and tampering, which makes support difficult.

    We've already had to write code to remove the root sudo access that is automatically given to the users account(s).

    There is now the 'RunShellScript' feature which runs any commands as root. This does not even use the users account, it goes straight in a root. There needs to be a way to disable this, probably at…

  10. Speedup installing .net core SDK on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    I follow the steps to install dotnetcore on Ubuntu 16.04. This lines shows

    Installation Note
    --------------
    A command will be run during the install process that will improve project restore speed and enable offline access. It will take up to a minute to complete.

    After ~10-15 minutes it completes with the message Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.23-0ubuntu10) ...

    The screenshot clearly shows the activity. The install was started around 4:45 PM

  14. notify customers of waagent updates that that are necessary to keep old vms working properly with azure fabric

    We have been bitten many times by waagent / azure fabric upgrades that cause the networking or other fabric related functionalities to fail as a result of outdated versions of waagent. It would be prudent on Microsofts part to alert customers in some manner, whether it be email or the portal, of such changes for vm's that may be affected by an upgrade to either of these pieces.

    Without any sort of bi-directional console, rebooting a server and not having it come back up due to an an outdated waagent that now cant acquire an ip from the azure fabric…

  15. indicate through the cli/portal when a instance is actually reachable.

    The cli json output only indicates when the provisioningState: "Succeeded" however there is no indication in the json or through "az vm list" when the instance is actually reachable (via ssh or RDP).

    This is particularly important when you created an automation workflow dependent on when the instance is reachable. The reach-ability is quite variable dependent on whether it is a GPU instance (NC or NV) or one of the compute (F -series) instances.

  16. Consistent SCSI target IDs across reboots

    Linux SCSI target IDs change across reboots resulting in some really strange ordering of sda, sdb, sdc etc. Sometimes the ephemeral disk ends up on the end of the list, sometimes the data disk(s) go to the front. It's near impossible to import workloads into Azure with this device inconsistency.

  19. VM creation interface

    Currently, you need to type in all the server details before you are able to select basic features of your machine (i.e. you need to type in a username, password/key, resource group) before you can select machine type.

    You should be able to see whether you are able to create the VM you need before having to do all that housekeeping, especially if you need to check across regions or subscriptions.

  20. waagent - allow swap size as percentage

    Please add a waagent setting to allow swap size on resource disk to be specified as percentage - either percentage of resource disk size or percentage of total physical memory .

    Reason: It would enable a single custom image with swap settings specified that can be used on multiple VM sizes.
