  3. Show the assignment list of device path for data disks.

    We didn't find the assignment list of device path for data disks.
    We want to check this data more easily. For example, we can find the assignment list in the management portal.

    disk name A - \sdc\
    disk name B - \sdd\ etc...

  4. Please do not force move the user to new protal

    Most of our admins are accustomed to the old portal and force move to the new portal which looks completely different and definitely has a learning curve will severely affect our business.

  6. Please incorporate support for RHEL in Azure

    Hi team,

    At present, Azure does not support RHEL even though it supports other variants of Linux like CentOS. Please incorporate support for RHEL in Azure as it's one of the common Linux platform used across the globe.

  7. Please engage Microsoft support engineer when supporting CentOS

    Please engage Microsoft support engineer when supporting CentOS

    I filed SR tickets to OpenLogic regarding CentOS kernel, but still no response.
    I request Microsoft Azure Support Team to support and investigate Cent OS itself.
    If there is kernel bug in CentOS, I hope Microsoft Azure Engineers contact OpenLogic directly as official communication path.

    -Japanese version-
    マイクロソフトでCentOSサポート対応してほしい

    CentOSはOpenLogicのサポートということになっているが、サポートの対応が悪く、返信も来ない。
    マイクロソフトのAzureサポートチームにてCentOSのサポートを行うようにしてほしい。
    Kernelの不具合についても、正式にマイクロソフトからOpenLogicに調査・修正依頼を出すような体制を整えてほしい。

  11. How attach Data Disk for /opt folder

    As OS hardening process, I want to attach Data Disk for /opt folder, as there is no single user mode to move the existing /opt files in to Data Disk and mount volume for /opt folder.
    How to mount extra Data volume for /opt folder?

    Even I tried by De-Provision the VM and attach the OS Disk to other, Then Copied the /opt files from the OS disk into a new data disk and make entry FSTAB(OS Disk FSTAB file) entry to mount new disk on boot. Then I provision the VM with that disk attached, everything in vein.
    please…

  13. Localization about descriptions of gallery images

    Descriptions of gallery images are provided ONLY in English. Some of them include very important information for Azure users. ( ex. NOTE in the description for CentOS 6.6 image)

    Please translate descriptions so that every user can read them more easily.

  14. Endpoint API calls are dropped silently (via salt-cloud)

    When I add multiple endpoints one after each other, some of them are dropped silently...
    I get an OK response for all calls, but only some are executed in the end, so I have to repeat and repeat until all my endpoints get created?

    This really sucks and I think this is related, that there can be only one add-endpoint-call at the same time (which takes 1-2 minutes)... and this also sucks!

  15. In Japanese translation message, CR and LF symbol are shown in it.

    Original (English) message is p2-eng.png
    Japanese translated message is p2-jp.png

    backslash-r and backslash-n is shown in this message.

    Bacause of histrical and complex reason, prefix of these sequence is not backslash, but yen-mark in japanease charset Shift-JIS.
    However Unicode allow both character...

  16. Please fix mistranslation message of 'Create an image from VHD' panel.

    When we forget checking 'I have run waagent -deprovision on the virtual machine' checkbox and click OK button, we'll see 'Required' message. (p1-eng.png)

    However, in Japanese language, the message shows '必要なディスク容量' (p1-jp.png)
    It's mean 'storage size which we require'. ...I'm confused very much.

    Please fix this message, ex. '必須のオプションです'

  17. Password lengths are not well defined

    When I enter a password for a new Ubuntu LTS VM instance, the Azure web interface tells me the maximum password length is 123 characters. When I make a password that long, VM creation fails and says that passwords may only be between 6 and 72 characters. Please work on making the interface and error messages more consistent.

  18. Getting weird error while creating VM

    When I try to provision an VM, the protal shows progress as 'provisioning'. But then I see some error on the notification bar at the bottom, "Windows Azure is currently performing an operation with x-ms-requestid xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx on this deployment that requires exclusive access". It is EXTREMELY annoying. And apparently there is no solution to it except waiting for 3-8 hours.

  19. Can we have a way to get the log file when VM failed to boot up ?

    I found it is very difficult to find out what happen without a log file when vm fail to boot up.
    I spend a lot of time only to figure out what I had changed since last time I make it boot up.

    You can log the virtual console to a file that we can click a button to get it.

    This is great feedback. Let us dig into what this would entail to pull out these logs as part of our logging system.

    Thanks for the feedback. If folks could vote on this to help determine whether this is a common environment required for PHP development.
