  1. BUG: Creating a Linux VM with SSH certificate from portal fails

    I'm trying to create a Linux virtual machine (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 7/25/2014 release) in a virtual network. Whenever I specify an SSH certificate instead of a password, I keep getting an error that the machine creation failed. The certificate upload succeeds, however.
    This has happened in the past as well, but I didn't worry about it then since I was focused on a PaaS deployment. Please fix this! If it's a matter of some required settings combination not being met, please highlight that in the UI.

  2. warning when changing host caching from read to none

    There should be a more clearer in the azure portal when you change the host caching from read to none, because the disk is unavailable or a few minutes in the Linux VM, the warning is there when you change a disk from to read/write from read, but not when changing the host caching from read to none.

  4. Include the code in the URL

    I get this prompt when I log into the machine:

    To sign in, use a web browser to open the page https://microsoft.com/devicelogin and enter the code BTE2LNW3L to authenticate. Press ENTER when ready.

    This means I have to copy the code, and click through the url.

    If you made the code a part of the URL, it would save me a step and reduce friction to use this login mechanism.

    e.g., This message would be way more useful:

    To sign in, use a web browser to open the page: https://microsoft.com/devicelogin?code=BTE2LNW3L to authenticate. Press ENTER when ready.

  6. Support for marketplace VMs that run custom OS

    Provide a solution to update/install the mobility service agent/extension on a VM from the Markeplate with closed OS to perform the replication job - By close OS I mean that no one would be able to SSH to the VM

  7. Using M208s_v2 is super hard.

    The necessary image for this vm instance is the GEN2 SUSE linux, and the documentation to install the azure cli fails for this instance and image combo.

    Also, finding the correct image for this vm instance was not clear at all.

    And trying to increase the volume disk size using the azure portal fails.

  8. creation of public private key pairs on the portal

    When deploying a new Linux based VM, create a shortcut to create a SSH keypair and download the private/public key straight from the portal... saves downloading puttygen or similar..

  9. I suggest you make Azure less complicated

    , let users supply their own iso's with simple user interface and let users deploy their linux vm with a simple user interface like the way vmware is setup. I dont have to pick a group or container, I don't need this or that I just need the vmware software and an iso. That's why Linux and Microsoft have had such a difficult history of co op, linux is simple and straight forward little bells and whistles, Microsoft just adds layer and layer and layers of junk.

  10. (Linux + d2_v2 + dedicated) Why not on Azure China ?

    This link could lead you to think we may have it.
    https://docs.azure.cn/zh-cn/virtual-machines/linux/
    The same way we have it with Azure Global.
    But no! Why is that Microsoft cannot have a standard offer and impose its subcontractors (here 21Vianet) to match the Standard?
    My coffees at Starbucks and Costa in Shanghai respect the respective standards.
    Thank you to urge this matter as we are now forced to consider AWS just to host our VMs with Ubuntu.

    Requesting to consider and develop option to migrate the inplace os upgrade for both Linux and Windows. For Example RHEL 6.x to 7.x etc...

    This is a genric future plan or view any clients would have and this blockage in cloud is some way blocking the plans for few clients.

    Please consider.

  12. Allow encrypted Linux OS disk settings to persist through generalization and image creation

    Allow Linux encrypted OS disk settings to persist through generalization and image creation to avoid having to wait hours or days for a new virtual machine to be encrypted after deployment.

  13. In order to bring your own linux license, Linux VM has to be built from command line, instead of GUI.

    Microsoft should have better communication to let end-user know it.
    Thanks.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. Allow setting dns name server at VM provision time

    Allow setting dns name server at VM provision time. On Linux VMs it is currently necessary to modify the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf to supersede the reddog.microsoft.com search domain that gets set by Azure. Being able to configure this at provision would make the DHCP/DNS process moer similar to the way AWS and GKE provision their VMs.

  20. 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.
