  1. Allow to set the value of shutdown timeout (force shutdown)

    According to the current behavior, if it is not completed within 10 minutes after the stop(deallocate) operation of Azure VM, I believe that the stop will be forced.

    However, it may take a lot of time due to the stop processing of process or OS task.

    I hope to be able to determine the forced out timeout time ourselves.

  2. Azure VM limits should be visible on VM Overview page graphs

    In a support case I found one of my VMs was being throttled because it was over disk write limit; the performance (other colors, not red) and limits (in red) should be on the graphs on the overview. This seriously impacts availability when VMs are being throttled and makes for an insidious and hard to understand issue. All performance limits should be visible! Please implement?

  3. Virtual Machine Image API - Include OS disk size info

    Virtual Machine Image API reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/compute/virtualmachineimages/get

    Managed Image API reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/compute/images/get

    The returned objects from the virtual machine images API do not include information of the image size on the OS disk, whereas the API for managed images do include this information. This prevents the possibility of creating a solution to verify whether a potential deployment of a VM has appropriately sized disks or not based on the selected marketplace image, while this capability is present if the deployment is using a managed image. I don't see why there shouldn't have feature parity in this regard between the two API…

  4. resize VM without reboot

    Currently if you want to change the VM Size of Azure, VM is restarted. VM Resize shouldn't require downtime and it should be done in the backend. As CPU and RAM is still throttle when we use more resources then why can't we just remove the throttling limit and inform customer that VM is resized from A to D series when request is raised of resize?

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  5. History of scheduled event

    For the maintenance that doesn't require a reboot, customers can know it only through Scheduled Events API.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/maintenance-and-updates?toc=/azure/virtual-machines/linux/toc.json&bc=/azure/virtual-machines/linux/breadcrumb/toc.json#maintenance-that-doesnt-require-a-reboot

    Several customer requests easier way to grasp the affected resources and that history (e.g. dashboard).

  7. virtual machine list export to csv

    When we go to All resources we can see Export to CSV button on top menu so that all the resources can be downloaded easily.

    When we go to Virtual Machine there is no such functionality available.
    There are lots of scripting needs to be done to achieve this and also previously we use to be able to copy and paste it into excel and it used to copy all the columns which we've selected. But that too isn't working now.

    Can you please give us the functionality to export the VM details into CSV

  8. | Temporary Disk | Add on/off options for temporary disk when creating Azure VM

    End user could ignore the DATA LOSS file on temporary disk which comes from Azure VM by default, if it's possible to add on/oof options for temporary disk when creating Azure VM?

    One more thing, when the VM is using temporary disk, if it's possible to pop-up a dialog box to notify the user that the data in temporary disk could be lose after stopping/deallocating the VM? (Like the public ip pop-up diaglog in the attachment)

  9. API for Disk Attachments that does not require updating the VM model

    Currently to attach a Data Disk to a Virtual Machine requires submitting this as a part of the Virtual Machine payload (e.g. a appending to the list of data disks).

    Whilst this works when you want to define the Virtual Machine definition in a single payload, unfortunately this makes it challenging when breaking this apart into multiple payloads to provide a better user experience - which means that we've had to fake this via calling the API sequentially using locks to ensure multiple disk attachments happen sequentially.

    This functionality already exists for the DevTest Labs Service - which has an…

  10. The target resources affected by planned maintenance

  11. Enable AHB for RHEL and SLES in Azure

    Redeployment is painful. Customers have a tendency to deploy PAYG during POC phase and then want to switch to a BYOS model to take advantage of cost savings later. Switching Linux VMs from PAYG to BYOS in Azure requires a disruptive VM redeployment to a different image. AHB for Linux would remove the need for the redeployment.

  12. add Nvidia T4 based GPU as VM

    The T4 based virtual machines are available in AWS (its G4DN line) and these are good both for ML and also graphic intense operations.

    For us it enables our product to support ray tracing which is not supported in older gen GPU's

  13. Add the ability to set the max IOPS the SQL / Windows Backup Extension will utilise

    There should be the ability to set the max IOPS that either extension will utilise during backup operations.

    We've a SQL workload that can be adequately served by the resources of a certain VM size other than when backups are taken (as the DB is 100GB+).

    When backups run our Availability Groups are flapping due to VM disk throughput throttling causing the backups to fail.

    We have therefore had to upgrade the VMs just to allow the backups to run. The VMs are now significantly underutilised during BAU.

    We don't have access to the SQL Server Resource Governor as we…

  16. Provide an easy way to check if the VM diagnostic logs are stored in the specific storage accounts

    Hi Team,

    Could you please provide our customer an easy way to audit if the VM diagnostic logs are stored on the specific storage accounts?

    We will suggest to add the new alias Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions/settings.StorageAccount into the swagger spec, then we can use Azure Policy to audit the storage account name.

    Thanks so much.

  18. Support for Teams & SFB on Windows Virtual Desktop

    With the release of Windows Virtual desktops on Azure, the multisession W10 offering does not support either of the Collaboration Tools, SFB or Teams. The support of these office apps with pass through support for peripherals is vital to make this offering viable. Please can this be looked at and delivered when the service goes public on Azure
