  1. Notification for the capacity for requested VM size

    It is quite critical that we could receive the notification for running out of the requested VM size.
    In our customer, the allocation failure was happened in the following critical scenarios:
    • Restoring VM in Azure Backup
    • Failover in ASR
    • Starting VM
    Getting that notification earlier, they can avoid the error by considering another size.

  2. Migrate VM from Vnet

    It would be a great idea having a solution that would allow to migrate the VM from one Vnet to another with just a simple drop down button and selecting the desired Vnet

  3. B Series Burstable Unlimited Mode

    The B Series family should offer an "Unlimited" mode for bursting. So when a workload runs out of credits to burst, if the mode is set to unlimited, the vm will be billed at higher rate instead of just dropping down the allowed average. (Like the AWS featuer for T3)

  4. Show VM shutdown timestamp on portal

    Customer always need to query vm shotdown timestamp. It would be convenient for users to view the time on portal directly.

  5. Provide more real-time status for VM's such that VM in service Recovery is visible

    I've had a NUMBER of cases over the last year and a half where an Azure host will fail, it enters service recovery, but all the portal indications are all is fine for ~20 minutes. It would be nice if there was a way for me as a customer/SRE to know that the host is in recovery, and to just let it be.

  6. Implement a "Force Stop" for virtual machines (similar to AWS's stop twice)

    On AWS when you stop a VM and it doesn't stop, a 2nd stop will FORCE STOP the VM. MSFT/Azure would do well to do the same.

  7. Inconsistent case conversions

    There is a lot of case conversion inconsistency and it appears to be growing. For example:

    Resource group names are converted to uppercase when creating disk resources.

    When creating DNS and RSV resources, the resource names and resource groups names are converted and stored in lowercase.

    Consistency throughout should be maintained. We are wasting significant hours in development and testing implementing workarounds due to case inconsistency in the Azure back-end.

  8. VMSS: 'AND'/'OR' option for scale in and scale out conditions in GUI

    When two or more rules are added to the scale conditions, scale in has 'AND' operation and scale out has 'OR' operation. Looking for an option in GUI to select between 'AND' or 'OR' operation for both scale in and scale out rules.

  9. Display creation time of a Virtual Machine

    We need to collect the VM creation time for auditing, however, the activity logs are reserved for 90 days, we cannot check the precise timestamp of creation. can we have this information display on the Portal somewhere? like Overview or Properties etc. Thanks.

  10. VMs and multiple screens

    Enable a straighfoward way to configure screen resolution and screens used per VM.

    Example: Local machine has 4 screens, allow Azure to configure the following set-up:

    Screen 1 and screen 2 -> VM1

    Screen 3 and screen 4 -> VM2

  11. Allow DevTest labs 'Set virtual machines per user' to be overridden

    I'd like to be able to override the number of virtual machines I, as a lab owner, can create while keeping the policy enforced for lab users.

  12. Collect modifications to Azure reservations (options/scope updates) in activity logs and display them in portal, as well as API capability

    Collect modifications to Azure reservations (options updates, scope change, cancelling/refund, ...) in activity logs and display them in portal, as well as API capability to retrieve such changes. This can help audit reservations, and establish better governance.

  13. Deploy VM with Static IP at build stage

    When deploying a VM it would be nice to be able to set the IP address to static rather than having to change it static after the VM is deployed

  14. ED25519 & ECDSA key format support

    Hi,

    It would be nice to be able to use key in ED25519 and ECDSA format on Azure when we want to connect to our GNU Linux on EC2.

    Thanks,

    David

  15. Export report certification on where VM is located

    We would like to receive, for a given VM a pdf or similir that declare that the VM running on location X as expected. For example, I create a VM that run into North-Europe, I would a certification that this VM run into this location.

  16. restore vm azure cli

    restore vm should be an option in the Azure CLI. It can be done through the portal to a point in time and there is a similar feature for dbs that makes automation easier. Any thoughts?

  17. The Virtual Machine Contributor role should be able to take and manage snapshots

    The virtual machine contributor role should be able to manage all aspects of virtual machines.

    Currently the role does not have the ability to take snapshots of disks attached to VMs which is a standard administration task for managing VMs.

    It shouldn't be necessary to need to create a custom role for this.

  19. new scenario

    We are observing the NVA's cpu utilization was low, but the network flows (total of inbound and outbound) has gone up above 250K and the users experiences delayed performance as Microsoft Azure has a limitation of 250K network flows per VM. 250K may be a good baseline for normal workloads but definitely not for NVA.

  20. Allow update of gallery image for VMSS

    When referencing a custom image in a VMSS from a Shared Image Gallery (Preview), it cannot be updated to refer to a new image. This results in an error code "PropertyChangeNotAllowed".

    Today, a VMSS can be updated to a new image reference when it references a managed image that does not reside in a Shared Image Gallery.
