  3. Why do you take one dollar when you say 0.00 ?

    And even then . When I was just browsing through I created one VM with bare minimum settings and I deleted it in 10 minutes thinking I could create another one but now it says free trial is disabled.
    This is not good.

  5. Indicate status on small icons (1x1) for virtual machines

    When customizing the dashboard, if small (1x1) icons are used for virtual machines, then no status information is visible. Perhaps color (red vs green) or a red x when the vm is stopped can indicate the status of each machine at a quick glance. This would allow for much more efficient use of space on the custom dashboard without sacrificing information.

  6. Non-OSE VM's Pricing

    For non-operating system environment VM, price per hour should show clearly, but not a hyperlink to the pricing page. I created a MSSQL Enterprice on 2012 R2, it drink all my credit quickly in 45.60 Hours. I'm really very unhappy now.

  7. Display the default setting of the endpoints

    When create a new CentOS VM,
    if there is a default item to the endpoints.

    I want you to display the default items.
    ex) SSH

    Is displayed in the old portal.

    Because it does not displayed, I was fail trying to register the SSH.

  8. Display power status (on/off) on the server pinned to "Home" page

    Could you make a symbol on the servers pinned to the "Home" page that will display if the server is on or off? Now you need to go into each server to check if its on or not. I like the Portal btw

  10. fix VM setup to disclose privacy

    Make it known that these VHD's come with spyware and are not "free" but are taking your info to the 3rd party companies that publish them- it would be nice if MS kept uptodate distros so you don't have to VMDK to VHD then upload them to your blob/cloud so you can use them- all these precompiled things have privacy issues that you would never agree to if read. pls. fix this.

  11. Provide a simple way to backup - and restore VMs without requireing downtime

    At present, you can create a full snapshot of a Hyper-V VM, but not an azure VM, The current suggested mechanism (setup out at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn722422.aspx) means you take the VM down, create a disk snapshot,. This can work but means downtime, What I'd like to see is a simple New-AzureVMSnapShot cmdlet, along with a Restore-AzureVMFromSnapshot. And of course, have the functiond available in the Portal too!

  12. multiple VM create jobs

    When creating multiple VM's, it a waste of time waiting for the 1st vm to finish creating before starting to configure the next. Could you give us the option to save "VM create" jobs that can run sequentially. so for example I create 10 vm's all at once. In the background, the vm's get created sequentially?
    New site looks really cool. Thanks
    Adam

  14. Adding TCP/UDP Port Ranges in one go

    Please let there be a way to add port ranges.

    Its going to take me days to open up UDP ports 8000 to 8999 one port at a time.

  15. Options to set waagent.conf variables (Linux)

    The linux (Ubuntu) machines are not really persistent when shutting down and/or capturing, the waagent.conf is not read properly (even when capturing an image, a new image based on the capture does not include changed settings in waagent.conf).

    It would be nice to have the waagent.conf setting configurable at start up, when creating the virtual machine.

    planned  ·  Corey Sanders [MSFT] responded

    There are a few bugs we are working through to address these issues:

    1) Hostname changes are not persistent across reboots on Ubuntu. This is an issue we are working through on cloud-init which we should have fixed soon: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/walinuxagent/+bug/1375252

    2. Customers cannot use the waagent.conf file to change the location of the local disk mount point or set up swap space in a consistent way. We are working through how to fix this wit these two bugs:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/+bug/1374115

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/+bug/1374166

  16. Retrieve (expose through API) Performance & Diagnostic data for Azure Virtual Machines

    At least basic metrics like the ones exposed in Azure Portal should be exposed for Virtual Machines through the REST API.

    Also adding metrics should be available

  17. Custom Attributes for Virtual Machines

    Consider a set of custom attributes a Customer can maintain on a Virtual Machine object in Azure.
    Helpful for Automation, custom reporting, etc.
    Should be easy to implement, already known in VMM and would enable Migration Scenarios.

  18. Avoid default public ports

    Previously when creating a new VM the public port was set as Auto for the RDP and PowerShell ports -- now they are both(public and private) the same Default ports: 3389 and 5986 -- (mainly when using the preview portal in creating the VMs). Can we please have this reverted back to the random generated public port so that the VMs are more secure?

  19. Improvements on the Azure Internal Load Balancer

    The Azure Internal Load Balancer doesn't provide feedback as to the status of the endpoints - for example if a HTTP probe has been configured there is not way to determine if the probe is actually working.

    Additionally VMs behind the Azure ILB need to be able to talk to the IP address for the Azure ILB. Not having this has led to us having to add entries to a VM's hosts file - not ideal.
