  1. Add Azure VM Lastboot time property in portal

    During the manual patch process, we need to use Invoke-AzVMRunCommand to get the last boot-up time. There can be an environment with no Log Analytics or update management solution. Adding the system last boot time helps in avoiding run commands API.

  2. NVv4 VM incompatible with Recommended GPO

    The following knowledgebase article provides some recommended group policy settings when configuring an Azure VM with a graphics card in it:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/configure-vm-gpu
    Following the recommended GPO settings on an NVv4 VM yields an incompatible result, whereby accessing the RemoteApps through the standalone installation of the Remote Desktop agent prevents the graphics card from being properly utilised. Resulting in black boxes and lagging cursor.
    This has been raised with Microsoft under a ticket and the final resolution of the ticket was to Disable "Use Hardware Graphics Adapters for all Remote Desktop Services Sessions" and Disable "Configure H.264/AVC hardware encoding for Remote…

  3. Keyvault VM extension for Windows - Allow installing all non-expired versions of a certificate to enable cert rolling

    We use AAD token encryption for authenticating to our application, requiring that our application has the private portion of the certificate to decrypt the token and that AAD has the public portion. We are currently using the Keyvault VM extension for Windows to install the private certificate on our VMs.

    This works fine until we need to rotate certificates. When we're in the middle of a rotation there's a period of time where the extension only installs the new version of the certificate on new VM instances, since the new version has been generated, but AAD has not yet been…

  5. Add Edge Browser to Windows Server Marketplace Images

    With the lack of support for Internet Explorer in the majority of web products these days which are commonly hosted on Windows Server it makes sense to Install the Edge browser to allow use of this rather than IE.

    There are two options as I see it.

    The first being that an option is included during the provisioning of a VM in Azure that is a Yes or No (default) to having Edge install on the server as part of the provisioning.

    The other being that Edge is added as part of the base image for all Microsoft owned Windows…

  6. CloudServices on B-Series Burstable VM

    Hello,

    Apologies if this has already been covered (it doesn't seem to be).

    In migrating a number of A-Series Classic Cloud Services to B-Series Burstable VMs, it appears that setting vmsize="Standard_B1s" for example is not allowed. The enumerated list in the properties pane for both WorkerRoles and WCF WebRoles also don't show any B-Series VMs.

    Have I missed something or are Cloud Services not supported on B-Series VMs, and if so, why?

  7. Add-AzVMSecret missing option to make the private key exportable from Windows Certificate Store

    Please add an option to import the certificate in Windows Certificate Store with the ability to export the private key.

    Use case is for Azure to take care of adding the certificate to Windows Certificate Store, but to also be able to export the certificate locally because the certificate is needed with private key converted to other formats as well (e.g. PEM).

    Bonus points: Make this available as an option in Azure Key Vault virtual machine extension (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/extensions/key-vault-windows) if that extension is using Add-AzVMSecret under the hood.

  8. Invoke-AzVMRunCommand

    I want to call this to sysprep from devops pipelines. But it runs only under SYSTEM which is not allowed for sysprep.
    Through this I can stay on public cloud agents for all my automation tasks

  11. Ensure that out-of-the-box VMs comply with the Security Center recommendations

    I have been running a Windows Server 2019 Datacenter VM for about a year, and it has recently gone live. Having got the applications running, I have looked more closely at the Security Center reports and discovered lots of remediation needed. Why is that necessary? Surely the image could have all those issues corrected before it is deployed?

  12. More supported setting names for Add-AzVMAdditionalUnattendContent

    Currently the Add-AzVMAdditionalUnattendContent command only supports injecting "AutoLogon" and "FirstLogonCommands" settings for the "Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" unattend component.

    This needs expanding to support the "Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" unattend component which would allow setting of the region/locale and language.

  15. safemode

    Put this with "Run Command" to 'Remove Safemode' boot because I have seen many people have to spend hours trying to remove that.

  18. Unable to automate loading a windows server 2019 profile

    I thought by using an automation account to run the powershell execute via commands in VM would be my solution.
    I tested the RunPowerShellScript with:
    Start-Process "C:\windows\system32\notepad.exe"
    but it states that it can not find the path.
    What is missing here?
