  1. Allow Termination Events to be enabled on VMSS with Low-Priority/Spot

    Would like the ability to enable Termination events on Low-Priority/Spot VMSS.

    Low-Priority/Spot VMs currently have the ability to react to pre-emption events, but lack the ability to handle scale-in events like the regular priority, auto-scaling, Scale Sets do.

    I'm acknowledging that this appears to be an intentional decision (see examples below), but think that this would be useful.

    Terminate Notification:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machine-scale-sets/virtual-machine-scale-sets-terminate-notification#tips-and-best-practices

    As well as the api response when attempting to enable it via PoSH:

    "Virtual Machine Scale Sets with extension scheduledEventsProfile must have property priority set to Regular"

  3. Display guest OS version of Cloud Services in Azure Portal

    It would be nice if Guest OS version for Cloud Services would somehow be visible/accessible inside Azure Portal. Currently, the only way to see which Guest OS version is installed is through https://resources.azure.com. Guest OS version is needed to see which updates and patches have been installed and applied.

  5. 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?

  6. 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…

  7. VM ID (UUID) - Display on Azure Portal Virtual Machine Overview Panel

    Both AWS and Google display the unique ID of an instance on the main virtual machine display in their web portal.

    It seems overly burdensome to require API calls or meta data calls from the interior of the VM to see it.

    Could it please be put on the Azure portal.

  8. enforce auto shutdown of VMs

    I would love to be able to automatically enforce a shutdown of all VMs under a subscription, so if someone spins up a VM it would automatically amend the auto shutdown policy. Where only the subscription admin can override it.

  13. 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.

  14. Missing "WithPlan" method when creating VirtualMachineScaleSets

    Need to create a Scale Set, with the method VirtualMachineScaleSets​ in the library Microsoft.Azure.Management.Fluent. Used the image with Urn "microsoftiotedge:iotedgevmubuntu:ubuntu1604_edgeruntimeonly:1.0.1" from the market place.

    Methods Used:
    WithSpecificLinuxImageVersion, WithLatestLinuxImage and WithSpecificLinuxImageVersion

    All of these methods gave the error "Creating a virtual machine from Marketplace image requires Plan information in the request".

    Using a different method and image "WithPopularLinuxImage(KnownLinuxVirtualMachineImage.UbuntuServer1604Lts)" information about the plan is sent, however with other methods the plan information is not available.

    Using the same library to create a Virtual Machine, it implements an interface called "IWithPlan" and adds a method…

  16. 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).

  17. Add ephemeral OS disk support for Spot instance Virtual Machine Scale Sets (vmss)

    In the past you could create low priority vm scale sets with an ephemeral os disk. This feature was dropped when spot instances were introduced. Please add ephemeral os disk support for spot instance vm scale sets.

  18. View number of cores without hyperthreading

    Provide an AZ Powershell cmdlet to view the number of CPU cores, not logical cores on a given VM or vm SKU. This will make it easier to audit licensing requirements for software that is licensed per physical core, not hyperthreaded logical core.
