  2. Give us a simple way to detect if our code is running in Azure

    Quoted from this 5-year-old request https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/15187134-give-us-a-simple-way-to-detect-if-our-code-is-runn

    What I'd like to see is a single really simple way to detect whether my code is running inside or outside Azure.

    I'd like this to work regardless of whether the code is running as a worker role, web site, web service or on an Azure VM, etc.

    I'm actually a maintainer of a Microsoft-owned SDK, and I'd like to have this feature to facilitate such a detection in our SDK.

    Brainstorming: can VM populate some a specific ENV VAR such as AZUREREGION=xyz, which can then be used as a flag to indicate

  4. Can't create VM with specified size from Azure powershell

    There is a bug that can't let you create a vm with a specified size in the Azure Powershell (from portal.azure.com)
    If i type the same command line in my local powershell it creates the machine with a specified size without issues but the same command does not work in azure

  5. VMSS extension MicrosoftMonitoringAgent - is there a way to specify what needs to be logged?

    I enabled logging metrics using the VMSS extension "MicrosoftMonitoringAgent", by enabling the metrics through the azure portal as a test. Now I get a very big list of logs which in my case are not necessary. Is there a way to specify what logs I do want? Since the logging will cost some money, I want to drill it down to only the logs I want it to log.

  6. How do you enabled shared disk for an existing managed disk?

    I read your article on how to enabled shared disk, but it only talks about creating a new disk with maxshares configured. How do you convert an existing disk to a shared disk? If it's not supported, can you put that in the article?

  7. Resize VM Confirmation Dialogue Box Missing

    Currently, clicking the resize button directly starts the resize operation. It should rather show a dialog box or pop-up notification to confirm the resize operation.

  9. Make Code for InstanceViewStatus an enum in the API

    I am using the vmss API, and working with the PowerState codes. In order to deal with this I have created my own consts that map to all of the PowerState codes here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.azure.management.compute.fluent.powerstate?view=azure-dotnet

    However, it would be nice if I could use a list of values from the API instead of defining my own.

    Code location for current API:
    azure-rest-api-specs/specification/compute/resource-manager/Microsoft.Compute/stable/2020-12-01/compute.json

    Purely relying on documetion can be conflicting. For instance the documentation here does not contain the PowerState/unknown status:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.azure.management.compute.fluent.powerstate?view=azure-dotnet

    If this was implemented on its own this would require every other status within the statuses field to have its…

  10. Make PowerStatus its own member variable in VirtualMachineScaleSetVMInstanceView for the API

    For the API, it would be nice to actually have the PowerState as a member variable inside of the following:
    azure-rest-api-specs/specification/compute/resource-manager/Microsoft.Compute/stable/2020-12-01/compute.json

    It simply seems useful to have the PowerStatus at its own field not in the statuses if you always have one, so you don't have to go digging through the values in statuses each time in order to find the PowerStatus, and preform string matching to make sure you are grabbing the PowerStatus and not one of the other statuses.

  11. 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?

  12. Suggestion for VM script shell portal UI page

    For the Script commands passed on the virtual machine "Run Command" page, it would be very useful to have an option so that enables script commands that run to be automatically cataloged and listed on as commands (a command history). Users frequent certain commands, could 'pin' them, modify them, etc more plainly. Basically this improvement would be even more useful as Up Arrow key in bASh. Thanks!

  13. Automated Hot Add and Hot Removal of CPUs and Memory

    Allow for the setting of thresholds for CPU and Memory utilization that would trigger the Hot Addtion (or Hot Removal) or vCPUs and vRAM from a virtual machine, for those Guest operating systems that support those functions.
    As other users below have stated, the whole point of virtualization is to pay for the consumption you need when you need it. Hyper-V and VMWare both support hot add CPU's/memory so why can't we do this in Azure? Requiring a reboot just at the time that you need to scale up is not practical. I can't scale out my current design due…

  14. GPU enabled instance support in Japan West

    It's available in Japan East but we cannot easily migrate our service running on Azure Databricks.

  15. 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.

  16. Connect request should default to one's IP address

    When you click on Connect to a VM with JIT access enabled, the default IP range is All Configured Addresses. That should change to 'My IP Address' as it reduces security vulnerabilities.

  19. VMSS automatic OS upgrades should support Gen2 images

    There is nothing special abut the generation 2 images for Windows server. Features like automatic OS upgrades in virtual machine scale sets should support all operating systems, including Gen2 and Core images.

  20. Use "az vm repair" extension to create repair VM with private IP only

    A few months ago, I recommended az vm repair to help create a rescue vm. When running az vm repair create from the subscription, the operation fails because they had a policy to block Public IP addresses.

    I propose an optional switch that gives the option to not give the repair VM a Public IP and to specify the pre-existing VNET you'd like to create the Repair VM on.

    This way, the operation will complete on such a subscription and the VM will have a Private IP. Then depending on the user's setup (VPN, using another VM as a jump…
