    Nowadays replication of VMs with SecureBoot is not supported:

  2. Allow raising DSv4 quota via the portal

    Since at least the 11th, I have been unable to raise DSv4 quotas the normal way in the portal, because they're missing from the list. Each time I have to try my luck via various support channels to get a staff member to raise my core quota. It takes a long time, and burns a lot of time at Microsoft and with me. I have an open production incident right now, in fact, open for a number of hours, because I am unable to raise the DSv4 quota in the semi-automated manner.

    Cross referencing case numbers:

    120102221002436
    120102221002010

  3. Roadmap for "Azure AD login VM extension" to go GA

    Looking to integrate VM login to AAD using the extension in preview described at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/login-using-aad.

    Technically all working swimmingly well, but the log-in includes a warning message that the feature isn't for use in production.

    What's the guidance when this is expected to go GA?

    Raising here as suggested in handling of support ticket #120101924005145.

  4. Make the port ip-adresses a list instead of a single input field

    Hi,
    I would like a port ip-adresses to be displayed as a list where you can give each ip-adress a name. This would help me administrate the list of ip-adresses.

  8. Terminating or Deleting a VM once should be enough.

    Nobody can accidentally delete their VMs when they have to confirm the name before Deleting. Please make it once someone deletes a VM everything attached to it is Deleted especially the disk, resource group etc. I just got charged for disk storage after Deleting the VM

  9. Ability to Resize VM from Dv3 to Dv4

    Are there any plans to make this resizing available in the future for below scenario, or it won’t be supported at all?

    As per doc it is not possible but are ther any plans to allow this option .would like to understand why is it not possible becasue of page file and current architecture setup for SKU with remote disk

    Dv3 VM (with local temp disk) -> Dv4 VM (with no local temp disk)

    we are currently looking to resize around 100 VMs to the new v4 series without temp disks. and purchase RI for Dv4 sku.

  11. Remove "network discovery" fly-out on new VM

    When building a new VM using a marketplace image, upon logging in for the first time, you see a "scan network" fly-out. Clicking Yes or No causes the machine to crash, as it's seen as a "change to the OS networking."

    Please remove this fly-out from the marketplace image, it's completely useless and has the potential to brick a brand new machine, thanks!

  12. Allow the ability to add an addtional key to a VM

    Currently we can reset a key which will replace the existing keys. A safer way would be to simply add an additional key and remove the original key once the access problem is solved.

  14. AAD DS fully qualified domain name 15 characters limit is too short

    I am trying to set up an application in azure and using AAD as authentication. the domain name we have is 16 characters before .com. we had to create a non-routable domain name in AAD DS because of the limit and now every one have to type longdomainname\username instead of their fully-routable email address. Not everyone can get a domain under 15 character so please increase the limit from 15 characters to at least 30. having a short limit kill the very purpose of having a single sign-on.

    thank you

  15. Se necesita que la AVM se pueda abrir para corregir errores de conexión. En una máquina fisica, esta se enciende y se corrige.

    Se necesita que la VM se pueda abrir para corregir errores de conexión. En una máquina fisica, esta se enciende y se corrigen los errores, pero si no podemos abrir y corregir es un verdadero problema. Actualmente, si la VM pierde conexíón es como si se desapareciera una máquina física o se hiciera invisible.

  16. Enable to extend 35 days maintenance window in case of failure

    Today, we can leverage "Planned Maintenance" to avoid any impact on VMs. But, the maintenance may fail if it cannot find appropriate resource to re-deploy a VM. It would be great if the 35 days maintenance window can be reset in that circumstance. In some mission-critical system, it's hard to secure sufficient time frequently for maintenance (let's say once a month). Thus, extending the window is needed in case of failure.

  17. Will users be able to run adhoc commands on Azure dedicated hosts

    Will we get the ability to run any command on the dedicated hosts or the hosts are just dedicated for our VMs, but we don't have control?
    We want to run a script on the host so that the nested virtualization is enabled on the VMs created on that host.

    Thanks

  18. The New-AzVM cmdlet no longer works

    The page is: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/quick-create-powershell

    This command, copied directly from the toturial and run in the Azure Cloud Shell: New-AzVm `

    -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup" `
    
    -Name "myVM" `
    -Location "East US" `
    -VirtualNetworkName "myVnet" `
    -SubnetName "mySubnet" `
    -SecurityGroupName "myNetworkSecurityGroup" `
    -PublicIpAddressName "myPublicIpAddress" `
    -OpenPorts 80,3389

    Generates the following error:

    New-AzVM: The property 'securityProfile.encryptionAtHost' is not valid because the 'Microsoft.Compute/EncryptionAtHost' feature is not enabled for this subscription

    Please help!

    I've run this same command before, and never got this error. It is happening on all of my subscriptions.
