  1. metadata hybrid license

    metadata should include the hybrid license status.
    this way automation scripts running on the vm can get their license model (azure or hybrid) and set the kms license server accordingly.

  3. Make B-Series available in every region

    I just got a free account, but don't see a way to create a small burstable VM. B-Series does not seem to be available in my region, and I cannot see where it is available at all.
    I should not be forced to choose a 70$/month option for a simple exercise.

  5. Messages are meaningless - provide better information

    When trying to run command in aVM form the portal the following message is presented:

    The list of commands is not available due to missing permissions or location-specific limitations.

    No link to more information, no knowledge base article, Google cannot find a reference, etc. The message states the problem, it is meaningless without a solution.

  6. Misleading 404's from boot diagnostics

    Boot diagnostics and serial console operations are returning many 404 errors when enabled for VM.

    Basically, the presence of 404 errors are counted against “client errors” in the insight for storage monitoring blade (storage side analytics)

    It would be really helpful if they are addressed at Boot diagnostics API level in such a way that it verifies blob existence with out throwing 404.

  7. Please display a pop-up that alerts you that a reboot will be performed when you "resize" the VM.

    Currently, when a VM is "resized", it is automatically restarted even when the VM is booting.
    If the VM is running, there may be situations where you do not want to restart it, such as when the user is using the VM.
    Therefore, if you perform "resize" of the VM while the VM is running, please issue a pop-up that alerts you with the following message when performing the "resize".
    Also, in that case, I would like to be able to cancel the "size change" once.

    Message: "The VM is currently booting. Resizing will restart the VM. Are you sure?"

  9. Build CIS Windows Server on Azure with Packer

    Create a Packer script that uses the CIS Windows Server 2019 from the Azure Marketplace as a base image. Packer will provision the VM but fail to connect to it and configure it.
    For other provider there is a setting called customdatafile that allows you to send a script to be run on the VM in provisioning time. With this setting you can enable WinRM Basic Authentication to allow Packer to connect and do its provisioning. There is no equivalent to this for Windows VMs in Azure.

  11. Daylight Savings not considered in VM

    I live in UK.
    I created a VM, deployed in West US (of course because Azure UK/Europe is facing overloading), so when I logged into VM the time is showing 1 hour behind. I believe the Daylight saving after March 29th is not considered.

  12. Support for live migration for Lsv2 VMs

    As per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/lsv2-series?toc=/azure/virtual-machines/linux/toc.json&bc=/azure/virtual-machines/linux/breadcrumb/toc.json, for Lsv2 VMs, premium storage caching, live migration and memory preserving updates are not supported. Is supporting them in the roadmap? If so, are there any timelines that could be shared?

  13. 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"

  15. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
