  1. Remove azure availability set from data center clusters and make them logical.

    Having availability sets tied to clusters in the azure data center can cause an allocation error when the VM is taken offline to resize. This error forces we the customer to stop all VMs in the set and restart. sort of defeats the purpose from our side.
    Can a data center use logical groups of hosts for availability sets that are not patched simultaneously and also use separate power\rack and allow the customer to utilize its own cluster to manage failover. This will allow us to take a client cluster node VMs offline to resize. if the VM needs to…

  2. Provide REST API for VMSS to use health probe from Application Gateway during creation

    Allow customers to use Application Gateway health probe for VMSS features that utilize application health monitoring (features like rolling upgrade and automatic instance repairs).

  3. Shared Image Gallery : Allow to create multiple images from the same combination

    Current implementation of Shared Image Gallery images does not allow creation of a new image definition in case existing image definition using the same combination (of publisher, offer and SKU) already exists.

    In our use-case we create multiple self-hosted images using common base image from Azure Marketplace. Those images have different OS configurations (tools installed in VM) and infra configurations (different disk setups). Since all of those images share the same combination of publisher, offer and SKU, it is not possible to store those images in the same shared image gallery. We have to create separate image gallery for each…

  4. Azure Disk Encryption fails with error 2147943717

    Using AzureDiskEncryption 2.2.0.36 on a Windows Server 2019 VM (StandardD4asv4), BitLocker encryption fails (seemingly randomly) with "Win32EncryptableVolumeWrap::Encrypt failed with 2147943717".

    No group policies related to BitLocker encryption method are set. Encryption seems to fail around 1/4 - 1/3 of the time when standing up new VMs.

  5. performance tier pricing

    When creating a Premium SSD for a VM, there is an option to upgrade the performance tier. However, I don't see the pricing anywhere. The prices for each disk size are listed here:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/managed-disks/
    But this page does not include "performance tier upgrades" so I have no way of knowing how much more I would pay if I upgraded, say, a 32GB SSD to P50.

    Furthermore, it would be great to have at least base/example prices immediately available when choosing a disk size - just like VM prices are listed when choosing a VM size.

  7. IOPs limit on Azure Linux VM for 55 TB Oracle Database

    We have one customer who have Oracle Database on RAC and size is around 55 TB, is it possible to migrate Oracle databse with 55 GB on Azure VM?

    What is max IOPs, CPUs and Memory supported? Do you see any limitation?

    Please reach out to me if you need any more details.

  8. Why is clock speed never a choice when selecting VM ?

    Clock Speed is critical for specialized COTS applications that need migrated to Azure. However, there does not seem to be any option to select clock speed when selecting a VM.

  10. Fonts and Colors

    Within the VM Run Command, there should be some way to modify the font and the colors of the output. For those with impaired vision or color blindness this would be of assistance.

  12. Capacity Reservation for Disaster Recovery Scenarios

    Bigger companies have a DR strategy with given Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) for defined workloads. RTO and RPO are very important as they can decide if a company will survive a disaster or not. That is why a “kind of guarantee" is needed that RTO and RPO can be achieved during a real disaster and not only during tests.
    All Azure provided DR services like Azure Site Recovery (ASR) and Azure Backup have one very big weakness: There is no capacity guarantee!
    Let's assume that one Azure region or also one Azure Availability Zone (AZ)…

  13. Support of hyphens for Shared Image Gallery names

    We usually use hyphens as separators. Unfortunately, this is not supported in the Shared Image Gallery. It would be helpful if this could be supported. Image definitions support this.

  16. SPOT SIZE AND GPU BUGS

    Azure needs to stick to flaws, one on the windows system and one on the portal - both serious.

    1: The modification of azure spot shares, even if made, is not recognized when the VM Spot changes its size or even when it is created. For some reason, even though the regional Spot limit has been increased to, for example, 72, it is stuck in the standard limit of 10 in the standard. The message is "10 left out of 72 cpu".

    2) This is a serious and costly mistake. Most Nvidia cards are not fully recognized by Windows. Only…

  18. Convert Spot VM to StandardVM

    Will there be any chance in the future where the user will be able to convert a spot VM to a standard VM directly from portal instead of rebuilding the VM.

  19. Connection draining for VMSS before an upgrade

    VMSS should allow us to configure a custom script that can be run before performing an upgrade to ensure that all connections are drained before upgrading the image.

    Currently, the only way to do this is to use manual upgrades and RDP/remote powershell to each VM and take down the health probe, drain all the connections and then trigger the manual upgrade.

    This is not scalable with a large number of VMs and seems like a feature that could very easily be implemented on the VMSS.

    It would simply require custom script extensions that can be triggered manually by a…
