  2. Effective route tables for VMSS

    As confirmed by PG in Support case 119091125000146 there is no way to query the effective route table for a VMSS instance, thus leaving 100% VMSS based infrastructures completely blind.

  4. Ability to read properties values in Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachineScaleSets/extensions/settings policy alias

    Would like to be able to create azure policy that can check the value of properties in VM & VMSS extensions. For instance if I have deployed the AzureDiskEncryptionForLinux extension i would like to further validate that the available settings for that extension are configured per company policy. so ability to add something like the following in a policy rule:

    "field": "Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachineScaleSets/extensions/settings"
    "containsKeyValue": "EncryptionOperation:EnableEncryption"

  5. Support for marketplace VMs that run custom OS

    Provide a solution to update/install the mobility service agent/extension on a VM from the Markeplate with closed OS to perform the replication job - By close OS I mean that no one would be able to SSH to the VM

  6. Increase Disk Size without Reboot

    The need to shutdown a VM before increasing the size of a disk is just silly. This is a basic function of on prem hypervisors. This needs to be brought to the cloud ASAP. It's 2019....

  7. Add Azure portal Resource Group filter 'Select All' option for Virtual Machine filtering

    Currently we can select specific (or all) subscriptions, locations, tags, etc and use them in filtering the Virtual Machines.

    We can select Resource Group filtering as well, however i have to unselect each resource group one by one if I want to filter my view to a specific resource group.

    Proposal: Add a 'Select All' option, that when Unchecked clears all the selections from the Resource Groups filter, allowing a single one to be selected.

  9. Using M208s_v2 is super hard.

    The necessary image for this vm instance is the GEN2 SUSE linux, and the documentation to install the azure cli fails for this instance and image combo.

    Also, finding the correct image for this vm instance was not clear at all.

    And trying to increase the volume disk size using the azure portal fails.

  10. VMSS scaleset /VM creation validation is successful the images that were not generalized.

    Customer's are feeling mislead when the validation shows successful although they are using images captured from ungeneralized VM's. if there is possibilty to validate if the OS is good or corrupted it would be great.

  11. virtualize intel vt-x/ept or amd-v/rvi to allow HAXM

    I would like Windows VM's to support nested virtual machines, so that I can use HAXM for Android VM for the purpose of using a Windows VM for mobile development.

  13. Request new feature : Converting existing unmanaged VMSS to managed VMSS.

    the scenario is
    1. we has an existing VMSS with unmanaged os disk already
    2. we want to convert to managed os disk in this VMSS.

    currently, it supports signle VM to migrate from unmanaged os disk to managed os disk, but it does not be supported for VMSS scenario.

    the current solution is we have to buildout a new VMSS with managed os disk and move our service from old VMSS to new VMSS, this has high risky(for exmaple, move the data from old VMSS to new VMSS, etc.),

  14. Return vm information when querying with only vmid

    If I only have the vmId, I'd like to be able to query ARM only with that to get the VM data instead of needing the RG and VM Name too.

  16. Fix the recently broken time entry field for automation schedules, VM auto-shutodown

    The Azure portal used to accept times in the format like 1200 or 1700, etc. After a recent change, the format is very rigid and must now be like "5:00:00 PM". Any deviation from that erase user input and reverts. Very annoying, and caused errors for us.

    Example locations for time entry are VM auto-shutdown and Automation schedules.

  17. creation of public private key pairs on the portal

    When deploying a new Linux based VM, create a shortcut to create a SSH keypair and download the private/public key straight from the portal... saves downloading puttygen or similar..

  18. B Series Burstable Unlimited Mode

    The B Series family should offer an "Unlimited" mode for bursting. So when a workload runs out of credits to burst, if the mode is set to unlimited, the vm will be billed at higher rate instead of just dropping down the allowed average. (Like the AWS featuer for T3)

  19. Creating a Low Priority VMSS using Portal has FD count bug

    When creating a VMSS with Low Priority, FaultDomain Count is set to 5 by default.

    "spreadingAlgorithmPlatformFaultDomainCount": {
    "value": "5"

    Obviously this is a bug, because Low Priority VMSS only supports Single Fault Domain
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machine-scale-sets/virtual-machine-scale-sets-use-low-priority

    If we go with the default value, we got FD count error.

    Deployment failed. Correlation ID:
    {
    'error': {
    'code': 'InvalidParameter',
    'message': 'The value of parameter platformFaultDomainCount is invalid.',
    'target': 'platformFaultDomainCount'
    }
    }

    I think this needs to be fixed in Portal Front-end side.

  20. Export "Virtual Machines" information to CSV

    Add the "export csv" function on the "Virtual machines" page to let user export the content in VM List.
    As some relationship information (e.g. Private IP Address, Custom Tags, VM Sizing) which not covered by "All Resources" page, but they are very useful & important for admin and planning purpose.
