  1. Unable to mount lvm os disk snapshot on other vm for troubleshooting issue.

    Yesteday , our one of the vm was not booting and going to emergency mode due to issue of invalid entry in fstab and unfortunalty we don't have root password . so thought to take sanpshot of root disk and create new disk with sanpshot and mount to other vm and change entry in fstab . but as os disk root partition was part of lvm so I was unable to mount it on other vm ...it was displaying error message "mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'" lvm something .

    [root@azre3lpdukd01 ~]# mount /dev/sdj4 /mnt/troubleshootingdisk

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  16. Keyvault Extension - Enable a post update script to restart services etc

    We Use the Keyvault extension and it works great to auto update SSL

    however on some systems (notably linux) most/all web servers don't automatically use the new cert even if it overwrites the old files - they need a service restart or similar action to take place

    It would make the Keyvault extension even more awesome if one could define a config to have the extension trigger a command line task or script if and when it detects that it has pulled a new version of the certificate

  19. Is it possible to trigger a function app or a script when VMSS is scaling out?

    I have seen a case, wherein Cx is looking for an option to trigger a function app or a script when VMSS is scaling out to 'N' instances. Any feedback is highly appreciated

  20. Add VM images for Windows ARM64

    Currently, there aren't any ARM64 Windows VMs available. This e.g. blocks Continuous Integration scenarios for apps that want to support Windows on ARM (for e.g. the Microsoft Surface Pro X), like NodeJS: https://github.com/nodejs/build/pull/2408#issuecomment-671707155

    While cross-compilation from a x64 host is possible, it's not possible to run automated tests on the ARM64 platform until VM images become available for that architecture.

    Please add VM images for Windows ARM64 to Azure.
