  1. Info in Pricing FAQ is wrong.

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-machines/

    Go to FAQ - General
    "If my deployed instance says stopped, am I still getting billed?"

    In the Table, STATE="Stopped"; BILLED="No".
    But Details = "If the VM is stopped (...) the software is not billed. For allocated stopped VMs, the cores are still billed".

    So, BILLED should be "Yes"

  2. Give a warning before virtual machines reboot when in use?

    Sometimes when using a virtual machine, the connection will drop and from the Azure Portal we can see that the virtual machine is rebooting. It would be nice if there was a warning before a reboot.

  3. Password lengths are not well defined

    When I enter a password for a new Ubuntu LTS VM instance, the Azure web interface tells me the maximum password length is 123 characters. When I make a password that long, VM creation fails and says that passwords may only be between 6 and 72 characters. Please work on making the interface and error messages more consistent.

  4. Localization about descriptions of gallery images

    Descriptions of gallery images are provided ONLY in English. Some of them include very important information for Azure users. ( ex. NOTE in the description for CentOS 6.6 image)

    Please translate descriptions so that every user can read them more easily.

  6. Stop asking me to confirm every step of creating new virtual machine

    Imagine a website where you try to register and enter your details. Now imagine that website asking you if the entered name is correct. Now imagine that website asking you to confirm the name or you'll lose your changes. Now type in last name. Try typing in email. Now imagine that website asking you to confirm your last name or changes will be lost.

    I'm talking about new azure dashboard new virtual machine creation. Going through this setup and having to click OK or SAVE after every submenu really drained all energy I had.

    Please hire User Experience experts. (And…

  9. UI to change the VM type (An, Dn, etc) is not intuitive to find

    It took me quite a while to figure out how to change a VM's type from one type to another, e.g. from D12 to D3. I finally just started guessing that some things were clickable and happened to try clicking on the current type. Not intuitive at all.

  11. Planned Maintenance - Complete at Night for RDS services in Azure

    We are hosting production RDS services in Azure. We have them configured in an availability set to ensure the servers are not on the same host in the datacenter. The planned maintenance as described in the article below rebooted production terminal servers in the middle of the users work day causing lost work and angry customers. Recommend we alter the process to complete these types of reboots at night for the geographical region, or configure a warning to users to log out and put the RDS server in drain mode before rebooting to minimize loss when the user session state…

  13. Please fix mistranslation message of 'Create an image from VHD' panel.

    When we forget checking 'I have run waagent -deprovision on the virtual machine' checkbox and click OK button, we'll see 'Required' message. (p1-eng.png)

    However, in Japanese language, the message shows '必要なディスク容量' (p1-jp.png)
    It's mean 'storage size which we require'. ...I'm confused very much.

    Please fix this message, ex. '必須のオプションです'

  14. Azure Planned Maintenance Strategy

    I have concerns in regards to the use-cases of Azure and how the current Planned Maintenance strategy impacts this.

    There are many use-cases where Availability Sets are of no use and do not protect you from downtime. VDI Platforms for example require persistent sessions to Single VMs. No amount of redundant VMs in an Availability Set will alleviate the impact to End Users if their Desktop VM is rebooted during business hours.

    The Citrix Netscaler has recently been released on the Azure Marketplace which in theory should open up further use-cases for Azure. But why would I pay thousands to…

  20. Oracle Linux / CentOS boot disk size

    Please allow to increase Linux boot disk size from default 30GB to 100 GB on need basis. Current 30 GB is too less.
