  1. ADFS HA Template

    One of the scenarios for Office 365 SSO is to deploy all of the SSO components in Azure: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn509537.aspx

    "Scenario 2: All Office 365 SSO integration components deployed in Azure. This is the new, cloud-only approach; you deploy directory synchronization and AD FS in Azure. This eliminates the need to deploy on-premises servers."

    If technically possible, it would be great to have instructions to setup site to site VPN, documentation which already exists, and then provision highly available ADFS servers via template.

    I think medium sized customers with on-premise AD desiring SSO would find this attractive.

  2. VM Pricing Tier Labeling

    In the Pricing Tier box under Usage, why isn't the pricing tier identifier included? I can see that my VM has 4 cores and 28 GB of RAM, but when I click the box it just lists all configurations. I have to search through looking for the one with 4 cores and 28GB RAM. I see that it is configuration D12. Why isn't D12 part of the pricing tier configuration info listed in the little box? At the very least, why doesn't D12 have the little checkmark set indicating that it is the current configuration?

  3. Have a 16 core vm with 16gb of ram for cpu intensive workloads

    The current 16 core vm ' s come with huge amounts of ram and are very pricey. I would like a 16 core vm with 16gb of ram for less memory intensive but high cpu loads

  4. Ability to manage virtual machine images and disks

    I cannot find my virtual machine images and detached disks. I'm forced to switch into the old portal to delete old VHDs

  5. Don't publish RDP / PowerShell when selecting a corp connected network

    My financial customer was alarmed to see that a server was exposed to the internet when it was also connected to their corporate network.

    I helped them "connect" their on premises network to Azure. Once connected, one of the IT Admins just ran through the wizard (UI) to create a VM and place it on the network. A week later, security was reviewing the settings and asked why a sensitive server on a sensitive network was exposed (RDP with a random port) to the internet (which there is no good answer).

    My request: Can we change the deploy VM behavior…

  6. Choosing visual studio VM

    It's extremely difficult to chose a VM to create, as the column is extremely thin, so the details are hidden (such as OS type)

  7. Microsoft Endpoint Protection for Azure (Antivirus) Management Service as a Service

    It's great that we now can deploy the "System Center Endpoint Protection" client directly during provisioning using the new VM extensions, but we are still missing a management tool for managing policies and monitoring. Microsoft should provide the Microsoft Endpoint Protection antivirus product as a service or independent product that doesn't rely on System Center licensing model.

    Many customers doesn't want to maintain complex infrastructures like System Center Configuration Manager or System Center Operations Manager. The requirement of System Center Advisor to have the integration with OpsMgr to get the benefits of the Security Intelligence Packs is great for System…

  9. rename objects (affinity group, service bus, etc)

    I hate how some types of objects can't be renamed.

    Please let me rename things like Affinity Groups.

  12. both onpremises and Azure VMs should be able to join domain from WAAD. User login acconts should connect with WAAD like liveID Accounts.

    Currently WAAD is just a passive copy of on premises AD. Which gets information through DirSync. But neither can Azure VMs connect to that and join its VMs to that AD and also users with windows 8 cannot connect their login accounts to WAAD accounts like they can with liveID accounts. I suggest even end users laptops should as well connect to WAAD account so that machines can get the policy from WAAD. WAAD should increase the reachout of onpremises AD, instead of just being a passive copy

  14. Failover Cluster support besides SQL AlwaysOn

    It would be great for failover clustering to be supported with Azure VMs as it would allow my customers to migrate all their thinkable on-premises workloads to Azure. Move to an Azure-only environment is being asked more frequently.
    Shared VHDX and a way to get a valid cluster IP address seems to be key for this to get operational.
    It would be a perfect in combination with availability sets for e.g. file server clusters, SQL failover clusters, custom application clusters

  17. Found a bug creating VM's in Azure

    When creating new Virtual Machines from Gallery (Standard Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter)
    On Page 3 there is a problem attaching the new VM's to a Virtual Network.

    But if I change the Cloud service (DDL) to an existing Cloud service, the Network information is displayed. After that I can change it back to auto generate a new Cloud Service. But keep my Virtual Network configuration.

    It would be nice if the Virtual Network where visible from the beginning when creating many virtual machines in a network.

    See screendumps that is attached.

    Best regards,
    Tobias Jonsson

  18. Preconfigured SharePoint demo template

    SharePoint 2013 preconfigured Demo environment-template for demo like the Information worker VHD for SP 2010.
    Main features:
    * Content with metadata etc.
    * Users

    Pherhaps templateify the one you could create at https://www.microsoftofficedemos.com/
    for creation in azure.

  19. add the ability to create a VM and install an OS (Linux/Windows) from an .ISO

    It would be great to be able to stand up a VM w/ my hardware requirements and mount an .iso of the OS that I want to install. This is how Hyper V and vCenter works. We would upload the OS .ISO to a datastore, give the new VM access to the indicated datastore, and use the .ISO that is on the datastore as a bootable OS.

    This way we could install custom linux OS's or other versions of windows (e.g. server 2008 R2 Standard x64)

  20. BUG: Creating a Linux VM with SSH certificate from portal fails

    I'm trying to create a Linux virtual machine (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 7/25/2014 release) in a virtual network. Whenever I specify an SSH certificate instead of a password, I keep getting an error that the machine creation failed. The certificate upload succeeds, however.
    This has happened in the past as well, but I didn't worry about it then since I was focused on a PaaS deployment. Please fix this! If it's a matter of some required settings combination not being met, please highlight that in the UI.
