I have had to destroy and recreate several machines that refused to start after a shutdown. I get a useless error that the machine "failed to start". I still have some vhd's that I am sure that I am being charged for, but I cant delete them because they are apparently attached to a computer that no longer exists!
There is also no good place to send problems like this. The problem with their PAID support plan is it assumes that it's always the users fault. I am expected to PAY to fix THEIR bugs!

I would like to migrate internal enterprise applications to Windows Azure but as part of requirement I need a dedicated VMs to host the applications to meet data and security requirements. Can I leverage G series as dedicated servers to host VMs for the internal application.1 vote
Consider this scenario:
1. I have an application that requries more than 150 endpoints so I am forced to use a PIP address
2. As I'm using a PIP address, the options around load balancing (in any mode) machines in an Availability set is removed and I can only have single VMs
3. Those single VMs are subject to the possibility of planned and unplanned interruption.
Either, increase the number of endpoints per VIP allowed (and allow port ranges) or develop a form of load balancing and availability set for PIPs. Permanent, reserved PIPs should also be available.
This is kinda two requests in one, but it would be really nice for the following settings to be made to this blade: Browse All->Virtual Machines->My VM->All Settings
- Alphabetically sort the "All Settings" blade
- Add in options to manage the Alerts, Monitoring, Pricing Tier blades that are only accessible via the primary Virtual Machine blade (I know this seems redundant, but for whatever reason, my brain really really really wants to find those options in the All Settings area.)
Thanks in advance!3 votes
There are VM's with Server2012 and visual studio community, but I don't want a server as it is used only by a single developer (we also have problems with visual svn which we do not get on our local windows 7 machines).
There are also a lot of VM on premium storage, West europe that are exclusive to MSDN, but we can't use them through our BizSpark subscription (although we did sign up for MSDN through our BizSpark subscription)1 vote
Some of our application checks the mac address for Authorization.
Give me a function to fix the mac address for testing.1 vote
The custom script extension appears to have a dependency on DNS in order to connect to a storage account endpoint to download the specified script. I found that if I configure a VM into a virtual network with a non-existent DNS server specified, the VM has no DNS resolution and therefore the custom scripts fail to download with "The remote name could not be resolved" errors for the storage endpoint. Granted, if one is careful to make DNS available, this could be avoided, but there are a variety of (mainly unintended) scenarios where DNS might not work in a new VM, and therefore break CSE. At the very least, some validation would help to warn or prevent deployment in detectable scenarios.

And even then . When I was just browsing through I created one VM with bare minimum settings and I deleted it in 10 minutes thinking I could create another one but now it says free trial is disabled.
This is not good.1 vote
When customizing the dashboard, if small (1x1) icons are used for virtual machines, then no status information is visible. Perhaps color (red vs green) or a red x when the vm is stopped can indicate the status of each machine at a quick glance. This would allow for much more efficient use of space on the custom dashboard without sacrificing information.1 vote
VM connect button in new portal downloads an .rdp w an address syntax error, so not functional. Saw it when I got VM to show up on dashboard, opening it, and Connect. Old portal VM connect works fine.3 votes
Please add a feature where I would be able to search for a virtual machine name. We manage quite a lot of servers and would benefit greatly from this,2 votes
When create a new CentOS VM,
if there is a default item to the endpoints.
I want you to display the default items.

More flexibility with Client OS - Virtual Machines.
Can we get a bit more flexibility with testing the client OS on Azure. Since Microsoft will charge are on a per use basis it would be great if they could extend the use of Windows 8/8.1 VM's to everybody. (So we don't have to go the large
expense of having a MSDN subscription).

Make it known that these VHD's come with spyware and are not "free" but are taking your info to the 3rd party companies that publish them- it would be nice if MS kept uptodate distros so you don't have to VMDK to VHD then upload them to your blob/cloud so you can use them- all these precompiled things have privacy issues that you would never agree to if read. pls. fix this.1 vote
I would like to be able to monitor and setup notifications for problems such as ram usage on virtual machines.2 votes
At present, you can create a full snapshot of a Hyper-V VM, but not an azure VM, The current suggested mechanism (setup out at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn722422.aspx) means you take the VM down, create a disk snapshot,. This can work but means downtime, What I'd like to see is a simple New-AzureVMSnapShot cmdlet, along with a Restore-AzureVMFromSnapshot. And of course, have the functiond available in the Portal too!1 vote
