  1. Fix login to VM bug. ;-)

    login to VM does not work.
    Resetting password throws an error.
    Is this because there are only three days left on my account?
    If yes why not say so?
    Hep doesn't get me anywhere near the solution.
    :-(

  3. Change the default Azure temporary disk letter

    Each Azure virtual machine comes by default with a Free and temporary drive, that is mounted in 'D:'
    We all whish that Microsoft gives us the possibility to choose the letter of this temporary drive before deploying the VM.
    Why ? Becasue the D: drive is the most used letter for data disks. This is a huge issue when migrating workloads from on-prem to Azure, and this is a real limitation.
    I know there is a workaround to change the letter, but in case of unplanned fail over or host change, the temporary drive will be assigned the 'D:' drive,…

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  4. allow endpoint setup using the command line

    currently we have to create VM's, wait for them to start, then add endpoints. This means to create a new environment can take 20 mins (as VM's have to restart etc). If we could supply everything upfront it would save an age in start up time.

    the 2 big wins for me would be to supply internal load balances and endpoint creation when creating the VM's

  5. Azure portal home page's management tasks shortcuts

    Unlike the majority, i like the new Azure portal. And i wish it get better and better.
    When pining a resource to the home page (Like a VM, resource group, app), it will be great that we can get to the common management tasks directly by right clicking a resource.
    Example : It will be great that i can find the options : Connect via RDP, Restart... when right clicking a virtual machine tile.

  6. Tiles with controls to start/stop services from the portal home.

    Tiles with controls to start/stop services (VM, webapp, etc.) from the portal home, instead of needing to enter the service's page (which is REALLY SLOW).
    Also, include controls to directly change scalability.

  8. Server Status for end users

    Hi

    I would like a feature where we could display a simple website that shows all server status's in an Azure subscription for end users.

    This would allow them to browse the website to check if a server is on or off quickly without the need of the portal or asking a member of IT team.

  13. Cost still prohibitive for single user dev work

    I set up a basic SQL server VM and uploaded a 3 Gig evaluation ERM system for the purposes of testing and personal development/training but my credits ran out straight after the setup process. I think at the moment the pricing is such that a single developer license and a budget server in my back room is still the way to go.

  14. RDP through browser

    RDP through browser http
    Mostly RDP ports or blocked in enterprise networks. Launching rdp client is therefor not usefull. However doing RDP over http like teamviewer enables rdp in these situations.

  15. 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"

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
