  3. Support put metrics from multiple nodes from a VMSS into a single chart in metric explorer

    Currently, from metric explorer I can view some metrics from a single node from a VMSS. For example, I can view CPU percentage for node-0 in a chart. However, it will be more useful if I can put CPU percentage metrics for other nodes in the same chart so that I can view all CPU usage in a single chart. Then I can do a second chart for network for all nodes.

  4. Custom VM Sizing

    Allow for custom sizing of CPU and RAM (and possibly other schedulable resources like GPUs) in VM provisioning. This provides greater flexibility in workload scheduling than standard SKUs, and enables higher level tooling to take advantage of this for more sophisticated purposes.

  5. Make it easy to create virtual desktops for SMBs

    The number and complexity of the steps for a new MVD is mind blowing. Need to reduce and make it simple to create and access a virtual desktop with an existing ms account if you want to open up the market.

  6. Display VM Image information in the portal

    When creating Azure Compute Resources you need to specify the following Parameters in order to request a VM:

    Offer
    Publisher

    Sku

    Getting this information can be very hard because these information are only displayed in the "Export template" section after you created them.

    I think, that it would be way better if we could fetch these Information from the Marketplace Item page. (See attached picture)

  8. VM creation validation on tags, without actually creating any underlying resources

    I have created two policies contained within an initiative for a tagging requirement. One of these validated Resource Group creation, and the other VM creation.

    All of my other VM creation requirements (such as allowed images, allowed SKU's, allowed regions etc) result either in a Validation Failed or Validation Passed during creation validation, with the exception of TAG.

    When attempting to create a new Resource Group that does not have the required tags defined in the policy, I get a creation error. It's a bit ugly looking but it at least stops the creation of the Resource Group that does…

  9. Constrained CPU on DS15_v2 or beyond

    Can you offer D15 with constrained CPU?
    We are running SQL server on this VMs with CPU count licenses, and our workload need more RAM than CPU.

  11. Set default permission to temporary disk (/mnt/resource)

    In linux environment default permission of /mnt/resource is 755.
    It is nice to have a functionality to set any permission to that.

  12. F series compute, V3 SKU

    We love the F series compute VM's, they are almost perfect for our use case - the only thing that causes us grief is the lack of RAM in what might otherwise be considered a modern operational environment. When you come to do the Fsv3 series, please increase the RAM by at least 50% (moving an F4sv2 on 8GB to an F4s_v3 at 12GB for instance)

  13. When using ASP Classic and Office 365 email port 25 is the only port that works for sending emails.

    When using ASP Classic and Office 365 email port 25 is the only port that works for sending emails. By default Azure VMs blocks port 25 traffic. It is suggested that you either use port 587 or open a ticket to have the port 25 open. There is also other option witch is enabling the IIS SMTP server and configuring it having Office 365 as the Smart Host at port 587 ... but it is not suggested. So my suggestions is to include this information to avoid "port 25 tickets".

  15. Store the external RDP port used last for accessing a VM through the public IP address allowing port forwarding rules on the LB to work

    Currently we have a load balancer with external ports on the public IP forwarding to internal ports on the private IP for our virtual machines. From the Azure Home, we can see our Virtual Machines, but selecting the Connect option for RDP along with the external IP always defaults port 8000. We have to look up the correct external port in the load balancer rules and replace the port 8000 on this screen to connect to each system from the Azure web gui. It would be a nice change for the VM Connect screen to store the last external IP…

  16. AZCLI restore VM like portal

    As an engineer working on automated restore. I want to be able to restore via the Azure CLI or some equivalent so that the restore process can be done faster and with less chances for mistakes. Currently this does not appear to be an option in the CLI and not stated in the documentation either. Is it possible to have this added or to get an equivalent?

  17. Provide more real-time status for VM's such that VM in service Recovery is visible

    I've had a NUMBER of cases over the last year and a half where an Azure host will fail, it enters service recovery, but all the portal indications are all is fine for ~20 minutes. It would be nice if there was a way for me as a customer/SRE to know that the host is in recovery, and to just let it be.

  18. Implement a "Force Stop" for virtual machines (similar to AWS's stop twice)

    On AWS when you stop a VM and it doesn't stop, a 2nd stop will FORCE STOP the VM. MSFT/Azure would do well to do the same.

  19. Inconsistent case conversions

    There is a lot of case conversion inconsistency and it appears to be growing. For example:

    Resource group names are converted to uppercase when creating disk resources.

    When creating DNS and RSV resources, the resource names and resource groups names are converted and stored in lowercase.

    Consistency throughout should be maintained. We are wasting significant hours in development and testing implementing workarounds due to case inconsistency in the Azure back-end.

  20. VMs and multiple screens

    Enable a straighfoward way to configure screen resolution and screens used per VM.

    Example: Local machine has 4 screens, allow Azure to configure the following set-up:

    Screen 1 and screen 2 -> VM1

    Screen 3 and screen 4 -> VM2
