  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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".

  7. 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…

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. Deploy VM with Static IP at build stage

    When deploying a VM it would be nice to be able to set the IP address to static rather than having to change it static after the VM is deployed

  14. Export report certification on where VM is located

    We would like to receive, for a given VM a pdf or similir that declare that the VM running on location X as expected. For example, I create a VM that run into North-Europe, I would a certification that this VM run into this location.

  15. restore vm azure cli

    restore vm should be an option in the Azure CLI. It can be done through the portal to a point in time and there is a similar feature for dbs that makes automation easier. Any thoughts?

  16. The Virtual Machine Contributor role should be able to take and manage snapshots

    The virtual machine contributor role should be able to manage all aspects of virtual machines.

    Currently the role does not have the ability to take snapshots of disks attached to VMs which is a standard administration task for managing VMs.

    It shouldn't be necessary to need to create a custom role for this.

  17. new scenario

    We are observing the NVA's cpu utilization was low, but the network flows (total of inbound and outbound) has gone up above 250K and the users experiences delayed performance as Microsoft Azure has a limitation of 250K network flows per VM. 250K may be a good baseline for normal workloads but definitely not for NVA.

  18. Jenkins Azure Plugin Modification: Deinitialization Script

    In certain instance auto-provisioned Azure based Jenkins nodes may have done some specific setup or modifications for an external portion of another system. If a deinitialization script could be executed before the Azure plugin begins teardown of the node this would allow for an easy automated cleanup.

  19. Capacity alert for virtual machine

    [Problem]
    Users cannot know the high utilization event happens in the selected region until they file a new support request.
    In result, user will experience the allocation problem.

    [Solution]
    The alert regarding the above will make users avoid the burden of support request and to consider trying other sizes.

  20. ARM support for Generation 2 VHD

    I need to create a Generation 2 VM in Azure from a Gen 2 VHD using an ARM Template. The idea here is to support this via ARM templates. Example:
    "osDisk": {

            "osType": "Windows",
    
    "createOption": "Attach",
    "managedDisk": {
    "storageAccountType": "[parameters('diskStorageType')]",
    "id": "[resourceId('Microsoft.Compute/disks/', concat(variables('rras01VMName'),'-OsDisk'))]",
    "vmGeneration": “2”
    },
    "caching": "ReadWrite"
    }
