  1. Oracle Database VM for BizSpark Subscribers

    I want to ask that if it Oracle Database VM is not for Biz Spark subscribers then why it is displaying in our VM list?
    Do you think that it is a good practice that first you give option to your customers to create oracle DB VM then ask him to delete that VM ignoring that he have some saved work in that VM.
    I think this is your system bug.

    Thanks

    under review  ·  Varun Maker responded

    Thanks for the feedback, Alan. I am guessing your feedback is more around improving the performance of the VM creation rather than the functionality, correct? I ask because the functionality already exists today.

    Just so that you are aware, this forum is for Cloud Services. We also have a Virtual Machines community (http://feedback.windowsazure.com/forums/216843-virtual-machines) where you can find answers to all Virtual Machine related questions.

    Thanks, Aaron. You can pass into PowerShell and REST the timezone you want your VM deployed as. I think the feedback to do this via the portal is also good.

  5. Virtual Machines Disks view must show disk size

    In Virtual Machines when you switch to Disks view, it’s very useful to show each disk size! I mean a new column with this important information.
    Please, this is a simple information, but helps a lot.

  6. Improve the way VHD files are visually associated with VMs in Management Portal

    Every Virtual Machine is associated to a VHD, but when we have multiple Virtual Machines in the same subscription, it becomes extremely difficult to identify the VHD linked to a particular Virtual Machine in the subscription.

    Personally, I will add more information on storage item to correctly and sharply inform the user. I will also set filters on the UI to list only VHD storage items already used by VM (stopped and/or running)

  7. Create a new patched instance and auto swap instead of bringing down single instance production deployments

    When running a single instance every so often the instance will go down for patching. The instance appears as "VM Stopped" for a period of time, then comes back.

    Rather than forcing downtime to a production role, why not spin up a patched version of the instance then swap it in for the unpatched instance, and delete the old one?

    MS documentation already points out the instances can be created and destroyed at any time, so we've already created our apps in a way that can handle such scenarios. Applying the patches this way will save the downtime (we've observed…

    One complexity here is because these instances are persistent, creating a snapped copy might be tricky or impossible.

    Is this something that could be enabled with Auto-Scale?

  8. Provide single VM instance RDS capability

    Standalone RDS (RemoteApp and VDI) is only available for Windows Server 2008 R2 and not for Windows Server 2012. Server 2012 requires active directory and also will not allow it to be installed on the same VM as RDS. Please provide the capability to run all services needed for RDS on a single Windows Server 2012 VM.

  9. implement a REST API call to be able to delete a virtual machine using its public/private ip

    this will make the infrastructure one step closer to a real IaaS environment.

  10. Add VM to DC from management API

    Currently it is only possible to add only new VMs to DC either through management API or powershell.

    For example there is a VM, which i want to join to DC running in the same VNET and in azure IaaS. There is no way we can do that either from API or Powershell, VM needs to be added to DC manually by specifying DNS IP in IPV4 config.

    It is alway important to update existing machines that are running in work group to be added to DC and VNET without bringing them down.
    Also it would be useful for managing…

  11. Allow FQDN access between VM roles.

    Currently I cant communicate between 2 VM roles using FQDN. I have to use ip address.
