  1. Azure XS Instance Upgrade to 20Mbits Outbound WAN from 5Mbit

    Azure XS Instance Upgrade to 20Mbits Outbound WAN from 5Mbit.

    5Mbit is behind competitor offerrings and can make it difficult to effectively utilize the resources offered in the XS instance.

    Thank you for the feedback. At this time, we are not likely to expand the capabilities of the XS when it comes to network bw.

  2. Display VHD name in Virtual Machines -> Images (in preview portal)

    When you create a new VHD, you are able to give it a "friendly" name (e.g., "ExchangeStorage"). Unfortunately, this name is ONLY displayed in the Storage --> Containers --> VHDS area. A different name is displayed in Virtual Machines -> Images. It makes it a little difficult to correlate which storage VHD drive is associated with which VM drive. The only way to do it was to correlate based on the HTTP address.

    I suggest that:
    • In Virtual Machines -> Images, add a column with the VHD image name.
    • In Storage --> Containers --> VHDS, include the drive…

    Images and disks have their own identifiers as a layer of abstraction over the VHD file. This is by-design. Note that you can filter the grid view with values for Location so that you can quickly find a disk or image based on the VHD file name.

  4. Automated Hot Add and Hot Removal of CPUs and Memory

    Allow for the setting of thresholds for CPU and Memory utilization that would trigger the Hot Addtion (or Hot Removal) or vCPUs and vRAM from a virtual machine, for those Guest operating systems that support those functions.

    Aligned with that, make sure that Windows supports these features in Azure.

    Right now, we don’t plan to support hot addition of hardware to a running VM. You must increase the full size (versus incremental hardware increases).

  5. I couldn't see my virtual machines in the preview portal

    Virtual machines, created in current version of azure portal doesn't shows in azure preview portal. On blade "Virtual Machines" I see only message "We couldn't find any items :-("

  8. Visual Studio 2013 Professional on Windows 8.1

    This was an available option previously (I have one) but now the option is gone to create one as I would like one on the new Australian data centres.

  9. have VMs ready to go.

    It would be nice if VMs were already set up and ready to go when creating quick create vms. deploying a cloud service/VM takes forever. this greatly increases the iteration cycle

    Thanks for the feedback. The complexity here is the plethora of options, extensions, sizes, disks, and other solutions to make this possible.

  10. Can you attach the Image of Windows 8 /7 Clients and Windows 2008 / R2

    Can you attach the Image of Windows 8 /7 Clients to install the VM of the Flavors with Windows 2008 / R2.

    Currently, you cannot run Windows client for production purposes on a public cloud, including Azure.

    For this one, there isn’t much information. I would recommend filing an incident on the forums to get it investigated.

  12. Try making VMs work properly in Northern Europe, even during the weekend!

    Currently loads of problems trying to start, shutdown, or add disks to my VMs in Northern Europe this weekend.

    One of my VMs just shows a status of 'starting' and has done so now for a few hours, since trying to add an additional disk. Whilst in this state I cannot force it to restart, nor shutdown. And even worse than this, whilst I have a VM stuck in the 'starting' state I am unabe to start or shutdown any other of my Vms using the management console. So all my VMs are currently unusable.

    Thanks, Paul. I hope you have had more luck, recently. I would file this issue on the support forums to have them take a look at it.

  13. I can't connect to my vm?

    Could you help me solve this problem? Maybe it is because firewall.

  14. Complain

    All 2 my VMs were not accessible to users(neither ssh nor http) for 15 minutes. But everything was ok on charts. It is very pity, that machine are not available, but you promise 99.9% uptime.

  15. Provide a Gallery Image with Microsoft Office

    I'm a developer who uses Azure VMs as a major test and development lab for my applications. However, my Microsoft Office licenses keep failing in my Azure VMs. It would be EXTREMELY useful if there was a way to develop and test Office applications (such as Access VBA apps) in an Azure environment.

    Thanks!

    At this point, we do not expect to support this. We will let you know if this changes in the future. Thanks for the idea!

  16. Provide a Windows XP Image in the Gallery

    Many of us are supporting legacy applications on Windows XP - even if the only purpose is to migrate said application to something in a newer Windows OS. It would be extremely helpful if we could host those applications in a Windows XP environment on Azure for testing and support.

    Thanks!

    We do not plan to support Windows Server 2003 in Azure. However, we are investigating simplified migration capabilities to move to Azure and Serer 2012.

  20. SQL Server Deletes from Console, but still accessible

    When I ceeate SQL Server in Azure and delete it from console it is gone from console.
    But database in backend still accessible even after delete, it is still accessible from my application.

    After delete from console, if my application modifies something in DB or I created new instance into it, it is added into Azure console again.... :( Why..:(

    Please provide business justification if you have any?

    Thanks,
    Bala
