Regional Settings for Windows VM
This request is submitted on behalf of one of my important customers.
When deploying Windows VM from Azure gallery image, we do not have the option to configure regional settings such as language/date format. By default, they are EN-US.
This will incur additional management overhead for customers that have a large deployment who has regional settings requirement. They have to log in the VM to change the settings accordingly.
The VM deployment interface (Azure portal and/or Azure PowerShell) should allow selection of different regional settings, just like the standard Windows setup does.
Please kindly let us know whether we have any plan to make this settings configurable.
This was requested back in 2014 in the folllowing post: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/216843-virtual-machines/suggestions/6602810-vm-regional-settings-and-timezone
However, only the timezone request was addressed, not the regional settings requirement. Please provide a suitable mechanism for portal configuration and automation of regional settings, default display language and keyboard layout during deployment
