Support ZRS for Virtual Machine boot diagnostics & diagnostics settings
Here's the scenario: You deploy VMs across availability zones 1-3. You enable boot diagnostics and diagnostics settings and are forced to use LRS/GRS. You opt for one of those. Later Zone 2 goes down, and the storage cluster with the storage account also goes down (bound to Zone 2). And now you lose essential storage for the VMs in Zones 1 and 3, potentially breaking services if any of those VMs reboot or attempt to boot up/deploy.
Other services are perfectly fine supporting GPv2 ZRS for zone redundancy. VMs being a primary candidate for zone redundancy also should support GPv2 ZRS for Boot Diagnostics and Diagnostics Settings.
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

Agreed... we definitely need VMs to be able to use ZRS storage accounts for diagnostics.
