  1. Effective route tables for VMSS

    As confirmed by PG in Support case 119091125000146 there is no way to query the effective route table for a VMSS instance, thus leaving 100% VMSS based infrastructures completely blind.

  2. VMSS rolling updates on custom images

    Allow rolling updates on custom images.

    Currently if you build a custom image and create a VMSS with it you have to manually "roll it out" via upgrade. Seems silly when the image is housed and built just like any other. were just talking about watching the upgrade process by way of the VM's "upgrade status"

    seems doable not sure why its held back, especially when the VMSS set knows its "not current"

  3. Allow VM console access when storage account has firewall enabled

    It's pretty ridiculous that the Azure VM serial console won't work when the boot diagnostics storage account has a firewall enabled.

    First, it should be possible to use a firewall for additional protection of boot diagnostics. I understand that the storage has to be written from the host server, not the VM, so it might not be on the correct vnet; but this should be considered a "trusted Azure service", or there should be another option to allow it.

    Second, the Serial Console is not the same as boot logging. They are two separate things! I should be able to…

  4. Request new feature : Converting existing unmanaged VMSS to managed VMSS.

    the scenario is
    1. we has an existing VMSS with unmanaged os disk already
    2. we want to convert to managed os disk in this VMSS.

    currently, it supports signle VM to migrate from unmanaged os disk to managed os disk, but it does not be supported for VMSS scenario.

    the current solution is we have to buildout a new VMSS with managed os disk and move our service from old VMSS to new VMSS, this has high risky(for exmaple, move the data from old VMSS to new VMSS, etc.),

  5. Ability to read properties values in Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachineScaleSets/extensions/settings policy alias

    Would like to be able to create azure policy that can check the value of properties in VM & VMSS extensions. For instance if I have deployed the AzureDiskEncryptionForLinux extension i would like to further validate that the available settings for that extension are configured per company policy. so ability to add something like the following in a policy rule:

    "field": "Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachineScaleSets/extensions/settings"
    "containsKeyValue": "EncryptionOperation:EnableEncryption"

  6. add which availability zone a scale-set instance is in to the overview panel

    on the VMSS-.>instances->instance page, please expose which AZ the instance is running in.

  7. Support put metrics from multiple nodes from a VMSS into a single chart in metric explorer

    Currently, from metric explorer I can view some metrics from a single node from a VMSS. For example, I can view CPU percentage for node-0 in a chart. However, it will be more useful if I can put CPU percentage metrics for other nodes in the same chart so that I can view all CPU usage in a single chart. Then I can do a second chart for network for all nodes.
