  3. Add fully patched (i.e. up to date) Windows VM templates to the gallery

    Often the first thing I have to do after provisioning a new Windows Server based on a gallery template is installing all updates that have come out since that template was generated. Why doesn't Azure have up to date templates that already contain the latest patches? This would save me a lot of time.

    So what I'm asking for: regularly updated templates for Microsoft OS-es that provision VMs that are fully updated to the latest patch level.

  4. stabilize windows virtual machine provisioning / starting time

    It is hard to teach in class when provisioning and starting a windows VM takes hours. Not a pleasant introduction to azure.

  5. VM remote access

    We found the setup process and options really good. However, the simple process of accessing the VM via RDP has been impossible. We've tried changing the account password that was used to setup, the RDP port etc but eventually gave up as it was proving to be a waste of time. Azure looks like a great product but sad we could never see the full show! Any one else have this problem?

  8. may be bug

    Hi,

    I have created a instance of virtual machine named 'ark-java8' for test.
    after the test, I deleted it.

    and I created another instance, and deleted it, too.

    again, I create another instance, it's name is 'ark-test-kk'.

    But its instance name is set to 'ark-java8' and DNS host name is 'ark-test-kk.cloudapp.net'.

    It will be shown in a image attached. Left top is 'ark-java8' and Bottom right is 'ark-test-kk'.

    I think it is bug.

    with best regards,
    koichi kurahashi

  10. vip

    Permit a limit increase where a deployment requires more than 5 VIPs. This would be beneficial for customers that host multi-tentant applications with more than one public site name.

  13. Info in Pricing FAQ is wrong.

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-machines/

    Go to FAQ - General
    "If my deployed instance says stopped, am I still getting billed?"

    In the Table, STATE="Stopped"; BILLED="No".
    But Details = "If the VM is stopped (...) the software is not billed. For allocated stopped VMs, the cores are still billed".

    So, BILLED should be "Yes"

  14. VM Fails when upgrading DS4, stops working with DS13

    I was upgrading my VM from 4 cores to DS4 which is the smaller 8 core. Wouldn't do it, and failed everytime I tried. I then upgraded to DS13 which is another 8 core with more memory and that worked. Tried to go back down to the DS4, but failed again. After a day the DS13 crashed and wouldn't start back up, even when restarting from the portal. I then had to try to upgrade to DS14 which is 16 cores which I didnt need but it worked. I shouldnt have to pay this extra money for hardware I dont…

  16. Support for Bug Related or System Related issues.

    Notice that you cant leave a support ticket or support incident when you notice an issue with the service.

    What is the best way to notify Microsoft of some type of negative experience with the service?

  19. just a complaining

    I've spent two days to prepare an exchange 2013 lab which including 3 VMs, but failed! It's extremely discouraged me!
    After I feel the lab was almost ready, one VM was unable to contact remotely by anyway. I had no idea.
    Then I re-created all VMs, but the long time of provisioning VM defeated utterly me again.
    I think I would forget Azure VMs. Hope you have a perfect future.
