  1. Allow Multiple disk attach/detach to VM simultaneously.

    Right now API virtualmachines.createor_update is single threaded can we make it multi threaded or can we throttle request coming to server at server end by keeping semaphore or any another approach which is suitable to design . Currently it shows error like GenericError: Changing property 'dataDisk.managedDisk.id' is not allowed which so generic and naive it should have some kind of intelligence at back end .

    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

  2. An easy way to copy VM

    Hope there's an easy way in Azure portal for VM copy, for example: A Copy Button. When I click the button, it will create a new VM same configration as the original one.

  3. Get notify on non-impacting update for some business/mission critical Azure VMs

    Some servers is network sensitive can't afford few seconds of network outage caused by Azure non-impacting update.

    The 2 Azure NetApp HA instances in our environment suffer unexpected reboot every time non-impacting update happens and also lead to other third-party replication services failed and halted.

  5. VMSS scaleset /VM creation validation is successful the images that were not generalized.

    Customer's are feeling mislead when the validation shows successful although they are using images captured from ungeneralized VM's. if there is possibilty to validate if the OS is good or corrupted it would be great.

  6. Fix the recently broken time entry field for automation schedules, VM auto-shutodown

    The Azure portal used to accept times in the format like 1200 or 1700, etc. After a recent change, the format is very rigid and must now be like "5:00:00 PM". Any deviation from that erase user input and reverts. Very annoying, and caused errors for us.

    Example locations for time entry are VM auto-shutdown and Automation schedules.

  7. Automatically generalize VM's upon image creation

    In the Azure Gov online portal, if you create an image from a VM it will enter a fail state because it is an unprepared image. Microsoft will direct you to these docs for creating a generalized VM: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/upload-generalized-managed. All of this should be done during image creation, and new VM's created from those images should work out of the box

  8. Have Azure Update Manager update itself for installations on premises.

    We've had vm's drop from inventory and were notified that the Azure Update Manager installed on premises needed to be manually updated. It would be great if the agent could reach out and check for new updates and update itself automatically.

  9. Basic_A0 size should not list out when create Windows 2016 server from Azure portal

    The least RAM required for Windows 2016 server deployment is 512MB to boot. while Basic_A0 size VM has only 768MB Memory size. This size is not suitable for Windows 2016 server deployment in Azure. Since it will require more than 768 MB to login and operate normal things.

    Can you please move the Basic_A0 size out of the VM size list when we are creating Windows 2016 servers? this can avoid some issue.

  10. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware

    Thanks, dear.. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware encoding, for 18$ flat price.. AZURE should have 4 high performance processors for 3$, + 4 GB RAM + 3$, + Storage usage + 0.10 cent per GB :)

  11. Azure don't give any warning and providing size which will not work for the image we select

    Azure don't give any warning and providing size which will not work for the image we select:

    You can provision a windows Server 2016 with Basic_A0. But the size is below requirement and you won't be able to login and make that server work.

    Most of the time server will go in the failed state.

    I recommend, if azure can give some kind of warning of totally don't provide the size. when the selected size don't meet the minimum requirement for the selected server.

    Regarding the Case - 119052422002805

  13. Swapping the unhealthy physical node at starting VM

    For running VM, "Service healing" will prevents down-time.
    On the other hands, for initiation of VM, user have to wait for VM fully starts and user cannot detect the reason why VM starts slowly.

    I would propose that Azure automatically retry starting VM on another node in case Azure detect unhealthy node events.

  15. Successfully perform Windows Updates on General Purpose VM's

    When creating a Standard A1 v2 virtual machine in Azure, Windows Updates do not perform correctly. Azure Support have advised that the Virtual Machine needs to be increased in size, but i would expect all virtual machines offered in the Azure Portal to be able to perform Windows Updates...

  16. disk type

    During VM creation, it should be speicifed as P6 for Premium disks which is free. Else this creates confusion during creation and unnecessary cost will be involved.

  17. Virtual Windows would be even better if older Windows apps that I own could be run in a container and accessed through virtual Windows 10

    I like Micrografx Designer. I think it last ran under Windows XP. It would be nice if Virtual Windows could run older apps in a container and have them accessible through virtual Windows 10. I realize that there is a problem of licensing and all that. But the whole idea of planned obsolescence, the company owns the license, everything craps out when the company ceases to exist, is what's wrong with computing in a big way. Imagine if all the centuries of written literature crapped out when the writers died because they were only licensing their works to you -…

  18. Windows VM agent for - 2008 Standard/Enterprise 64 bit OS

    Hello as we are encouraging clients to move their Windows 2008 standard/Enterprise workloads to Azure sighting extended security updates for 3 years. But we dont have a compatible VMagent that can run on for these workloads there by limiting the usage of extensions

    Especially for Log Analytics and backup

    This is to be action-ed for clients to have a completeness of the solution
