  4. Have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1.

    I suggest to have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1. Ref #117062215932932

    After adding DNS Suffix, the VM always goes into unresponsive status and has to be rebooted via portal. At time people just wait for the M to come up on its own but this never happens. It has to be manually rebooted.

  8. VM creation interface

    Currently, you need to type in all the server details before you are able to select basic features of your machine (i.e. you need to type in a username, password/key, resource group) before you can select machine type.

    You should be able to see whether you are able to create the VM you need before having to do all that housekeeping, especially if you need to check across regions or subscriptions.

  11. Please do not force move the user to new protal

    Most of our admins are accustomed to the old portal and force move to the new portal which looks completely different and definitely has a learning curve will severely affect our business.

  12. Please incorporate support for RHEL in Azure

    Hi team,

    At present, Azure does not support RHEL even though it supports other variants of Linux like CentOS. Please incorporate support for RHEL in Azure as it's one of the common Linux platform used across the globe.

  13. Please engage Microsoft support engineer when supporting CentOS

    Please engage Microsoft support engineer when supporting CentOS

    I filed SR tickets to OpenLogic regarding CentOS kernel, but still no response.
    I request Microsoft Azure Support Team to support and investigate Cent OS itself.
    If there is kernel bug in CentOS, I hope Microsoft Azure Engineers contact OpenLogic directly as official communication path.

    -Japanese version-
    マイクロソフトでCentOSサポート対応してほしい

    CentOSはOpenLogicのサポートということになっているが、サポートの対応が悪く、返信も来ない。
    マイクロソフトのAzureサポートチームにてCentOSのサポートを行うようにしてほしい。
    Kernelの不具合についても、正式にマイクロソフトからOpenLogicに調査・修正依頼を出すような体制を整えてほしい。

  17. How attach Data Disk for /opt folder

    As OS hardening process, I want to attach Data Disk for /opt folder, as there is no single user mode to move the existing /opt files in to Data Disk and mount volume for /opt folder.
    How to mount extra Data volume for /opt folder?

    Even I tried by De-Provision the VM and attach the OS Disk to other, Then Copied the /opt files from the OS disk into a new data disk and make entry FSTAB(OS Disk FSTAB file) entry to mount new disk on boot. Then I provision the VM with that disk attached, everything in vein.
    please…

  18. Endpoint API calls are dropped silently (via salt-cloud)

    When I add multiple endpoints one after each other, some of them are dropped silently...
    I get an OK response for all calls, but only some are executed in the end, so I have to repeat and repeat until all my endpoints get created?

    This really sucks and I think this is related, that there can be only one add-endpoint-call at the same time (which takes 1-2 minutes)... and this also sucks!

  19. Password lengths are not well defined

    When I enter a password for a new Ubuntu LTS VM instance, the Azure web interface tells me the maximum password length is 123 characters. When I make a password that long, VM creation fails and says that passwords may only be between 6 and 72 characters. Please work on making the interface and error messages more consistent.
