  1. make the combined VM and software pricing for SQL Server accurate.

    We mistakenly set up a SQL Enterprise VM however we didn't notice.

    When one of my team went to resize it the prices quoted didn't highlight the mistake (i.e. it was not the SQL Enterprise pricing but the Standard pricing). The resizing blade specifically states “Prices presented below are estimated retail prices that include both Azure infrastructure and applicable third-party software costs. Prices do not reflect applicable discounts for your subscription and may include currency conversions").

    The result was that we were charged over £660 for the month of usage rather than the expected £140.

    In any other retail situation…

  3. VM Endpoint option is missing in preview for ARM Vm's

    With ASM VM you could easily modify endpoint options like port from the GUI. Now with ARM you have to go through a multistep process of using a load balancer with powershell commands. This is clearly a step backwards in usability, please add options to easily modify endpoint options for VMs back to those under the new ARM model.

  4. Live chat option would be nice. Server types missing from VM architecture?

    Interface is confusing. Would be nice to have someone to chat with to understand your paradigm. I'd like to add a VM for Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard, and am wondering why Datacenter is the only option. I understand the two are effectively the same product, except for licensing. I don't want to be shunted into the larger license if it costs my company more!

  6. 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.

  9. view screen vm

    It would be nice to view the display on a read-only screen. Often while doing Windows Updates on a VM, we wait a long period of time before we are about to use Remote Desktop to see what is going on. It would be really nice to know that it is processing updates or some sort of identification of activity waiting for the Remote Desktop to become active again.

  10. Adding endpoints one by one is unforgivably bad in 2015

    This was clearly not thought out and needs to be.

  11. Support better connectivity between remote sites and VMs

    I've found it very difficult to connect (ie: FTP) to my VM via the ARM model vs the ASM model. Endpoints are gone and their replacement is not very easy to understand if even available (load balancer seems to be the closest). Inbound and outbound rules do not appear to do actual IP to IP mapping. In any case please continue to expand the preview portal to support better (easier) networking options.

  12. Include Start/Stop Properties for VMs in.

    Hey there. Loving the new portal - great work.
    I'd like to be able to set the start/stop times for the VMs in the VM Properties or even set start stop times for resource group.

  15. I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this before or not, but if a virtual machine is unable to start for any

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this before or not, but if a virtual machine is unable to start for any reason, there is no error message that comes up. All it says is "Failed" (especially in cases of Premium Storage VM's if there are no available resources to allocate). It would be very nice if the red bar that says "Failed" also provided a link to the actual error message.

  16. Azure Portal services Naming Convention

    If possible could you provide filter option for services like VM instances , SQl databases ( server wise), Cloudappservices majority , it will be helpful to work with particular services settings , monitoring purpose - mean to say that while working with particular service settings it should not go to all list of services once it was filtered.

    its very hard work with more than 40 and 50 number of instance services.

  17. Update the link in the DATALOSS_WARNING_README file on the temporary drive so it points to a valid resource in the Azure documentation

    It would be great if someone could update the link referred to in the DATALOSS_WARNING_README file on all temporary drives, as it is currently a dead link.

  18. check why VM start is taking longer than AWS

    For Virtual Machines, when we try to start a machine that was stopped and deallocated, it take a minute, minute and a half most with AWS.
    In Azure, we were getting 3-6 minutes.

  19. Provide a recovery dumptster for VM's in case of accidental deletion

    In the event of a VM being accidentally deleted, I've found no way to recover said VM. It would be great to have a temp dumpster where you have an 1 hour or so to recover the VM in case of accidental deletion. Also, if you accidentally start to delete a VM, there is no cancel option. That would also be helpful and may resolve the issue without needing a dumpster type feature, although it would be nice to have anyways.

  20. Remember my commonly used base images instead of presenting me the default list.

    There is a canned list of base images when creating a VM. It so happens, I'd like to use CentOS 7.1 as my base and having to go to the Marketplace to search on every instance creation is tedious. Instead the OpenLogic 7.1 base image should be added to the top of the list of canned base images.
