  1. group resources

    is very usefull if you have multiple applications in different resources hace a container group for manage resources. For example, if you have 2 systems one of then is a Medical system and other one is a agile platform system, if very useful hace two groups names "medical" and "agile" that group your own virtual machines, networks, etc. Is useful too have group monitorization.

  2. Duplicate resource

    create a button for duplicate resource, like "duplicate VM" or "duplicate Application". This option can clone resource and allow user to change names and properties

  3. "SQL AlwaysOn package billing"

    Hello Team, I configured the SQL AlwaysOn package in Azure (setups up and configs 3 or 4 VMs, depending if you have a AD already: 2-node SQL+FSW+AD). The billing for those SQL VM's ended up being extremely excessive (over $3300 per month for the 2 SQL server VMs alone.. D2-1 core-7GB ram only [package uses SQL Ent. Ed.]).

    My question is this: Why is there not a package in the marketplace for 'SQL AlwaysOn' using Standard edition instead?? (Std Edition is limited to 2-node clusters anyways)? The billings for this would be much more economical. It would make meeting the…

  4. Fix your portal software and back-end so that they either reset virtual machine passwords properly or give explanatory error messages

    That is all I get and then the portal does not allow me to submit a technical support ticket for YOUR bug:

  5. Copy files from one Azure share to another Azure share in the preview portal

    The new preview portal allows you to browse file shares and upload data to the share. However, to copy from one share to another you need to mount the share into a VM.

    I would like to select a set of files/folders and copy it to another share right from the preview portal UI.

  6. 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.

  8. I am not at all sure what a free trial covers. I wanted to try A4 with Hortonworks Sandbox 2.3. What is my cost?

    Please make clear what a free trial covers. Can I try A4 with Hortonworks Sandbox 2.3?

    Thanks for the feedback. You’re right in pointing out that some of the features and restrictions of the free trial offer are not clearly presented. We will look into improving this.

    For your particular scenario, I don’t think you can provision a Hortonworks Sandbox because it is a third party product available through the Azure Marketplace. Free trial credits cannot to my knowledge be applied towards marketplace items.

    As for the cost, if you were on a Pay-As-You-Go plan, you would pay an estimated $262 USD a month for full time use on the basic tier. This information is provided before you provision such a VM when using portal.azure.com

    I hope that helped,

  9. 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.

  11. The new VM deployment is confusing to use

    Deployment model? Pricing tier?
    These are confusing and would be better located as advanced settings.
    More common and logical is to jump from OS choice directly to VM deployment, like on AWS.

  12. Why is it so hard to connect to a Azure VM I just created?

    Why is it impossible to RDP into a brand new Azure VM I just created? I specified SysAdmin as the userid and a strong password when creating the new VM (using the VS 2015 on Windows 10 template) and now, no matter what I try, I cannot login to that VM.

    I am extremely frustrated.

    I have deleted and created the VM 3 times now and each time, when I try to login, it offers MicrosoftAccount\sysadmin as the userid, and I supply the password I gave when I created the VM, but it always says "The loon attempt failed".

    What…

  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.

    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。

  15. azure cli 0.9.9 (node: 0.10.25) bug when using "azure vm endpoint acl-rule create" with /0

    The GUI works fine to create an end of list deny all via: Description=misc deny 0.0.0.0/0
    However, the azure cli 0.9.9 will not allow a cidr value of /0

    If anyone is interested, the workaround hack is to do the following:
    azure vm endpoint acl-rule create $vm $endpoint2 20 deny 0.0.0.0/1
    azure vm endpoint acl-rule create $vm $endpoint2 21 deny 128.0.0.0/1

    However, I'm hoping you can fix this in the next release.

    Thanks for the great product!!! --todd

  18. 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?

  20. Preshare Key Viewable or Exportable (Bug)

    Preshare Keys for all VPNs should be viewable or exportable from web portal. Currently when exporting VPN settings, only 1 preshare key appears in the file although there are in fact multiple belonging to the different VPN connections.
