  1. 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"

  2. 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.

  5. UI to change the VM type (An, Dn, etc) is not intuitive to find

    It took me quite a while to figure out how to change a VM's type from one type to another, e.g. from D12 to D3. I finally just started guessing that some things were clickable and happened to try clicking on the current type. Not intuitive at all.

  8. Please fix mistranslation message of 'Create an image from VHD' panel.

    When we forget checking 'I have run waagent -deprovision on the virtual machine' checkbox and click OK button, we'll see 'Required' message. (p1-eng.png)

    However, in Japanese language, the message shows '必要なディスク容量' (p1-jp.png)
    It's mean 'storage size which we require'. ...I'm confused very much.

    Please fix this message, ex. '必須のオプションです'

    It seems like the version release selection is missing for Linux (i tried Ubuntu LTS) virtual machines. I can see it in the old portal (attached screen shot) for Linux and both in old and new for windows.

  16. 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…

  20. Password verification (check) missing when creating a virtual machine

    When creating a new virtual machine the password verification (check) where you type your password a second time is missing. Making it real easy to have a wrong password. It's there when you want to do a password reset but not when creating a new machine.
