  1. Understand VM Sizes that are in All Caps

    If when you create a VM via PowerShell you specify the VM Size in all capital letters "BASICA1" for example the Azure portal will not properly give you the specifications for the machine (the size section is blank on the VM details panel), but if you use mixed case "BasicA1", the machine specifications will properly display.

    Either the internal representation of the machine size should be kept consistent, or the portal should ignore case when looking up the statics on the machine sizes.

  4. Can't start or stop VMs

    Although I see my VMs, I can't control them from portal. They works as IIS and I can use remote desktop.

  6. iso's from msdn

    when servers deployed and need to bring in iso's to install them could you not link to msdn downloads in portal area to make it easier to bring to the servers

  7. Eliminate ghost network adapters

    When you deallocate and re-allocate a VM the net adapter is re-created and a ghost is left behind. After 200 or so restarts SMB stops working.
    A known fix exists, but I feel this should be automated by azure

  9. Let me change back to the classic portal

    The new interface is a ****** toy. It's the windows Vista of Azure interfaces.

    No way to upload my own VHD to run. No way to change the drives on VMs. Half the interface is missing in favour of constantly funneling me to a market that I don't want.

  10. Convoluted mess.

    Stop trying to force me to use the market. I've uploaded a VHD, but can't DO anything with it. This is garbage! Let me right click on a VHD and create VM from it. Or something! Just pretending it isn't there is ******* me off.

  11. Proactive fault-finding. My VM can't be started with an internal Microsoft issue. Apparently I have to fix it myself.

    "The operation cannot be completed at this time because an upgrade is currently ongoing"

    VM now offline for 24 hours. This IS a support request, but I don't want to pay for support when clearly this isn't my fault.

    I've never had this sort of issue with Amazon. Clearly MS should track when a VM is attempted to be started and subsequently fails, and the root cause of this. Instead they ignore it and require a support case to be raised.

    Frankly: a bad taste in my mouth. Will be going back to Amazon, and recommending it to all future…

  13. from gallery

    I signed up to have a FreeBSD VM.
    I can't find it in the Marketplace.
    I can't find out how to upload my own image.
    I came, I saw, and I'm going back to AWS.

  14. ubuntu faster deployment, domain name hassle not working or blocking. concept is excellent but needs improvement! To be easy: digitalocean

    Domain name hassle not working or lacks easy to do concept.
    Your Azure concept is excellent but needs improvement!

    To be easy like digitalocean, all i need is a 5$ droplet, that i can create the latest VM with the latest Ubuntu server, connecto via ssh. Install my LAMP or just apache.

    Easy stuff, that Azure seems, too complicated right now...

    If they make it easy (its already semiotic oriented, object oriented) ...so the foundation of Azure is excellent. Just needs more Point-And-Click CTA UI and processes.

    Keep the good job, it is excellent, im sure it is the platform…

  15. No. of disks in an image

    In the new portal, the number of disks shown in an image is always 1, irrespective of the number of disks actually in the image. The (now) old portal correctly displays that the image has two disks, the new portal shows only one disk. Screenshots attached.

  16. Please reduce unexpexted reboot/shutdown of VM.

    Unexpexted reboot occured on 2015/12/14. It was due to Azure platform problem according to support engineer. Please reduce such unexpected reboot / shutdown of VM.

  18. Please fix the issue outlined here: http://donovanbrown.com/post/2015/08/06/where-is-my-fqdn-for-my-v2-iaas-vm

    Make it easier to find your FQDN !!! (Resource Manager mode).
    See: http://donovanbrown.com/post/2015/08/06/where-is-my-fqdn-for-my-v2-iaas-vm
    It desribes the issue well and the solution is not very user friendly. Make it easier ... this is an important basic requirement. Who wants to use public IPs?

  19. Developers w MSDN Enterprise should have FREE VM's for development purposes.

    As a SharePoint developer w MSDN Enterprise, I would like a FREE VM that has AD + SQL + SP2013 all on the same VM for development purposes only. This would be a low cost to Azure and should be funded by the already elaborate MSDN Enterprise subscription fees. Help us developers and we will help your products.
