  3. Make RDP Connections Work For VMs

    In the old portal when I browse a VM and select "Connect" the RDP connection opens pre-populated with the correct connection details. In the new portal, it opens with no remote address.

  4. No OK button when selecting Storage Account in Create VM Wizard

    When creating a new VM, there is not OK button after selecting a Storage Account - and when you navigate away, it will warn you that you loose your settings.

  5. What happened to the ability to create a virtual machine from a detached disk?

    I used to be able to delete a virtual machine and then recreate it using the detached disk. This option appears to be missing now. How can I create a VM using either my own Image or my detached disks?

  6. Bulk adding endpoints

    Is there a way to add more than 1 endpoints at a time? If not I think this would be a great feature. Thanks.

  8. add feature to run sysprep on vm's pre-image creation

    it would be useful to have azure run the sysprep on an existing VM instead of just asking "have you run sysprep?"

    suggest exposing this as a feature on the create-image div

  9. Share the SharePoint Server Farm creation scripts

    The Marketplace contains a gallery item to create a SharePoint Server Farm. Can the items (scripts/extensions/etc) that are used to create this be shared as a sample that we start with to build our own custom SharePoint Server Farm solutions on top of?

  10. Virtual machine that works would be a great improvement

    I pay my subscription for a virtual machine on Azure but it stopped working this night and now I get "Failed to start virtual machine". Nobody answers at the support and nobody cares. Great Microsoft. Keep on billing me.

  11. Options to set waagent.conf variables (Linux)

    The linux (Ubuntu) machines are not really persistent when shutting down and/or capturing, the waagent.conf is not read properly (even when capturing an image, a new image based on the capture does not include changed settings in waagent.conf).

    It would be nice to have the waagent.conf setting configurable at start up, when creating the virtual machine.

    planned  ·  Corey Sanders [MSFT] responded

    There are a few bugs we are working through to address these issues:

    1) Hostname changes are not persistent across reboots on Ubuntu. This is an issue we are working through on cloud-init which we should have fixed soon: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/walinuxagent/+bug/1375252

    2. Customers cannot use the waagent.conf file to change the location of the local disk mount point or set up swap space in a consistent way. We are working through how to fix this wit these two bugs:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/+bug/1374115

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/+bug/1374166

  12. Machine State For Test Environment

    I use here just for SharePoint farm for now and thanks for user friendly portal. It is really nice to use a great farm at least 3 virtual machines. Maybe it should better if there is no action on machine for couple hours to shut down machine automatically. Maybe I think different from your work politics but it should be better to save limited credits for test users at the beginning

    This cost saving mechanism is something we are looking to enable. You could support this just using Azure Automation scripts to detect and act.

  13. Dynamics AX Machine

    A Dynamics AX machine (the usual demo machine) could be really useful!

  14. Detailed error messages

    My VM failed to provision. The error message did not provide any insight. Prompting the user to "try again" increases frustration.

    Thanks for the feedback. If this gets a few more votes (and possibly some examples of the types of changes) we will consider these improvements.

  16. When shuting down a virtual machin

    Shutdown of a virtual machine gives the following message. Shutdown in the old portal just works fine....

    Failed to shut down virtual machine
    Failed to shut down the virtual machine '.....'.
    Authentication failed. The 'Authorization' header is not present or provided in an invalid format.

    I use an organisation account with 2way authentication, does not know if this matters

  17. The always on group creation for SQL 2014 is broken

    The always on group creation for SQL 2014 is broken. It dies immediately with "Deployment Failed .... Authentication failed. The 'Authorization' header is not present or provided in an invalid format."

  19. Have a 16 core vm with 16gb of ram for cpu intensive workloads

    The current 16 core vm ' s come with huge amounts of ram and are very pricey. I would like a 16 core vm with 16gb of ram for less memory intensive but high cpu loads
