  1. 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

  2. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  16. Ability to create a new VM from a VHD or image from Azure Storage

    I know this is possible with powershell but it should also be possible using the New VM wizard from the new portal. This was easily do-able from the old (classic) portal.

  18. Stale notification of shutting down VM

    When you shut down VM (classic), there are often stale notifications that the VM is still shutting down (it can take for ages), despite it's already stopped, started, working on it etc. I was talking to @AzureSupport and they asked to post this bug here. After resetting the session (F5, change language etc.), the notification is finally done.

  19. Boot Diagnostics UI Broken

    The new Azure Portal UI is fundamentally broken everywhere, but to give a specific example:

    1) Click on a VM
    2) Click on Settings
    3) Click on "Boot Diagnostics"
    4) Observe message "Boot diagnostics isn't configured for this virtual machine. Click here to enable it."
    5) Observe that you can not actually click on the message to enable it.
    6) Click on "Settings"
    7) Enable boot diagnostics and save
    8) Return to Boot Diagnostics screen
    9) Observe you still see the message about them not being enabled.

  20. provide allowed ip address management

    one of the most common tasks for managing SQL databases is managing the allowed ip addresses. This is not available in the new portal. In fact there is no link to get to the old portal. I had to get that from a Google search.
