  1. define the timezone when creating a vm

    Would be nice if you can define the Timezone to be used in the VM, when you create/define a (Windows) machine. That way you don't have to set/change the timezone in the VM after creation.

  2. Pre-requisistes check for the Windows machine

    suggesting an idea., that if the selected VM resources selected by the end-user does not meet the requirements of a windows server 2012 it should suggest. The very first thing you select from the market place is Windows 2012 in the case of Windows OS, so If I were to select a Disk with 20 GB it should warn me.

    I need to deploy Win7 32bit OS on Azure.
    I have uploaded many win7 32bit images to Azure but fails to connect all of them with rdp. All the images are created by Hypher-V. Any one knows how to solve this problem?

  4. allow selection of multiple virtual machines and perform group actions

    allow selection of multiple virtual machines and perform actions on them. for instance, if I need to start 4-5 VMs, I need to do it one by one right now. If I can select multiple VMs and then start them together, that will make it easy. things like, pinning multiple VMs to dashboard, deleting multiple VMs (give warnings in this case), stop them etc. are other things that will help quickly perform such operations on multiple VMs.

  5. Preserve a mac-addess

    Give us the possibility to preserve a mac address, so that we can preserve our licenses inside VM:s, after doing maintenance or temporarily stop(deallocate) the VM:s. It would be good if we can buy a mac address and assign it to a VM. You have today in DevTest labs Network Interface, why not give the possibility there to retain the mac-address, irrespective of state of associated VM. Maybe put a small charge for it, but give us the possibility of choice.

  7. Dynamically Adding and Deleting of VM under LoadBalancer is very important as of now its not possible through azure loadbalancer set

    Problems:

    Load Balancer set is not separated and the configuration changes to LB are Static.

    Provide feature set so that we can dynamically add and remove VM's from load balancer.

  9. JSON template option to specify different VM size for group of VMs

    We are working azure automation. We are using Json template to create the VM. In the Json template, we can specify only one VM size. Option to specify more than one VM size like first two VM is "Standard_D2" and other VM is "Standard_D14".

  11. Support Stopped (Deallocated) in new portal

    Support setting Cloud Service or VM to Stopped (Deallocated) within the new portal.

    Workaround: use the “Shutdown” option from the Microsoft Azure classic portal.

  12. Allow dreamspark subscriptions to have at least 1 vm to assist with their education and learning of interacting with servers through code.

    The sql servers do allow for me to learn how to use those through code, but sometimes an sql server just isnt appropriate for the task you are trying to solve. Furthermore by giving students access to vm it will allow them to build on there code and systems knowledge even further.

  13. changing between subscriptions loses authenticated context and is amazingly frustrating

    once you've logged in, you should be logged in. changing subscriptions re-challenges a login which doesn't work... surprised this bug has been active this long

  15. Termination Protection

    should add a feature to enable VM termination Protection feature. There should be a option to enable this feature like AWS which will save us accidentally deleting our VMs.

  20. Stopping a VM removes the DNS suffix assigned to it at the OS level. Please fix this!

    I have a DNS component installed on one of my servers that uses a custom forward lookup zone. Now that zone has aliases pointing to the VM names and these aliases are used in connection strings. We then assign the forward lookup zone's name at the OS level under the TCP/IPv4 --> Advanced --> DNS - DNS suffix for this connection section, however, if you Stop the VM from the portal it removes this settings causing the environment to be unusable.

    Currently the workaround is to manually go and add this setting within he VM and then Restart it from…
