  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Name and Configure Network Interface when you Create the VM

    Currently it auto creates the Network Interface and you can only change it using powershell, you cant change it using the resource manager. But if you were able to Name and Configure it at the creation of the VM, you would not need to change it right after you create the VM.

  12. Docker support for RedHat

    Hi,

    At Cognizant, we are planning to deploy some of the Solutions for Retail Domain on the RedHat Linux platform and are looking to use the Docker Extensions to manage the environments.

    Azure supports docker extensions only on Ubuntu, so we would like to know if any support can be provided for administering RedHat using Docker.

  14. Custom Image without Losing the Original Instance

    Not sure if it has being requested.

    Can Azure provides image capturing process similar to what AWS provides?


    1. Please make it possible to create image without modifying the original instance.
      It is really annoy. Many times we need to capture images from Dev, QA, even prod environments. It does not make sense at all that after capture an image, the original instance can no longer be used;

    2. Wrap all the steps in one command/click;

    3. Having an interface for user to manage the custom images (default storage account?);

    4. Let user be able to launch VM to a storage account different…

  18. Give me a real time dashboard to dial up or down the size of the VM.

    Most of the time my 2 core is fine, until I get a lot of MS Office apps, and/or Creative cloud and/or ThinkorSwim running. As a pay as I go allow me to crank up the cores when needed. Or provide an auto-adjust to load service to pay as go. As a small (one man) biz I really like the pay as you go. I can forget the laptop lugging and use any client computer with RDC to be "home". And the price is right, and I don't worry about the OS update dance.

  19. I would like to submit a request about to have a feature to incremental backup VM image on Azure.

    I would like to submit a request about to have a feature to incremental backup VM image on Azure. In a virtual machine can't create an incremental backup and backup plan every day.

  20. Allow more than 4 data disks to have read caching

    Currently you are only allowed to have 4 disks with read caching enabled on Azure VMs per VM.

    Please consider increasing that as using caching is recommended best practice in many Azure VM scenarios, e.g., with SQL Server.
