  1. Give precise explanation why deployment/re-deployments have failed

    Having been asked to give my recommendation re. Microsoft Azure, I applied for Free Trail - successfully. Then, I decided to create a Virtual Machine and SQL database instance. My request was processed for several minutes, and eventually came back to me with response "Failed". Next day, I send request "Redeploy" a few times. The response was also "Failed" with an advice to try again.

    It would be great to know, what is going on.

  3. Streamline Resource Manager VM Deployment/Removal

    Streamline Resource Manager VM Deployment/Removal:

    With the classic deployment model I could spin up a VM in a few clicks/minutes and if I wanted to delete it I could simply delete the cloud service and it would ask me if I wanted to delete all associated deployments. Quick-and-easy/hassle-free.

    I like the configuration options of the new resource manager deployment system, however, it takes a ridiculous amount of time to spin up/tear down a VM and its associated deployments. I have to create/configure all of the individual components one at a time and wait for each one to finish before creating…

  6. Failed to import VM

    I had to change the Cloud Service of a DC, which was also a DNS server on my VNET, for internal billing services. I used PowerShell to export the VM and then tried to import the VM again into the new Cloud Service. It failed with:

    New-AzureVM : InternalError : The server encountered an internal error. Please retry the request.

    After a few more tries, it generated the following error:

    New-AzureVM : Networking.DeploymentVNetAddressAllocationFailure : Unable to allocate the required address spaces for the deployment in a new or predefined subnet that is contained within the specified virtual network.

    I removed…

  7. Allow Graphics Cards and Other Drivers to be installed

    I would love it if Microsoft Azure VM's could have Graphics Cards and Sound Drivers. Currently, I do not know how to install them, and these Drivers do not come pre-installed.

  8. New VM standard level between A0 and A1

    I would like to see a standard VM level between A0 and A1. A1 is over four times the cost of A0. Budget was set using Basic tiers, but we need standard for disk encryption which is the primary reason to move to Azure. The PHP/MySQL App will have a maximum of three users, but A0 is a bit slow.

  9. Make it painfully obvious that spinning up a VM with third party software will immediately disable my subscription

    I used 2.5 hours of RHEL 7 for dev/test and was surprised to find my subscription disabled with $42 credit left.

  10. Temporary drive reporting incorrect space

    The space reported by the temporary drive for an Azure VM was incorrect. I have attached the screenshot for the dir output and the drive space reported in the UI.

  11. Interface to Access Virtual Machine online

    Generally whenever we create any virtual machine we need to bind the VM with public IP or Instance IP so that user can login to VM using any connector like putty or RDP. What about if user wants to work on VM without using Public IP though online portal or online emulator connected to the azure portal? This can provide a benefit to the user or increase user experience by which user can see/access/customize the feature before linking to the public access.

  12. In Re

    In regard to Virtual Machine setup, after setting up VMs we need to map the respective VM to Public IP to access the respective VM through any connector like - putty, RDP. Can we provide an interface so that user can directly login to VM on the browser to see their environment without using RDP or putty.

  13. Allow Azure Subscription owner to define the recommended virtual maskine sizes.

    It would med great, if a Azure Subscription owner could define the recommended virtual maskine sizes. We now recommend using Dv2 mashines as the default.

  15. Save action should not block navigation

    On some resources when you choose Save after making a configuration change on a resource, the blade must be left open until the Save action completes and you cannot navigate else where without getting an warning that changes will be lost. For example, adding a data disk to a VM takes sometimes 1-2 minutes so I have to wait. What I end up doing is opening another tab in the browser to continue working. All Saves should be immediate and allow you to navigate away immediately. Most time this is true, but some actions require you to wait.

  19. Ability to sort virtual machine size choices by monthly cost

    It would be a good idea to give an option to sort different VM sizes by approximate monthly cost. Quick Ascending or Descending sort.
