  1. Bug: Version Release selection missing for Linux Images

    It seems like the version release selection is missing for Linux (i tried Ubuntu LTS) virtual machines. I can see it in the old portal (attached screen shot) for Linux and both in old and new for windows.

  2. Connection between Virtual Machines and Virtual Network

    In the current Portal:
    - In Virtual Networks I can see which Virtual Machines are in that Network
    - In Virtual Machines I can see in which Virtual Network that Machine is

    In the preview Portal:
    Both Features are missing!

  3. VM Fails when upgrading DS4, stops working with DS13

    I was upgrading my VM from 4 cores to DS4 which is the smaller 8 core. Wouldn't do it, and failed everytime I tried. I then upgraded to DS13 which is another 8 core with more memory and that worked. Tried to go back down to the DS4, but failed again. After a day the DS13 crashed and wouldn't start back up, even when restarting from the portal. I then had to try to upgrade to DS14 which is 16 cores which I didnt need but it worked. I shouldnt have to pay this extra money for hardware I dont…

  4. Need to create Sharepoint Farm with an already existing DC

    In the SharePoint Farm creation, there should be an option or check box where you can join an existing dc instead of creating a brand new dc

  7. Password verification (check) missing when creating a virtual machine

    When creating a new virtual machine the password verification (check) where you type your password a second time is missing. Making it real easy to have a wrong password. It's there when you want to do a password reset but not when creating a new machine.

  9. Allow for option to have waagent re-run custom extension code in case of machine reboot

    Currently, if a custom extension is running and a VM reboots, then the extension code will automatically be re-run. If there is a code change, then the extension code will rerun. However, if the extension code is unchanged, there is a check for it and the extension scripts are not run.

    However, if a customer is bootstrapping a machine or set of machines, and that host is rebooted during the process, then that bootstrap will have failed and will not be reattempted.

    It would be nice to have some kind of flag or option, that would allow custom extensions to…

  10. Allow using MSDN/VL product key for SQL gallery images

    I would like to use the SQL 2012/2014 Enterprise gallery image and use my own product key so I don't have to incur the extra charge of running SQL that is included in the SQL gallery images. I believe this is allowed for the SharePoint 2013 gallery images so why not include SQL?

  11. Show boot status / availability to remote desktop

    During boot, I can never know when the machine is available to RDP, it would be awesome to have some way of knowing when the machine is ready. Specially after add / remove features when the shut / boot process takes some time.

  13. VM from image false storage account message

    A false message comes up when you try and create a new virtual machine from an image in the new portal. Instead of telling you the true location where it’s going to be created it gives you a random storage account depending on your Resource group. Because it’s also locked and you can’t change it, you get the misleading info that the new vm will be placed in the wrong storage account and you can’t change it. However in the end it creates it in the storage account where the image is located, as it should.

  14. Prevent Automatic endpoint creation when creating a Virtual machine

    The ability to prevent Automatic endpoint creation like RDP would be a nice feature especially as we want to lock down the machines (internal machines which are only accessible from a terminal box) and not go around and delete the endpoints after virtual machine creation.

  17. Unable to remote to a VM with OS Win 2012r2, when Windows Updates are active.

    Unable to remote to a VM with OS Win 2012r2, when Windows Updates are active.

    Created a VM with the above OS, and after Activating Windows Updates - it does not allow me to remote back into the VM. the only workaround is to create new VM and start over. This is extremely frustrating.

  19. Support for Bug Related or System Related issues.

    Notice that you cant leave a support ticket or support incident when you notice an issue with the service.

    What is the best way to notify Microsoft of some type of negative experience with the service?
