  1. Provide icon and vm url for vhd file in container

    When you have a few VMs, you get a lot of vhd files. From the vhds container view, there is really no visual way to figure out which are important, which are active. There are three suggestions.
    1) Small icon next to vhd files that are active on an online vm, say green. White if hooked to a vm, but vm down. etc.
    2) Provide a link to active the vm in a column.
    3) Provide a Description field, for user to describe what the vhd is for context.

  2. Add Japanese resource of System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection to Gallary Image "Windows Server Remote Desktop Session Host"

    I want to view the message in Japanese for System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection dialog at Azure Virtual Machine and at Azure RemoteApp collection by this image.
    I can add a Japanese language to Windows Server 2012 R2, and can change all Messages to Japanese except System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection's messages.

  4. There must be a checkboxes to select Dynamic or Static IPs

    There must be a checkboxes to select what ip to select, and what is happening under them - what 'New-AzureVMConfig' is running the second question. If i want reserved ip - warn me that this will cost me the money, thats all i should know. There is no need to make new instance/service/AzureProvisioningConfig and other redudant stuff. Especially by the hands.
    I click on the VM, i select 'external ip', i agree with term that this will cost me some money, that all, thats how this should work.
    I don't need external ip anymore - i click on VM, i…

  5. Virtual machines are sometimes useless after restart

    I have had to destroy and recreate several machines that refused to start after a shutdown. I get a useless error that the machine "failed to start". I still have some vhd's that I am sure that I am being charged for, but I cant delete them because they are apparently attached to a computer that no longer exists!

    There is also no good place to send problems like this. The problem with their PAID support plan is it assumes that it's always the users fault. I am expected to PAY to fix THEIR bugs!

    What say you, Azure?

  7. availability set for pip addressed VMs

    Consider this scenario:
    1. I have an application that requries more than 150 endpoints so I am forced to use a PIP address
    2. As I'm using a PIP address, the options around load balancing (in any mode) machines in an Availability set is removed and I can only have single VMs
    3. Those single VMs are subject to the possibility of planned and unplanned interruption.

    Either, increase the number of endpoints per VIP allowed (and allow port ranges) or develop a form of load balancing and availability set for PIPs. Permanent, reserved PIPs should also be available.

    Regards
    Pete

  8. I need Windows 7 or 8.1 and visual studio professional on premium storage, BizSpark, West Europe

    There are VM's with Server2012 and visual studio community, but I don't want a server as it is used only by a single developer (we also have problems with visual svn which we do not get on our local windows 7 machines).

    There are also a lot of VM on premium storage, West europe that are exclusive to MSDN, but we can't use them through our BizSpark subscription (although we did sign up for MSDN through our BizSpark subscription)

  11. Why do you take one dollar when you say 0.00 ?

    And even then . When I was just browsing through I created one VM with bare minimum settings and I deleted it in 10 minutes thinking I could create another one but now it says free trial is disabled.
    This is not good.

  13. Indicate status on small icons (1x1) for virtual machines

    When customizing the dashboard, if small (1x1) icons are used for virtual machines, then no status information is visible. Perhaps color (red vs green) or a red x when the vm is stopped can indicate the status of each machine at a quick glance. This would allow for much more efficient use of space on the custom dashboard without sacrificing information.

  14. Display the default setting of the endpoints

    When create a new CentOS VM,
    if there is a default item to the endpoints.

    I want you to display the default items.
    ex) SSH

    Is displayed in the old portal.

    Because it does not displayed, I was fail trying to register the SSH.

  16. fix VM setup to disclose privacy

    Make it known that these VHD's come with spyware and are not "free" but are taking your info to the 3rd party companies that publish them- it would be nice if MS kept uptodate distros so you don't have to VMDK to VHD then upload them to your blob/cloud so you can use them- all these precompiled things have privacy issues that you would never agree to if read. pls. fix this.

  17. Provide a simple way to backup - and restore VMs without requireing downtime

    At present, you can create a full snapshot of a Hyper-V VM, but not an azure VM, The current suggested mechanism (setup out at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn722422.aspx) means you take the VM down, create a disk snapshot,. This can work but means downtime, What I'd like to see is a simple New-AzureVMSnapShot cmdlet, along with a Restore-AzureVMFromSnapshot. And of course, have the functiond available in the Portal too!

  19. Adding TCP/UDP Port Ranges in one go

  20. Custom Attributes for Virtual Machines

    Consider a set of custom attributes a Customer can maintain on a Virtual Machine object in Azure.
    Helpful for Automation, custom reporting, etc.
    Should be easy to implement, already known in VMM and would enable Migration Scenarios.
