  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Avoid default public ports

    Previously when creating a new VM the public port was set as Auto for the RDP and PowerShell ports -- now they are both(public and private) the same Default ports: 3389 and 5986 -- (mainly when using the preview portal in creating the VMs). Can we please have this reverted back to the random generated public port so that the VMs are more secure?

  10. CREATE TEST FRAMEWORK FOR IAAS TESTING

    There is no Test framework today to test the IAAS hosting. All the automation testing is difficult when handling multiple subscriptions.
    Microsoft should release a framework for this

  11. Drop down selection CIDR (ADDRESS COUNT) selection -Virtial Network Configuration

    Configuring virtual networks in the current portal is easy and straight forward especially with the help of the CIDR (ADDRESS COUNT). This is no longer available in the PREVIEW portal and will be a great addition for individual users and small businesses who are not used to the CIDR application of IP addressing or non-networking professionals.

  12. Pre-notify administrators about data-loss possibility or volatile SSD cache disk in Standard VMs

    When someone is using Standard D VMs, it has 50 ,100 , 200 GBs +++ of cache SSD attached with it which seems to be volatile in nature and there is a text file placed in that disk , pre-notification of this will notify users about possible data-loss and clear there confusion about cache disk and data disk .

  13. The new portal does not allow to easely swap between VM setings. Example compare end point setings. The old portal was good on that.

  14. multiple VM create jobs

    When creating multiple VM's, it a waste of time waiting for the 1st vm to finish creating before starting to configure the next. Could you give us the option to save "VM create" jobs that can run sequentially. so for example I create 10 vm's all at once. In the background, the vm's get created sequentially?
    New site looks really cool. Thanks
    Adam

  19. another way to copy VM image to another storage account

    the storage account has a limit with storage I/O (20000) ,so we can't create too many VMs in one storage accouht. but we found if we deploy the VM with custom image we can't find a easy way to copy a image with data disk. we can only copy all VHD to another storage account and create new image from OSdisk .then create a vm and attach datadisk, at last, we need to recapture new image.

    we think it should find a new way to copy the image instead of copy the VHD because the new VHD is just a…
