    • Internal IP for static hosting

      Loving the idea of static websites on an Azure blob storage. Would like to be able to add this site to an internal subnet so it can be placed behind an NSG, App Gateway or a Firewall. I understand this feature is in preview but this would allow a lot more solutions to meet client needs.

      • static website error handling, change 404 to 200

        I am trying to host a SPA on the new website, using history (pushState) routing. 2 considerations here:

        1. Using CDN supplies for missing SSL for custom domain, but on 2018 I consider both to be very basic and "cannot live/do anything useful" without it. Even if CDN may be useful for production, there are a lot of develop/test use cases where CDN only makes everything more difficult. Using plain http is not an option for inherent insecurity.

        2. Trying to use html5 pushState/history routing, something is required to handle reloads for missing paths. Support for custom error document somehow…

        • Why is the nomenclature so confusing?

          The usability of Azure is really confusing. If I open AWS management console, I can understand the concepts and start using within 5-10 mins and script up my workflows easily using the CLI.

          Whereas Azure the nomeclature is very confusing and I can't get past 'subscriptions', 'resource-groups' and 'accounts'. And to make it worse, EventGrid registering a routing rule is called 'subscription' again.

          It appears there are silo PM's sitting around and coming up with disparate concepts and the user is burdened with putting then together. Or is the strategy that individual developers should not be empowered and always go…

          • Add Support to Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2

            We are running File servers in multiple regions on Windows Server 2008. We are looking for a Cloud solution to move the data over and decommission On-premise File Servers. Is there a way MS can add support to OS 2008 quickly?

            We wanted to evaluate Azure file sync but this OS seems to road-blocker for us. Any help?

            • Support chunked transfer encoding on Blob PUT

              Currently the PUT API for block blobs requires a Content-Length header. This essentially makes the API unusable for clients that use async pipelining to start sending the blob bytes while they are being received or generated, and therefore before the total content length is known. Rather, it requires the caller to buffer the entire blob locally, determine the length, and then call the PUT API with that length. This is inefficient. When using an async client SDK, like the Java Storage SDK v10, knowing the entire content length ahead of time should not be necessary. See https://github.com/Azure/azure-storage-java/issues/336, for example.

                An assigned custom domain does not route to index.html similar to the original Azure-assigned URL.

                                • Azure Files Network Drive Mapping with Intune Policies

                                  Would be very handy to see Intune option of mapping network drive directly to Azure AD Joined devices. In Intune there is no option even to map regular network drives, but Azure File Shares would be game changer.

                                  • Ensure enabling Azure Storage Emulator debug log does not cause it to crash

                                    If the Azure Storage Emulator is installed on the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system and started, it terminates unexpectedly after a period of time, if the following config directive, is set within the "<root:\<user name>\AppData\Local\AzureStorageEmulator\AzureStorageEmulator.5.5.config" file (see attachment):

                                    <LoggingEnabled>true</LoggingEnabled>

                                    The status message "The storage emulator was successfully started." is never displayed (see attachment).

                                    I switched this capability on hoping it would assist with debugging a connection issue.

                                    • Storage Explorer log file : to help resolve network proxy issues ?

                                      On a specific client network, Storage Explorer is unable to connect to Azure services.
                                      "Unable to establish connection using current proxy settings. Please verify current settings by accessing the proxy dialog in the toolbar."
                                      Is there a log file with a more detailed error description ?
                                      - what is the service being contacted (url) ?
                                      - what is the exact error ?

                                        • Change detection for azure file shares

                                          It would be useful to have a change detection capability for Azure File Shares similar to USN for volumes on Windows server.

                                          Using Azure File Sync ensures that the sync of updates from on premise to cloud is fast. However the reverse from cloud to on premise takes 24 hours. It would be very useful to have this feature and could minimise effort for organisations to build/test/deploy custom data transfer artefacts just to sync from cloud to on premise data stores.
