    1. Delay load balancer rolling health threshold until first pass.

      We would like to implement an application-specific https load balancer probe for rolling upgrades. This always fails initial deployment because none of the VMs in the scale set have the application installed yet. It would be nice if the rolling upgrade threshold could be ignored until it passes for the first time.

    2. I would like a probe for load balancers that uses the status of a DSC from an automation account

      I would like a probe for load balancers that uses the status of a DSC from an automation account. That way, when a VM is reimaged in a scaleset, it is unavailable to traffic until the DSC shows Compliant.

    3. Permit Outbound Rules to reference secondary IPconfigs

      Is there any plan to permit an "Outbound Rule" on an External Standard Load Balancer to reference a backend address pool that is in turn referencing a Secondary IPconfig of a Network Interface?

      Currently when I try this I get the following error:

      OutboundRule <outbound rule name> cannot be used with Backend Address Pool <backend pool name> that contains Secondary IPConfig <ip config name within a NIC>

      I am able to reference the first (primary) IP Configuration of a NIC - but this VM (a Palo Alto firewall) has multiple IP addresses on its external interface which we wish to…

    4. RST packet is sent from probe of load balancer.

      The probe use RST to disconnect a TCP connection that established 3 way handshake. If I use an software to monitor some paket, the software will detect some errors by RST paket. I hope we can use FIN sequence to close the TCP connection.

    6. Configurable HTTP status code for Load Balancer Probe

      The HTTPS probe considers any HTTP status other than 200 to be a failure. Any response 200-299 should be considered a success. See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-6.3

    7. Show Traffic lights on an ILB Rule showing which node traffic is being passed too

      Load balance rules do not show which server(s) traffic is currently being sent to.
      Within a “Load Balance Rule” simple traffic light of Green /or Red against a node would give a quick visual indication that traffic is being sent to the node.
      This would help us identify if a service had/was stop on a specific node or if a node was turned off.

    9. On Azure portal,under Load balancer the statement of floating IP should be updated.

      Recently i took a case ,customer complained this .On Azure portal,under Load balancer the statement of floating IP "says 'We recommend using this feature only when configuring a SQL Always" needs to be updated.
      The statement needs to be updated as follows :
      We recommend using this feature only when configuring a SQL AlwaysOn Availability Group Listener and SQL Failover Clustered Instance (FCI) IP Address.

      The current statement appears to be old and was true before we started supporting SQL FCI on Azure. You can see the details here
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sql/virtual-machines-windows-portal-sql-create-failover-cluster

    10. Load balancer probes health status via the api

      The back end pool health status, per VM, using the configured health probe should be available via the API.

    11. Load Balancer - HA ports stateful failover

      Currently, when a node (NVA) becomes unavailable, active sessions are not moved over to another healthy node in the pool, only new sessions get directed to healthy node. It would be nice to add support for the stateful failover of the active sessions.

    12. Could be possible LB TCP and UDP flows on all ports simultaneously when you're using an Public load balancer

      Unfortunately, HA ports configuration is available only for internal load balancers. It is not available for public load balancers.
