    1. create a non-disruptive an Azure VNET address space update to ER

      create a non-disruptive an Azure VNET address space update to advertise prefixes to expressroute. Currently there is no way to do this without knocking down the connection for a period of time - breaking connectivity between the azure data center and on-premise data center.

    2. stop letting non-Azure Microsoft networks use BGP routes that Azure learns through ExpressRoute. This easily leads to asymmetric routing.

      stop letting non-Azure Microsoft networks use the BGP routes that Azure learns through ExpressRoute. This leads to asymmetry in many cases.

      Also, the current behavior lets bandwidth hungry Microsoft services like Windows Update consume the bandwidth and metered data of ExpressRoute.

      As of today, companies using ExpressRoute need to set up their network in an unnecessary complicated way to avoid this problem.

      One way to do it is to only announce a small prefix, and use that prefix for NAT'ing all the traffic destined for Azure services over ExpressRoute.
      Then one has to make sure that all traffic destined for…

      Thank you for the feedback. If I understand correctly, you would like us to display the ExpressRoute ASN on the portal so that you do not have access the documentation when configuring the peer ASN – as an easy reference.

      Look forward to your response!
