  1. Need premium Kafka Clusters (S series) in Japan-west region.

    For better Kafka throughput, in Japan West region, we need premium clusters but it is not offered in japan west region. We have checked, all the other regions offer Premium clusters for worker nodes for Kafka. To improve performance it is necessary and hope Premium VMs will be made available in Japan West region asap.

  2. Suggestion regarding the HDInsight

    While creating a HDInsight cluster, if we select the container, which is being used by other cluster it should alert the user then and there, it however raises a flag at the summery page in the end.

    It will be lot simpler for the users if they have a drop-down list of available containers in the storage account which are not in use.

  4. Option to create On demand cluster with Data Lake store as storage

    Hi Team,
    I could not find the option of selecting Azure data lake store as the storage medium while creating the on demand HD Insight cluster. I browsed the internet and learnt that On demand cluster + ADLS option is currently not present.
    Would be helpful if that is made available

    Thanks,
    Surya

  5. Better error descriptions when scaling cluster size

    When trying to scale the number of nodes from 12 to 24, I received a generic error message stating "Failed updating cluster <CLUSTERNAME>, with the detail just saying "Submitting the scale request". When trying to scale the cluster from powershell, I get no output whatsoever - not even an error.

    The problem i was having was that my subnet was out of ip addresses, and would not let us scale any larger because it was out of addresses. The error output, while accurate was not descriptive and resulted in needing to open a help desk ticket to identify the issue.…

  6. Improve your documentation and Training - stop with the videos

    stop using videos for your training and your documentation.

    Videos
    --> Cannot be searched to be used as a reference
    --> must be followed at the speed of the video rather than at my reading speed
    --> Do not offer hands on tools to play with.

    MSFT Used to provide "time bombed" VMs of configurations for experimentation and scripted training. This needs to come back and the videos need to be used only lightly for demos and PR

  7. Enable tagging network interfaces at the HDI ARM template level

    Having multiple clusters in the same Resource Group it is impossible to easily determine which network interfaces belong to which cluster. It could be solved by assigning tags to network interfaces.

  8. How to create quickstart cluster using AZ commands

    Please update the article to include the AZ command necessary to create the cluster rather than just using the UI.

  9. Support changing timezone settings on cluster nodes

    The customer is planning to monitor the logs on each nodes in case of failure and would like to change the time zone settings on host operating system of each nodes.
    This is not supported on HDI cluster now.
    Appreciate if you could consider supporting this.

  10. Vastly improve debugging return messages when creating HDInsight Kafka Clusters. The current "Unexpected error" is really hard to debug.

    Over the last 2 months, I've created multiple HDInsight based Kafka clusters. The ability to debug the creation process - On a scale of 1-10, I would give HDInsight a solid 0.

    The most seen error messages are:
    - Unexpected error
    - Conflict
    - Error

    When looking into the details, You find the detailed JSON response body. With the awesome added event timestamps. Sorry to say - but that does not help me figure out the cause.
