  1. Allow configuration of a GRE Site-to-Site VPN in the Networking Virtualization Resource provider from the tenant site

    Since SCVMM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 5, administrators can create a GRE based Site-to-Site VPN tunnel.

    However in the current Azure Pack Update Rollups, the tenant can't create a GRE based site-to-site VPN tunnel in the portal. Currently if a S2S tunnel is created, the Network Virtualization resource provider defaults to an IKEv2 based tunnel which not many routing equipment out there supports out of the box.

  3. Adding, removing, growing and shrinking of VHDX files should be an online operation

    Currently a VM has to be taken offline to add, remove, grow or shrink a VHDX. If the operating supports it this should be an online experience.
    Future online capabilities should also be online in Windows Azure Pack

    Can you clarify what you are trying to accomplish? Thank you!

  5. Better remote managability

    Setting up remote Management (e.g. console or remote Desktop Connection) for tenant portals is very tricky at the moment.
    Struggling selving errors, weak documentation (explanations), setting up is not straight forward, so please provide detailed installation instruction.

  7. Disabling VM Role in Azure Pack

    [SUGGESTION]

    Could be possible remove the VMRole with configuration in plan.

    And, It could be possible to remove the VMRoleSizeProfile with:

    Get-CloudVMRoleSizeProfile | Remove-CloudVMRoleSizeProfile

    VMRoleProfile empty is very confused for users

  8. Scaling out a Domain Controller in Azure Pack

    It would be nice if a customer can use a VM Role from the gallery to install a domain controller and then scale out this resource by adding additional domain controllers. Currently if you decide to scale out your DC you get another DC on a new domain with the same domain name as the first DC...! It would be nice if it could join the existing domain and promote as an additional DC wityhout holding any FSMO role, just acting as additional DC and GC.

  12. Limit maximum possible VHD size

    It would be very help, when WAP will have quota for individual VHD size, in similar way as in Azure. For example, customer has quota 2TB, but any individual VHD can have max size 512 GB only. Larger volumes is ncecesary to craft inside VM. It can greatly simplify back end backup solution to avoid processing extra large VHD files like 2TB+

  13. Extend WAP integration with WS and SC 2016 for SDN Load Balancing

    Extend WAP integration with WS and SC 2016 for SDN Load Balancing. Biggest gap from HNV 2012 R2 which prevents enterprise and production workloads to be hosted on current 2012R2 HNV version. Nowadays when almost everything is using REST these services cannot be load balanced. Load Balancing is one of the first requirements at any environment with more than 2 servers.

  17. Add VM hardware settings to Gallery Item

    UR6(?) introduced a way to create Gen2 VMs though a custom setting on cloud; this is rather a wacky way to do it as forces just the Gen2 for all VM roles which severally limits scenarios. For example Linux distros don't have good (or any at all) support for Gen2 and secure boot.
    If we just could specify the VM hardware setting (like Gen version, secure boot, boot order) when authoring a gallery item it would bring a lot of value for WAP!!!

  18. Option to remove the additional IP from your virtual network

    In UR8 we have the option now to assign multiple IP's to our virtual network. only when we delete the NAT rule, the IP is still available for the tenant to use when creating a new NAT Rule, which is fine, but the tenant needs an option to delete the additional IP from his subscription.

    BTW I also wonder if an extra ip is a separate billing item in the usage?

  20. Hybrid Cloud Management

    Azure must provide Hybrid Cloud Management using single portal thereby managing VMware, Amazon, Micorosft or any other cloud through single portal. As of now, We can manage vCenter Server in SCVMM so we can create cloud and tag it to vCenter server but AWS can not be managed. Many customers are looking for this option where using single portal multiple clouds can be managed. If Microsoft can implement such hybrid management in Azure Pack then this product will become more useful in market as well.

    Hope Microsoft Team will look forward on this requirement.

    Thanks,
    Mayank Dhama
