  2. Sort list and filter available VHD(X) and ISO files in library

    When a tenant selects to add a ISO or a disk, all the items are shown from the read only lib unsorted. The possibility add sorting and prefilter (for instance based on tags) would enhance the tenant experience and hide unwanted files.

  7. Windows Azure Pack Service Dashboard

    Similar to http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/service-dashboard/ showing the health of services within Windows Azure Pack. For tenants this should be focused on tenant resources. For admins on admin resources.

    Hi-

    We are planning for Azure Stack as a product to include service health monitoring of this sort.

    Thank you,

    Kylie

  8. Choice of datacenter

    If tenant resources are spread across multiple datacenters, there should be a choice of datacenter as a unit of organization.

    Thank you for your feedback! We too would love to bring this Azure-consistent functionality on-premise.

  9. Ability to create Replicas of virtual machines from WAP to Microsoft Azure

    As a disaster recovery mechanism, allow tenant VMs to be replicated to public Azure. Possibly a cloud service that is activated by an admin and consumed by the tenant. Test failover, planned failover and unplanned failover should be controllable by tenant from tenant portal.

  10. Multitenant AD and ADFS

    Service Providers are moving from dedicated environment per tenant to automated shared environments. Active Directory and Federation forms challenges in these scenarios. Making these services truely multitenant and allow tenant interaction though Azure Pack helps Service Providers overcome these challenges.

    Thank you for your feedback! We have this on our radar and appreciate any further feedback on this feature and what you would like to see.

  11. Point to Site support for Virtual Networks with client configuration option in WAP

    Allow a tenant to interact with his virtual machines running on a virtual network by providing point to site connectivity. The tenant should be able to configure his client through the tenant site.

  12. Versioning and approval of SMA runbooks

    When an SMA runbook is edited there is no inbox possibility to revert to the previous version or select an older version. Combining this with approval will also prevent unwanted changes. This also fits in with RBAC.

  13. Role Based Access Control

    Role based access control for both the Admin Site and the Tenant Site. A Microsoft Azure configuration might then also become a possibility where there is a single portal (Admin and Tenant merged) where the permissions are forced through RBAC

    Hi!

    Azure Stack as a product will support RBAC capabilities just like Azure. To clarify, it will not be coming as a feature in our in-market Azure Pack.

    Thank you,

    Kylie

    under review  ·  Beth Cooper responded

    Just to confirm the request, this is around having the complete SMA experience for tenants, correct? Should tenants be allowed to author their own runbooks? Or are you looking to have the admin provide runbook content for the tenants so that they can run and schedule approved runbooks?

  15. Add CTRL-ALT-END to the Console Connect login screen

    Today it is not obvious to a tenant how to log on to a VM from the Console Connect screen. There is a small menu in the Console Connect screen that could be used to trigger CTRL-ALT-END.

  16. 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

  17. Allow tenants to protect and recover their virtual machines

    It is very important for tenants to have control over backup and recovery of the VMs they created in their Windows Azure Pack VM Clouds. It should be possible to backup VMs while online and recover while offline.

    We are reviewing a feature for disaster recovery for VMs. If you have particular ideas about the feature, please share with us here. Note that disaster recovery and backup/recovery are different features.

  18. Update the Azure Pack for Windows to use new UI

    The portal preview should also have an accompanied update for the Azure Pack for windows.
