  3. Clarify error messages

    Debugging Azure Pack services can be a huge pain because error messages are:

    1: top level messages
    2: global stack traces

    If errors are *more specific it would be easier to debug and would save me a lot of time on the azurepack forums

    This is very helpful feedback, we definitely want you to have as seamless experience as possible when using Azure Pack. Could you provide some examples of any error messages that were particularly cryptic or hard to debug for you?

  4. PowerShell cmdlets configuring federation should support local metadata files

    It would be nice if the PowerShell cmdlets would accept a local file path to the FederationMetadata.xml for the tenant and admin sites instead of requiring an HTTP endpoint.

  5. Please improve the remote console expereince!

    ...from install to the addition of Start/Stop/Pause and send CTRL+ALT+DEL buttons for VM on the remote console application. The goal would be to meet or exceed the same remote console experience that is available via VMM and the Hyper-V consoles. Installation and configuration should also be much easier than what is listed here... https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn469415.aspx.

  6. Simplify deployment of Azure pack into one unified deployment package

    Deploying Azure Pack can be combersome using the current installation process. It requires multiple VMs or servers, SQL, pieces of Orchestrator, and so on. I recommend simplifying the deployment process of WAP.

  7. Installer performance with Windows Firewall

    When you are installing with Windows Firewall disabled (in a restricted enterprise environment) unless the Windows Firewall service is started the installer will fail.

    Can this be cleaned up so there isn't as much of a reliance? It fails when the firewall exceptions are added.

    Are there specific services you are using that you are referring to? What do you mean exactly by “high availability scenarios”?

  9. Improve scaling of Azure Pack

    Allow Azure pack to manage more resources across multiple datacenters. Having multiple Azure Pack deployments breaks the cloud paradigm.

  11. Friendly Logging in the WAP UI

    Please update the UI for more friendly logging. Would be great to have the following: A more concise view, similar to Windows server event log UI with filters, etc. but within the WAP UI. A CSV(etc.) export function would be helpful (with filters applied of course). Holistic, segmented logging, i.e. see multiple components in the WAP logging UI, color-code the different component source providers and have the ability to set the refresh and filters. Maybe allowing an extension to write third-party log info into the UI from the application via system center or windows server nodes. As more IT Pros…

    Thanks for the feedback! We are working to improve how we log and present information to the user. These suggestions are helpful and we would like to hear more if you have them!

  12. Provide load balancing information during installation/configuration

    Provide load balancing information during installation/configuration

    Currently, the only way to configure load balancing of components with an external load balancer in Azure Pack is to use Powershell only after WAP installation and configuration. It would be great to specify FQDNs and URI's during the config phase and would be even greater to be able to specify ports.
