  1. Single pane of glass. Manage Azure subscribtions from Azure Pack and reverse

    Not with an additional resource provider, but merge the entries in the same portal.

    Great feedback, and something we will be looking into. We appreciate any continued feedback and further suggestions on this topic!

  2. 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.

    planned  ·  Azure Pack Team responded

    Hi-

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

    Thank you,

    Kylie

  3. Create Multiple NAT rules instead of one at a time.

    The idea is to be able to open multiple NAT rules or ranges at once instead of waiting for each rule to be set and creating the next rule.

    I think this would be a great feature for more people.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow VM to mount external DVD/ISO/VHD/Device

    As of now you can only mount ISOs from the VMM library, it would be good to be able to mount DVD/ISO/VHD or other similar devices from the users computer i.e. mount from the users physical hardware.

  7. Allow modify currently configured network rules (NAT)

    It would be nice to modify currently configured rules that have been applied. When user has created a rule and the ip address of the machine that the rule points to has been changed, the rule has to be deleted to change the rule to new ip.

  12. S2S VPN between on prem and public azure does not work out of the box

    Tried creating a dynamic gateway from the wap tenant portal (NVGRE gateway functionality) to public azure. Couldn´t get it to work unless manually setting the parameter "PFS Group" to PFS2 instead of the default PFS2048 in SCVMM. There´s no way to tweak this from the tenant side as far as I know

  14. Only allow user from tenant site create VM using Request Management function

    I found something interesting about VM creation and request management(using Gridpro software):
    For example, if a user has a subscription and this subscription has VM clouds service, then this user can bypass request process and go directly create VM from the menu at the left bottom.
    Is there a way that we can prevent user to create VM through this and only allow user to create VM through request process ?
    I suggest Microsoft provide a function that admin can hide the menu for tenant users. therefore, user can only create VM through request management function only.

    Thank you for your feedback! One workaround would be to setup a script that runs on the SPF event to intervene with the VM creation when it comes from the portal, but we plan to review the idea of hiding these elements from the Tenant UIs or in some other way helping you to achieve this scenario.

  15. WAP RunAS account

    Please allow creation of RunAS account in Azure Pack, this will make creation of roles more faster. This means that user can add domain\administrator and password and save it to the Azure Pack database. User can then use the option to use RunAS account when creating a Role instead of typing the domain\user and password every time a role is created and will increase success of creation of the role. If the user has password that is complex it can be frustrating if the role is not created because of incorrect password typed in.

  16. Show Role as offline when all instances of VMs are powered of

    I have some customers asking if it would be possible to show the role as offline instead of the green check mark in front of provisioned. The customer does not want to drill down into every role to see if the VMs are powered off.

  19. Please allow custom comments per vm/role/network/service

    Please allow IT Admins to create custom comments per vm/role i.e. one would like to comment on virtual machine specific information about the service installed on vm, custom comment per network if customer has multiple networks it would be good to have some comments about the network.

  20. Global Search for Roles/Templates/Disks/VMs

    Please add global search for roles/templates/disks/VMs and different selections will provide different options i.e. if the user selects a role it will create a new role, if the user selects a template it will create a new template, if the user selects VM it will show the dashboard.
