  1. VHD storage classification and live storage migration

    Leverage with VMM storage classification profiles and storage migration. The option for storage class selection is missing. In addition when storage class has been changed for VM hard drives it could initiate workflow for live storage migration to the new selected storage class.

  2. Option to make a VM inaccessible for tenant user after deployment

    When a tenant users deploys a VM or VM role a SMA runbook can be started. If the runbook is being used to deploy extra services to the VM it would be very beneficial if the VM would be inaccessible for the tenant user until the extra services are actually deployed. The VM presence should still be viewable for the tenant user together with a customizable status message.

  3. We need the ability to migrate or copy websites across website clouds.

    It would be nice to have ability to move or copy websites and applications across website clouds. That would be a nice feature for release management as well as in a DR scenario.

  4. Provision VMs without a template - point to sccm or pxe service or even ISO build to give flexiblity to provisioning.

    Templates are great when you have a limited number, but can get cumbersome in large environments. Allow vm and os provisioning via other methods such as pxe, sccm, iso, etc to help streamline template management. - especially useful when trying to leverage dsc/puppet/chef for management.

  5. Cancel a job action for IAAS

    I would like to see and option in the VM Clouds for users to cancel their running jobs. This incorporates both changes to VM's (like adding a disk) or deploying a VM. The WAP portal already supports the Repair option when a VM is in a failed state. So having a Cancel button to stop the running job in VMM, would not leave the customer with a broken VM.

    Why I would like this request is because some customers want to have fixed disks in their VM (for support or performance reasons) and fixed disks take a long time to…

  6. Delete automatically the role assignment when get Identity not found with type Unknown

    Would be nice to implement from your side a way to prune automatically as soon a role assignment get "Identity not found" with type "Unkown"

    this is happening when there is a System/User identity resource link to a role assignment that gets deleted from the resource group.

    This will help when you deploy from ARM template and avoid the following error :

    {
    RoleAssignmentUpdateNotPermitted",
    "message": "Tenant ID, application ID, principal ID, and scope are not allowed to be updated."
    }

    To fix this I have to manually remove it from the resource Access Control (IAM) and then run a new…

  7. Enterprise Subscriptions Co-Administrator Web Sites Owner

    I started off creating subscriptions for teams to use to organize our application environments across all development teams. Then I assigned co-administrator rights to these subscriptions. However when other team members add websites it puts me as the owner rather then the co-administrator who actually created the site. Could we get another field for "Created By" and "Subscription Name"?

  10. 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.

  12. active directory integration

    why does the azure pack not use Active Directory to store it's users?
    It uses an own database which VMM cannot access or doesnt know about, you cannot hand over the ownership of Vms to WAP users from VMM, you have to use special powershell script.

    Can you please adapt the Azure Pack or VMM to do this?

    Thanks

  13. resource provider for postGRE SQL

    I didn't find yet a resource provider that can integrate PostGRE SQL for deploying PostGRE instances.
    As we use more and more open source solutions, it could be interesting to have such a connector.

  16. Allow WAP Admins to migrate resources (websites/databases) across users.

    Please allow WAP Admins to be able to move resources (websites/databases/VM) across users or allow WAP Admins to assign new owners to those resources. I don't want to have to assign Co-Administrators to stale users.

  17. Allow better customization of the standalone or virtual wizard

    When asking users to provide input for deploying VMs, not all options are "enforceable. Admin password, product key etc. always get's prompted.

    Although this might work great in the Service Provider space, enterprise must be able to fully customize the "input experience" to enforce standards and ensure manageability.
