  1. VM not starting

    One morning, I try to start a VM it just keep trying for hours. No visibility what's going on. There is no clue what's happening in backend. Seeing error is more comforting rather seeing forever Starting...

    It was frustrating...

  3. The virtual machine automatic shutdown page is not functioning. I can't set a time for the machine to shut down.

    Please fix the page for setting automatic shutdown of virtual machines. Whenever I try to set this the page errors out and doesn't allow me to set the properties I need to set.

  5. A way to create a new DevTest VM using a formula from Release Managment

    I love how formula's work in the DevTestLab and so easy to make adjustments to the formula as you need them. I like the fact that these are always the latest bits. However, right now this only seems to work if I manually set one up what would be really nice is being able to call this formula from a Build Task to create this vm on the fly just before I deploy my application to it in the release pipeline.

  6. Auto-shutdown not working reliably.

    Most days, my two Linux Vms shut down automatically at 7 PM (as configured), but some days not. This happens to me about once a week. The Activity log doesn't show any errors or attempts at "deallocating". I kind of suspect that this failure to shutdown happens only after the machines have been deallocated for a couple days, and then turned on. If there's somewhere else (besides the Activity log) that I should look for errors, please let me know.
