  1. Not able to update Traffic Manager through PowerShell

    I am trying to change the routing method of traffic manager from Priority to Performance using PowerShell ISE.

    I am using the below commands to achieve this-

    $ep = Get-AzureRmTrafficManagerEndpoint -Name <EndPoint Name> -ResourceGroupName <Resource Group Name> -Type: <Endpoint type> -ProfileName: <traffic manager name>
    $ep.Location = 'Location'

    $tm = Get-AzureRmTrafficManagerProfile -name <Profile Name> -ResourceGroupName <Resource Group Name>
    $tm.TrafficRoutingMethod = 'Performance'

    Set-AzureRmTrafficManagerProfile -TrafficManagerProfile $tm

    When I run this command, I am getting the below error-

    " Endpoint name '' is invalid. Endpoint names cannot be empty or all whitespace, and must be up to 260 alphanumeric characters long. The type ''…

    • How To recover the Google Account without using the recovery email

      First of all the user needs to sign in to the Google account.

      Then the users need to enter the username and the password for signing in to the email account.

      Then the users may enter the email address and the corresponding password for signing in to the Google account.

      In case the user does not remember the password, then the user needs to answer some security questions. After answering these questions, the users will be able to recover the password of their Google account in an easy and fast manner.

      If the user forgets the answers to the questions,…

      • Cross Project Visibility and Work Item Tracking

        I am employed by a Microsoft Gold Partner. We implement Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations which requires Azure DevOps to manage the code repository. As a partner with multiple clients I need the ability to manage tasks across many parallel projects. Currently, when management asks me about the back log within my development team I have to look at 25+ sites. This is not practical. How can we achieve a cross-project portal?

        • That you put in a chat option for Microsoft Account issues

          There are chat options for Azure and all products but one, the one that provides single sign-on between all services, Microsoft Account.

          I had an issue that was not resolved by any of the knowledge base articles, I tried to access chat to talk with someone but there was no way to do so. Eventually I ended up in Azure pre-sales. They couldn't help me but did provide some better links than the "Chat Assistant" ever did over the 20 minutes I tried to fight with that thing.

          • Email notice before design change

            We really need an email notice before design change in Azure. Last time when TLS 1.0/1.1 without SNI parameters became non-available, there were no email notice and that caused lots of troubles on customers. There was an notice on Azure updates page, but I think it was not enough to let people know the design change. Please consider the email notice before design change.

              • Azure MFA Server on Prem - Show phone extension no matter what method is selected

                If any other method besides phone call is selected in the user portal as the primary method, users are not presented with an extension number entry field. This means that if a user wants to have multiple options for account recovery and wishes to change a phone number, they would be required to select phone call as their primary method, change the phone number and then remember to go back and change their method to the desired primary method.

                    • Correct a tiny typo: "Laern more with Windows 10 IoT Core" https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/digital-twins/

                      I was a little surprised that your spell check didn't catch this: Laern. Maybe it means something in another language. :-)

                      • Provide support for portal.azure.com

                        When something seems to be broken in the Azure portal itself (https://portal.azure.com), there is no avenue to get support from Microsoft.
                        If Microsoft expects customers to use https://portal.azure.com to manage resources they are already paying for, Microsoft should provide support for https://portal.azure.com withing requiring an additional paid support plan. Paying for Azure resources should include support for https://portal.azure.com.

                              • SSMS - Add temporary names or labels to query windows.

                                The names of the query windows are always the same. For ex: SQLQuery01.sql, SQLQuery02.sql .. SQLQueryXX.sql. When too many windows are open, names are mangled. Can we give the windows a temporary name? Instant tags without the need to save.

                                Also. More tabs can be accessed if the tabs can be reduced.

                                • Create default folders on temporary storage (D) - example sql temp location

                                  Lots of customers wondering why tempory storage (D) is even present.
                                  I created a script that will create folders upon start up prior to start of SQL services if not already present..
                                  It would be nice if some standard named folders where already present after longer period after shutdown/reboot of server.

                                  That way we could actually use the drive for something good.

                                  • Microsoft Azure203x(Azure Virtual Networks)Certificate NOT RECEIVED for over 4 Months.

                                    It is with disappointment that I write to inform that after receiving a voucher from "Fast Lane LIVE <info@fastlane.live>",15th May 2018 on passing Microsoft Azure 203x(Microsoft Virtual Networks) and the voucher validated on 16th May 2018 at "https://academy.microsoft.com/en-us/voucher&quot; and "https://cloudsociety.learning.microsoft.com/oauth2/authorize/confirm", I haven't received my certificate till date. I have contacted both ITLS and Fastlane in a series of emails and they informed that they have escalated the issue on several occasions with dates like 3rd June 2018 and 23rd Oct.2018 significant where I concluded that they are totally helpless. I am not happy. On…

                                    • Billing - RI can be filtered down to subscription level

                                      Please provide the function to see purchased RI not only on EA level.
                                      Its necessary to make the purchase of RI down to subscription level. (in our case: organisation with more than 20 subscriptions and RI purchased scope for single)

                                      • Application Service Environment for Developer

                                        As a developer, I would like to have a closed environment for development purposes of PAAS and Function applications. An environment similar to ASE that can be configured for network isolation but smaller and cheaper.

                                        • Gamelift for azure

                                          I think it would be nice to add a service to easily manage game server like aws gamelift.
