  1. Make any new SSMS version 17.x backwards compatible with SQL Server 2016 Integration Services

    Currently only SSMS 16.x can connect to SQL Server 2016 Integration Services. Using SSMS 17.x will result in an error.

    • Have monitoring at an instance level for virtual machine scale sets

      Right now monitoring for Azure VM Scale Sets is limited to aggregate values. It would be great to be able to see instance level metrics like CPU, RAM, etc.
      The current workaround is to use a third party tool like new relic for this, but it would be good to have as a native feature

            • Be more forthcoming about Private Preview features

              When a feature is discussed as in "private preview", it would be nice to have information about how to become involved in that process. Putting a ticket in to request information about how to get involved resulted in hours of wasted emails and phone calls to be told "we don't know" and "wait for the public preview" over the course of two weeks, by which time it will be too late, and the edge a Gold Partner should have in upcoming technologies now non-existent.
              Really, just a link to how to request access/ participation would be enough.

              • Get the 70-532 certification book out as soon as possible

                The current book for 70-532 - Developing Azure Solutions is really very outdated w.r.t. the objectives laid out at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-532.aspx

                The current certification exam and the book are really far apart in terms of ARM, the new portal and other content and topics.

                Also initially the 2nd edition of this book was planned November 17 ending but now the same has been changed to Jan 2018 which is really very disappointing.

                Hence I think the books should first hit the market and then the exam objectives should be aligned. There is no point in trying to get a certification for…

                  • Allow admins to customize the text on the SSPR site. It would be nice if the text stated they could change their password on the SSPR site.

                    Currently there are two different pages for resetting and changing the user's password. Why not combine both reset and change on the same page? Technically you can change it through SSPR, but the text does not say it can.

                    • alter when Azure initiated host node reboot action and VM does not work

                      When there is Azure initiated host node reboot action going on then there is issue RDP to the VM and this is ack by MS team.
                      Can MS alert the VM owner when such things happening?
                      it will be helpful to the team to know rather doing troubleshoot.

                                  One of the great enablement's of azure is that you can build end to end solutions based on multiple azure products, delegate access through resource groups, and view/report total monthly running costs of a given solution and trace it back to business results and outcomes. (e.g. app-xyz with a storage account, sql db and data factory) – this can be achieved through resource groups and/or azure tags, currently either is not possible in Azure Batch at a granular level.

                                  It would be ideal to have the ability to logically group compute, pools, and jobs for delegation and costs purposes. A…

                                  • REST Guidance or iOS(Swift) QuickStart for Cosmos DB

                                    It would be great to see examples in the Quickstart for Cosmos DB for iOS that does not require an SDK, further any example that does just REST calls would be great.

                                    • offer VMs with more than 20 CPUs

                                      GCE and AWS both have single VM instances with 64 or 128 CPUs per machine, it is ludicrous that the biggest data science VM on azure is only 20 cores.

                                      • Possibility to create groups on NSG

                                        I would like to sugest the possibility to create groups on NSG, to agroup ports to same services. Like as firewall. For example:

                                        Group SAP
                                        And inside this group , all ports enabled.
