  1. Fix backup and recovery so that when you recover a disk it actually restores the disk and overwrites the broken disk?

    Hi Engineering,

    I'd opened a call with support to help with recovery on a Linux VM OS disk. The call reference was REG:117120617274810. I decided to attempt to restore the disks. However, the disks don't overwrite the disks on the shutdown VM.
    After several days, I found out that escalation support could not help me with the issue as this is, in the agents words "blocked".

    Perhaps this should be fixed so that restoring the disks actually restores the disks to the state they were in when the backup was taken?

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Regards, Jim

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

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    The current book for 70-532 - Developing Azure Solutions is really very outdated w.r.t. the objectives laid out at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-532.aspx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

  10. 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.

  14. Create Azure Batch features to logically group compute, storage, pool and jobs

    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…

  16. 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.

  17. Azure Functions Syntax

    Azure Functions supports scheduling with "Chron" syntax. Except Chron syntax supports "L" for Last day of the month - but it causes an error with Functions.

    It would be nice if the syntax were implemented completely. It's probably a small job.

  18. Fix Live accounts getting suspended for no reason.

    Locking us out of managing our servers while your Live Support team "investigates" is not a good business practice. Took me all day to get to the chat window, only to be sent to an online form, still unresolved. What do I do now?

  19. Remove Cloud Service Pinning or allow it to be changed

    Currently when a cloud service is created it is pinned to a compute resource (server, blade or rack), this means that if the compute resource becomes overloaded existing cloud services may not be able to scale up when they need too and the only methods to resolve this is a) delete production deployment and redeploy 2) delete the cloud service and recreate these are both high disruptive.

    An alternate option would be great.
