    This was declined in 2014 for some reason, but Azure would improve more if each user can vote more than 3.3 times.

  3. Add download of SSL certificates from key vault

    Provide ability to download an SSL certificate from the key vault for use in other services (e.g. Azure API Management which only accepts uploaded certs).

  4. Static IP for VPN Client over Azure P2S Solution

    Concurrently, we can allocate Static Private Address space for all VPN Client (using SSL VPN) via our On-Premise network.

    Since Azure offers P2S solution as VPN Client access, there is no configuration where we can do the same as with On-Premise network.

    Though it is very much efficient if P2S can be further modify to allow us more control over IP allocation as we can do the same via On-Premise VPN Client, hoping that this solution can be look upon by your Product Team.

  6. No Confirmation pop-up when we RE-Size VM

    When we re-size VM in Azure portal, As soon as we select the new VM Size it starts resizing. Ideally it should give a confirmation pop-up to confirm the resizing to be done. As it can lead to the accidentally resizing of the VM. ( It happened in my case). So i request MS to add the confirmation pop up before the actual resizing should start.

  7. Support OData for all Azure Resource Manager REST APIs

    Currently only operations on resources provide partial OData query syntax to filter results (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn790569.aspx#bk_common).

    Why not using $filter, $top, etc. on all REST APIs?

    For example if I want to get information on every VMs with a name starting with 'foo-' I would like to do a List all VMs operation (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/mt163572.aspx) with a $filter=startswith(name, 'foo-')

  10. Offer missing services in Brazil (Recovery, RDSH template, etc.)

    As a South American company working with 'old style' internet providers that have differing bandwidths or fees for 'nternational' traffic. The more services we can get near our location the better.

  11. 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

  12. Export Azure DNS Zones to the format of BIND

    Hey
    We wanna backup all our current azure DNS Zones. But currently only Azure Standard format is supported. that means there no solution to allow us to backup these zones/record in to the format of BIND. As Azure support import zones by the format of BING, but not export. this is quite incovenient for our such large amouns of DNS zones. plz review this proposal.

  13. Azure Site Recovery HyperV clean up after removing protection

    I recently had to move protection of on-prem HyperV site to another new subscription. During the move I removed protection for the VMs (/not managed)
    On-prem the HyperV Host was still under the impression that the servers should be replicated. I got various problems re-enabling the protection of VMs. I found out that I needed to clean up manually by using these PS :
    $vmName = "SQLVM1"
    $vm = Get-WmiObject -Namespace "root\virtualization\v2" -Query "Select * From Msvm_ComputerSystem Where ElementName = '$vmName'"
    $replicationService = Get-WmiObject -Namespace "root\virtualization\v2" -Query "Select * From Msvm_ReplicationService"
    $replicationService.RemoveReplicationRelationship($vm.__PATH)

    It is not possible to disable the replication…

  14. Point-to-Site VPN DNS issue

    After connecting the VPN client on windows 10 machine, I faced two differences in communication:

    When I connected through WiFi, I am able to communicate Azure VNET.
    But When I connected through Ethernet cable, I am unable to communicate to Azure VNET.

    This is because of traffic route, which change according to Metric value of the Network Adapter. So by changing this metric value to 100 for ipv4 and ipv6, I am able to communicate to Azure VNET from Ethernet connection.

    But, it's not the reliable way to change it for each machine Ethernet adapter. So, "I am expecting the…

  15. Allow Skype Phones To Sign Up For Azure

    I have been paying for Skype for 7 years, yet Microsoft does not allow me to sign up for Azure with a Skype account.

    Please stop using phones as an identification method; allow a credit card to work in place of a phone, or better yet, since Skype is a Microsoft Company, allow Skype users to sign up for Azure.

    Skype is not a second hand phone, it is my only phone and has been since 2009.

  16. Recovery Site Services / Backups for Canadian Datacenters

    Well the Canadian servers are welcome, we are still waiting for the recovery services to become available prior to migrating approximately 25 servers across a few subscriptions our clients who have been waiting for Canadian availability.

    Any updates on when this is going to be happening? With two of the clients if it does not happen before the end of July they will be finding other solutions. (~5 instances for these 2 clients)

    Please advise!

  18. Change "Max NICs per VM" to at least 2 for all VM sizes

    A customer of mine is evaluating Azure and is requesting that Microsoft increase the maximum number of NICs to 2 for the Azure VMs that currently have a maximum of 1 NIC (e.g. A0, A1, A2, A5, D1, D1v2, DS1, DS1v2, F1, F1s, etc.).

    The reason/justification is that even the smaller-scale VMs should allow for Production implementation of Management Zones with separation of management traffic from application traffic (and separation in Network Security Group rules).

    Note: Through a quick review of documentation from AWS, it looks like their maximum NICs per instance - or what they call "Maximum Elastic Network…
