  2. Enable Metrics to monitor Disk Usage by default on VM

    Disk Usage & Memory availability metrics are not available by default for VM's. Having this enabled by default will provide us option to create alert rules for these metrics without having to enable azure guest agent or installing MMA.

  3. Examine your scale up process....

    I've noticed that since I added a scheduled scale-up operation to my cloud service, my external uptime monitor alerts every morning for 5 minutes at the precise time of the scale-up operation [I even changed the schedule to be certain of this], which says to me that something about "scaling up" isn't doing as you might think!!

  5. Keep Network Gateway Config on Subscription Shutdown

    If an Azure subscription is shutdown, once it's restarted by fixing the billing issue the Network Gateway settings are all gone. This means that I have to take an even longer outage to get any site to site VPN connections back up and running.

  6. Azure Data Factory Stored Procedure Activity's database linked service not connecting to customized azure integration runtime

    We are trying to connect to the azure sql SSISDB from azure data factory.

    We have the following configuration -

    A customized integration runtime attached to a vnet with two public static ips and the azure sql db which we are trying to access is also attached to the same vnet.

    We ran an Execute SSIS Package activity which connects to azure sql and it ran successfully. Now that we want to use Stored Procedure activity to execute a sproc on the azure sql ssis db and for that we are trying to create a linked service for the database…

  7. Offline installer for Azure point-to-site VPN client

    The installer is through MS Store only. This is a showstopper for organization where MS Store is blocked as part of hardening guidelines for endpoints. An offline/standalone installer is not available as on date as confirmed by MS Support also. Strongly recommend making the same available.

  11. Xamarin Forms SDK for Custom Speech Service (CRIS)

    I want to use the Cognitive speech service (real-time continuous speech to text and interim results) in the Xamarin app. Is there any SDKs or plugin available? Since REST API has some limitations (no interim results), i am unable to go with it.

    So please let me know about the plan to implement Xamarin SDK

  12. Backup Windows 2003 Servers

    We have some legacy Windows 2003 servers we would like to use Azure Backup. We then plan on implementing servers in Azure and it would be nice to have the data available from the 2003 servers already in the cloud to make for an easier restore to the new Azure servers.

  13. Make it easier to get your invoice so I can have it approved for payment.

    I am not able to access my current invoice online. For over a week, I get a message that it is not available when I click on Download available invoice.

    Error

    Our system is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

    So I keep getting messages that my bill is over due.

  14. Be able to see NAT IP Address in the Azure portal

    When connecting through Express Route to PaaS, Microsoft Azure assigns NAT IP Addresses to each one of the physical links. It is not possible to see those IP addresses from the Azure Portal. We need to know that information in order to allow those IP addresses in the local firewalls.

  15. Why to ask credit card details for login to Azure from MSDN subscriptions

    For MSDN user, why the system is asking for credit card details ? MSDN user is entitled for some $ per month.

    My suggestion :: Let them use MSDN benefits, if they exceeds, than the system should prompt for credit card or converting to EA, and if they disagree the resources should be shutdown.

  17. Health alert email option to send as text instead of html

    Currently with health alerts they come as html. I would like the option when configuring them to either send as html or as plain text. it is much easier to parse emails in plain text.

  18. Allow posting support messages about performance issues and malfunctions without requiring support plan

    I have many identical databases deployed to Azure. One of these databases at the moment suffers extreme performance loss, while much larger databases with the same schema work fine. This indicates technical issue in Azure. Unfortunately it is not possible to report this to Microsoft unless signing up to support plan. In other words it is not possible to notify Microsoft that something is wrong with their service unless you pay extra monthly fee for this privilege. I find this unacceptable - I am not asking for developer support - I just need to inform Microsoft about problems in the…
