  1. Windows 8.1, Windows 10 in x86 32bit mode

    Currently I can only deploy (create) Virtual Machine (resource based) based on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Both are 64bit.

    I would like to have ability to create a x86 based, 32bit based Windows Virtual Machine, 8.1 and/or Windows 10.

  3. Unable to select App Id LUIS Connector for Logic Apps

    <English>
    The LUIS connector for Logic Apps is not available for standard use due to the update and now we need to input the App ID directly to use it.
    We request early improvement since this situation might cause lots of confusion to users.

    <Japanease>
    ロジックアップにおけるLUISコネクターにおいて、App IDの選択ができなくなり、App IDを直接指定する利用となっています。
    利用において混乱を招く可能性が多くあるため、早期改善を要望します。

  4. Provide a means to mark an IaaS Virtual Machine as unhealthy or 'not yet ready'

    Currently when the infrastructure decides to reboot a VM for maintenance there is some kind of internal probing done by the Hypervisor to determine when the VM is healthy and then to reboot VM's in other fault/upgrade domains.

    The conditions under which a VM is considered healthy is too optimistic.

    Our database servers need 5-15 minutes to 'warm up' before being 'healthy'. This means the infrastructure is taking down both our primary and secondary virtual machines in a time frame that overlaps with both their warmup periods, bringing down our production application.

  8. Add Azure environment variables to Instance Metadata Service

    In Instance Metadata Service, I was disappointed that I did not see a way obtain information about the Azure environment for a VM. For example, I want a VM to discover its subscription ID, tenant ID, and resource group name in which it was created.

  10. Binaries building and hosting for Open Source projects

    In Nodejs world, building native binaries for several platforms using node-gyp and wrapping it with nodejs wrapper is getting popular.
    Case in hand is node-sass, a wrapper around libsass, which builds and host its binaries on GitHub, which happen to be a not very viable solution. See https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/504 and https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/535.

    It would be nice if Windows Azure team shed some love towards open source community and provide building binaries on multiple platforms (Windows, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, FreeBSD and Mac) and hosting them for free of cost.

    On a related note, it would be great if Microsoft consider building…

  11. Add ability to bulk delete old images in ACR

    Please add the ability to remove multiple images from ACR. These are piling up as we do automated continuous deployments and there's no clean and easy to purge old and no longer needed images.

    Sometimes I'm able to delete one image at a time, sometimes this option is disabled. It would be awesome to have checkboxes with a select all option and do a bulk delete, or better yet, set up rules for images older than x versions to be auto wiped

  12. I have an Elastic DB Pool, and attempted to resize my eDTU performance level from 100 to 200. This has taken hours and still reports as "Up

    I have an Elastic DB Pool, and attempted to resize my eDTU performance level from 100 to 200. This has taken hours and still reports as "Updating...".

    I know that this is still preview, so maybe that is it. It also appears that there is an issue in East US 2 with Network Infrastructure and Storage so maybe that is the problem. Or maybe I ran into a new bug that the engineering team needs to be made aware of....

    Not sure, but thought I'd report it,

  13. Need to have cap on each Azure Account

    Azure Dev team, need to plan to include cap ($) on each azure account. If it reaches that cap limit, the azure admin needs to update the cap details, for that particular account.

  14. Allow me to repair my Azure Virtual Machine VHD online through a tool because my VM on Azure had a power outage and it needs disk repair.

    Have access to the VM to fix my disk issues. My VM won't boot because of a bad disk causes by a power outage in Azure. The Diagnostics screen capture shows I need to do a chkdsk or a repair, and well you can't type in a bitmap image. Now I wait up to 18 hours for a customer service rep to fix the problem which I should be able to do myself as if the VM was here in my office. And no, downloading the 128GB VHD and repairing it locally then uploading is far from an optimal solution.

  16. 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.

  17. Add Papua New Guinea to your country list where Azure is commercially available

    Hello, I am a Software Developer the love developing Web Applications using Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server as Database Storage Engine.

    However, in my country the existing Internet Service Providers(ISPs) do not offer Web Hosting Services with functionalities such as Control Panel for easy deployment of my Web Applications with seamless integration with SQL Server.

    Having developed web applications for use on premise for a long time, I now see Microsoft Azure as the answer to my prayers to start developing web applications that can be reached on the Internet both from within my country and worldwide.

    Please add…

  18. dumb voip requirements for Azure sign up

    Because of the dumb backwoods requirement to have a NON-VOIP number in order to sign up for Azure instead of using MS's Skype, our modern VOIP numbers, or just using a CC number like modern corporations, I suggest that you look up local payphones and have MS call that payphone with the connection number.

    Hopefully MS will join the 21st century some day. At least the no longer use fax numbers.
