  1. Recovery Services Azure to Azure between different regions

    Hello ! At this moment we can fail over in "Azure to Azure" model only between region's locations. For example if source resource group is located in West Europe we cannot use USA as a target location. Six months ago or more there was a disaster fail of a whole region - unfortunately, I don't remember what was it. However, you will find this event in Azure event logs on the portal. I kindly ask Azure backend team - would you be so kind modify "Azure to Azure" mode and include different regions for target and resource groups please ?…

    • Increase listener limit for Application Gateway

      Application gateway has a very low listener limit (20 listeners / certificates). This severely limits it's usefulness for multi-tenant/domain applications where a web farm / service hosts many endpoints. IIS itself has no such small limit, but due to constraints on certificate deployment in cloud services, Application Gateway is the only clear path to wide scale SNI based SSL hosting. With it's low limit, it does not come close to meeting our use case. I would suggest the limit be removed or set to a very high limit like 10k+ so many certificates could be bound to host many different…

        • Implement a feature that allows password expiry notifications from Azure Active Directory

          Enable functionality where admins can turn on "Your password is about to expire" email notifications for Azure Active Directory users. Add configuration items to this so it can be configured to send an email to users at 5 different stages (eg. 14 days out, 7 days, 3 days, 2 days, 1 day) etc. It's 2017 already.

            • Azure ARM Templates vague error messages

              The request content was invalid and could not be deserialized: 'Required property 'type' not found in JSON. Path 'properties.template.resources[0].resources[2]', line 1, position 4150.'. (Code: InvalidRequestContent)

              I just find that error messages like these are no help what so ever. Example, (line 1, position 4150). Can we get a little more specific?

              • Make Azure AD Domain Services available in CSP subscription

                Currently Azure Active Directory Domain Services are not available for CSP subscriptions. Firstly because you can't deploy classic VNets in CSP subscriptions and this service is required to setup AADDS. Secondly because AAD is not available for CSP subscriptions to manage from Classic Portal and according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/active-directory-ds-faqs there is no Powershell cmdlet to turn on AADDS. This means you can't use AAD features like Kerberos authentication in CSP offerings.

                • Application Gateway support an Azure Web Apps

                  Application Gateway can't connection Azure Web Apps.
                  AG is a PaaS of ARR.

                  Currently to run the multi Web site with single IP with Azure PaaS, we can't use Application Gateway.

                  So we need to build ARR using VM or Cloud Services.

                  It's so legacy.

                    • Registering users for Azure MFA with AD FS 2016

                      Add the ability to support inline proof up (registration) of Azure MFA security verification information with ADFS 2016 login page.

                      We have over a 100k users and require to enable MFA for federated applications with ADFS. Pre-registering for MFA is a poor user experience and would increase 1000's of calls to the service desk.

                      • Allow to connect to VPN from command line

                        We have more deployments in Azure and each has its own VPN. Currently it's not possible to connect to VPN via command line. That's why full automation is not possible.
                        We have to open the network settings, click on the VPN connection and hit Connect button.

                        What we would like to see is to download not only the exe that installs the VPN, but also a script that provides ability to connect & disconnect to/from the VPN.

                        • Enable Apple Mac binding with Azure AD Domain Services

                          Azure AD Domain Services are great but the lack of support of Mac OS devices makes it really complicated to use. Providing a way to bind these devices with a cloud only AD solution would be great.

                          • Key Vault like as RA-GRS

                            Currently, Key Vault have redundancy and availability, but I can not access to secondary region manually.
                            https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/key-vault-disaster-recovery-guidance

                            Region fail over is automacically, however I would like to access to secondary like as RA-GRS of Azure Storage before than failover because I want to more enhance BCP of our services.

                            * I guess, Azure doesn't occurred region failover so far, but services failur occurred sometimes in regions.

                                  We have several customers that want to move their vaults from a webdirect subscription to CSP. Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. For longterm backups there is no other way than leaving the vault in the old Sub.
                                  Are there plans for making vaults more flexible?

                                  • Add parameter to allow "temporary storage" drive letter to be specified at deploy-time

                                    Provide option in ARM template to specify the driver letter assigned to "Temporary Storage". Currently defaulted to D:.

                                    There was a similar, declined, suggestion from over 3 years ago: where MS suggested they were looking at improvements. @Corey Sanders goes on to say it would require another reboot, well, I currently use DSC to move it, and that requires another reboot, so it's neither here nor there, whether the additional reboot is fired by ""Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/" or "Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions":

                                    • IPv6 over IPv4 - Protocol 41

                                      Our remote workers use Direct Access to connect to applications and services hosted in Azure.

                                      Outbound management from Azure to the clients is currently not support.
                                      Microsoft have confirmed Azure does not support IPv6 over IPv4 - Protocol 41.

                                      It would be a huge help if we could get support for this.

                                      • CORS for App Proxy

                                        There should be CORS setting available on App Proxy just like we have the CORS available for App Services.

                                        Making calls from Azure Apps into an Azure App Proxy App is a very common scenario, especially when on-prem applications are surfaced externally using App proxy.
