  1. Azure Stack Downloader CLI

    It would be great to have a Azure Stack Downloader CLI to be able to automate the download and beeing able to download and deploy the Azure Stack DevKit on Windows Server Core. Currently it's not working because the Browse Dialog is gray.

            • Deployment via ARM should support managed disks schema at the very least

              I am not suggesting that all the technology of managed disks should be possible on Stack although this would clearly be useful. I think that, at the very least, Azure Stack should be able to deal with the managed disks schema in ARM templates without erroring thereby allowing for templates to be deployable seamlessly between Stack and Azure.

                • Bug creating new accounts

                  Hello:

                  We are in a TP3 PoC with the following issue:

                  - We add a new user in Azure AD as normal user (not global administrator), Azure assign a new temporary password.
                  - We try to login in the Azure Stack Portal and the Portal request to change the password. We get the Error AADSTS90093. We have tried making the user Global Administrator in Azure AD and it works fine, but for a production environment is not suitable. After changing the password we can configure the user as regular user in Azure AD.

                  Has someone experienced this issue?

                  Regards

                  Jordi…

                    • Access to all Portal / ARM interfaces only over HTTP/HTTPS

                      Reduce access / interfacing with ARM / Portal from a tenant perspective to only over HTTP / HTTPS.

                      This will allow for easier access to Azure Stack instances hosted outside of a tenant's corporate network by a user located within the corporate network (which typically restricts external access to HTTP/HTTPS ports for untrusted external internet addresses= via proxy)

                      • IOPs upper limit applied to virtual disks

                        The application of IOPs upper limits (QoS) to virtual disks in line with the Azure-based storage profile for type of storage.

                        This is to prevent "noisy neighbors" affecting other tenants in a multi-tenant scenario

                        e.g. HDD (Standard) - Max 500 IOPs per disk

                        • When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory

                          When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory. This will help prevent any spelling mistakes on the User ID that would require the subscription to be recreated.

                              • Ability to restrict compute sizes available to users

                                It would be very beneficial to have the ability to restrict what compute sizes are available to users via offers much like you have the ability to do in Azure Dev/Test Labs. as we are working with a restricted set of compute capacity it would allow admins to have more granular control.

                                • Customize default dashboard for new subscriptions

                                  Azure Stack admins should be able to change the default dashboard for new subscriptions for tenants.
                                  This would highly improve the tenants first impression and ability to learn Azure Stack.
                                  Examples of topics to put in the dashboard:
                                  Company logo
                                  Corp/Hoster specific information
                                  Links to movies/documentation/alm-platforms

                                    We found some errors during Step 60 but we resolved it by using -ReRun attribute many times. Still I want the main script to be more automated because some people might not know about these things.

                                    • Scheduler

                                      Are there plans to bring Azure Scheduler to the Stack? Or allow for 3rd party schedulers to be used?

                                      Ideally, I would like to see the Azure Scheduler as a default and have the ability to use 3rd party schedulers.

                                      • Ability to support enterprise proxy

                                        In TP2 a transparent proxy only is supported to communicate with Azure. Unfortunately thats no option because of our network security policy. So it prevents to use Azure Stack as a future hybrid Cloud platform. We need the ability that Azure Stack supports enterprise proxy servers with proxy authentication/ssl interception.

                                        • Small integrated systems with Azure Stack

                                          For the integrated hardware and software systems coming from Cisco, Dell, and HPE, it would be nice to have a small turn key system, something line a half rack or one full rack for small businesses or department labs to be able to purchase and run independently.
