  1. 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

    • More Reliable Deployment Script

      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.

            • IPV6 and connectivity issue

              I doubt if the Azure stack will be deployed in pure IPV6 environment hence can we disable the IPV6 on the Domain controller specially in DNS so that there are not connectivity and timeout issues during deployment

              • Time Sync Across VM's

                Most of the Authentication error that happens during Azure stack tp2 deployment is due the lack of time sync with time server I know there is option to added time server in script parameter however it would be good if the deployment prior or moving to the Adfs setup did a time check with external source and confirmed that on the VM

                      • Produce an "Azure Stack Lite" BOM

                        We have a use case where Azure Stack would be a good deployment fit, but the currently-planned integrated hardware offerings (4 physical servers) aren't small enough to match to the small workload we would like to run on it. (We need an offline Azure Stack for small deployments where data does not leave the country/deployment location.)

                              App Service on Azure Stack is currently in preview and the most recent preview release was released in January 2016 well before ASP.Net Core was released. Therefore the capability is not supported at present. We released ASP.Net Core support in Azure App Service on the 27th June 2016. We will ship support for ASP.Net Core in a future preview but don’t have details to share on when that will be.

                            • Easier way of creating tenant spaces

                              Right now I use Terraform to create an entire stack within a Resource Group. With Azure Stack there doesn't seem to be a way to use an API or another automated method to create the customer accounts in Azure Stack. Right now I'd have to manually create the customer's account and subscription and create a service user in AD to be able to have an access key, client id, subscription id, etc to be able to automatically create infrastructure within that customer's space.

                                Some customers can't use Power BI today due to some regulations preventing them to publish data to the cloud. They want to replace QlickView with Power BI and if Power BI exists in Azure stack it would be possible.

                                  • Will Azure DataLake and other big data products be available in Azure Stack ?

                                    Would be really nice if we can have BigData and related services in Azure Stack. There are many Enterprise customers in Finance and Healthcare domain who are willing to go with Public Azure but keep their "Bread and Butter" data sets on premise as part of Data Lake.

                                        • Azure stack SMB version a.k.a Express installation

                                          Many of the SMBs want to utilize Azure stack to manage their infrastructure, but don't want to allocate resources for the 7+ VMs created by it, which they can use for other purposes. A SMB version of Azure stack should allow the Mux, Network controller and ACS VMs to be optional OR to be installed in the same VM. So SMBs can enable and install them or scale out, if needed later. This type of flexibility will allow deeper adoption of Hyper-V and with it Azure.
