  1. Export function as CSV or Excel format file on Powershell Deployment worksheet

    Once Excel Deployment Worksheet retires, we only use powershell deployment worksheet. I want to save "Subnet Summary" and "IP address Usage" information as a CSV or Excel file to review easily.
    If powershell worksheet has export function as CSV or Excel format, we can share IP Subnet information easily.

  2. Cumulative Updates to the Stack

    At this point updating an Integrated Stack is very cumbersome. It takes days to finish updating the stack. It adds to the woes that we cant skip an update to jump to the most current update level. We should consider being able to skip and install the most recent update. Stack anyways wipes and reloads the complete infra layer. It is more difficult to understand why this is not possible.

  4. Ability to Setup soem Quota by VM Model

    There is different VM Model on Azure Stack (for consistency purpose), we would like to get the ability to not just setup Quota in term of Core (global) but by VM Model Family. As example :
    Standard Ax : 16 core
    Standard Dx : 8 Core

  5. SQL IaaS Extension Patching - Use WSUS

    The SQL IaaS Extension enables auto patching of SQL workloads on Azure Stack, however there is no way to configure this to use a local source to pull those updates, so it can't work in a disconnected scenario.

    It'd be great to have the ability to configure the patch source for the SQL IaaS Extension to pull from a local WSUS server or similar, rather than having to go out to the internet.

  6. Feedback

    We ran through this process and Microsoft and the partner did a great job in estimating and validate the business case. Eventually we decided otherwise, but the process is stable and solid.

  11. Publish Azure Stack Roadmap for PaaS Services

    The ability to run the same PaaS code in both Azure Data Centers or in a disconnected Azure Stack is important design consideration. Currently, Azure Stack does not support all PaaS services and I have not located roadmap so that I know what is coming in the future. Data sovereignty and regulatory compliance use case forces my company to be able to deploy our Azure solutions in disconnected locations. Ideally, we would want to run the same code for the Azure Cloud on the Azure Stack deployments.

  12. Recover deleted storage account steps - Need Amendment

    I have the 1811 ASDK installed.

    Your steps for recovering a storage account are incorrect in the Azure Stack Operator How-to-guides>Manage Azure Stack> Manage Capacity> Manage Storage Capacity

    First: The Set Retention period steps should be in front of the recover storage account steps. As once you run the steps your deleted storage account is immediately unrecoverable.

    Second: The process should be as follows
    1: Navigate to All Services > Storage
    2: Select Storage Accounts > Search for the Account Name
    3: Select the deleted account and then select Recover

    I read the Gotcha section below your steps but i…

  13. Access Control (IAM) should list Service Principals when adding a new role

    Currently, when adding a new role under Access Control (IAM) only Users are listed for selection. It would be nice to also see Service Principals in the list of users to which a role can be assigned. Currently, you have to paste the name of the Service Principal in order to assign the role and while this works, it is not the most intuitive.

  14. Bring Snapshot capability on Azure Stack

    Azure Stack is not supporting Snapshot (Disk, Manage Disk, ...)

    Out of the box backup capability are very limited (the sole option available consist to deploy an Agent on IaaS Virtual Machine to make some hybrod backup with an Azure Backup solution on the cloud and/or a 3rd party tool, but once again limited to what is "inside" a Virtual Machine + following Agent deployment on VM + interconnection with Backup Server Solution.

    Snapshot support on Disk, Data, Storage Account will be a great feature to :
    * smooth difference with Public Cloud
    * ability to make "snapshot" manually by…

  16. Azure Stack Admin REST API - Add Tags within Public IP Addresses endpoint

    We would like to make some automation on Azure Stack and PIP @ip address within Datacenter integration by using TAGS.

    The REST API : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-ca/rest/api/azurestack/publicipaddresses/list?view=servicefabricactors-2.6.204 have tags properties available, but when we call the REST API Endpoint, the JSON response not reporting value setup within Stack :(

    In term of usage, here 2 use cases.

    use case 1 : if Public IP scenario is used for PIP and deployement, then by "default" the Public IP could be protected by Physical Firewall in front of Stack (ie Policy with low priority with Deny/Deny by default). Then, if the end user want…

  19. marketplace

    Filtered access in Marketplace:

    In a multi-tenancy environment, it would be great to control which Marketplace items each tenant can use. This could be used to tier customers or tier 2 providers based on contract level.

    Example: add Marketplace items only for designated images supported for a certain customer in a managed services contract.
