  1. Make it work

    I was trying learning platform and was stuck on a page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/modules/welcome-to-azure/4-create-a-vm?pivots=windows-cloud where I was supposed to create VM. The right side where I was supposed to type anything is not working. The only thing that works is restart and feedback buttons.

  5. Cloud Shell times out to fast.

    Wait for VM to spin up and read on, and it's often timed out.

  9. Preconfigure Storage Account used by Azure Cloud Shell for all users

    Everytime a different user wants to use Azure Cloud Shell in the same Azure subscription, the prompt suggests to create a new Storage Account.

    For a subscription that follows a strict naming convention, this is very unfortunate. Ideally, an administrator should be able to preconfigure Azure Cloud Shell to use the same Storage Account everytime anyone with access to that subscription wants to use Azure Cloud Shell.

  11. copy-paste for "code" editor doesn't work.

    I tried to complete the quick hands-on intro for Azure Key Vault following the instructions but it is impossible to paste the examples of the code via shell. I can paste the examples to my local notepad but it is impossible to paste it thru the shell to editor of the sandbox.

  15. Whats this about ?

    Requesting a Cloud Shell.Failed to provision a Cloud Shell: {"code":"TenantActiveUserQuotaReached","message":"Tenant '604c1504-c6a3-4080-81aa-b33091104187' has '305' active users in location 'westus', which exceeds the active userquota."}

    This is first time use of this training service - no idea what is going on so this message is meaningless to me. PS I'm in the UK not West US.

  17. Increase resources for training

    The system is painfully slow and the shell often non-responsive. In addition following some of the instructions leads to errors such as
    "The Resource 'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/myVM' under resource group '1d6a2245-fcee-4653-b329-9e282fd39ede' was not found" which could be a symptom of not enough capacity.

  19. Don't automatically terminate the shell without warning

    Deploying complex ARM templates, or jobs that encounter error conditions after timeout can take longer than 20 minutes. Please extend the shell timeout and provide a warning message prior to termination that will allow you to keep the session active. It's incredibly frustrating to be running a job that prevents interaction with the shell, then part way through the job, the session terminates without any warning. All history of the job is lost and there is no log stored anywhere, so you can't track down the error.

  20. Run Docker containers with Azure Container Instances

    The commands do not work in the Sandbox. I keep getting errors. I hope the production Azure works better than the tutorial!
