    The status of this item has been moved back to Under Review. We initially planned to move to VHDX support as part of our support for HyperV Gen2 VMs, but we ended up using the VHD format for Gen2 VMs as well. Some aspects of the Azure Infrastructure do not cleanly support VHDX OS or data disks. So this feature is dependent on some of these internal services being updated which is an ongoing process.

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    Years after this thread was stated this not only remains a major issue, but it got worse, not better, because now we are talking about three Microsoft accounts that can have the same email address, not two.

    As many people upgrading to Windows 10 have noticed, if they sign in to Skype with their Microsoft account, they get a different identity than the one they used to have by logging in with the Skype name (associated to the same email address). Their reaction is "My contacts have disappeared!"

    Then there is of course the "work or school" vs. "Microsoft" account. It confuses even techies, who used their work email address to get a "Microsoft" account, and have to use the same email address, but two different passwords, depending on whether they access Skype or Skype for Business (Lync)!

    Can it be more confusing than this?

    You can now use the Azure CDN to access blobs with custom domains over HTTPS. See the following article for instructions on how to do so: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-https-custom-domain-cdn. Having talked to a number of customers, we concluded that this solution addresses many scenarios where the need for HTTPS access to blobs with custom domains exists.

    Native Azure Storage support for using SSL to access blobs at custom domains is still on our backlog. We would love to hear about your scenarios where using the Azure CDN is not an acceptable solution, either by posting on this thread or sending us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.

    Azure Web (and IIS) needs full ACME integration. There should be no need to install or renew certs manually, it should all be automatic.
