  1. Support for V2 (ARM) infrastructure

    I cannot see V2 Azure Resource Manager based virtual machines in Azure Management Studio.
    I'm hoping there is or will be support for the new platform.

      We have started working on it. Since VM functionality is quite extensive, we will be breaking this functionality into multiple releases. In the 1st release, we’re including following features: List VMs, Delete VMs, Start/Stop/Restart/Deallocate VM, ability to RDP into VM.

      If you’re interested in trying this out before we make a general release, please drop me an email and I will work on getting you access to one of our latest internal builds.

    • Add ability to set static IP addresses

      Ability to manage static IP addresses for Virtual Machines would be very useful - it is about the only thing I have to resort to PowerShell to do.

      • Please foresee support for fixed internal IP addresses of virtual machines

        Now this is only possible through rest/powershell and i would love to have this capability in AMS (support for fixed ip address in a subnet)

        • On Starting a VM, get rid of the confirmation dialog

          When starting a VM, I don't need to be asked if I want to start the VM, I wouldn't have clicked start if I didn't want to. Possibly a configuration option ?

          • Support virtual machine scale sets

            Add support for VMSS. It could start as a simple read-only view into scale sets and what nodes exist within each. VMSS is utilized by the Service Fabric and it would be nice to see some of this visible,

              • Mount a page blob snapshot, by VM or web or worker role.

                If a page blob snapshot is mounted by a VM it will be read only and can mounted by many VM's simultaneously. Great for management of a resource that is shared by a vnet of Vm's. E.g. config file, executables etc. Please facilitate this in your excellent app.

                      • make VM endpoint editing available

                        and this in either a tabular way (or even in bulk adding). Now only one endpoint can be added (and not edited either) , maybe read them from a file or so

                        • Why isn't is possible to have more than 15 characters in the name of a virtual disk ?

                          in virtual disk management, it doesn't seem possible to have disk names with more than 15 characters. and in the azure portal, this is possible.
                          our naming conventions often force us to go above those 15, so I would hope for a chance in the future
