  4. Do not abandon WSUS – for the sake of Azure, if nothing else

    The more money I save on bandwidth, the more I have to buy Azure services.

    WSUS is a feature of Windows Server that helps us save Internet bandwidth immensely. It guarantees that I can download an update once and install it on 4500+ devices, especially those that do not have (or aren't allowed to have) an Internet connection. Its counterpart, Delivery Optimization, does not guarantee such a thing and does not offer such a good saving.

    It doesn't take a genius to see that Microsoft has almost nearly retired WSUS since it has become a cloud company. Delivery Optimization and…

  7. windows server seems great

    but very complicated for elderly and not english speaking persons to understand and realize. Would be a very good idea, mobilizing the elder generation to enhance their internet skills with multilingual and knowledgeable supports. I guess that RDS gives lot of opportunities to create a big future (for all of us)

  9. PowerShell method of provisioning the Azure Automation RunAs account fails.

    When I attempt to automate the provisioning of the Azure Automation Run As account using the attached script, the RunAs Certificate and RunAs Connection assets are created successfully, however the RunAs account does not import the thumbprint, name and expiration dates for the RunAs certificate in it's properties. As a workaround, I have to manually create the RunAs account in the portal. This is ok as a manual process, but I was hoping to automate the deployment of a lab or dev/test environment, then immediately provision a run as account for the automation account so that I can schedule startup…

  10. Need more document about building RDS env with fixed IP

    When I deploy my RDS env, the RDS GW has a fixed public IP but I want my session host to share the same outgoing public IP. This is because some Azure Service such as Azure MySQL only whitelist certain IP.

    This is a prevalent requirement, I had been surprised that the AZ std RDS env build docs did not address this RDS.

    I am trying an Azure Loadbalancer to achieve this:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/configure-load-balancer-outbound-cli
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/load-balancer-outbound-rules-overview

    Hope you can put this in the documentation at least put in the "Note" part.

  11. This is too Complex: "Deploy Windows Server Hybrid Cloud Print with Pre-Authentication"

    I'd like to join all of my on-premise machines to Azure AD (and remove them from the local domain). However, it is procedures such as this one that are incredibly complex to set up. I'd like to recommend that Azure engineers refine and simplify such a process as this.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/hybrid-cloud-print/hybrid-cloud-print-deploy

    The easier you make doing a task such as this one, the quicker folks like me will migrate users over to Azure. It should not be so difficult to implement something so basic such as accessing an on-premise printer (that's joined to a local domain) from AAD joined machine.

  13. please update this page to include migrating from Windows Server 2016 to 2019 please.

    A new separate page for those of us migrating from Windows Server 2016 to Windows Server 2019 using AZURE. I have not found any helpful information to perform this task.

  17. Support Azure AD domain join for Windows Server 2016

    Microsoft should strongly consider implementing support for Azure AD join in future builds of Windows Server 2016. I how a couple of customers that have nearly finished the transition to all cloud and is left with a couple of servers due to legacy software. They are currently left with the option to deploy Azure AD Domain Services for supporting a couple (2-5) servers.

  18. Don't force the use of a hypervisor video adapter when you have an actual GPU or vGPU attached.

    We pay $2k a month for an NVIDIA vGPU instance only to have DX Diag force us to a Microsoft Basic Display adapter.

    End this.

  19. Allow Windows Server to mount BLOB as a disk

    Partners like SoftNAS and Nasuni allow you to connect to Azure BLOB storage and share it as a disk. This allows for massive scalability. Unfortunately, these are very expensive solutions when we are just looking for a simple, massively scalable Windows File Server. Please add the ability to mount BLOB (thin provisioned) to a Windows Server VM in Azure and share that capacity. (Either that or enhance Azure Files to more than 5TB and add NTFS permissions).
