DS-series VMs are capable of using Premium disks for either OS or Data (or both). But the performance will ultimately depend on which type of disk you use. If you use a standard disk, it will perform just like a D-series. In your case, since you created your OS disk as a standard storage VHD, it will have all the performance characteristics of standard ...

The VM has it's private addresses translated to a publicly routable IP address at the network boundary - this is called network address translation. when you assign a public IP to an instance in the cloud what you are really doing is setting up a NAT rule. Inside the VM you continue to work and configure software as you would on a private network, so if your ...

I have found a solution... I found that the credentials added to cmdkey had been persisted, through the Azure Power Off, and it was only the Mapped Network Drive that was disappearing. Instead of insisting on my Service to connect to the Azure FileShare by a Mapped Network Drive Letter, I have changed the code to access the fileshare by its UNC address ...

The quickest way to do this is as follows. 1) Turn off the current VM (Call this VM1) 2) Spin Up a new VM (Call this VM2) and attach the OS disk from VM1 as a data disk. See this question for reference. 3) Boot VM2 and open registry 4) Load the registry hive from the attached OS disk of VM1. See this question for reference 5) Disable the firewall ...

The N series are still in beta. There was an announcement at AzureCon and Build 2016: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/videos/azurecon-2015-applications-that-scale-using-gpu-compute/ https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/documentation/videos/build-2016-introduction-to-nvidia-gpus-in-azure/

the number of data disks you can add to an ARM VM is dependent on its family and size, so a A2 VM can have 4 data disks but an A3 VM can have up to 8 data disks. at the top end some of the D and G family VMs can have up to 32 data disks. if you use the ARM portal http://Portal.Azure.com to create a virtual machine you can see all the details of the VM ...

Well there is still no option in the GUI, but Samir Farhat has written a powershell script which can be used to change the AS of existing VM in ARM mode. AFAIK, this feature may be addressed by the end of this year. It's a big challenge for the MS team to allow such operation. Changing the availability Set requires a review of the VM mobility ...

It sounds like autoscale is shutting down your VM. Autoscale will look at the current CPU Usage and shutdown one of the VMs if it is not required. in this case it is choosing to shutdown a VM you need. If you need both VMs running then you can disable Auto-scale, this will keep your VMs running. Or you can try to adjust the autoscale settings to try and keep ...

No, RemoteApp is tied to a specific region and won't automatically fail over. However, if this is a concern there is nothing to stop you replicating your RemoteApp image to a second region ready to be used in the event of a disaster. The only cost for this would be the storage, which would be small, and you only create the RemoteApp instance and add users ...

I finally figured out the issue, hope this saves somebody else a few hours. The problem turned out to be a combination of my load balancer Probe settings and the IIS bindings for my websites. In IIS on the VMs I have 2 websites configured. Since the 2 websites share 1 public IP, I'm using a Host Name when setting up the bindings in IIS. So basically my ...

You need to clear your browser cache and cookies. Once cleared the option to choose Personal or Work account will appear again when you enter your email address. A good way around this is to use two different browsers, one for Azure Personal account and a different one for Azure Work account. That way you dont have to keep clearing your cookies.

This isn't really an Azure question, its a "how do I do SQL clustering question". You can't just share a SQL database between two VM's and it magically work, you would need to setup your VM's in a cluster to share the SQL workload between them. Clustering in Azure is slightly different than on premises as you can't use shared disk storage for clustering ...

Your Classic VMs and ARM VM's can't share the same VNET, they need v1 and v2 VNETs respectively. You could join the two VNETs togther using a VNET to VNET connection, but this document states: A cloud service or a load balancing endpoint CANNOT span across virtual networks, even if they are connected together. This goes for the ARM load balancer as ...

In order to be in an same availability set the VMs need to be in the same region.

If you did not that already, try to place your DB and WebSite in the same region. AlwaysOn is the good way to do, but it looks like the problem is more sophisticated and there should be a more troubleshooting. As Sam suggested, the mode is important as well because of various limits and throttling, but if you say that the load is low, it should not be the ...

Just come across the answer for this. You want the source port to be set to * and the destination port to be set to the correct port number. Once this is done all will work correctly.

When you're logged in locally to the Linux VM (i.e. not via SSH), you can display the fingerprint of the SSH host key: $ ssh-keygen -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key.pub -l 256 MD5:68:b3:29:da:98:93:e3:40:99:c7:d8:ad:5c:b9:c9:40 no comment (ECDSA) This fingerprint should match the characters you were presented when you tried to login via SSH: $ ssh VM The ...

The obvious way is to run a login script (either GPO or local policy) to map the drive. Obviously the downside to this is that your storage credentials will be stored in plain text in the login script, you can do some encryption with PowerShell or similar but this still doesn't stop someone walking away with the login script and using it elsewhere. Which I ...

I think this is a restriction of the free Azure account - try changing your availability zone to us north. The location constraint is not valid
