    az vm create (windows server) - parameter linuxConfiguration is invalid

    $ az --version azure-cli 2.0.77 command-modules-nspkg 2.0.3 core 2.0.77 nspkg 3.0.4 telemetry 1.0.4 Python location '/opt/az/bin/python3' Extensions directory '/home/xxxxxxxx/.azure/cliextensions' Python (Linux) 3.6.5 (default, Nov 22 2019, 05:32:09) [GCC 7.4.0] Legal docs and information: aka.ms/AzureCliLegal Your CLI is up-to-date. >>> azcli script <<< az group create ... az storage account create ... az disk create ... az network nic create ... az vm create --name ${RESOURCENAME} \ --admin-password VerySecret \ --admin-username AdminAccount \ --attach-data-disks ${DATADISK01} \ --authentication-type password \ --boot-diagnostics-storage ${STORAGEACCOUNT} \ --enable-agent true \ --image MicrosoftSQLServer:sql2019-ws2019:sqldev:latest \ --location westeurope --nics ${NETWORKCARD} \ --os-disk-caching ReadWrite \ --os-disk-name ${OSDISKNAME} \ --size Standard_D2s_v3 \ --tags ${TAGS} >>> result of creating the VM <<< Deployment failed. Correlation ID: xxxxxx. { "error": { "code": "InvalidParameter", "message": "The value of parameter linuxConfiguration is invalid.", "target": "linuxConfiguration" } } It's clearly a Windows VM, the error seems odd in this case. Removing the parameter '--enable-agent true' will create the VM. But there is no agent installed, so no extensions can be applied. Omitting the enable-agent parameter should default to true, see documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure/vm?view=azure-cli-latest#az-vm-create

    Display IOPS and throughput on the Overview page

    It would be good to show the IOPS and throughput limit of the VM on the overview page. This would eliminate the need to lookup IOPS/throughput when doing right-sizing activities.

    Include the code in the URL

    I get this prompt when I log into the machine: To sign in, use a web browser to open the page https://microsoft.com/devicelogin and enter the code BTE2LNW3L to authenticate. Press ENTER when ready. This means I have to copy the code, and click through the url. If you made the code a part of the URL, it would save me a step and reduce friction to use this login mechanism. e.g., This message would be way more useful: To sign in, use a web browser to open the page: https://microsoft.com/devicelogin?code=BTE2LNW3L to authenticate. Press ENTER when ready.

    Azure VM reboot due to underline host failure is very frequent and this is one of biggest disadvantage of hosting servers in azure.

    Azure VM reboot due to underline host failure is very frequent and this is one of biggest disadvantage of hosting servers in azure. The solution MS gives is to keep the servers in availability set, but if i have 1000 VM's in my environment , i cant use availability set as i need to another extra 1000 VM's just for this purpose.. this doesn't make any sense. sorry to say i am very disappointed with azure on this .
