#Azure and #MSOMS notable updates week 22/17


Azure AD Application Proxy gets updates:

  • it now just uses ports 80 and 443
  • you can restrict outbound traffic by DNS names (*.msappproxy.net and *.servicebus.windows.net)

and we can tune timeout for backend applications up to 180 seconds.

Azure SQL Database standard elastic pools can now deliver up to 3000 eDTU. The feature is still in preview.

There’s hope for CSP partners that are struggling to better delegate admin rights on customer subscriptions.

  • The “Template deployment” marketplace item is now visible and let’s you deploy ARM templates
  • You can run the Azure Shell in delegated mode. To do that you must first register in the azure portal the Microsoft.Storage provider


We finally have the new Azure Backup Server bits, basically they’re now aligned with DPM 2016 in terms of features set (tape management excluded). So we now have vCenter/ESXi support, modern storage, SQL/SHP/WS 2016 support and so on. There are few interesting blog posts if you’re interested in more information:

The linux agent now ingest custom log using “sudo_tail”, this fixes a nasty issue when the omsagent user doesn’t have the proper permissions on the logs to be ingested.

The long waited customer driven DR solution between Azure datacenters is now in public preview.

System Center
