Every time I try to save something (like a new column, deletion of a column, new table or whatever really) in Management Portal, I get the error "Error processing batch response. The response is not a valid batch response."
When you connecting to the SQL Azure database by using SSMS, and saving something to check if there is the same error in here. In addition, you can creating a new column via Management Portal from a different machine or different browsers on your personal
machine and check if the error exist.
When using SSMS I've not had any problems. I'm on an iMac running both OS X and Win 7, and I have tried the management portal on OS X: Safari, Chrome and Firefox. In Win 7 I've tried it in IE10. Same problem in all browser and in both OSes.
