Hi, I am looking for workarounds to get a CentOS VM working on azure.
The supplier does not provide the root password, we only get an ISO that automatically installs the OS and all required software.
I have tried running it on Hyper V and then uploading the VHD to Azure. It does boot in Azure ( at least I think it does as it gets a local IP and the resource graphs shows activity), but I cannot connect to it at all (telnet or open it s web page). I have configured endpoints.
The kickstart file is accessible on the ISO, I can also attach the vhd to a Windows desktop and get full access to the VHD.
I am wanting to edit the kickstart file to accomplish the following:
Allow telnet access
Enable XRDP (mainly so that when I need to call support they can access it).
Install walinuxagent and any other pre requisites to get it to work on Azure.
I would then run the ISO on my Hyper v and upload the resulting vhd to azure.
Alternatively, install CentOS from a Microsoft image and then somehow complete the installation by copying the contents of the ISO to a VHD (in Azure).
I am no Linux expert so I am trying to decipher the contents of the kickstart file through a lot of Googling and trial and error.
