Linux Diagnostics Extension for BIG-IP VM in Azure
Hi there! For anyone that's familiar with deploying BIG-IPs out of the marketplace in Azure, have you run into any errors with the Linux Diagnostics Extension? I have a customer that is doing such a deployment and they received an error related to that extension when deploying the VM. Everything appears to have deployed successfully, however there are still questions around why that error was thrown.
I believe the extension is tied to enabling boot diagnostics in the configuration options. I haven't come across anything so far that says what may be causing the issue or if there are any compatability issues. Any thoughts or information anyone has on this would be great to hear. 🙂
Edit: Also, Microsoft is suggesting installing the Azure CLI as a prerequisite, which is something that I've never heard of doing before. So there's that, too.
