Deploy and use images

What is the relationship between the password/user name that you configured when you deployed the relevant image for the Linux system on the Azure Market platform, and the root user for the virtual machine (VM)?Can you change the root user password?

The password/user name that you configured when you deployed the image on the Azure Marketplace platform has root permissions by default. To change the password for the root user, you must sign in to the system and use the ‘sudo’ command to change the root password.

Why won’t the browser open the page when I enter the domain name after the VM has been deployed?

Possible reasons for this issue are:

  1. The corresponding port numbers were not configured when the image was created, or there were other image creation issues.
  2. Because the system does not necessarily reinitialize immediately after deployment, you might need to wait for a few minutes.
  3. You can sign in to the VM and check to see whether the corresponding services have been enabled.

Are all images on the Azure Marketplace free?

Azure Marketplace uses a bring-your-own-license (BYOL) model, so there are both free images and paid images on Azure Marketplace.The charges and prices are all determined by the service provider, and you can find out about them from the service provider’s instructions. You can also contact the service provider by phone or email and then sign a purchase agreement offline.

Will the VM’s intranet and public IP addresses change over time after the image or ARM template has been deployed?

Public IPs are divided into static and dynamic IP addresses. Static IP addresses do not change (and must be paid for separately), while dynamic IP addresses might change over time.Intranet IP addresses do not change.

I used the Azure CLI to create an Azure Virtual Network and subnet. Why can’t I see them in the Azure classic portal?

You can see the virtual network and subnet in the Azure portal, and the virtual network and subnet must be included in the resource group.Virtual networks and subnets that are created in the Azure portal cannot be seen in the Classic interface, cannot be seen in the classic portal interface, but you can see virtual networks and subnets that were created in the classic portal in the Azure portal.This is because the Azure portal includes the concept of resource groups, while the classic portal does not.
