The Azure cookbook installs and configures the Windows Azure Linux agent for your
selected distribution and provides an OHAI plugin that populates the
cloud mashes with proper data in the same way the EC2 and Rackspace plugins do.
For RPM-based distributions, you have to provide your own URL for RPM installation.
You can build your own Linux Agent RPM using the .spec file published by Microsoft
Please note that the OHAI plugin currently supports in-VM only discovery of
attributes. That means that external attributes like the VM name, Affinity Groups
and the such are not available, since they need to be discovered via API calls
to the Windows Azure endpoints. In addition, the OHAI plugin does not currently
support custom DNS configurations (that can be configured via the Virtual
Networks interface on the Windows Azure portal).
This cookbook depends on the
ohai cookbook for the
The following platforms are supported and tested under test kitchen:
- Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10
- CentOS 6
Other Debian and RHEL family distributions are assumed to work.
The cookbook converges best on Chef installations >= 10.16.2
The following attributes are available on this cookbook. Please use
n for features that you
want disabled and
y for features that you want enabled.
node['azure']['rpm']['url']- By default
nil, update it with your agent RPM URL for RPM-based virtual machines.
node['azure']['rpm']['checksum']- The SHA-256 checksum of the above RPM.
node['azure']['agent']['provisioning']- Enables the provisioning code of the Lnux agent.
node['azure']['agent']['delete_root_password']- If provisioning is enabled, disables the root password of the system.
node['azure']['agent']['regenerate_ssh_key']- Recreates the root user SSH private key in the provisioning phase.
node['azure']['agent']['ssh_key_type']- Defines the SSH key type that will be regenerated.
node['azure']['agent']['monitor_hostname']- Detects hostname changes on the VM and updates the service accordingly
node['azure']['agent']['resource_disk_format']- If enabled, formats the local ephemeral storage attached to the VM
node['azure']['agent']['resource_disk_filesystem']- The filesystem with which the local ephemeral storage will be formatted
node['azure']['agent']['resource_disk_mountpoint']- The mountpoint of the local ephemeral storage device.
node['azure']['agent']['resource_disk_swap']- Enable if you want to create a swap file on the ephemeral storage device
Recommended, since the ephemeral storage device is very fast! You'll have to have the ephemeral storage device enabled
if you want to use this feature.
node['azure']['agent']['resource_disk_swap_size']- The swap file size (in MB).
node['azure']['agent']['verbose_logs']- Enable verbose logging of the agent.
The default recipe installs the Windows Azure Linux agent and
waagent.conf file that enables various services on the virtual machine.
The OHAI plugin recipe installs the Azure OHAI plugin and reloads OHAI in order to
ohai_plugin recipe includes an OHAI plugin. It will be
automatically installed and activated, providing the following
attributes via OHAI:
node['azure']['deployment_id']- The Azure deployment ID
node['azure']['instance_type']- The name of the running instance type, i.e. Extra Large
node['azure']['public_hostname']- The public hostname by which your VM is accessible
node['azure']['public_ipv4']- The public IP by which your VM is accessible
node['azure']['local_hostname']- The actual hostname you have given to your VM
node['azure']['local_ipv4']- The internal IP address of the VM
node['azure']['location']- The region mnemonic you VM is located in, i.e. europewest
node['azure']['location_pretty']- A more pretty version of the location attribute, i.e. Europe West
node['azure']['resource_disk']['device']- The Linux device name of the resource disk attached to the VM
node['azure']['resource_disk']['mount']- True if you have activated the locally attached ephemeral resource disk
node['azure']['resource_disk']['filesystem']- The filesystem with which the resource disk was formatted with
node['azure']['resource_disk']['mountpoint']- The mountpoint of the resource disk
node['azure']['resource_disk']['swap']['enabled']- True if you have activated the swap file on the local resource disk
node['azure']['resource_disk']['size']- The size of the swap file on the local resource disk
It also populates standard
cloud attributes in the same way the EC2 and
Rackspace plugins do, such as
Include the recipe on your node or role. Modify the
attributes as required in your role to change how various
configuration is applied per the attributes section above. In general,
override attributes in the role should be used when changing
