This is a really high-level overview of creating a Linux VM in Microsoft Azure.
- Use the new portal.
- Use the Resource Manager Stack (instead of the legacy Service Management Compute Stack.)
- Use a local public key when creating the VM.
gc ~\.ssh\id_rsa.pub | clip
- Remove in using SSH to the Public IP Address.
ssh username@publicip –p 22
Hooray. You’re done.
