DSC / Custom Scripts

Regular Contributor

Hello,
where do I put DSC and where do I put Custom Scripts? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

 

I would like to do the initial configuration of a Linux machine (install Docker,..)

 

Regards Stefan

If you have workloads you want to continuously make changes to, or control config, settings through code then DSC through Azure Automation is definitely the way to go.

If you simply want to do a once off-script, to install docker and that's it, then put the script in an Azure Storage account and you can call it from an ARM template etc during the VM build.
