I have a Linux VM in Azure. The OS shows as Windows and not Linux. I noticed this when trying to reset password. This didn't work, then I noticed the SSH key box was missing. So my two concerns are now, how do I reset the password and am I being charged for a Windows license as part of the subscription, as Linux VMs are cheaper.
Hey. I had an existing Linux VM on Azure in a different part of the world. I had to remove the VM and move the VHD, then create a new VM in PowerShell. One of the PowerShell switches allows you to specify the type (Windows/Linux). The VM created, boot perfectly fine - it's just azure 'thinks' it's a windows machine (even though I chose Linux)
