I just start learning Azure and I wonder if the following would work:
Is it possible to upload a boot image with iPXE boot and install Linux via our own repository install server outside of Azure?
Of course assuming all network connections (i.e Azure network -> Internet/VPN -> own install server:443) are set up correctly.
Thanks and regards
Not something I have done but here an option of creating a custom VM image, ideally, from Linux on Azure Endorsed Distributions when possible and then uploading into Azure. Not sure if that was what you were after.
Lots of details here:
These images are taken from Hyper-V, where you could PXE Boot possible to create the image I suppose. Worth looking into anyway. The other thing that occurred to me was Azure Stack.
