Enable Azure Serial Console for replicated Linux VMs – Azure

If you replicate a Linux VM right away you might end up with the serial console not working. This could be especially an issue if you have your network interfaces set as static and you have to change the IP addresses.

To enable the Serial Console you have to log into your on-premise Linux VM and run the following:

systemctl start serial-getty@ttyS0.service ​

systemctl enable serial-getty@ttyS0.service

Wait until the changes will be replicated, then connect directly from the Azure Console.
