Serial Console for Azure Government Cloud is coming
Published date: 04 November, 2019
Azure Serial Console is coming to Government Cloud, with the same functionality and same GUI, along with easy-to-connect Azure portal integration for you to troubleshoot virtual machines (VMs) more easily via the Azure portal when VM diagnostics is enabled.
The Serial Console in the Azure portal provides access to a text-based console for virtual machines (VMs) and virtual machine scale set instances running either Linux or Windows. This serial connection connects to the ttyS0 or COM1 serial port of the VM or virtual machine scale set instance, providing access independent of the network or operating system state. The serial console can only be accessed by using the Azure portal and is only allowed for users who have an access role of contributor or higher to the VM or virtual machine scale set.
