Azure Lab Services—Ability to reset passwords and support for Ubuntu Images has been added

Posted on Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Azure Lab Services now supports the ability to reset passwords. This is a configurable option during lab creation where the lab owner can enable or disable the "Use same password for all virtual machines" setting.   

If the setting is disabled (it’s enabled by default), students will have the ability to set a password during their first login to the virtual machine (VM) and can also reset password afterward. Lab owners can reset the password to the template machine at any time.   

Support for Ubuntu images is also now available. Previously, Ubuntu VMs required students to set a password on the first sign in and Azure Lab Services didn’t have support for that. Now, it’s possible to create labs with Ubuntu images.
