AzureStack Virtual Machine Console Access
I liked the Serial Console feature on the Azure Portal, but was very disappointed to find that i cannot do the same on the Azure Stack Development Kit. Is this available on Azure Stack but needs to be enabled somehow or is it planned for a future release?
This needs to be added urgently.
Unmourning the virtual hard drives, and then mounting them onto a donor machine in a chroot environment is so time consuming. If this were to repair a a mistake in fstab etc then maybe its self inflicted, however due to instability in the azure stack this is often needed to recover the vm - eg fsck rootvg following io pauses.
This would also be valuable in boot time problem investigation.
I know of no other virtualisation layer that does not offer this basic offering.
