Summary0013264: Azure image doesn't boot on Azure
DescriptionThe image in the archive http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/images/CentOS-7-x86_64-Azure-1704.raw.tar.gz doesn't successfully boot on the Azure Compute Platform
Steps To Reproduce1) Unpack the .raw in the.tar.gz
2) Convert it into a fixed-format VirtualPC v.1 image ('qemu-img convert -O vpc -o subformat=fixed,force_size' can help)
3) Upload the .vhd into Azure
4) (optional) set up an Azure managed-disk image (az-cli v2.0: 'az image create ...')
5) Start an unmanaged VM, or a managed-disk VM from step 4

- starting the VM from the .vhd or the image succeeds and communicates successful guest userland start to the Azure Fabric

- VM start hangs until the fabric times out
Additional InformationSo the -1704 image has the WALinuxAgent RPM installed, however the RPM doesn't seem to run 'systemctl enable waagent.service' (or equivalent 'ln -s -f /usr/lib/systemd/system/waagent.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/waagent.service')
TagsNo tags attached.

To clarify: the image does seem to make it to:
- load grub
- load kernel and initrd
- start the kernel
- run initrd
- start the real userland
- start sshd

What doesn't happen is proper signalling to the Azure Fabric that the guest is booted, which causes Azure to believe that the VM provisioning failed.
