Hi,

I see from the https://nixos.org/nixos/download.html on the azure section that the version used is 16.03. Meanwhile, its current stable version is 17.09.

Is there any possibility to use 17.09 in azure? How can I contact the nixos azure team for any further question or to contribute in this area?

after reading this #3986, it seems that @Phreedom handle the nixos azure.

also it seems that according to the latest comment here Azure/WALinuxAgent#135, it's been deprecated.

Does building nixos images work for 17.09?

Cross-referencing issue:

This is done in the hope that an Azure-knowledgeable user could review that issue. (Sorry I'm not one.)

I was using NixOS and Azure during some months this year.

I have some scripts to automate building the image and uploading it to storage as a usable Managed Disk (including creating accounts if they don't exist, etc, etc). It's meant to be "easy". https://github.com/colemickens/nixcfg/tree/master/utils/azure/vhd

Most of the scripts is just orchestrating the build/boot of an Azure machine. Actually building the VHD is basically just a single nix-build call.

The Agent version 2.0 is deprecated. There's a newer version but I don't know enough about packaging and NixOS to really take a crack at it. The old version probably works? In my opinion there's a limited amount of usefulness of the agent under NixOS anyway.

(aka, anyone can run those two scripts and create/upload/use a new Azure VHD if they like. I'm not interested in volunteering for maintenance for Azure at this time, though)

OK, so building the image seems easy enough, and we have some of the scripts in repo. Upload to https://nixos.blob.core.windows.net/images is probably just a matter of some credentials that someone in here has. Still, all this is probably of little value unless we do at least some basic testing before upload (even automatic tests would seem sufficient).

So we might just settle for providing this information instead of the direct download we have now.
