Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.9 LVM

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.9 LVM

Minimal RHEL 7.9 LVM partitioned image. All security updates available at release date are included.

Minimal ready to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.9 image having the 30 GiB OS disk managed with LVM (Logical Volume Manager) and split like this:

  • /boot 1 Gib
  • / (root) rest of the free space

A 4 GiB swap file is created on the temporary resource disk as well.

The root logical volume, as well as the corresponding filesystem, is automatically extended during boot if the instance volume is bigger than the default one. The OS disk is partitioned using GPT (GUID Partition Table) instead of MBR (Master Boot Record). This allows the usage of OS disks bigger than 2 TiB in size.

Mainly used as a common base system on top of which other appliances could be built and tested, it contains just enough packages to run within Azure, bring up a SSH Server and allow users to login.

Integrated with the Azure-hosted RHUI (RedHat Update Infrastructure), that allows the installation of new RPM packages and updates without the need of a separate RHEL 7 subscription.

Azure Linux Agent, cloud-init, as well as the RHEL7 security updates available at the release date are included.

Root login is disabled and only the user account specified at launch time is allowed to connect, preferably using ssh public key authentication.

Built using RedHat7 'Minimal Install' group of packages and a single 30 GiB OS disk.

This image comes with SELinux enabled.

Accelerated Networking is supported as well.
