AlmaLinux 9 Minimal

AlmaLinux 9 Minimal

Minimal ready to use AlmaLinux 9 image. All security updates available at release date are included.

This is a minimal ready to use AlmaLinux 9 image, 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 an SSH Server and allow users to login.

Azure Linux Agent, cloud-init, as well as all AlmaLinux 9 security updates available at the image 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.

This image is built using Alma Linux 9 'Minimal Install' group of packages and a single 30 GiB OS disk. Both the root partition and the corresponding filesystem are automatically extended during boot if the OS disk size is bigger than the default one.

This image comes with SELinux enabled.

Accelerated Networking is supported as well.
