Install NGINX on a Linux VM in Deployment with Cloud Init

Your manager asks if you can install NGINX on all new Linux VMs with as little manual intervention as possible. Instead of installing NGINX on each VM manually, you can use `cloud-init` to install NGINX during the deployment of a Linux VM.

    Deploy a Linux VM with NGINX Installed

    From the Azure portal, deploy a Linux VM using the Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS image and the Standard_B2ms. The VM should be deployed with a cloud-init script that will update the OS and install NGINX on launch. Ensure that port 22 is accessible on the VM and that the authentication type is Password.

  2. Challenge

    Test the VM

    Using Cloud Shell, log into the newly created VM and verify that NGINX was successfully installed and is active on the server.
