SnapCloud VM Name must be 15 characters or less

The VM name must be 15 characters or less.

 

As entered on the Azure VM create page.

Remember, the word ‘snapcloud’ uses up 9 characters.  This leaves 6 more chacters.

 

If you enter a name that is longer than 15 characters Azure will report the VM as failed.

 

Azure will allow the VM to continue booting, leaving the VM in a running state, but it will be reported as failed.

 

The ‘admin’ user is not created and the system is left in a half configured state.

If you have created a VM with more than 15 characters, you will need to clean up (stop the VM and delete the associated Resource Group) VMs that have names longer than 15 characters.
