Azure Cloud silently released some new features to help everyday Azure Cloud Administrators with troubleshooting the "no boot/no ssh" scenario.
The efforts into this direction started about 2 years ago with the public release of the "Serial Console" feature, which finally allowed customers to reach out to their VMs from the Azure Portal, without the need of an SSH connection.
Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer is a widely used tool by all Azure cloud administrators. However, with the increasing number of Linux VMs in the Azure Cloud, having a working version of Azure Storage Explorer on a Linux machine became a necessity, and Microsoft did took the 1st steps into providing one.
Today I decided to play around with the Google two factor authentication method on one of my Linux VMs hosted in Azure.
What this means?
Well, my idea was to have a VM that I ususaly login with my SSH key automatically, to prompt me for a code that changes every 30 seconds.
Google Authenticator offers just that.
If you have multiple PID files for the same process ( e.g. 1_process_name.pid, 2_process_name.pid, ecc. ) you may have a situation like the one described above.
So, how do you delete the PID files for the processes that are no longer running, without interfering with the running processes?
