I created a VM using the standard CentOS 7.1 image in the Azure gallery. I generalized it and captured it as a base image for future deployments.
However, once I spin up a VM using this image, the provisioning just runs for over an hour before finally displaying the status
Running (Provisioning timed out) and the new portal notifies me that it failed to create the VM.
However, I'm still able to connect to the VM and everything works. Why does it say that the provisioning has timed out? I tried shutting it down from the portal and restarting it but it had no effect. I tried checking and unchecking the option that says the agent extension is already installed. I changed the VM size. Nothing works.
