Bginfo not updating
In upcoming blogs we’ll discuss more these and other new Cloud Services Extensions.
Here is a view of the VM with extensions: The extensions are authored, published and supported by Publishers who are registered with Microsoft.
Currently there are two Iaa S VM Extensions published by Microsoft – BGInfo and VMAccess.
BGInfo : BGInfo is an extension that writes useful server information to the desktop as a wallpaper.
Some of the common ways for installing & managing software on the VMs are 1) Preinstalling it on the disk before creating a VM 2) Logging onto the VM and manually installing it from the there.
3)Installing via remote Power Shell etc 4) Update Management and health/status reporting using a combination of tools.
