This guide will walk you through setting up the necessary environment that you will use throughout your installation to create cloud resources on Azure.

Procedure

  1. Find all available regions:

    root@rok-tools:~# az account list-locations -o table
    DisplayName               Name                 RegionalDisplayName
    ------------------------  -------------------  -------------------------------------
    East US                   eastus               (US) East US
    East US 2                 eastus2              (US) East US 2

    West US 3                 westus3              (US) West US 3
    ...
    
  2. Specify the desired region you will use to create all necessary resources. The remaining of the guide assumes that you will be using this location when creating resources via the Azure portal. The corresponding regional display name is (US) East US. We will refer to it as your desired region.

    root@rok-tools:~# export AZURE_DEFAULTS_LOCATION=eastus
    
  3. Find your current active subscription. The remaining of the guide assumes that you will be using this subscription when you create resources via the Azure portal. We will refer to it as your desired subscription.

    root@rok-tools:~# az account show --query name -o tsv
    Azure subscription
