Support for the Azure Boot Diagnostics Extension

The Azure Boot Diagnostics extension may not function properly with the Netgate® pfSense® software for Azure appliance.

Problems were reported with this functionality during certification testing of the appliance. Subsequent testing indicated that it appeared to work under some circumstances. You are free to attempt to enable boot diagnostics, but it is not officially supported.

As such, please do not initiate support calls or tickets if you find that the Boot Diagnostics extension is not functioning properly with your Netgate pfSense for Azure VM. This is a known limitation and no remedy is available from Azure’s customer support team or Netgate’s.
