I've successfully connected my on-premises server to the cloud using Azure Connected Machine Agent (Azure Arc). My primary goal was to collect syslogs from this server, so I created a Data Collection Rule for this purpose. The Data Collection Rule attempted to install the Azure Monitor Agent, but the installation process terminated with an 'unsupported OS' error. You can find the error message in the Machine Azure Arc / Extensions section. After checking the list of supported OS versions, I discovered that Debian 12 is not currently supported. My main question is when we can expect the Azure Monitor Agent to support Debian 12?

Azure Monitor
Azure Monitor
An Azure service that is used to collect, analyze, and act on telemetry data from Azure and on-premises environments.

    Béla Lemle As of today, the current ETA for Azure Monitor Agent to support Debian 12 is Dec 2023.

    Update Feb 8 : Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we've had to adjust our timeline. Tentatively, the new release date is now set for April 2024. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.

    Update April 24: Support for Debian 12 for public clouds will be in early May 2024.

    Update May 14: The AMA agent has been tested and thus supported on Debian 12 and RHEL9 CIS L2 distribution. For more information, refer this document.
