Installing the LAD extension doesn't work on Data Science Ubuntu 18.04 image RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've noticed the LAD extension (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/extensions/diagnostics-linux) doesn't install on the Data Science Ubuntu 18.04 image, and after asking several teams (LAD team, SCX team) I was told to contact the image team for further help.

    It seems that conda interferes with the scx installation during LAD extension deployment, when calling scx.postinst it fails with `Syntax error: "(" unexpected.` More details in this github issue (https://github.com/microsoft/SCXcore/issues/164)

    This can be repro'd by creating a Data Science Ubuntu 18.04 image and following the instructions (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/extensions/diagnostics-linux#powershell-sample) on deploying the LAD extension. (This doesn't repro on Data Science Ubuntu 16.04, or on the Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS image).
