This chapter describes how to launch a single instance from an image on Azure.
Deploy Neo4j Enterprise VM from the Azure Marketplace following the interactive prompts.
The most important setting to consider are
Once the deploy finishes, save the URL, username, and password.
https://[MY_Azure_IP]:7473 and log in with the username
neo4j and password
You will be prompted to change the password immediately.
Because you do not have a hostname or a valid SSL certificate configured by default, your browser will warn you that the certificate is not trusted. You can configure the certificate later.
You can use any SSH client as normal to connect to the public IP of your instance.
Use the administrative user credentials (password or SSH key) configured during the launch.
This user has
sudo access on the machine.
Inside the VM, you can check the status of the
$ sudo systemctl status neo4j neo4j.service - Neo4j Graph Database Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/neo4j.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Wed 2018-03-14 11:19:56 UTC; 15min ago Main PID: 1290 (pre-neo4j.sh) Tasks: 46 Memory: 325.7M CPU: 20.690s CGroup: /system.slice/neo4j.service ├─1290 /bin/bash /etc/neo4j/pre-neo4j.sh └─1430 /usr/bin/java -cp /var/lib/neo4j/plugins:/etc/neo4j:/usr/share/neo4j/lib/*:/var/lib/neo4j/plugins/* -server -XX:+UseG1GC
For details on internals of Azure VMs, including how to stop and start system services, configure Neo4j from the VM, etc., consult Section 3.1, “Neo4j cloud VMs”.
You can remove the infrastructure by deleting the entire resource group you created as part of the deployment. If you deployed into an existing resource group, you have to individually delete the resources that are part of the deployment.
