UNMS on Azure

Below are the bare minimum steps to install Ubiquiti’s Network Management System on a Docker container on Azure Ubuntu VM. After adding my ER-X-SFP v 1.9.7 to UNMS, I can now see it on the UNMS console.
  1. Create new VM "Docker on Ubuntu Server"
  2. For VM Size, use B1ms
  3. Connect to VM using Putty
    1. Username and pwd are the ones you typed in when creating the VM
  4. Update Ubuntu to 16.04.1 (or newer)
  5. $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

  6. To check upgrade succeeded, run
  7. $ lsb_release -a
  8. According to UNMS installation steps at run commands
  9. $ curl -fsSL > /tmp/ && sudo bash /tmp/
  10. Add HTTP endpoint to Azure VM, optionally allowing it only from your IP address
  11. Connect to UNMS using browser at
  12. In UNMS Settings, I changed the “Ping Address” to as suggested at

Optional modifications

In addition I changed UNMS Inform port using the following command, and added endpoint to Azure to allow it from my home IP.
$ sudo bash /tmp/ --ws-port 8444
I also added CNAME to my DNS provider to access UNMS using my my own domain name. In UNMS settings at Settings –> UNMS I added this custom domain name to “UNMS Hostname/IP”.
