We use and love the Azure Tentacle Extension… We use it with scale sets and auto deploy constantly.
I am in the process of migrating more standalone machines to scale sets but hit a bit of a road block. How can I use the azure tentacle extension to configure multiple instances on a machine? We have a scenario where one machine runs two environments but different roles on the each of the instances.
So for example:
Instance 1 (same machine):
Environment Chris has roles App-A, App-B, App-C
Instance 2 (same machine):
Environment Ben has App-C only
Instance 3 (on a completely different machine)
Environmental Ben has App-A, App-B
I tried duplicating the Octopus Extension via our ARM template but it conflicts on the extension name.
I am guessing if it’s not possible I could be creative and have one instance in both environments + different roles for each environment + different deployment steps for each role and environment but that feels a bit hacky… Alternatively use: https://octopus.com/docs/installation/installing-tentacles/automating-tentacle-installation and write a deployment step to add the second instance.
