Error in installing Microsoft Antimalware extension for azure classic VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    I am trying to enable Microsoft Anti malware extension on one our Azure VM (classic). We are using the below powershell command to enable it.

    Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "SRVS" -Name "SRV1" | Set-AzureVMMicrosoftAntimalwareExtension -AntimalwareConfigFile "C:\Data\MicroSoftAntiMalware.json" | Update-AzureVM

    The extension stuck at installing status. When we check the log for extension under C:\Packages\Plugins\Microsoft.Azure.Security.IaaSAntimalware\1.5.5.9 . It says "

    - Available Memory : 1840 MB , Current CPU : 0%
    - Getting InvalidOperationException when trying to find is MSMPSvc running, we will move on to check if WinDefend is running 8/8/2019 11:20:38 AM

    We have checked on the error code 2147205073 and meaning on it is "The websso issuer is not supported". We have been searching on the forums on the internet however no possible solutions is mentioned anywhere. Could you please help us on this.

  • Hi,

    please try the below PowerShell 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/servicemanagement/azure/set-azureserviceantimalwareextension?view=azuresmps-4.0.0

    also the Microsoft Antimalware for Windows requires that the target virtual machine is connected to the internet to receive regular engine and signature updates.
