Following up on my last post – up until a couple of months ago, our production MunkiReport server was running Windows Server 2012 R2. Yep, MunkiReport was running in IIS, and MySQL was installed in the same VM. The server was about 8 years old, and while it had served us well, it was time to migrate to something more modern.
As we’re pushing to move more stuff into Azure, and containers are the future of these types of deployments, I spent a bunch of time figuring out how to get MunkiReport running as a Docker container in Azure. Even better: I automated it, so you can do it, too!
We’ve had this running in production for a couple of months now, and it’s averaged out to about $4.60/day for ~700 clients.
Due to some upcoming life changes, I’m not sure how much further development the script will receive from me. I intend to add some documentation, but there are definitely improvements that could be made (such as migrating to an ARM/BICEP template, or making some portions of the script optional). Please check out the script and let me know what you think!
