Marketplace images are available for pay-as-you-use or BYOL (EA/SPLA) licensing. Use of both on a single Azure Stack Hub instance isn't supported. During deployment, Azure Stack Hub injects a suitable version of the guest agent into the image.
Datacenter editions are available in Azure Stack Hub Marketplace for downloading; customers can bring their own server images including other editions. Windows client images aren't available in Azure Stack Hub Marketplace.
Linux distributions listed as available in Azure Stack Hub Marketplace include the necessary Windows Azure Linux Agent (WALA). If you bring your own image to Azure Stack, follow the guidelines in Add Linux images to Azure Stack.
Custom images should be built with the latest public WALA version (on the 1903 Azure Stack Hub build and above, or with the 1901/1902 hotfix), or with version 2.2.20. Versions before 2.2.20 and between 2.2.21 and 2.2.34 (inclusive) may not function properly on Azure Stack Hub. On Azure Stack Hub 1910 and above, all Azure WALA agent versions work with Azure Stack Hub.
cloud-init is supported on Azure Stack Hub 1910 and above.
