ADLS Gen2 and managed identities for logs, backups, and data storage

CDP requires that you create and provide an Azure Data Lake Store Gen 2 (ADLS Gen2) storage account and create a container within it for storing workload data and logs. Furthermore, in order for CDP to be able to access this container, you must create and assign managed identities.

You must provide the following:
  • Create an ADLS Gen2 storage account with hierarchical namespace enabled. The storage account must be in the same region as the environment.
  • You must create and provide multiple user-assigned managed identities that allow access to the ADLS Gen2 location.

CDP supports both standard and premium ADLS Gen2 storage accounts.
