For Azure Domain users (and I do not really know what that means),
pts handling does not seem to work, at least not for mintty, where 
forkpty() fails.
Please check https://github.com/mintty/mintty/issues/563 for a discussion,
and my comment 

Also, there has been a similar report here: 

I have no idea how to establish a working startup of mintty for those users.
