Is the CentOS 7 installation/image the same across your bare-metal hosts and the one on azure? AFAIK there is still no official CentOS 7 image provided by the CentOS Project on the azure marketplace. Instead it's created by a third party [1]. So there may be differences that could cause issues. On your azure host, check the repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d/. If the mirrorlist/basurl points to openlogic or roguewave than it's a third-party image. IIRC Amazon and GCP have official CentOS 7 images provided by the CentOS Project. Maybe try one of those to see if the issue persists? Alternatively create your own CentOS 7 VM from the official CentOS 7 repositories using kickstart and try that on azure.

Best, Patrick
