make installation media available (mount an .iso) for those of us that use Azure VMs
Occasionally we need access to the source media to access scripts or files on our VMs. I recently ran into this issue while following this MSDN article ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn486787.aspx ) while setting up an ADFS farm. There is literally no way forward without the installation media.
Thanks! This is something we are considering as we add enhancements to auto-configuration. You may be able to do this using Azure Files, today.

1. try AzCopy from an an on-prem server
2. use azure file sync and include a vm in azure in the sync group

I know this is an old thread, Has any progress been made?
I need to add the .NET 3.5 Feature. (And related ASP.NET features) would be so much easier if I could specify a SOURCE: in my ARM + DSC scripts rather than downloading an entire ISO image just to map it for this one feature.
Meanwhile, how can I install Office on my Azure VM?
