Don't require me to "add an Azure disk" to make it usable with a VM
If I create a virtual machine using the Azure management portal, or the PowerShell module, I have to "add a VHD blob as a disk" before I can associate it with the VM as a OS disk or data disk.
Why is this extra step required? A VHD page blob is already a "disk," so why do I have to go through extra effort just to make the VHD blob able to be associated with a VM?
When creating an Azure VM, I should be able to specify a URI to a VHD blob as my OS disk, or data disk. Simple and done.
This request is associated with the legacy Classic VMs under Azure Service Management. In the current VMs in Azure Resource Manager the primary mode for disks is Managed Disks.
