Need reimage support on VirtualMachineConfiguration-based pool
Hi Batch Team, we would like to have reimage support on VirtualMachineConfiguration-based pools as well. We know that currently it is supported on CloudServiceConfiguration-based pools. This would greatly reduce the effort to maintain the nodes in the pool as we want to regularly reimage the nodes to keep them healthy without deleting the pool and recreating again. Thanks so much!

Here's a stack overflow thread on how to deal with this in the mean time
We have the same desire.
It seems it would be much more robust and 'simpler' to schedule a re-image and thus set the image/VM to a known state within the scheduler in Batch rather than trying to force it to happen from the outside.
