Attach an existing disk not created in Lab
I copied VHD of a Data disk from a nother Lab in a different Locale (Azure Region) into the datadisks container, but it was not available as an existing disk I could attach to my Lab VM. I am attempting to clone a lab in East US to a Lab in West US. I can copy the images of the VM from one lab to another across regions, but right now I can't see how to clone the additional data drives from one lab to another.
Thanks for the feedback! Attaching an existing disk not created in the Labs is doable today through ARM templates. However, we understand the experience is not ideal and plan to get it better. I don’t have an ETA though, given it needs to be prioritized with all the other items in the backlog. If anyone wants to see this feature sooner, please don’t hesitate to add your vote. Thanks!

I cannot seem to find the method of using an ARM template to attach an existing disk or vhd. Can you please share a sample or link to a template?

Had a real horror coming from ASM to ARM and trying to use DevTest Labs to build out the lab. Custom VHDs were a nightmare to the lay-person.
Glad to hear it's planned :-)
