Transfer VHD as part of ARM Template
Would it be possible to add the ability to transfer a VHD to the uploads folder as part of the ARM template. Ie. Specify a URI to a VHD in another storage account to transfer over.
Otherwise I nee to deploy 1 ARM template to create the lab, execute some powershell to transfer a VHD, then deploy another ARM template to create a custom image from the uploaded VHD.
Thanks for the feedback, Jacob! We are planning to simplify your work to create custom images from an external VHD, and we are in progress to come up with a solution for that. One of the ideas is to provide a PowerShell scripts that will copy the VHD and deploy an ARM template coming with it all at once, so the only thing you need to do is to run the PowerShell by passing some parameter values (e.g. URI to the VHD, etc.). Does it work with you? For your particular request, we will investigate and see how ARM template in general supports this kind of action. Thanks!
Are tehre any updates on this requirement ? I have to copy the azure vhd to another account/subscription for deploying a Virtual machine there.
Hello, I'm curious if there's any update on this?
As long as you can do it with one ARM template and not two. Currently I use a Powershell script to deploy the lab using an ARM template, transfer the vhd from another blob storage account, and then use a second ARM template to deploy the custom image. It would be nice to do it all in one 'deployment' if that makes sense.
