Allow selecting disk type when creating AKS cluster
There is no way to select disk type (Standard or Premium) when creating an AKS cluster via Portal or Azure CLI, by default Node OS disk type is derived from the selected VM size.
To be more specific, I want a node Standard_B2s with Standard disk. If I create a plain VM, I can select such configuration. If I create an AKS cluster with Standard_B2s node, I can stop the node and change the disk type to Standard, but I cannot select Standard_B2s + Standard disk while creating AKS cluster.

As for vmss, itself does not support updating os disk storage account type. So, everyone needs this feature moreover.

same here, Would like to use B2s or B2ms nodes + Standard disks

Same here - would like to use B2ms for tests and demos, but the Premium SSD tier that is provisioned isn't suitable. I'd be happy with Standard HDD (or failing that, Standard SSD)
Second this. Would like to use B2s nodes + Standard disks for demos/POCs. Because there's apparently no way to override the Premium SSD defaults, costs for my demo clusters are unnecessarily high.
