"Use the GUID" answers the question of how to determine uniqueness and side-steps the argument proposed here completely. How do you rename a VM?
This seems like a result of the ARM design that they should have at least provided an easy solution for. And not powershell, because redeploy doesn't account for all the variables associated with a VM, like extensions, backups, multiple nics, etc.
If they haven't provided this by now, they never will.Lonny Motto supported this idea ·
