Managing Azure VM Images
1 h 15 m
Lab Overview
In this lab, you will manage VM Image or the OS Disk of both Windows and Linux. Generally, you may use images available in the marketplace but sometimes the marketplace may not fulfill the organization requirements. In this case, you may have to use own custom VHD which includes uploading VHD from on-premises to cloud or downloading from cloud to on-premises. When an organization wants VM having their LOB (Line of Business Application) installed, you as an Azure Admin need to play with images. It will be more time saving and effective to create images as per the organization needs and use the same image on both cloud and on-premises rather than installing LOB and other configuration in each VM individually. It will give a holistic view of VMs in both on-premises and cloud environment.Note: This lab creates several virtual machines at start time and will take approximately 15 minutes before it is ready.
