Quick post to remember what actions have to be made to swap your OS disk to a VHD disk in a storage account (yes swapping from MD to UMD, I know probably I’m crazy, but for golden images it is great).
But imagine that you have a VM running a MD disk and you need to swap that OS Disk with and UMD… how can you that?
# Get the VM $vm = Get-AzVM -ResourceGroupName myResourceGroup -Name myVM # Make sure the VM is stopped\deallocated Stop-AzVM -ResourceGroupName myResourceGroup -Name $vm.Name -Force # Set the VM configuration to point to the new disk Set-AzVMOSDisk -VM $VirtualMachine -Name "osDisk.vhd" -VhdUri "https://mystorageaccount.blob.core.windows.net/disks/osdisk.vhd" # Update the VM with the new OS disk Update-AzVM -ResourceGroupName myResourceGroup -VM $vm # Start the VM Start-AzVM -Name $vm.Name -ResourceGroupName myResourceGroup
That’s all! Your VM is running with vhd disk 🙂
