Refresh Desktop Images from the Azure Marketplace

Refresh Desktop Images from the Azure Marketplace

Nerdio Manager allows you to refresh desktop images from the Microsoft published and managed images in the Azure marketplace.

This automated image refresh operation ensures that you always have a pristine image from Microsoft with all the latest OS patches applied. The refreshed image is automatically deployed to all session hosts that use it.

To refresh a desktop image from the Azure Marketplace:

  1. Navigate to Desktop Images.

  2. Locate the image you want to refresh.

  3. Select the Power off & Set as image.

  4. In the Schedule section, enable the scheduling function.

  5. Enable Refresh image from Azure Marketplace.

  6. Enter the following information:

    • Marketplace Image: From the drop-down list, select an image.

    • Join to AD: Select this option and then from the drop-down list, select an Entra Domain Services or an AD profile to directly join the image.

      For example, you can select a Windows 10 (2004) EVD _ Office ProPlus -Gen2 (multi-session) image and join it to the nerdio.int (default) AD. You can schedule to refresh this image, weekly, starting 11/20/2021 at 12:00 every Saturday

      You can run scripted actions (for example, installing Microsoft Teams, Zoom client, etc.) along with the image refresh.

  7. Select Run now (not scheduled) or Save & close (scheduled).
