Azure Stack HCI: Desktop Image Set as Image

Azure Stack HCI: Desktop Image Set as Image

Currently, you cannot create images directly on HCI. Therefore, we have to take an image and copy that to the custom location, This is done on the HCI side and is not part of this topic.

Warning: Depending on your network connection, synching the image from Azure to Azure Stack HCI can take a long time.

To create an image using a Desktop Image:

  1. Navigate to Desktop Images.

  2. Locate the desktop image you wish to work with.

    Note: Alternatively, you can create a new desktop image.

  3. From the action menu, select Power off & set as image or Set as image (according to the power state of this desktop image).

  4. Enter the following information:

    • Geographic distribution & Azure compute gallery: Toggle this option On.
      • Azure Compute Gallery: From the drop-down list, select the Azure Compute Gallery.

      • Azure Regions: This is automatically populated.

      • Custom (Stack HCI) Locations: From the drop-down list, select custom locations where the desktop image should be replicated.

    • See Desktop Images Set as Image for details about the other fields.

  5. Once you have entered all the desired information, select now (not scheduled) or Save & close (scheduled).

    You can see the job's progress in the logs. See Desktop Images Change Log Feature for details about the logs.

Once the Set as Image is complete, a copy of that image should appear in your VM Images within Azure portal.
