Deploying Clusters with Custom Images
Deploying custom images is supported by updating instance template fields:
- Set the Image field to be the Resource Id for the custom image. The Resource Id is on the Custom Image’s Overview
pane and is in the format (replace italicized words with your actual values):
- Set the Use Custom Managed VM Image field to Yes. The custom image option is only supported with Managed Disks.
- Set the Custom VM Image purchase plan field in this format (replace italicized words with your actual values):
/publisher/value/product/value/name/valueIf there’s no plan leave the field blank.
- If the custom image has a data disk attached, then set dataDiskCount to 0. If you just comment it out, it will default to 5.
