Need assistance creating vm from image

Hello all

Because of Covid-19 are entire workforce is remote. We are using Azure Virtual Desktop. We spun up a windows 10 enterprise multi-session vm and we downloaded the disk so we can customize the image. The image is now being uploaded to blob storage. I'm new to this, i'm the identity and access admin, however we have a couple of admins out. How do i spin up a vm from the image thats in blob storage? The image is a vhd file. I know how to setup the network, and the region. I just need help understanding the process of creating the vm and connecting it to the uploaded vhd file

Thank you very much for any assistance

Hi @skiphofmann-5016

you need to convert the .vhd file to Managed Image (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/upload-generalized-managed). After the Image is ready, the Windows Virtual Desktop pool creation wizard allows you to select a custom image providing the image name and the resource group name (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/create-host-pools-azure-marketplace#virtual-machine-settings)
