In order for a data disk to show up in the UI, the following settings need to be configured in the Virtual Machine Manager library:

  • The hard disk must have a family name set.

  • The release field needs to be set in the format x.x.x.x (e.g. 1.0.0.0).

  • The Operating system: field needs to be set to None.

  • The Virtualization platform: field should be set to Unknown.

  • The VHD needs to be exposed to the cloud that the WAP plan is based in.
