How to create copy of virtual environment

Hi,

I created an environment consisting of 4 virtual machines.
The environment contains:
1. Domain controller + active directory
2. Database server
3. Exchange server
4. Application server

Every team member needs such an environment.

Is there a configuration wizard in Azure to make it easier to create such an environment?

Is it possible to copy the environment created?
If I will create resource group for each member, can I copy the created environment into each group?
Will the domain controller work independently for each environment?
Will each environment work independently of the others?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

There is not quick copy and paste for resources in Azure. If you want to do this you can look at a few different options:

  • Create Infrastructure as Code to deploy your resources, ARM Templates, Terraform, PowerShell DSC etc. This will be quite a bit of work, but it will allow you to spin up any number of environments you want from this code

  • Use Azure Backup or Azure Site Recovery to backup the environment you create and restore it to another resource group

  • Take images of your disks and use this to create new virtual machines in another environment
