Windows Azure Pack–Gallery Item VM Role–References for Creation, Configuration, and Automation
Hello Readers and Viewers!
By now, you have seen a number of posts on this blog assisting you through portions of what I will refer to as the “VM Role Lifecycle”.
In fact, we have…
- …a blog series about VM Role Creation;
- …posts about VM Role Import and Configuration;
- and as of last week, a blog series on VM Role Automation (for Deployment).
To me, this looks like an entire lifecycle. Well, barring the “Deprovision” part, but that would likely either be manual, or just fall under “Automation” now, wouldn’t it?
In the end, I just wanted to put all the reference information in one post, so it is easy to lookup, find, and link to as necessary.
