Azure Compute sample for managing virtual machines.

  • Create a virtual machine
  • Deallocate the virtual machine
  • Generalize the virtual machine
  • Capture the virtual machine to create a generalized image
  • Create a second virtual machine using the generalized image
  • Delete the second virtual machine
  • Create a new virtual machine by attaching OS disk of deleted VM to it.
