Upload VHD to Azure

Post date: May 05, 2016 8:35:17 PM

These are the only two resources you need to use:

1) https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-windows-classic-createupload-vhd/

2) https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/dn495173.aspx

Add-AzureVhd [-Destination] <Uri> [-LocalFilePath] <FileInfo> [[-NumberOfUploaderThreads] <Int32> ] [[-BaseImageUriToPatch] <Uri> ] [[-OverWrite]] [ <CommonParameters>]

Add-AzureVhd -Destination https://servername.blob.core.windows.net/container/servername.vhd -LocalFilePath C:\Virtual\servername\servername.vhd

Note, there is an optional step listed in the azure.microsoft tutorial, its not optional, do it.

Note: I find that the Location: northcentralus host is the fastest from the Seattle area for some reason.
