Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) – Image Management : How to manage and deploy custom images (including versioning) with the Azure Shared Image Gallery (SIG)

In this #WVD blog Robin Hobo (@robinhobo) will show you step-by-step how to create an image, deploy a #WindowsVirtualDesktop Host pool with it, and update it with a new image version afterwards, using the #Azure Shared Image Gallery.

A great benefit of the Azure Image Gallery is that you can deploy your image to different Regions within Azure at the same time. This makes a Windows Virtual Desktop deployment over more then one region even easier. In this blog I will deploy an image to two Regions to show you how that works.

This blog is divided into the following steps:

  1. Deploy a Virtual Machine for creating and customizing the image
  2. Make a disk Snapshot
  3. Creating a Virtual Machine Capture
  4. Create a Shared Image Gallery
  5. Add an image to the Shared Image Gallery
  6. Deploy a Windows Virtual Desktop Host pool with the custom image
  7. Update the custom image (create Disk, new VM, Snapshot and VM Capture)
  8. Add a version to the image in the Shared Image Gallery
  9. Update the Windows Virtual Desktop Host pool with the new image
