Join Bhargav Shukla for an in-depth discussion in this video Deploy a virtual machine using Azure Marketplace, part of Microsoft Azure Stack First Look.
- [Instructor] Now let me show you how you can deploy services using Azure Stack Marketplace items. In this demo I will deploy a Windows Server 2016 VM in Azure Stack. I will start by logging in to Azure Stack Admin Portal. Once logged in, I will navigate to Marketplace. This is the local Azure Stack Marketplace and has few options populated during the installation.
However, it does not contain a Windows Server 2016 image that I can deploy. I have an option to build a custom Windows Server 2016 image from ISO file and add it to the marketplace. This will allow me to offer the image for deployments to my tenant subscriptions as well. The other option I have is to add offerings from Azure Marketplace. This not only saves me time, but also allows me to use built in offerings consistent with Azure, including partner offerings.
Let me show you how. I will start with navigating to Marketplace Management. Currently there are no items in the marketplace. I have an option to Add from Azure. I will select that option, and now I am presented with a list of Azure offerings available for Azure Stack. I can now select any of the offerings and download it to local Azure Stack Marketplace.
I will select Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and start the download. The Windows Server 2016 image is 40 gigabytes in size, so the download will take more than a few minutes. You can monitor the download status from Marketplace Management. Once the download is complete, I can now create a virtual machine. I will navigate to Marketplace. When I go to marketplace now, I see Windows Server 2016 option, in Virtual Machines category.
I'm going to click on it and click create. If you're familiar with Microsoft Azure, you will notice the similarity with the Azure VM creation process. Here I will provide VM name, username, password and other details. I will leave VM disk type to HDD. The subscription referred to here is Azure Stack subscription. And I haven't created any additional subscriptions, so I will use the default.
I will create a new resource group called win2016. I will leave default location selected and proceed further. Next I will select the VM size. Here, I have selected D1_V2 Standard image, as it is sufficient to run Windows Server 2016. Next I will need to configure storage account, virtual network and other details.
I will accept suggestions Azure Stack has provided. I'm not going to deploy any additional extensions or make this VM highly available. I will accept the defaults and continue. On the summary page, I will verify the information presented and click OK. The deployment can take a few minutes to complete. Once the VM is created, it can connect to the VM using Remote Desktop Client.
