Import an Existing Azure Managed Image as a Desktop Image

Existing Azure managed images in a private library or Azure Compute Gallery can be imported as a Nerdio Manager desktop image.

To import an Azure managed image as a desktop image:

  1. In the Azure portal, use the source Azure managed image to create a new VM.

    Note: This is a temporary VM and should be deleted after the import process. It does not matter what you call it or what network it is connected to.

  2. Power off the VM.

  3. Navigate to Settings > Disks.

  4. Select the OS disk and then select Disk Export.

  5. Select Generate URL.

    The URL is generated.

  6. Copy the generated URL to the clipboard.

  7. In Nerdio Manager, at the Account level, navigate to Desktop Images.

  8. Select Add from Azure VM.

  9. Enter the following information:

    • SAS URL: Paste the URL from the clipboard.

    • Join to AD: Unselect this option and provide the local admin credentials to be created on the imported VM.

    • Enter the information for the other fields.See Overview of Desktop Images for for detailed information.

  10. Once you have entered all the desired information, select OK.

    The desktop image import task starts.

  11. Delete the temporary VM created above.
