Hello,

 

I have adopted a "Ring" concept for managing Host Pool image versions.  This works well for deploying new Host Pools from updated images while providing a good way to test the update, transition users and ultimately have a fallback plan if needed.

 

But I've noticed a Host Pool property actually called "ring" and I'm curious about its intended use.  I cant find any reference to it or how it should be used other than the definition of "The ring number of HostPool" as referenced in the PowerShell documentation.

 

New-AzWVDHostPool
Update-AzWVDHostPool

 

You can even add this property to the Host Pool view in the Azure Portal.

Does anyone have any information about this?

no customer relevance. Its an internal concept only.
