Azure Scaleset

When we are migrating from on-premise to cloud, can we add that VM into the existing scaleset?

Hello!@Mani000 

 

Azure Scalesets are per VM ( Image ) 

The Scale set spins up new VMs from the same "master" image 

So you cant add two different images / VMs to the same ScaleSet. 

 

If you want to make an on-prem VM into an Azure VM, you can make a syspreped custom image of the VHD from the on-prem VM. 
And then use that custom image as the base of a new ScaleSet in Azure.

@oliwer_sundgren: thanks for the response! So, what I understand is that while we are migrating from on-premise to Azure, we cannot add that VM into the existing scale-set. Please correct me if I am wrong.

No problem! @Mani000 

 

That is correct. You'll have to create a new scale-set for that machine 

 

If you're satisfied then please mark my response as a solution :)
