Add a VM to host pool?

Contributor
I originally created a host pool for up to 20 users and it made 2 instanced and I used an image created in Azure.
At this point how can I add a 3rd VM?

@John Quile  Microsoft has just released an updated autoscaling ARM Template.  I haven't tried it myself, but I've been told it works much better than previous iterations.  Give that a try?

 

You can also do it manually.  Spin up a new VM using whatever image you based the host pool on, then install the RDInfra agents, as outlined here:

That usually works for us.  Sometimes I can't get it to work (haven't figured out why) and say to heck with it.  On those occasions I destroy the host pool and redeploy it with more hosts.
