Why am i seeing these disks

Hi

Not to sure why im seeing these disks when i go to create a virtual machine in the gallery items section in the tenant portal.

I can see the templates which is good but im seeing disks that are the vhdx files that have the OS on them. When i go to set it up it asks to set a size which i cant.

1. why are they there, are they suppose to be
2. why cant i put a size in?

thanks in advanced

VHDX is a new file format for VM's disk.

These files must be there.

please specify where it is asking to put the size.

When you create a VM using template it will copy same template disk into the new VM folder.

If you want to resize the disk you have to go to the settings --> select disk and in the right hand side click on the edit option.

This option will provide you expand or compact feature.

So let me get this straight . The template that I have created will also show the associated disk that is attached to it in the setup process in the portal?

Pradeep DubeyConsultantCommented:
Yes it will also show its own disk and when you create a VM using this template it will create new disk (copy template disk) into the folder of this VM.

both VM templete and newVM will have its own disk.

Why do they do that, it's confusing. All it should show is the template...agree?

Pradeep DubeyConsultantCommented:
This is required as part of individual VM.

Individual VM itself means it have its own hardware.

Template is something which will make your VM Creation job easy. Template has to be created with the OS and its latest patches. also its configuration is very similar to the requested VM by end users.

I hope you are aware of use of VM Template.

Yes I am, was just thrown off why it was shown and then why if I clicked on it I couldn't changed the size, but I guess that's not to be edited  nor selected just the template is. If I need to change the size I'll do what you mentioned . That sound right ?
