Microsoft AZURE Setup
Posted on 2014-08-03
I created a trial Microsoft AZURE account for testing.
In that I created a Virtual Machine running Windows 2012 R2 Server as a domain controller. I have been setting up on-premises File Server boxes only; therefore I am new to this. With that I just have some questions and let me ask one at a time.
- I spun up Windows 2012 VM and installed Active Directory with DNS service.
- Create three user accounts in AD.
Here is 1st question:
(1) In on-premises File Server system, you join Windows 7 workstation to the domain and log in to the domain using your account which runs login script (for drive mapping .. etc). Then the user sees the desktop screen with application icons & printers. So you access files/folders via map drives (F, G .. etc) and print.
How does this work in AZURE Cloud system? Windows 7 OS is not an option in when creating a new VM. If I can't create a virtual machine running Windows 7 or 8, how do users log in to the W2012/VM? What is the process?
