Description

For using a pre-configured image with AppScale and AppScale Tools installed on it, you can use the public AppScale VHD URL and following the next steps:

URL: https://appscaleazure.blob.core.windows.net/system/Microsoft.Compute/Images/mytemplates/template-osDisk.b60acf24-7038-4074-b379-cde1e0804386.vhd

(i) You will have to create a new resource group and storage account or specify any existing account names to use as azure_resource_group and azure_storage_account in the AppScaleFile below.

(ii) You will need to upload the AppScale public VHD URL to the same storage account by providing the container name, storage account name and the access key using the command:
azure storage blob copy start https://appscaleazure.blob.core.windows.net/system/Microsoft.Compute/Images/mytemplates/template-osDisk.b60acf24-7038-4074-b379-cde1e0804386.vhd {container-name} -a {storage-account} -k {storage-access-key}

(iii) This command performs an asynchronous copy and the status can be checked by running the command:
azure storage blob copy show -a {storage-account} -k {storage-access-key} --container {container-name} --blob {blob-name}

  • blob-name is the URL for the entire path where the blob would be uploaded. E.g. Microsoft.Compute/Images/mytemplates/template-osDisk.b60acf24-7038-4074-b379-cde1e0804386.vhd
