  • You can put the VHD on a blob and use across subscriptions.

  • So I'm assuming that I would then change the value of href in <OsImage href="StableBuild.4.20.12.vhd" /> to point to the url of the VM in the blob?

  • I tried that and it said that the image does not exist, even though the url clearly does, as when I put it in a browser it begins downloading.
