  • Hello Vikrant,

    I would suggest that you first test your configurations as below:
    Test-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment -ResourceGroupName ExampleResourceGroup -TemplateFile <PathToTemplate>
    And, then you go for final deployment with mode as Incremental.
    Do not mention the storage account deployment details except for the VHD url.
    It will server your purpose. 

    regards,
