Win 2008 R2 VM deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to deploy a VM - win 2008 R2. I don't have a sample VHD. Is it possible to create it from any default image that azure provides? If so, where and how could I start? In essence, I am trying to have a Win 2008 R2 server with SQL Server 2008 database, so I can deploy an application - say Dynamics GP 2010.  If I were to deploy in a public cloud, I would purchase the following: 

    2 core CPU, 4 to 8 GB RAM then I would install an image of Win 2008 R2 (OS) and SQL Server DB. Usually I can puchase a public cloud server pre-installed with Win Srv 2008 R2 with SQL Server DB. 

    Any idea how I could deploy such VM in Azure. I have a beta VM enabled.  Appreciate your thoughts.
