Public preview: Arc-enabled guest VMs with extensions for Azure Stack HCI
Published date: 19 July, 2022
When you deploy a new virtual machine through Azure Arc onto Azure Stack HCI, the guest operating system is now automatically enrolled as an Arc-enabled server instance. This means you can use popular VM extensions like Custom Script to perform configuration inside the VM (like installing an application) as part of VM deployment. To illustrate the usefulness of this capability, Microsoft is providing a sample custom script extension that enrolls a VM into an Azure Virtual Desktop session host pool, eliminating manual configuration of the guest agent as its own step. This preview is available for all in-market Arc-enabled Azure Stack HCI.
