In this article, I explain a way how to manage Windows Updates for Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). To achieve this goal I use update rings in Microsoft Endpoint Manager. These update rings will be assigned to a dynamic Azure AD group. I also show how to create and assign this configuration automated with the use of PowerShell.
Welcome to a brand new series called Operation North Star. In the upcoming series, I will show how to manage AVD environments with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. I talk about how to manage AVD environments and how to deploy these settings automated. At last, I try to show how to configure a new way of management.
Azure Virtual Desktop is growing and becomes available at new (metadata) locations more and more. In this article I will explain how to move AVD session hosts to a new AVD host pool. metadata location with REST API and PowerShell.
Welcome to the AVD Automation Cocktail. In this cocktail series I will show different AVD deployment strategies and languages. In this cocktail, the Pineapple Citrus Splash, I will show you how to deploy an AVD environment automated with with REST API, JSON executed with PowerShell.
Costs are a topic of an Azure conversation very often. As we all know you pay for usage, if it is storage, CPU or bandwidth usage, (almost) every resource has its price. For Windows Virtual Desktop it means you have to pay for CPU usage, for example. It is important then to keep this usage as low as possible. Now there is an option to keep these usage as low as possible with WVD Start VM on Connect.
Using Azure DevOps is a really nice way to deploy resources in Azure, so also for Windows Virtual Desktop. Before you are able to deploy resources into Azure with pipelines you will need to setup a project and a service connection first. In post I will explain how to create a DevOps Service Connection the automated way.
