Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1315947
[RFE] When provisioning to Azure, Resource Group should be listed first under placement.
Last modified: 2016-05-06 12:29:00 EDT
Description of problem:
In the Azure Provisioning: Environment Tab : Placement Options, Resource Group is the last choice, but the first three fields are sub-components of the Resource Group. As Resource Group is the top most important selection, it doesn't make sense to select it last as it would void all the previous selections if they were not in that Resource Group.
Or, it should be automatically selected based on the Resource Group associated with the Storage Account which contains the Image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
A virtual machine can be provisioned to a different resource group than the one the selected network/subnet belongs to. The requirement is that the resource groups of each must belong to the same region. If you select a resource group and then change your mind and select a different one you will not see any change in the cloud network/subnet controls.
Also, it wouldn't be ideal to force the virtual machine to be placed in the same resource group that the source image (storage account) belongs to.
Ok, let me try a few more complicated provision requests and if it handles them all I'll close this. If we are going to allow any resource group to be used then we should also update the docs and require that the Active Directory App be assigned to the entire subscription rather than at the Resource Group level, unless you're already checking for that.
I'm just so used to having Resource Group being drilled into my head as just about every PowerShell cmdlet requires it as the first parameter.
Did you try a few more complicated provisioning requests? Can this ticket be closed?
We can definitely do things using cross resource group objects that don't appear to be possible using the Azure GUI. That said, it works and the VM runs without errors.
Closing as requested.
