Description Jeff Teehan 2017-07-19 13:20:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Azure has two requirements that our build process is not meeting.  First, the disk has to be a fixed size.  Second, the fixed size needs to be exactly divisible by 1mb.

This is what we are telling our customers to do, if they can find the article.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Been around for a while.

How reproducible:
Try to upload the azure image and create an appliance from it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Take standard azure image - cfme-azure-5.x.x.x-1.x86_64.vhd
2.  Upload as is to azure.

Actual results:
The disk and VM is unusable.

Expected results:
We seem to be getting complaints on this on a weekly basis.

Mostly of the people who run into this feel we should just correctly size the vhd at build time.

Additional info:
This requirement was in classic mode.  For a year, it wasn't a requirement in Resource Manager mode.  Sometime in the spring the re-implemented the requirement.

I show that a gzipped aligned vdf file is 1/10th the size of the standard download and should be the default offering.
