Azure - Timings converting unmanaged disk to managed disk?



  • Trying to get a sense of the timing involved in converting an Azure VM using unmanaged disks to manage disks.

    As a test I converted one small vm that just had an OS disk and that took about 10 to 20 minutes. The VM was down during the entire process.

    We have some much larger machines with multiple 1TB secondary disks and I'm wondering just how much the time scales up, if all the disks are converted at the same time or done one at a time.

    Anyone have any experience with the process?

    I do not use VMs on Azure, so I have no idea. I use services, but not full VMs.
