As you have mentioned, the Azure SDK v2.2 is quite old and the VM sizes available in the current Azure environment have changed. Since Azure no longer supports the Small VM size, you will need to choose a different size that is still supported and compatible with Azure SDK v2.2.
One option is to use the "Standard_B1s" VM size, which is a Basic tier VM with 1 vCPU and 1 GB RAM, and should be compatible with Azure SDK v2.2. This VM size is currently available in the East US region.
To use this VM size in your csdef file, you would need to update the "vmsize" attribute to "Standard_B1s". Your updated csdef file might look something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <ServiceDefinition name="MyCloudService" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ServiceHosting/2008/10/ServiceDefinition"> <WebRole name="WebRole1" vmsize="Standard_B1s"> <Sites> <Site name="Web"> <Bindings> <Binding name="Endpoint1" endpointName="HttpIn" /> </Bindings> </Site> </Sites> <Endpoints> <InputEndpoint name="HttpIn" protocol="http" port="80" /> </Endpoints> <Imports> <Import moduleName="Diagnostics" /> </Imports> <ConfigurationSettings> <Setting name="Setting1" /> </ConfigurationSettings> </WebRole> </ServiceDefinition>
Note that you may also need to update the VM size in your Azure deployment settings, depending on how you are deploying the application.
