    Hi @Ritika Laddha

    You can create new virtual machines (VMs) to use as session hosts and add them to a host pool natively using the Azure Virtual Desktop service in the Azure portal

    Install the Windows Virtual Desktop Agent and Agent Bootloader.

    Generate a Registration Token (Generate a new key and copy it)
    On Agent Installation Paste the registration token into the installer when prompted.
    The VM should appear in the list of session hosts for the host pool
