Cannot Create Managed Disk from Snapshot

Jeremiah Adams 171 Reputation points

I was able to create a standard HDD Disk from a snapshot until today. This is now the error I see below.

Anyone have any ideas?

"code": "DeploymentFailed",
"message": "At least one resource deployment operation failed. Please list deployment operations for details. Please see for usage details.",
"details": [
"code": "InvalidTier",
"message": "Setting a tier explicitly on the disk CRMPRODDISK for account type Standard_LRS is not supported."

    Hi - you can create a PremiumSSD and convert it to any Harddisk-Service Type using the Script described here - you can skip everything which is related to the VM if you don't want to change anything related to the size and the disk is not connected to the VM.

    This was changed over the course of a week. Last week I could create a standard HDD from a snapshot via point and click in the portal. The portal is unstable.

    This is bug in a portal which shall be fixed by Microsoft. Setting tier from powershell works fine.

    get-azDisk -Name <diskName> -ResourceGroupName <resourcegroupName>
    $disk.Sku =  [Microsoft.Azure.Management.Compute.Models.DiskSku]::new("StandardSSD_LRS")
    $disk | update-azdisk
