ASDK Installation with Global Admin account

Bhutmare, Vilas 1 Reputation point

Hello Team,

I am working on the POC to install the Azure Stack Development kit on the Azure VM.
The tenant which is being used for the POC is being used for other live application as well.

The question is as we need Global admin account to install the ASDK, will it impact the Tenant configuration and other subscriptions?

Would there be any issue with my other subscriptions and applications?

Would it make any changes to the Tenant?

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform, thanks for posting your query here.

    The installation of the ASDK on an Azure VM is not supported. Please refer this ASDK requirements and considerations documentation.
    As far as what a global admin can do on a subscription, that is also well documented, and while the installation itself is not going to necessarily cause an issue, anyone that has access to that account would be able to make changes to the broader environment.

    The global admin is necessary to register the the Azure Stack object to a subscription - I'm not aware of anything from a tenant perspective that gets altered.

    Hope that helps.
