Azure virtual desktop move subscription

FABIO MODESTO BINETTI 1 Reputation point

Hello, my client has created a new Subscription and he wants to migrate all the Azure Virtual Desktop Service to such subscription. I'm not aware of the way AVD works so I was thinking that the easiest way to perform such task was to move all the resources (all what is included in the service RG) to the new subscription.

RG are composed by:
-Recovery services backup
-Log Analytics workspace
-Storage accounts
-VM definition
-Public IP's
-Applications group
-Hosts group
-VM images version

I know that for such resources it wont be possible to use the move procedure (using web interface or powershell) ie VMs where I should detach VHD an build new Vms but I don't know if the move option is a good approach or it will be better to re-deploy all from scratch? If move option works someone knows the impact with the VD service (crashing? possible failures? etc)

    Moving Virtual Desktop to another subscription in the same region is supported. You can view the full list of supported migrations here. The guide to resource migration can be found [here][2].

    You can also migrate Windows VMs independently. You could then create a new host pool and associate them to that host poo using the reg key. View this past thread for more details on this.

    I agree that moving the majority of resource group is probably the best path but wanted to outline some other options.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you still have questions!
