Create a virtual machine on System Center Virtual Machine Manager using Azure Arc (preview)
Once your administrator has connected an SCVMM management server to Azure, represented VMM resources such as private clouds, VM templates in Azure, and provided you the required permissions on those resources, you'll be able to create a virtual machine in Azure.
- An Azure subscription and resource group where you have Arc SCVMM VM Contributor role.
- A cloud resource on which you have Arc SCVMM Private Cloud Resource User role.
- A virtual machine template resource on which you have Arc SCVMM Private Cloud Resource User role.
- A virtual network resource on which you have Arc SCVMM Private Cloud Resource User role.
