Various conversations on twitter have triggered this blogpost.
For those of you working in Azure and using MCS to provision servers, this will come in handy.
So; MCS in azure will give you an option to rollback to your previous image and you can also use snapshots with managed disks; its not always the solution though.
Earlier version of CVAD didn’t support managed disks, so in this scenario rollback to anything prior to your last MCS update isn’t easy.
I wrote a script a while back to handle this and wanted to share it.
The script will copy the vhd file from your master VM into a different storage container in the same storage account and give it a date and time suffix. Using this format you have full rollback opportunities between any previous versions of the image.
