apparentlymart examples: relativeize the graph.png references
Many of the example README files reference a graph image, but they were
previously absolute paths using the directory structure from the main
Terraform repo. By relativizing these references, they will no longer be
sensitive to their location within the repository.

Create a Virtual Machine from a User Image

This Terraform template was based on this Azure Quickstart Template. Changes to the ARM template that may have occurred since the creation of this example may not be reflected here.

Prerequisite - The generalized image VHD should exist, as well as a Storage Account for boot diagnostics

This template allows you to create a Virtual Machine from an unmanaged User image vhd. This template also deploys a Virtual Network, Public IP addresses and a Network Interface.

The file contains the actual resources that will be deployed. It also contains the Azure Resource Group definition and any defined variables.

This data is outputted when terraform apply is called, and can be queried using the terraform output command.

Azure requires that an application is added to Azure Active Directory to generate the client_id, client_secret, and tenant_id needed by Terraform (subscription_id can be recovered from your Azure account details). Please go here for full instructions on how to create this to populate your file.


If a terraform.tfvars or any .auto.tfvars files are present in the current directory, Terraform automatically loads them to populate variables. We don't recommend saving usernames and password to version control, but you can create a local secret variables file and use the -var-file flag or the .auto.tfvars extension to load it.

If you are committing this template to source control, please insure that you add this file to your .gitignore file.

The file contains all of the input parameters that the user can specify when deploying this Terraform template.
