Being able to move Managed Disks and Images, VMs and Snapshots in Azure across Resource Groups and Subscriptions is a MAJOR organizational improvement and time saver.
To get this new functionality in your Azure subscription, you’ll need to register the feature via PowerShell – be sure to do BOTH registrations – once for the feature, and register again for the Computer RP:
Register-AzureRmProviderFeature -FeatureName ManagedResourcesMove -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Compute
Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Compute
For example, we’ve been able to easily reorganize important but aged snapshots all into one resource group, cleaning up unnecessary Resource Group sprawl and consolidating some vital resources. The snapshots can still be moved across subscriptions and resource groups via PowerShell, but it helps to visually have them all in the same container.
