  • Perform additional security checks
  • Apply custom configuration and scheduled tasks as required
  • Generalise the image
  • Test the virtual machine image
  • Run validations on the virtual machine
  • Either
    • Publish the generalised VM to a shared image gallery (preferred)
    • Generate a SAS URL to the VHD Image
