Moving a Virtual Machine with the Azure Resource Mover

Kathi Kellenberger tries out the Azure Resource Mover:

Another task I may want to perform is to move a VM to another region. I found this set of steps that involves using Azure Recovery Services Vault that seems a bit complex. Fortunately, I recently heard about a new, much easier way to move VMs and other resources called Azure Resource Mover (in preview). It was announced today.

Read on to see how this works. I like the idea a lot, especially for those times when you accidentally create resources in different regions and only realize it when it’s time to tie everything together.
