- DNS prefix and suffix
- size of the VM's, default is `Standard_D2_v3`

## Create / Apply
### Create / Apply
Create the Azure VM with. After 5 minutes the VM should be up and running, and the provision.ps1 script will run inside the VM to install Packer, Vagrant, HyperV and then reboots the VM.
```bash
terraform apply
```
## Destroy
## Stage 2: Packer build
Now RDP into the Azure VM. Open a PowerShell terminal and clone my packer-windows repo or any other repo with a Packer template for HyperV.
```
git clone https://github.com/StefanScherer/packer-windows
mkdir D:\packer_cache
$env:PACKER_CACHE="D:\packer_cache"
cd packer-windows
packer build --only=hyperv-iso --var hyperv_switchname=ext windows_2016_docker.json
```
Packer creates an external Hyper-V virtual switch with name "ext". It downloads the eval ISO file and boots a Hyper-V VM to run the whole packer build configuration.
You could also try to run it in this Azure VM with
```bash
terraform destroy
```
vagrant box add windows_2016_docker windows_2016_docker_hyperv.box
cd ..
git clone https://github.com/StefanScherer/docker-windows-box
cd docker-windows-box
vagrant up
```
### packer push
Now you can push the Vagrant box to Vagrant Cloud (https://app.vagrantup.com).
