- Issue 2: WAP administrators cannot hide specific VHDs from the Tenant UI during VM Creation
This behavior make sure that any VHD used by the WAP administrator for system administration or any other deployments outside the scope of WAP are seen by tenant users and can be selected by users when they are provisioning their virtual machines (VMs).
Symptom Tenants can see and select VHDs that are not meant to be used to create tenant VMS. This always results in VM failure and bad user experiences.
Resolution Administrators can tag specific VHDs in Microsoft Virtual Machine manager (VMM) by using the “WAPHIDDEN” tag. This causes the VHDs not to be listed in the tenant portal UI. This does not hide the VHDs from any other interface, such as PowerShell cmdlets and REST APIs.
