Recently I needed to move a VM from one vNet to another. There are a few ways to do this, but for me, as the VM was not critical, I was able to stop it, then delete it, and then recreate it using the Managed Disk. Below I will go through the steps of creating a new VM from a managed disk.
Creating The VM
Navigate to your Managed Disk and click it.
Now you will see a button called Create VM. Click it.
You will now have the Create a virtual machine blade showing. You will see under Image your Managed Disk. Just fill in the blade as you would when creating a new VM.
And there you have it, a new VM from your managed disk. If you were doing this to move the VM vNet like me, make sure you clean up the old nic and other resources.
I hope you found this article helpful. If you have any questions please reach out using the normal methods.

The first reason was basically just a place for me to store my step by step guides, troubleshooting guides and just plain ideas about being a sysadmin. The second reason was to share what I have learned and found out with other people like me. Hopefully, you can find something useful on the site.
