I've been trying to work out how to move a VM from one region (WestUS) in one resource group to another region in another resource gorup (WestEurope).
I'm trying to do it via the portal but I'm having problems at every turn.
I have created a backup and a snapshot. I have also captured the original VM (which renders it unusable - see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63340139/why-does-capturing-an-image-of-a-vm-in-azure-prevent-the-vm-from-being-used).
When I try to create a VM from my snapshot I get:
"Creating a virtual machine from Marketplace image or a custom image sourced from a Marketplace image requires Plan information in the request"
The only link discussing this is https://negatblog.wordpress.com/2018/10/13/azure-os-images-what-is-a-plan/ which is not helpful.
My image is not a "marketplace" image. Why do I need a 'plan'? Where do I even put this configuration information?
More generally why is something so basic as duplicating a VM so horrendously complex to achieve in practice with Azure?
