I am looking to create an Azure VM that has Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (or Enterprise). It must be either Standard or Enterprise, as the software that needs to be installed on it will not install / function correctly.

As far as I can tell, the standard "image" that you select from in Azure will create a Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter image.

Is there a way to select Standard or Enterprise that doesn't involve me creating a VM locally and then uploading to Azure?

  • Thanks for the confirmation. That's frustrating. :-( – user228546 Dec 3 '18 at 18:42

Unfortunately, we should create a VM locally and upload to Azure.

For now, Windows server 2008 R2 Standard or Enterprise are not available.

Here is the available images list:

More information about Windows server available images, please refer to this link.

  • Thanks for the confirmation. Once I managed to get a locally created hyper-v disk uploaded onto Azure, I was able to then create a VM based on that image. – Brendan Green Oct 4 '17 at 11:11
