I have a web application that I deploy over and over again but in different Azure environments. The WIndows VM itself does not change (I install the webapp and it connects to a SQL Database).
What I am looking for is 1. How do I make a template of the entire setup (VM and then SQL Server)? I know I can make the templates based upon the VM code but how do I actually install the App first and make that a Gold Disk? 2. The web app generated a X509 certificate each time, so that other servers if they connect can communicate security, is there a way to automate this process each time?
Thanks, I really am newer to Azure deployments so I am just getting my feet wet.
