How to change the number of resources you are licensed for in the Azure Marketplace

In order to increase or decrease your resource count you must subscribe to and provision a new VM with the licence for the number of resources you need. You can then delete the old VM.

Hyperglance is provisioned with 2 Disk volumes, an OS volume and a Data volume. If you have SAML configuration, rules or many account definitions it may be easier to move the data volume over to the new Hyperglance instance than to re-enter.

To move the data volume follow these instructions:

1) Stop Hyperglance instance

2) Detach data disk on old VM -> Save

5) Detach data disk -> Save

6) Attach old data volume to new VM under LUN 0 -> Save

7) Start new VM

8) Login to Hyperglance via Browser  (Remember your password will be transferred from the old deployment).
