Azure Advent Calendar 2019

So right back at the beginning of September I was talking to Gregor Suttie on Twitter about a couple of Azure things like we normally do throughout the week, most weeks.

He then mentioned that he was working on something called the ‘Azure Advent Calendar’ and wondered if I would be up for contributing as a member of the #AzureFamily. And of course I jumped at the opportunity and committed to contributing on the on 1st of December to kick it all off.

The Azure Advent Calendar is an idea that has been brought to life by Gregor Suttie & Richard Hooper (aka Pixel Robots) that will provide the chance for all members of the #AzureFamily to contribute a video and blog post about a topic of their choice related to the Azure Public Cloud.

WVD Management Tool – Cross Tenant Access Fix

With the announcement of WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop) moving into GA today I thought I’d spin my lab back up again and try and get the WVD Management Web App Tool working.

My last attempt a few weekends ago was unsuccessful and I didn’t have any time to carry on troubleshooting so I deleted the Resource Group and forgot about it the long To-Do list for another day.
