Convert CMG

Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager 2107 permit to convert the CMG (Cloud Management Gateway) with classic cloud service to virtual machine scale set. I write a post few month ago here for configure CMG with virtual machine scale set.

Change parameter

When you convert to virtual machine scale set, you can proceed to change some parameters.

  • VM size
  • VM instances
  • Verify CRL
  • Require TLS
  • Serve content

It is not possible to change the following parameters

  • Azure environment
  • Subscription
  • Azure AD app
  • Region
  • Resource group

Be careful in case the service name of the CMG uses a domain name in cloudapp.net, it is not possible to proceed to the conversion. In this case it is necessary to deploy a new CMG and then delete the old one once the customers have recovered the strategies configuring the new CMG.
