Part3: Before creating a service template and deploy it, we need to save the vhdx created earlier to the library. You can manually copy the vhdx to the library (SQL Server Image) and then create a VM Template. After copying, refresh the library to make sure the new disk is listed.
I will leave other settings up to your environment. Make sure to select HA.
In Configure SQL Server Section, add the SQL Profile we created earlier, called SQLDeployment, then create the template.
To Create Service Template, select create, and then single Machine.
At this point the designer opens, you need to drag the disk and drop it on the template on the right. Then click save and validate.
Validate and click configure deployment. Name your deployment.
In the deploy service screen, at the bottom, you will see properties of each component. Change it as required, name, host to deploy etc.
After the deployment completes, you can see it is listed in the services section:
If you get an error during deployment, check “C:\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\summary.txt” for errors.
