We are running Tableau Server in Azure Windows virtual machines. We need to setup multiple VM's with the exact same setup so I was thinking of setting up Tableau on 1 Widows VM. Run sysprep to generalize it and create an image. I will use this image to create any new Tableau server VM's. I cannot find any documentation to confirm if Tableau and its underlying components will support sysprep. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
From what i have understand, Tableau should survive sysprep or imaging in Azure.But do note that you should turn off tableau and take the image and once you setup image, you can turn it back on as part of final stages after Prep. Taking sysprep of live running server is not advisable.
