Need to upgrade your Windows 11 Sku’s in your automation like Packer, Azure Image Builder or manual Bicep/ARM Templates? Use these tables below in order to find the correct information for your scripts.

  • Windows 11 PRO N – Gen2
  • Windows 11 PRO – Gen2
  • Windows 11 Enterprise N – Gen2

After the comment from Tom Hickling I have added the following. If you run this code:

Get-AzVMImageSku -Location westeurope -PublisherName MicrosoftWindowsDesktop -Offer windows-11 | Select Skus
