Hi Team, I'm running into the following error when trying to update the image reference of a VM: error: autorest/azure: Service returned an error. Status=<nil> Code="PropertyChangeNotAllowed" Message="Changing property 'imageReference.id' is not allowed." Target="imageReference.id". Anyone facing similar issue ?

did you make a code change?

Yes I did introduce several changes.

can you share your code and wht you changed? some options/parameters are immutable

Unfortunately I did not track what was changed, this is PoC. I'm going to start again with a blank slate and see if I can reproduce the issue just by changing the value of the image reference.
So I did restart from scratch, using the image reference as a string in the configuration and got the very same error message after changing its value in the configuration:

that's kinda hard to read sorry, can you wrap the code in 3 backticks each side

are you using auto naming? it looks like that value is immutable

numerous-action-56322

08/31/2021, 8:51 PM
I do
This is probably a silly question, but how do I workaround that ? I mean how can I update a virtual machine when there is a new image that I want to push ?
b

billowy-army-68599

08/31/2021, 8:58 PM
can you show me the diff when you go to update? if you're using autonaming, it should replace the VM with a new VM using the new image ID

yeah I'm thinking this might be a bug at this point, would you mind filing an issue in github.com/pulumi/azure-native
it should do a replace, not an update

which version of the provider are you using?
@numerous-action-56322 I think it's this property:
Copy code
ComputerName = $"{orgname}-{gridname}-n{i+1}",
can you try removing it?

Thanks for the thorough follow up. I’ll do it as soon as I get a chance and keep you informed on the outcome.
I'm afraid I cannot remove it, it is a required ppty.

@numerous-action-56322 I discussed privately with Mikhail, to get you unblocked you can use `replaceOnChanges`: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/resources/#replaceonchanges

@billowy-army-68599 Thanks again.
@billowy-army-68599 I've been trying to implement the provided workaround, however updates are still failing with the very same error message, as if the additional CustomResourceOptions passed as a third argument were ineffective
Copy code
new CustomResourceOptions{
                    ReplaceOnChanges =new List<string>(new string[] {"imageReference.id"} ),
                }
I even tried to relax the property path by using just "imageReference" and the the joker "*" . Any idea ? Btw, I could not reuse the C# sample from the documentation since I don't know what the var
pulumi
stands for. Could this be the reason why my updates are still not working ? For your convenience, here's the sample provided in the documentation , the var `pulumi`appears on the last line only.
Copy code
var widget = new Pulumi.Kubernetes.ApiExtensions.CustomResource("widget", new WidgetArgs
{
    Spec = new WidgetSpecArgs
    {
        Input = "something",
    }
}, pulumi.ReplaceOnChanges([]string{"spec.input"}));
