Is this possible? I have a farm role that needs to be set up identically to another role (scaling, orchestration, networking, etc), except that its base role needs to change. Can I do this without having to open two browsers and manually copying all the things from the original role?

    Hi Eugene,

    It is trivial to replace the Role for a Farm Role, but it is not currently possible to clone or duplicate a configured Farm Role without some degree of manual configuration. Having said that, if you plan to do this regularly you may be able to save yourself some repetitive action by programmatically using APIv2 to Get and then Create orchestration rules from the old Farm Role to the new one. The same applies for scaling as well. Please let us know if this is a significant problem for you or if this APIv2 method will not suffice. Likewise, let us know if you have any further questions.

    Many thanks,
