Hello everyone 

I'm working on a azure-rm build out with a combination of Ansible and 
powershell provisioners. I'm fairly new to packer and part of my issue 
might just be mu lack of understanding. I'm able to build and capture  the 
below json as long as it doesn't contain the ansible provisioner. Once i 
include the ansible playbook it run through my ansible plays then closed 
the SSH connection. is there a way to run through my ansible provisioner 
and still runs the powershell to sysprep the machine after?
