Description

The New-AzureSqlDatabase cmdlet creates an Azure SQL Database. You can specify the server by using an Azure SQL Database server connection context that you create using the New-AzureSqlDatabaseServerContext cmdlet. Or, if you specify the server name, the cmdlet uses the current Azure subscription information to authenticate the request to access the server.

When you create a new database by specifying an Azure SQL Database server, the New-AzureSqlDatabase cmdlet creates a temporary connection context using the specified server name and the current Azure subscription information to perform the operation.

Examples

Example 1: Create a database

PS C:\> $Database01 = New-AzureSqlDatabase -ConnectionContext $Context -DatabaseName "Database01" -Edition "Business" -MaxSizeGB 50 -Collation "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS"

This command creates an Azure SQL Database named Database1, for the Azure SQL Database server connection context $Context.

Example 2: Create a database in the current subscription

PS C:\> $Database01 = New-AzureSqlDatabase -ServerName "lpqd0zbr8y" -DatabaseName "Database01" -Edition "Business" -MaxSizeGB 50 -Collation "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS"

This example creates a database named Database1, in the specified Azure SQL Database server named lpqd0zbr8y. The cmdlet uses the current Azure subscription information to authenticate the request to access the server.
