Description

The Add-AzureEndpoint cmdlet adds an endpoint to an Azure virtual machine object.

Examples

Example 1: Add an endpoint

PS C:\> Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "ContosoService" -Name "VirutalMachine01" | Add-AzureEndpoint -Name "HttpIn" -Protocol "tcp" -PublicPort 80 -LocalPort 8080 | Update-AzureVM

This command retrieves the configuration of a virtual machine named VirtualMachine01 by using the Get-AzureVM cmdlet. The command passes it to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. This cmdlet adds an endpoint named HttpIn. The endpoint has a public port 80 and local port 8080. The command passes the virtual machine object to the Update-AzureVM cmdlet, which implements your changes.

Example 2: Add an endpoint that belongs to a load balanced group

PS C:\> Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "LoadBalancedService" -Name "VirtualMachine12" | Add-AzureEndpoint -Name "HttpIn" -Protocol "tcp" -PublicPort 80 -LocalPort 8080 -LBSetName "WebFarm" -ProbePort 80 -ProbeProtocol "http" -ProbePath '/' | Update-AzureVM

This command retrieves the configuration of a virtual machine named VirtualMachine07. The current cmdlet adds an endpoint named HttpIn. The endpoint has a public port 80 and local port 8080. The endpoint belongs to the shared load balanced group named WebFarm. An HTTP probe on port 80 with a path of '/' monitors the availability of the endpoint. The command implements your changes.

Example 3: Associate a virtual IP to an endpoint

PS C:\> Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "ContosoService" -Name "VirtualMachine25" | Add-AzureEndpoint -Name "HttpIn" -Protocol "tcp" -LocalPort 8080 -PublicPort 80 -VirtualIPName "ContosoVip11" | Update-AzureVM

This command retrieves the configuration of a virtual machine named VirtualMachine25. The current cmdlet adds an endpoint named HttpIn. The endpoint has a public port 80 and local port 8080. This command associates a virtual IP to the endpoint. The command implements your changes.
