Description

The New-AzureQuickVM cmdlet configures and creates an Azure virtual machine. This cmdlet can deploy a virtual machine into an existing Azure service. This cmdlet can alternatively create an Azure service that hosts the new virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1: Create a virtual machine

PS C:\> New-AzureQuickVM -Windows -ServiceName "ContosoService17" -Name "VirutalMachine01" -ImageName "Image07" -Password "password" -AdminUsername "AdminMain" -WaitForBoot

This command creates a virtual machine that runs the Windows operating system in an existing service. The cmdlet bases the virtual machine on the specified image. The command specifies the WaitForBoot parameter. Therefore, the cmdlet waits for the virtual machine to start.

Example 2: Create a virtual machine that by using certificates

PS C:\> $certs = Get-ChildItem Cert:\CurrentUser\My
PS C:\> New-AzureQuickVM -Windows -ServiceName "MySvc1" -name "MyWinVM1" -ImageName "Image07" -Password "password" -AdminUserName "AdminMain" -WinRMCertificate $certs[0] -X509Certificates $certs[1], $certs[2] -WaitForBoot

The first command gets certificates from a store, and stores them in the $certs variable.

The second command creates a virtual machine that runs the Windows operating system in an existing service from an image. By default, WinRM Https listener is enabled on the virtual machine. The command specifies the WaitForBoot parameter. Therefore, the cmdlet waits for the virtual machine to start. The command uploads a WinRM Certificate and X509Certificates to the hosted service.

Example 3: Create a virtual machine that runs the Linux operating system

PS C:\> New-AzureQuickVM -Linux -ServiceName "ContosoServiceLinux01" -Name "LinuxVirtualMachine01" -ImageName "LinuxImage01" -LinuxUser "RootMain" -Password "password" -Location "Central US"

This command creates a virtual machine that runs the Linux operating system from an image. This command creates a service to host the new virtual machine. The command specifies a location for the service.

Example 4: Create a virtual machine and create a service to host the new virtual machine

PS C:\> $Locations = Get-AzureLocation
PS C:\> $Images = Get-AzureVMImage
PS C:\> New-AzureQuickVM -Windows -InstanceSize "Large" -ServiceName "ContosoService03" -Name " VirtualMachine25" -ImageName $images[4].imagename -Password "password" -AdminUsername "AdminMain" -Location $Locations[0].name

The first command gets locations by using the Get-AzureLocation cmdlet, and then stores them in the $Locations array variable.

The second command gets available images by using the Get-AzureVMImage cmdlet, and then stores them in the $Images array variable.

The final command creates a large virtual machine named VirtualMachine25. The virtual machine runs the Windows operating system. It is based on one of the images in $Images. The command creates a service named ContosoService03 for the new virtual machine. The service is in a location in $Locations.

Example 5: Create a virtual machine that has a reserved IP name

PS C:\> $Locations = Get-AzureLocation
PS C:\> $Images = Get-AzureVMImage
PS C:\> New-AzureQuickVM -Windows -InstanceSize "Large" -ServiceName "ContosoService04" -Name "VirtualMachine27" -ImageName $Images[4].imagename -Password "password" -AdminUsername "AdminMain" -Location $Locations[0].name -ReservedIPName $ipName

The first command gets locations, and then stores them in the $Locations array variable.

The second command gets available images, and then stores them in the $Images array variable.

The final command creates a virtual machine named VirtualMachine27 based on one of the images in $Images. The command creates a service in a location in $Locations. The virtual machine has a reserved IP name, previously stored in the $ipName variable.
