New-​Azure​Traffic​Manager​Profile

Creates a Traffic Manager profile.

Syntax

New-AzureTrafficManagerProfile
   -DomainName <String>
   -LoadBalancingMethod <String>
   -MonitorPort <Int32>
   -MonitorProtocol <String>
   -MonitorRelativePath <String>
   -Name <String>
   [-Profile <AzureSMProfile>]
   -Ttl <Int32>
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-AzureTrafficManagerProfile cmdlet creates a Microsoft Azure Traffic Manager profile.

After you create a profile where you set the LoadBalancingMethod value to "Failover", you can determine the failover order of the endpoints you add to your profile with the Add-AzureTrafficManagerEndpoint cmdlet. For more information, see Example 2 below.

Examples

Example 1: Create a Traffic Manager profile

PS C:\>New-AzureTrafficManagerProfile -Name "MyProfile" -DomainName "My.profile.trafficmanager.net" -LoadBalancingMethod "RoundRobin" -Ttl 30 -MonitorProtocol "Http" -MonitorPort 80 -MonitorRelativePath "/"

This command creates a Traffic Manager profile named MyProfile in the specified Traffic Manager domain with a Round Robin load balancing method, a TTL of 30 seconds, HTTP monitoring protocol, monitoring port 80, and with the specified path.

Example 2: Reorder endpoints to desired failover order

PS C:\>$Profile = Get-AzureTrafficManagerProfile -Name "MyProfile"
PS C:\> $Profile.Endpoints[0],$Profile.Endpoints[1] = $Profile.Endpoints[1],$Profile.Endpoints[0]
PS C:\> $Profile = Set-AzureTrafficManagerProfile

This example reorders the endpoints added to MyProfile to the desired failover order.

The first command gets the Traffic Manager profile object named MyProfile and stores the object in the $Profile variable.

The second command re-orders the endpoints from the endpoints array to the order in which failover should occur.

The last command updates the Traffic Manager profile stored in $Profile with the new endpoint order.
