Description

The New-AzureVMConfig cmdlet creates an Azure virtual machine configuration object. You can use this object to perform a new deployment and add a new virtual machine to an existing deployment.

Examples

Example 1: Create a Windows virtual machine configuration

PS C:\> $Image = (Get-AzureVMImage)[4].ImageName 
C:\PS> New-AzureVMConfig -Name "MyVM1" -InstanceSize ExtraSmall -ImageName $Image | Add-AzureProvisioningConfig -Windows -Password $AdminPassword | Add-AzureDataDisk -CreateNew -DiskSizeInGB 50 -DiskLabel "Datadisk1" -LUN 0 | New-AzureVM -ServiceName "MySvc1"

This command creates a Windows virtual machine configuration with operating system disk, data disk and provisioning configuration. This configuration is then used to create a new virtual machine.

Example 2: Create a Linux virtual machine configuration

PS C:\> $Image = (Get-AzureVMImage)[7].ImageName
C:\PS> New-AzureVMConfig -Name "MyVM1" -InstanceSize ExtraSmall -ImageName $Image | Add-AzureProvisioningConfig -Linux -LinuxUser $LinuxUser -Password $AdminPassword | Add-AzureDataDisk -CreateNew -DiskSizeInGB 50 -DiskLabel "Datadisk1" -LUN 0 | New-AzureVM -ServiceName "MySvc1"

This command creates a new Linux virtual machine configuration with operating system disk, data disk and provisioning configuration. This configuration is then used to create a new virtual machine.
