Update-AzureRmVM

Updates the state of an Azure virtual machine.

Important

Because Az PowerShell modules now have all the capabilities of AzureRM PowerShell modules and more, we'll retire AzureRM PowerShell modules on 29 February 2024.

To avoid service interruptions, update your scripts that use AzureRM PowerShell modules to use Az PowerShell modules by 29 February 2024. To automatically update your scripts, follow the quickstart guide.

Description

The Update-AzureRmVM cmdlet updates the state of an Azure virtual machine to the state of a virtual machine object.

Examples

Example 1: Update a virtual machine

PS C:\> Update-AzureRmVM -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup11" -VM $VirtualMachine

This command updates the virtual machine, $VirtualMachine, in ResourceGroup11. The command updates it by using the virtual machine object stored in the $VirtualMachine variable. To obtain a virtual machine object, use the Get-AzureRmVM cmdlet.

Parameters

-AsJob

Run cmdlet in the background and return a Job to track progress.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AssignIdentity

Specify the system assigned identity for the virtual machine.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter

-Id

Specifies the Resource ID of the virtual machine.

Type:String
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IdentityId

Specifies the list of user identities associated with the virtual machine scale set. The user identity references will be ARM resource ids in the form: '/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{resourceGroupName}/providers/Microsoft.ManagedIdentity/identities/{identityName}'

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IdentityType

The type of identity used for the virtual machine. Currently, the only supported type is 'SystemAssigned', which implicitly creates an identity.

Type:Nullable<T>[ResourceIdentityType]
Accepted values:SystemAssigned, UserAssigned, SystemAssignedUserAssigned, None
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-OsDiskWriteAccelerator

Specifies whether WriteAccelerator should be enabled or disabled on the OS disk.
