Description

The Set-AzureVMDiagnosticsExtension cmdlet configures the Microsoft Azure Diagnostics extension on a virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1: Create a virtual machine with Azure Diagnostics extension applied

PS C:\> $VM = New-AzureVMConfig -Name $VM -InstanceSize Small -ImageName $VMImage
PS C:\> $VM = Add-AzureProvisioningConfig -VM $VM -AdminUsername $Username -Password $Password -Windows
PS C:\> $VM = Set-AzureVMDiagnosticsExtension -DiagnosticsConfigurationPath $Config_Path -Version "1.*" -VM $VM -StorageContext $Storage_Context
PS C:\> New-AzureVM -Location $Location -ServiceName $Service_Name -VM $VM

These commands enable the Azure Diagnostics extension on a virtual machine.

Example 2: Enable an Azure Diagnostics extension on an existing virtual machine

PS C:\> $VM = Get-AzureVM -ServiceName $Service_Name -Name $VM_Name
PS C:\> $VM_Update = Set-AzureVMDiagnosticsExtension -DiagnosticsConfigurationPath $Config_Path -Version "1.*" -VM $VM -StorageContext $Storage_Context
PS C:\> Update-AzureVM -ServiceName $Service_Name -Name $VM_Name -VM $VM_Update.VM

The first command uses the Get-AzureVM cmdlet to get a virtual machine.

The second command uses the Set-AzureVMDiagnosticsExtension cmdlet to update the virtual machine configuration to include the Azure Diagnostics extension.

The final command applies the updated configuration to the virtual machine.
