Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-AzureVMNetworkInterface [-VM] <PSVirtualMachine> [-Id] <String> [[-Primary]] [-Profile <AzureProfile> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Add-AzureVMNetworkInterface cmdlet adds a network interface to a virtual machine. You can add an interface when you create a virtual machine or add one to an existing virtual machine.

Parameters

-Id<String>

Specifies the ID of a network interface to add to a virtual machine. To obtain a network interface, use the Get-AzureNetworkInterface cmdlet.

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

Examples

Example 1: Add a network interface to a new virtual machine

The first command creates a virtual machine object, and then stores it in the $VirtualMachine variable. The command assigns a name and size to the virtual machine.

The second command adds a network interface to the virtual machine stored in $VirtualMachine.

$VirtualMachine = New-AzureVMConfig -VMName "VirtualMachine07" -VMSize "Standard_A1" 
PS C:\> Add-AzureVMNetworkInterface -VM $VirtualMachine -Id "/subscriptions/46fc8ea4-2de6-4179-8ab1-365da4121af4/resourceGroups/contoso/providers/Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/sshNIC"

Example 2: Add a network interface to an existing virtual machine

The first command gets the virtual machine named VirtualMachine07 by using the Get-AzureVM cmldet. The command stores the virtual machine in the $VirtualMachine variable.

The second command adds a network interface to the virtual machine stored in $VirtualMachine.

The final command updates the state of the virtual machine stored in $VirtualMachine in ResourceGroup11.

$VirtualMachine = Get-AzureVM -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup11" -Name "VirtualMachine07"
PS C:\> Add-AzureVMNetworkInterface -VM $VirtualMachine -Id "/subscriptions/46fc8ea4-2de6-4179-8ab1-365da4121af4/resourceGroups/contoso/providers/Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/sshNIC"
PS C:\> Update-AzureVM -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup11" -Name " VirtualMachine07" -VM $VirtualMachine
