Examples

Example 1: Remove a data disk from a virtual machine

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

The second command removes the data disk named disk3 from 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:\> Remove-AzureVMDataDisk -VM $VirtualMachine -Name "disk3" 
PS C:\> Update-AzureVM -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup11" -Name "VirtualMachine07" -VM $VirtualMachine
