In this blog post, I will show you how I create an Azure virtual machine using Azure PowerShell using 5 lines of code.
About the code
The five lines of code create the following:
- Create a new Azure Resource Group.
- Create a local user for the VM
- Set the password for the local user.
- Create a Linux VM called VMDOCKERHOST in the South East Asia region.
- Configure the VM to use the B1ls instance size.
Run the Code
To run code, run the five line and you are done.
In my case, I am using Cloud Shell.
#Create RG New-AzResourceGroup -Name rg-dev-linux -Location southeastasia #SET USERNAME $VMUser = "vmadmin" #SET PASSWORD $VMpassword = ConvertTo-SecureString "PASSWORD" -AsPlainText -Force $Credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ($VMUser, $VMpassword); #Deploy VM New-AzVm -image CentOS -size Standard_B1ls -ResourceGroupName "rg-dev-linux" -Name "VMDOCKERHOST" -Location "Southeastasia" -OpenPorts 22 -Credential $Credential
Success! You're on the list.
