Detailed Description

This topic describes the cmdlet in the 0.8.10 version of the Microsoft Azure PowerShell module. To get the version of the module you're using, in the Azure PowerShell console, type (Get-Module -Name Azure).Version.

The New-AzureQuickVM cmdlet sets the configuration for a new virtual machine and creates the virtual machine. You can create a new Azure service for the virtual machine by specifying either the Location or AffinityGroup parameters, or deploy the new virtual machine into an existing service.

Parameters

-AdminUsername<String>

Specifies the name for the administrative account to create.

-CustomDataFile<String>

Specifies the name of a data file. This cmdlet base-64 encodes the contents of the file and sends it with the provisioning configuration information. The file must be less than 64KB or the Azure API will not accept the request. On Windows, this data ends up in %SYSTEMDRIVE%\AzureData\CustomData.bin as a binary file. On Linux, this data is passed to the virtual machine by means of the ovf-env.xml file, which is copied to the /var/lib/waagent directory during provisioning. The agent also places the base-64 encoded data in /var/lib/waagent/CustomData during provisioning.

Examples

Example 1

This example creates a new Windows virtual machine in an existing service from an image. (Use Get-AzureVMImage to get a list of images.)


C:\PS>New-AzureQuickVM –Windows –ServiceName "MySvc1" –name "MyWinVM1" –ImageName $image –Password $adminPasswd 

Example 2

This example creates a new Linux virtual machine from an image, and creates a new service to host it.


C:\PS> New-AzureQuickVM –Linux –ServiceName "MySvc2" –name "MyLxVM1" –ImageName $image –LinuxUser $user –Password $adminPasswd –Location $dclocation 

Example 3

This example gets a list of data center locations and a list of virtual machine images, and then creates a new large Windows virtual machine and a new service.


C:\PS> $dclocations = Get-AzureLocationC:\PC> $images = Get-AzureVMImageC:\PS> New-AzureQuickVM –Windows –InstanceSize "Large" –ServiceName "MySvc3" –name "MyWinVM1" –ImageName $images[4].imagename –Password $adminPasswd –location $dclocations[0].name
