Get-AzureRmLocation

Gets the resource types and the Azure data center locations that support them.

Syntax


Get-AzureRmLocation [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-AzureRmLocation cmdlet gets the Azure data center locations that support each resource type. This cmdlet returns all resource types and locations.

A resource is a user-managed entity, such as a website, database server, or database. When you create a resource, you must specify a location. Not every location supports all resource types. Before you create your resources, use this cmdlet to find a location for each resource.

Azure resources are members of resource groups, which is a collection of resources that you deploys as a unit. A resource group has a location, but the group and its members do not have to be in the same location.

Parameters

Outputs
