PowerShell Script for Assigning Public IP to Azure Virtual Machine


Recently the azure virtual machines provisioned with ‘Resource Manager/Classic‘ deployment model is provisioned with Virtual IP & dynamic IP except Public IP address. Public IP address is necessary for accessing services deployed on VM from local browser.

For example, in Azure Linux VM, if you provision Apache Hadoop/Hortonworks Data Platform/Cloudera Hadoop Distribution , you may need to access the hadoop services from local browser in those addresses like hdfs service : http://<ip address of VM>:50070, http://<ip address of VM>:50075 , MapReduce Service http://<ip address of VM>:8080 etc.

In order to assign public ip for an azure Linux VM , you need to execute the following powershell script.

Get-AzureVM -ServiceName ‘azfilestorage’ -Name ‘azfilestorage’ | Set-AzurePublicIP -PublicIPName ‘linuxvmip’ | Update-AzureVM

Next, update the VM with SSH Port 22 so that , the VM can be accessed through SSH.

Get-AzureVM -Name ‘azfilestorage’ -ServiceName ‘azfilestorage’ | Set-AzureEndpoint -Protocol tcp -Name ‘SSH’ -PublicPort 22 -LocalPort 22 | Update-AzureVM

PS

 

Next, you can check the public IP address on Azure Portal under ‘IP Address’ section of Azure Virtual Machine like as the screenshot.
