Posted: November 30, 2016 in Azure

Create empty file called template.json and paste the following code:

},
"osDisk": {

},
"caching": "ReadWrite",
"createOption": "FromImage"

"diskSizeGB": "100",
"lun": 0,
"vhd": {

},
"networkProfile": {

"bootDiagnostics": {
"enabled": "true",
"storageUri": "[reference(resourceId('Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/', variables('storageAccountName'))).primaryEndpoints.blob]"
}
}
}
}
],
}

After declaring schema,In Parameters section we define parameters:username/password,public DNS name

"parameters": {
"adminUsername": {
"type": "string",
"metadata": {
"description": "Username for the Virtual Machine."
}
},
"adminPassword": {
"type": "securestring",
"metadata": {
"description": "Password for the Virtual Machine."
}
},
"dnsLabelPrefix": {
"type": "string",
"metadata": {
"description": "Unique DNS Name for the Public IP used to access the Virtual Machine."
}

Then we specified OS version:

"windowsOSVersion": {
"type": "string",
"defaultValue": "2016-Datacenter",
"allowedValues": [
"2008-R2-SP1",
"2012-Datacenter",
"2012-R2-Datacenter",
"2016-Nano-Server",
"2016-Datacenter-with-Containers",
"2016-Datacenter"
],
"metadata": {
"description": "The Windows version for the VM. This will pick a fully patched image of this given Windows version."
}
}

In next section we specify StorageAccountName,VM NIC,subnet,public IP,VM name and Virtual Network name

"variables": {
"storageAccountName": "mystorageaccount112016",
"nicName": "myVMNic",
"addressPrefix": "10.0.0.0/16",
"subnetName": "Subnet",
"subnetPrefix": "10.0.0.0/24",
"publicIPAddressName": "myPublicIP",
"vmName": "MyAzureVM",
"virtualNetworkName": "MyVNET",
"subnetRef": "[resourceId('Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/subnets', variables('virtualNetworkName'), variables('subnetName'))]"
},

Then Storage Account Type:

"sku": {
"name": "Standard_LRS"
},

Optionally,we can set internal IP:

"properties": {
"ipConfigurations": [
{
"name": "ipconfig1",
"properties": {
"privateIPAllocationMethod": "Static",
"privateIPAddress": "10.0.0.5",
"publicIPAddress": {
"id": "[resourceId('Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses',variables('publicIPAddressName'))]"
},
"subnet": {
"id": "[variables('subnetRef')]"
}
}
}
]
}

VM disk configuration:

"dataDisks": [
{
"name": "datadisk1",
"diskSizeGB": "100",
"lun": 0,
"vhd": {
"uri": "[concat(reference(resourceId('Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/', variables('storageAccountName'))).primaryEndpoints.blob, 'vhds/datadisk1.vhd')]"
},
"createOption": "Empty"
}
]

Now create second empty file,param.json and paste code below:

{
"$schema": "https://schema.management.azure.com/schemas/2015-01-01/deploymentTemplate.json",
"contentVersion": "1.0.0.0",
"parameters": {
"adminUserName": { "value": "batman" },
"adminPassword": { "value": "Password1234" },
"dnsLabelPrefix": { "value": "server-201601"}
}
}

Here we specified admin username/password and public DNS name

Create Resource Group where new VM will be stored:

New-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name rg -Location 'west europe'

Deploy VM:

New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment -ResourceGroupName 'rg' -TemplateFile 'c:\template.json' -TemplateParameterFile 'c:\param.json'
