List details about Azure Virtual Machines such as Instance Size, IP Address, PowerState etc

The following article will demonstrate how to gather details about your Azure VM’s via PowerShell commands.

First step is to verify you are in the correct Azure Subscription. To connect to the correct subscription you want to report on you can do the following:

PS C:\> Select-AzureSubscription

cmdlet Select-AzureSubscription at command pipeline position 1 Supply values for the following parameters: (Type !? for Help.) SubscriptionName: Subscription4

Now the commands you run will run against “subscription4″ instead of the default subscription. Substitute your subscription name for Subscription4 of course.

Once you are in the correct subscription you can run the following command. This will bring back the following values.

Name, IpAddress, DNSName, InstanceSize, PowerState

C:\> Get-AzureVM | Get-AzureVM | Format-List Name, IpAddress, DNSName, InstanceSize, PowerState > c:\files\servers.txt

Name : Server1
IpAddress : 10.1.2.3
