I was recently asked to quickly audit a customer’s environment for all running VMs. I quickly reached for my PowerShell toolbox and put together the following script.
In the example below I have used the table grid views available. It would be just as easy to push all this info to a csv file. For swiftness this was my approach, I’d be very interested to hear from the gurus out there to see what your preference is and how you would do this.
Remember there is always a better way, just don’t keep that to yourself!
I have a number of customers implementing HUB benefit for their IaaS VMs in Azure. In all cases to date this is a rebuild or new build as part of a migration. It works very well, if licensed, you should definitely be looking at this option to drive down costs.
