Given my affinity towards containers & azure, it will not come as a surprise when I say I published a small container from which you can launch AzureRM commands!
- Docker Hub (build) : https://hub.docker.com/r/kvaes/docker-powershell-azure/
- GitHub (source) : https://github.com/kvaes/docker-powershell-azure
First of all, we’ll launch the container ;
docker run -ti kvaes/docker-powershell-azure
Next up you do the device login ;
And check out which commands are available…
As you notice, the current preview release is quite limited in available commands. Expect more to be added over time off course!
- Powershell on Linux works
- The AzureRM module is in preview, and limited in commands
- It all works inside a container too! 😀
This week I wanted to have a simple slave machine that I could use for our CI/CD integration of our ARM templates. Here I was thinking of leveraging an A0 machine (10-11€/month) with Windows Nano on it, as this doesn’t need the biggest footprint. So out I went to deploy!
When you want to deploy a nano system, just look it up like you would with (for example) a windows 2012 / 2016 machine… Type “nano” in the search bar.
I’m not going to elaborate on the deployment, as this is pretty straightforward and like any system deployment.
