Starting and stopping Azure VMs with Azure PowerShell

This posting is ~5 years years old. You should keep this in mind. IT is a short living business. This information might be outdated.

To be honest: I’m lazy and I have a wife and two kids. Therefore I have to minimize the costs of my lab. I have a physical lab at the office and some VMs running on Microsoft Azure. Azure is nice, because I only have to pay what I really use. And because I’m only paying the actual use, I start the VMs only when I need them. Inspired by this very handy Azure VM wakeup & shutdown script, I decided to write my own script (yes, I invented a wheel again…). Very simple, nothing fancy. Feel free to use and modify the script according to your needs.

    Hi Patrick

    By what method would I be able to make a .bat document that can duplicate a record from a sky blue server to my machine?
