- Scaling Resource Tagging in Azure: A Configurable Solution for Multiple Subscriptions and Tags
Managing resources in the cloud can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to organizing and grouping your resources effectively. Azure tags are an essential part of Azure resource management, allowing for easy identification and grouping of resources. However, applying tags to multiple resources across different subscriptions can be daunting, especially if you’re doing it manually. If you’re looking for a scalable and configurable solution to manage resource tags across multiple Azure subscriptions, then this blog post is for you! In this article, “Scaling Resource Tagging in Azure: A Configurable Solution for Multiple Subscriptions and Tags” we’ll introduce you to an approach that enables technical architects and developers to reliably tag resources in Microsoft’s cloud computing platform using configuration as code settings. This approach facilitates resource tagging consistency within an organization’s Azure tenant, allowing IT administrators to define and update their services through custom configurations that are easy to set up, audit, scale out when needed, and maintain over time without additional help.
Are you tired of spending hours on routine tasks in Azure? As a system administrator or developer, you know that time is precious. But what if we told you that there’s a superhero that can save you time and effort? That’s right – we’re talking about PowerShell workflow automation in Azure! With just a few lines of code, you can streamline your tasks, deploy and manage resources, and monitor performance. And the best part? We’re here to share some insider tips, tricks, and scripts that will help you unleash the power of PowerShell automation in Azure. So get ready to supercharge your workflow and say goodbye to tedious tasks!
This blog discusses Azure security design and consideration for securing access to Azure Services.
In this blog, we will discuss how to troubleshoot the user-defined route in Azure. I have faced this issue in one of my projects. Typically when you want to test the traffic from a specific VM you will have to log in to the VM and see the output of the Traceroute command and it becomes cumbersome if you have so many routes because now you have to log in to each VM to verify whether the routes are working correctly or not. Another problem is that even if the routes are not working traceroute will not show why it is not working. So if you do not know why routes are not working you can not fix anything. To overcome this issue I wrote a small script that can be used as it is by changing the parameters and it will display the connectivity status (success or failure) if there is an issue then this script will also show what is causing that issue.
Recently I have come across a requirement to design the Azure landing zone for a customer who wants to migrate their workloads from on-premise to Azure. This article explains the best practices implemented in Azure landing zone design.
Suppose you built a large environment in Azure with more than 1000 Virtual machines. Now we need to provide the Virtual Machine details to the customer(or raise the SNOW ticket) and it is very difficult to collect each VM detail manually from Azure Portal. Also, there can be another use case if you want to verify the VMs to compare with each other to ensure all the VMs are created the same way. For example, the Cache setting for all the VMs should be Read /Write. You may also want to grab details of all the data disks and OS disks and their size, name info, and cache settings. This script grabs all the info in one shot and exports it into a CSV file for further manipulation.Let’s dive in.
In this blog, we will discuss a real-time scenario of deploying software on multiple Linux and Windows Virtual machines simultaneously. Suppose you have 500 virtual machines both Windows and Linux and you want to push the software to these virtual machines. Obviously, it is not a workable solution to perform the manual installation on these 500 VMs. But there is good news that Azure provides a custom script extension for remote command execution. Let’s learn how to use it?
In this blog, I will share the script to retrieve the Azure resources inside the Azure subscription. This script iterates through each resource group inside an Azure subscription and retrieves each resource name resource type and resource tag and dumps the information inside a CSV file. So let’s dive in.
Power BI service allows connectivity thru PowerBI Gateway in case you do not want to expose the on-premise data sources. Power BI Gateway can be installed on a server /VM deployed in the on-premise environment. Now If you deploy the Enterprise gateway in the On-Premise network your network team may not be happy and they will not open the firewall to expose the Enterprise Gateway to connect to the Internet. But do not worry and here is the good news, in order for the Enterprise gateway to function properly it requires certain ports to be open. Let’s learn how to configure the environment so it is secure.
I have published my last blog to describe to PowerShell script to register the App in the Azure AD, In this blog, we will discuss the PowerShell script to assign the necessary permissions for the App.
Recently I came across a situation where I was supposed to register an App in Azure Ad for multiple Environments, I felt it to be very cumbersome to do it using the Azure UI interface so I thought to create a script for it.
Point-to-site connectivity is the recommended way to connect to the Azure Virtual network from a remote location for example while traveling or working from the home office. In this blog post, we will learn how to set up Point-to-site connectivity.
