Adding a Public IP to an Existing Azure ARM VM

If you are not running a jump host in your environment I find from time to time that I need to add a Public IP to a NIC and connect to my virtual machine.

PowerShell is by far the easiest way to complete this task. The small script below outlines how to do this.

# New-AzurePublicRmIAddress creates the new IP - Run this first.

new-azurermpublicIPAddress -Name testip -ResourceGroupName wpbackup -AllocationMethod Static -Location "Southeast Asia"

# Set the variables but getting the properties you need
$nic = Get-AzurermNetworkInterface -ResourceGroupName Nameof ResourceGroup -Name NameofNIC
$pip = Get-AzurermPublicIPAddress -ResourceGroupName wpbackup -Name testip

# Finally set the IP address against the NIC
Set-AzureRmNetworkInterface -NetworkInterface $nic

  1. Although this adds the PIP to the network interface its not adding it to the VM.

    Any ideas how you would enumerate the NIC attached to a particular VM and then add the PIP to that Nic?

    1. If the NIC is a property of the VM adding the Public IP property to it should make it available. It should be the same process in the portal. It is however a while since I have reviewed.
