PowerShell is an alternate option in Azure to execute commands, such as creating a resource group or virtual network. Powershell is required if you plan to create a resource group, virtual networks and virtual subnetworks via Powershell. These commands are not required if you are using Azure Portal to execute these commands.  For details on PowerShell, refer to the PowerShell documentation. For executing comments via Azure Portal, refer to Deploying a SBC SWe Lite via Azure Marketplace.

Log into PowerShell

PowerShell is an option used to execute various commands when deploying SBC SWe Lite via Azure. Use Azure CLI PowerShell module or Azure RM PowerShell module to login into PowerShell as follows:

  1. Install Azure CLI PowerShell module or Azure RM PowerShell module on your laptop.
  2. Login to Azure with PowerShell:

    ### Azure CLI ###
    az login
    
    ### Azure RM ###
    Connect-AzureRmAccount

Create a Resource Group

Create a Resource Group via PowerShell as follows: 

  1. Access PowerShell. Refer to the PowerShell documentation.
  2. Run one of the following commands (per Azure CLI PowerShell module or Azure RM PowerShell module):

    ### Azure CLI ###
    az group create -l "westus2" -n "SWeLite-RG"
    
    ### Azure RM ###
    New-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name "SWeLite-RG" -Location westus2

Create a Virtual Network and Virtual Subnet

  1. Access PowerShell. Refer to the PowerShell documentation.
  2. Run one of the following commands (per Azure CLI Powershell module or Azure RM PowerShell module):

    ### Azure CLI ###
    az network vnet create -g "SWeLite-RG" -n "SWeLite-Network" --address-prefix 10.0.0.0/16 --subnet-name MySubnet1 --subnet-prefix 10.0.0.0/24
    
    ### Azure RM ###
    $Subnets = New-AzureRmVirtualNetworkSubnetConfig -Name "MySubnet1" -AddressPrefix "10.0.0.0/24"
    New-AzureRmVirtualNetwork -ResourceGroupName "SWeLite-RG" -Name "SWeLite-Network" -Location westus2 -Subnet $Subnets

Create Additional Virtual Subnet

  1. Access PowerShell. Refer to PowerShell documentation.
  2. Run one of the following commands (per Azure CLI or Azure RM):

    ### Azure CLI ###
    az network vnet subnet create -g "SWeLite-RG" --vnet-name "SWeLite-Network" -n "MySubnet2" --address-prefix 10.0.1.0/24
    
    ### Azure RM ###
    $Subnets = New-AzureRmVirtualNetworkSubnetConfig -Name "MySubnet2" -AddressPrefix "10.0.1.0/24"
    Set-AzureRmVirtualNetwork -ResourceGroupName "SWeLite-RG" -Name "SWeLite-Network" -Location westus2 -Subnet $Subnets

Create SWe Lite VM

Perform these steps via PowerShell:

  1. Access PowerShell. Refer to PowerShell documentation.
  2. Run the following commands (per Azure CLI PowerShell module):

    $ResourceGroup = "SWeLite-RG"
    $VirtualNetwork = "SWeLite-Network"
    $Image = "ribboncommunications:ribbon_sbc_swe-lite:ribbon_sbc_swe-lite:8.0.0"
    
    ### Azure CLI ###
    az network nic create --resource-group $ResourceGroup --name "swelite800-1-1" --vnet-name $VirtualNetwork --subnet MySubnet1
    az network nic create --resource-group $ResourceGroup --name "swelite800-1-2" --vnet-name $VirtualNetwork --subnet MySubnet2
    az vm create -g $ResourceGroup -n "swelite800-1" --image $Image --size "Standard_B1ms" --generate-ssh-keys --nics "swelite800-1-1" "swelite800-1-2"
    
    

Assign Additional Network Interface

Perform these steps via PowerShell:

  1. Access PowerShell. Refer to PowerShell documentation.
  2. Run the following commands (per Azure CLI PowerShell module):

    $ResourceGroup = "SWeLite-RG"
    $VirtualNetwork = "SWeLite-Network"
    
    ### Azure CLI ###
    az network nic create --resource-group $ResourceGroup --name "swelite-2" --vnet-name $VirtualNetwork --subnet pkt0
    az vm nic add -g $ResourceGroup --vm-name "swelite" --nics "swelite-2"
