Runbooks are very powerful tools which allow you to automate PowerShell commands which need to be run at different times.  One of the problems that I've run across when dealing with Azure Runbooks is that there is no way to use the same script on prem during testing and the same script when...

Site to Site VPNs no longer needed for vNets in the same Azure region

Denny Cherry Denny Cherry Profile: Denny Cherry

Up until August 1st if you had 2 vNets in the same Azure region (USWest for example) you needed to create a site to site VPN between them in order for the VMs within each vNet to be able to see each other.  I'm happy to report that this is no longer the case (it is still the default...

This may come as shocking news to some, but Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL DB (Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL DB, SQL Azure Database, or whatever name you know it as) are very much not the same thing.  They may look similar and they may act similar, but they are very much not the same...

When working in the Azure portal finding task information when performing tasks against an object that is related to an object can be tough.  Before I dive into the how, let me demystify what I'm talking about a little more, as that first statement is a little vague.  In the case of my example I...

Recently I was trying to make a drive bigger on an Azure VM by simply using Set-AzureOSDisk PowerShell commandlet (and the -ResizedSizeInGB switch). The problem is that this command is asynchronous meaning that it tells you that it's done, even if it hasn't finished yet. The problem with this,...
