Create a virtual machine with the Azure CLI with a custom script to install IIS
This script creates an Azure Virtual Machine running Windows Server 2016, and uses the Azure Virtual Machine Custom Script Extension to install IIS. After running the script, you can access the default IIS website on the public IP address of the virtual machine.
To run this sample, install the latest version of the Azure CLI. To start, run
az login to create a connection with Azure.
Samples for the Azure CLI are written for the
bash shell. To run this sample in Windows PowerShell or Command Prompt, you may need to change
elements of the script.
If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.
Clean up deployment
Run the following command to remove the resource group, VM, and all related resources.
az group delete --name myResourceGroup --yes
