I was at the Azure Global Bootcamp last month where we built a number of Azure VMs and networks. We also configured load balancing and several other settings. When I came home, I thought that it would be much easier if we could manage endpoints, load balancers and network security groups via a GUI. So the end result is available on the TechNet Gallery. Please look at it and if you have any feedback please let me know.
When you start the tool, it discovers an already connected Azure subscription. If not, you can add one by using Add Azure Account.
You can then browse through your Cloud Services and VMs inside of the Cloud Services.
There is an overview of the VM you selected where you can quickly connect, stop, start or delete your VM. Be careful with the delete. The confirm doesn’t seem to work somehow, so it’s not included in the script. Only the last VM in the service will give a warning.
