Different method to create azure virtual machine

Brass Contributor

am new to this forum.


want to clarify whether my understanding is correct on creating azure VM through diff method

1) create a VM from azure portal

2) create a VM through Powershell (without using visual studio or JSON)

3) create a json template and deploy json template through power shell

4) create and deploy virtual machine through visual studio console.


is this correct ? if yes, what is the recommanded method to create a azure VM ?

Yes. My preferred method is Powershell. I have my own scripts with variables i can change when needed. 

thank you.


One question on using VB. if i have jason template ready with me for VM deployment and parameter then i do not need VB to be installed, right ? i can simply edit json file and use it in to powershell command.


is my unerstanding is correct ?
