Downloading Automation Scripts From An Azure Virtual Machine

In this post I will show how to download the automation scripts that Azure provides when you create a new virtual machine in Azure.  This is great for PowerShell scripting or if you want to interact with your VM in Visual Studio.  You don't have to start from scratch.

Here are the steps to get the automation scripts for your VM in Azure:

1. Log into the Azure portal at https://portal.azure.com
2. Click on "Virtual Machines"






















3. A list of virtual machine instance will be displayed,  I will choose the windows instance I created earlier.  Obviously yours will look different depending on what you named your VM.













4. Under the "Settings" section select "Automation script"

6.  Once you downloaded the file and unzip it you should see the following files
