How To Discover What Azure Virtual Machine Extensions Are Available By Region

Azure virtual machine extensions are small applications that can be used to perform post deployment configuration and automation tasks on Azure VM’s. For instance you might want to deploy a server role or amend configuration files using the Custom Script extension, apply configuration with the Azure DSC configuration extension or install an AV product. In this video Nick will take you through the process to find out what extensions are available in any Azure region using the Get-AzureRmVmImagePublisher, Get-AzureRmVMExtensionImageType and Get-AzureRmVMExtensionImage cmdlets. We’ll go through each command and finish the video by placing these commands into a simple function, so you can query for extensions without having to remember complex command lines.
