PowerShell script to initialize Azure subscription and storage account. http://manesh.me/2015/02/05/getting-started-with-microsoft-azure-powershell/
# Ref: http://manesh.me/2015/02/05/getting-started-with-microsoft-azure-powershell/
# Step 0: Define all variable values
$publishSettingsFile = "C:\Users\Manesh\Documents\AzureSubscriptions.publishsettings";
$location = "West US";

# Sometimes, you might have multiple MSDN subscriptions
# If someone else add you as a co-admin on their MSDN subscription etc.
# If so, choose the subscription Id option
$subscriptionId = $null;
# Sometimes, this account is created by someone else.
# So if the script fails, you might want to change this.

# Step 1: Import Azure Publish Settings File
Import-AzurePublishSettingsFile $publishSettingsFile
# Step 2: Set current subscription
