Hi,

I hope I'm writing on to a right thread, I tried the above script to Start / Stop Multiple VM Simultaneously but wasn't succeeded.

I have multiple Resource Groups (20+) and each Resource Group has VMs running, I was looking PS script where I can use to turn those all VMs on & off in single go (Simultaneously).

I have a PS script running where it start & stops one after one for all Resource Groups.

I'm looking for a solution where I can turn on & off all VMs in one Subscription or Tenant simultaneously.

Thanks,
Gulab Pasha

Hi,
There is any way to pass VM name in csv file and stop and start vm.
Example :

#Import VMs listed within CSV
$VMs = Import-csv "D:\Az_Powershell_13_06_20\VMstart-05.Csv"

$VMs | foreach-object {

Start-azureRMVM -Name $VM.Name -force

}

Absolutely.
Something like this where;

  • myVMs.csv contains a column named vmname with your VM names

$vm_list = Import-Csv -Path .\myVMs.csv

foreach ($vm in $vm_list) {
Start-azureRMVM -Name $vm.vmname -force
}
