Function ForceShutdownVM($virtualMachine)
{
Write-Host "Looking at host" $_.Name -ForegroundColor Yellow
if($_.Status -ne "StoppedDeallocated")
{
if($_.InstanceName -Like "*_IN_*")
{
Write-Host "`tThis is a Cloud Service and requires deletion to save run costs." -ForegroundColor Red
}
else
{
Write-Host "`tForcing Shutdown of VM" -ForegroundColor Red
Stop-AzureVM -Name $_.Name -Force
}
}
else
{
Write-Host "`tVM is already off" -ForegroundColor Green
}
