Remove VM and Associated Resource Powershell

Greetings to all unbelievable students across globe . Allow me to present one of the the most useful script for production use . We need to delete VMs and all associated resources like disks+NIC for various reason . But most of the time we just delete the VM and forget to delete VHDs or NICs . That create problem in future and disk cost money  . This script is a ultimate solution for VM deletion . Beauty of this script is you dont have to mention VM name at the beginning . Script will prompt you for the input . Type the VM name , sit back and relax . Script will collect all required information from the VM name and will pass in the script when needed . You can run this script directly in production . It will not interraapt anything unless there is any dependency with VM .  

Only limitation of this script is this script will work with only one VM at a single time . If you want to delete multiple VM at a single time please mail  me. 

Few point to keep in mind :

  • Please run Powershell ISE in admin mode and copy and paste this script in scripting environment .
  • Make sure you have installed and imported AzureRM module.
  • You should have access to fetch VM details in production . I am owner of my EA subscription .
