Powershell Script to create Snapshot from VM and move to storage account

I believe you have enjoyed my last script related to VM snapshot creation . Sometime we work futher then that . it may be that you have to move those snapshot to a specific storage account . This script  will help you to do that . Again I have tried my level best to make a super simple script that make your life easier . This script can work with multiple VM also . Before run this script you need collect few information . 

Information  that you need to run this script :

  1. List of VM name .
  2. Storage account name .
  3. Container name where you want to move snapshot’s .

Have a look of entire script and update this details . Then run the script .

#Please type you all VM names over here .
