    Getting Azure VM Remote Desktop File in PowerShell

    • 0 Comments

    I often just need the Remote Desktop file of a VM  to work. For that it takes a longer time to go to the portal and download. Rather I prefer the PowerShell way of doing it.

    $vm = "WGTFS2015"
    $service = "WGTFS2015"
    $file = "C:\Azure\WGTFS2015.rdp"

    Get-AzureRemoteDesktopFile -Name $vm -ServiceName $service -LocalPath $file


    Invoke-Item $file

    How to create Shared Access Signature (SAS) for Blob and Container

    • 0 Comments

    There are few ways by which you could created Shared Access Signature (SAS) for Azure Storage Blob or Container. This one is probably the easiest.

    1. Download and install Azure Storage Explorer from http://azurestorageexplorer.codeplex.com/

    2. Then add the storage account name and key

    image

    3. Then select a container or Blob and select “Security”

    image

    4. Then click on the “Shared Access Signatures” tab and choose appropriate options like dates, actions etc click on “Generate Signature”. This will create and URL with SAS to be used as appropriate.

    Moving TFS 2015 VM to Azure as an Image and Creating Machine from It

    • 0 Comments

    As I had to use TFS 2015 and the quickest option was to get the ready VM by Visual Studio ALM team and push it to Azure. This is what I did

    1. Created a VM in Azure

    2. Downloaded the TFS VM as described in Blog http://vsalmvm.azurewebsites.net/alm-vm-2015-available-now/

    3. You must use Free Download Manager described in the blog.

    4. Created a storage account and a container. Made the container as Public. We can change it using Azure Storage Explorer http://azurestorageexplorer.codeplex.com/

    5. Then connected Azure PowerShell

    6. Ran the below powershell command

    Add-AzureVhd -Destination "here is the blog URL including the name as .vhd" -LocalFilePath "local path where the VHD is extracted" -NumberOfUploaderThreads 32

    7. Then used the OLD Azure management portal and added the image from Image section under Virtual Machine section

    image

    8. Then created the VM from Old portal and selected the image from my image

    image

    You are done. Now your TFS VM runs on Azure’s giant data center. Thanks.

    PowerShell why should you learn and how must start

    • 0 Comments

    If you really care about performing Automation in your System dominated by Microsoft products its high time that you start thinking seriously about PowerShell. Now since you are forced to use PowerShell a many of you might already have started but getting difficulties of interpreting the way it is written. Or you are writing in a most naïve way which has better representation. As this is vast you are not expected to remember ever bit of it but a methodical approach towards basic grammar is better that always dependent on search engine. There is a free Microsoft Virtual Academy course focusing just that. It demonstrates how must must explore PowerShell and make it more efficient without spending time like an amateur. This is from none other than the father of PowerShell who designed, envisioned and implemented this amazing piece of technology,

    Treat it as your *must to have* course if you care about PowerShell

    Azure PowerShell Know the differences

    • 0 Comments

    There are a bunch of confusing PowerShell commands which looks the same by their name.

    Add-AzureDataDisk : Adds a data disk to a virtual machine.

    The Add-AzureDataDisk cmdlet adds a new or existing data disk to an Azure virtual machine object. Use the CreateNew 
    parameter to create a new data disk that has a specified size and label. Use the Import parameter to attach an 
    existing disk from the image repository. Use the ImportFrom parameter to attach an existing disk from a blob in a 
    storage account. You can specify the host-cache mode of the attached data disk.

    Add-AzureDisk: Adds a disk to the Azure disk repository.

    The Add-AzureDisk cmdlet adds a disk to the Azure disk repository in the current subscription. This cmdlet can add a 
    system disk or a data disk. To add a system disk, specify an operating system type by using the OS parameter.

    Add-AzureVMImage: Adds a new operating system image or a new virtual machine image to the image repository.

    The Add-AzureVMImage cmdlet adds a new operating system image or a new virtual machine image to the image repository.
    The image is a generalized operating system image, using either Sysprep for Windows or, for Linux, using the
    appropriate tool for the distribution.

    Add-AzureVhd: Uploads a VHD file from an on-premise machine to a blob in a cloud storage account in Azure.

    The Add-AzureVhd cmdlet uploads on premise Virtual hard disk (VHD) images to a blob storage account as fixed .vhd
    images. It has parameters to configure the upload process such as specifying the number of uploader threads that will
    be used or overwriting a blob which already exists in the specified destination URI. For on premise VHD images,
    patching scenario is also supported so that diff disk images can be uploaded without having to upload the already
    uploaded base images.  Shared Access Signature (SAS) URI is also supported.

    New Improved Blog Editor

    • 0 Comments

    Since the support for Live Writer was missing in Windows 10 I was heavily impacted. I am a blogger who is bit lazy and the Live Writer was just a perfect fit for me. Like many other things it was just like typing in word. You don't need to worry about the place to keep images, do the modification for image appearance, code snippet etc. A lot of stuff. It is like composing a book professionally. Too much for me. As an immediate plan I had decided to keep one machine as Windows 8 and did blogging from there. But as I move my places I was facing difficulties again while trying to continue on that same editor as this was not on my Laptop.

    And the good news is Live Writer is back again, http://openlivewriter.org/

    Manage your own Azure Subscription using PowerShell

    • 0 Comments

    You might be using a Dev/Test Azure account and to save the money you would like to Shutdown all the VMs. Since VMs are creating ad-hoc you don’t know the exact name. But you need to shut them down all. Let’s see

    1.       Open Azure PowerShell

    2.       Run Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile. This will ask login, log in using your Azure admin User Name and Password. A file will be downloaded with thumbprint. Save it to your hard disk.

    3.       Save the file to a location (eg, C:\Temp”)

    [Above step is one time]

     

    4.       Run Import-AzurePublishSettingsFile -PublishSettingsFile "C:\temp\AzureInternal.publishSettings"

    5.       Now set the default subscription

    Set-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName "Wriju Azure Internal Consumption"

    6.       Now shutdown all running VMs

    Get-AzureVM | Where { $_.Status -ne "StoppedDeallocated" } | Stop-AzureVM –Force

     

     

    For any issue Run

    Clear-AzureProfile

     

    Full Script (Save with an extension .ps1)

    #if any issue with old values run

    #Clear-AzureProfile

    #Download the File and save

    #Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile

     

    #Login from already stored certificate

    Import-AzurePublishSettingsFile -PublishSettingsFile "C:\temp\AzureInternal.publishSettings"

     

    #Set the default to your Subscription, you can use Get-AzureSubscription to find the name

    Set-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName "Wriju Azure Internal Consumption"

     

    #Shut down all the running VMs

    Get-AzureVM | Where { $_.Status -ne "StoppedDeallocated" } | Stop-AzureVM -Force

    Delete an Azure Active Directory

    • 0 Comments

    Problem

    When you try to delete an Active Directory you will go crazy because 

    image

    You will get an error

    image 

    You will clean all the users but will still get the below error.

    image 

    You try to clean up all the applications in the list of applications. You select “Applications my Company owns” and the do the filter, you will find no applications.

    image

    But when you select “Applications my company uses”  you will get

    image

    And you will not be able to delete this entry.

    Solution

    Here are the steps.

    First one Azure Active Directory PowerShell

    image

    If this is not available then please download it from Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell (64-bit version) http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=236297

    Go ahead and create an user called “delete”

    image

    image

    image

    image

    you need to login once to change the default password. So use https://login.microsoftonline.com/ and change the default password

    image

    This user is required login to the power shell.

    After we have the PowerShell we can run (optional)

    Import-Module MSOnline

    After that run

    Connect-MsolService

    This will prompt the login and here you will pass the Global Admin user name and password created above. You should not get any error here.

    image

    Then run Get-MsolServicePrincipal | Remove-MsolServicePrincipal

    You will get a lot of errors just ignore them

    image

    You are almost done. You need to go to portal and delete the user

    Now should be able to delete it.

    Tips for Microsoft Certification : Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions (70-532)

    • 2 Comments

    Life is a continuous learning process and equally unlearning. Especially in the cloud space where everything is changing rapidly. I have been working with Azure since its inception. Much before Azure came into the market and got announced in PDC 2009 (if I recall), I was accessing it with early access. Back then it was only three things 1. Cloud Service 2. Storage 3. Data Services (grandfather of Azure SQL Database). I have seen so many enhancements and SDK releases. One of the breaking changes I did work with ISVs when SDK 2.0 got introduced and everything broke. Though backend still used to support 1.x but with limited capacity. Everyone were asked to change the code and move to SDK 2.x. Starting from connection string structure to API calls all were completely new. It was tough time. People who was using REST had little relief. I have seen Azure Connect going into deathbed. What did not change is constant promise and rock solid backend. Azure was known as Windows Azure Platform, it had a dream to get established as PaaS, complete PaaS. That time industry was not ready for it. Now every vendors are exploring it. This is the future and world is moving.

    This is the right time, I thought myself tie into methodical learning beyond my day-to-day work. Because in my most of the interactions I have stopped working with Cloud Services for obvious reason. I don’t use OData URL for Azure Active Directory. So methodical study would help me get out of real scenario to curriculum based knowledge.

    I learned from folks who cleared this particular exam and gather a lot of tips. I am going to share them,

    Preparing for exam

    1. I have finished the book Exam Ref 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions. While I finish each chapter I noted things I don’t do hands on and reviewed. Then I did hands on. Also this book has tips which refers the Azure Documentation. You must note them and explore later.
    2. Since it is for developers you need basic development knowledge. This helps you to interpret the code written in book and understand. During my exam I found a lot of code which I have never written in my life, but think some of them required little common sense which you may earn from your development experience.
    3. Refer the website for what it covers in this exam. Updated information https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-in/exam-70-532.aspx
    4. This covers wide range of things also don’t cover some of the important services too. Know about it
      • Design and implement websites
      • Create and manage virtual machines
      • Design and implement cloud services
      • Design and implement a storage strategy
      • Manage application and network services
    5. There are practice tests available at the end of the study guide. Try to complete them as you finish each chapter.
    6. Make sure people leaving with you are prepared for this phase because sometimes you will behave like a zombie.

    Study Resources

    1. Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions
    2. Microsoft Azure Fundamentals
    3. Microsoft Azure Fundamentals: WebSites
    4. Exam Prep Session for Exam 70-532: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions from Microsoft Ignite
    5. Azure Friday videos
    6. Channel9 Microsoft Azure videos
    7. Official Azure Documentation at www.azure.com

    During the exam

    1. Never loose your patience
    2. Time matters
    3. If you are not sure of one thing skip it
    4. Review – it really matters
    5. Keep a tab on how many questions you are answering and you know how many in total. So balancing with the time would help.
    6. It is all about development so being a seasoned developer would help you guess things mainly in code area.

    Connecting on-premises SQL Server using Azure Service Bus Relay

    • 0 Comments

    This issue seems very common rather we can call it a requirement.

    Business Need. We have a Web Site (assume hosted in Azure). Now we have a SQL Server located locally behind the firewall. We cannot move this database outside of our data center. One of the easiest ways to use it through Service Bus Relay. To know more about Service Bus Relay please refer Azure Documentation at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/service-bus-relay-overview/ 

    Assumption. We assume that you know what is Service Bus Relay is and comfortable writing basic WCF Service with Data Access code using ADO.NET Entity Framework.

    Probable Solution. Our SQL Server Database in within on-premises data center. This SQL Server uses Windows Authentication. We would have a WCF Service created inside the same datacenter so that we can access it locally.

    Actual Code.

    Step 1: We will create a Service Bus namespace in our Azure Portal. Let us name is wgonpremsql. This would have following information,

    1. DNS wgonpremsql.servicebus.windows.net

    2. Root Manage Shared Access Key

    Step 2: Now we will create a Console Application to write our WCF Service.

    1. Add Microsoft Azure Service Bus NuGet package.

    2. Add the Interface for Service Contract

    image

    3. Add the ADO.NET EF Implementation

    image

    4. Implement the interface

    image

    5. Then add the configuration App.config

    image

    6. Self host

    image

    Step 3: Build the Web client.

    1. Add Microsoft Azure Service Bus NuGet package

    2. Add the following client configuration in Web.config

    image

    3. Copy the Interface as-is and keep in the project, including the same namespace

    image

    4. Initialize the Channel and call the method.

    image

    Now if you first run the Console and then run the web site, they would be able to communicate. You can check the Web Site in Azure Web App to see if it is inserting the data.

    Note:

    1. This is not a first-class data access code so none of the conventions are followed here. This is just to help kick start.

    2. Try not to do mistake in XML file. Because it is tough to debug if there is any issue.

    3. Remember Service Bus relay does not need any code to deploy, so for service bus your code will be deployed on-premises and hosted by you. Service bus would give you an endpoint that's it. Beauty!!!!

    4. Follow all possible security guidelines when implanting database access through Service Bus. Don't just rely on Shared Access Key.

    5. Service Bus Relay elegantly solves the Firewall issue. You neither need to expose your internal resource or open Firewall. For all possible Service Bus Port listing please refer here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/ee732535.aspx

    Top 10 things while migrating existing Web Applications to Azure

    • 1 Comments

    Microsoft Azure is another sophisticated hosting platform. For Web Sites where we have code written and wanted to move it to Azure we would obviously be facing some challenges if it as never designed for distributed environment,

    1. Should not use In-Proc Sessions. In Web development it is very common to use sessions. Sessions are for local web servers and this is not accessible outside of the server. So in distributed environment we can have same copy in different server with a load balancer sitting on top of it, user can land in any node depending on the availability etc. So if someone comes to Machine 1 and login to the portal and in next click he may land to another machine. So the session which could contain user name to be displayed in each page is now null.

    Candidate solution: Use distributed caching. Azure offers Redis Cache which is a managed caching service. Use Redis cache for more enterprise approach. Managed Cache and In Role cache are mainly for legacy approach. Redis is recommended. Here is, how to use Redis Cache for ASP.NET Session https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/web-sites-dotnet-session-state-caching/

    2. Avoid Windows Authentication in SQL Server. Windows Authentication and SQL Server is very common in Line of Business Applications. This allows easy access and setup. Sometimes we leverage AD security groups to allow access its backend SQL Databases. That solves additional coding effort while defining various level of security and access to db. However this may not work as is if you move your application to Azure in Platform as a service mode. 

    Candidate solution: Use SQL Authentication wherever possible. If you move your database to Azure SQL Database then you have only SQL Authentication available. Also you need to understand the limitations of Azure SQL Database and SQL Server (on-premises). Please refer the official documentation https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/data-management-azure-sql-database-and-sql-server-iaas/. Another alternative solution could be to use WCF service with Azure Service Bus to connect the on-premises database. For some pointer please refer my blog on how to connect on-premises SQL server using Azure Service Bus http://blogs.msdn.com/b/wriju/archive/2015/07/09/connecting-on-premises-sql-server-using-azure-service-bus-relay.aspx

    3. Replace Windows Service. Often Web Application uses Windows Service to perform backend activities like cleaning up system or database job. In Azure we have Windows Service when we have application hosted in a VM (Infrastructure as a Service). But in most cases this is not an elegant solution.

    Candidate solution: The best approach is to take CQRS pattern with Worker Role. For CQRS pattern please refer https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn568103.aspx. Another option is to use Web Jobs with Web Apps. But avoid Web Job for large processing as this stays in the same machine where your Web App is. This might create bottlenecks for your web portal for long memory consuming activity. For everything on Web Jobs please refer https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/websites-webjobs-resources/. If the processing is very large and need a lot of computing resource please use Azure Batch, refer https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/services/batch/ 

    4. File Upload to local. In many Web Applications we have file upload feature. It could be an image or some document. Immediate solution is to upload them and keep it in local web server folder. However this is not a good design in distributed scenario as discussed earlier.

    Candidate solution: Use Azure Blob Storage. This just as amazing as you expect. For .NET API of Azure Blob and how to use please refer https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-blobs/ 

    5. 3rd party component. Any 3rd party component which requires installation and has to be there in Global Assembly Cache (GAC) to be avoided. Otherwise we could go for Virtual Machine in IaaS mode.

    Candidate solution: The only option of deploying it to Infrastructure as a Service. Otherwise you can also use Cloud Service and startup task to deploy them. However, all the installer should have silent installation option.

    6. Select right platform for right kind of application. If you need to move Web App as Lift and Shift mode, go for IaaS. Else you must and only consider Web Apps. Cloud Service could be another option but as of today I don't see a reason why one would not select Web App over Cloud Services.

    Candidate solution: There is not on-size-fits-all. So select wisely as per business need.

    7. Authentication and Authorization. When we move on-premises Web Application to cloud the first thing we would miss is the integrated Windows Authentication. So need to plan accordingly.

    Candidate solution: Leverage Azure Active Directory as immediate solution with Directory Sync. But this would require code change as we need to use OAuth, SAML etc. This is a biggest road blocker in migration.  Here is how you can authenticate ASP.NET Web Application with Azure Active Directory https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/web-sites-authentication-authorization/

    8. Don't create the deployment slot for Web Load Test. Once you create a deployment slot it creates the web app in the same virtual machine. So by running Load Test would consume the shared CPU and RAM which is definitely a performance issue if we are running a live site.

    Candidate solution: Have a separate Web App created for testing.

    9. Implement SSL. Implement SSL using a valid certificate from a recognize certificate authority. When things are in on-premises we don't really need to think about SSL. However, moving it to public cloud need more caution as it is prone to hack.

    Candidate solution: Valid certificate form CA and CNAME mapping with domain centric binding would make sure of your authenticity. Steps how to implement SSL https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/web-sites-configure-ssl-certificate/

    10. Scale-out not Scale-up. By increasing the VM capacity does not guarantee the best performance, select the distributed approach.

    Candidate solution: Use Auto Scaling if possible this reduces the headache of waiting for the things to break. Test-test and Test until you are satisfied.

    Happy migrating….
