Change the network interface of a VM in Azure

March 8, 2017

I got help here:

What to do:

  1. Dissociate your public ip from your old network interface. Choose the public ip and click “Dissociate”.
  2. Create your new network interface.
  3. Then associate the public ip with the new network interface.
  4. Get the resource id of both the old and new network interface in Azure portal: Choose the Network interface -> Properties -> RESOURCE ID
  5. Then run the following Azure-PowerShell-command:

Get-AzureRMVM -ResourceGroupName [RESOURCE-GROUP] -Name [MACHINE-NAME] | Remove-AzureRmVMNetworkInterface -Id “[RESOURCE-ID-OLD-NI]” | Add-AzureRmVMNetworkInterface -Id “[RESOURCE-ID-OLD-NI]” | Update-AzureRmVM


From → Azure

  1. Hi Hans !
    there is a reason to Add-AzureRmVMNetworkInterface -Id “[RESOURCE-ID-OLD-NI]”
    It is something like [RESOURCE-ID-NEW-NI] ?
    Did you ever try this with VMs in an availability set ?

    Thanks for your notes.
