Update: Cloning Azure environments using Azure Automation

Last month, my article about cloning and creating a bubble environment in Microsoft Azure using a PowerShell script was published here at TechGenix. You can check it out here.

However, I have received a request to clone a single VM instead of an entire resource group containing several VMs. I'm a big supporter of reusing code to accomplish new goals.

I've slightly changed the original code that is published in the original article. The difference is that now we have a new parameter called SingleVMInstead (by default it is False). If you want to clone a single VM, then switch that to True and provide the VMName in the SingleVMInstead field below.

The new cloning Azure environments script with the updated code can be found here.
