Sometimes we need the agility of PowerShell to execute simple Azure Network Watcher tasks. In this blog post, we are going to cover the steps required to use the Next Hop tool.
The following PowerShell script can be used to perform the same task that we have just done in the Azure Portal.
$nw = Get-AzNetworkWatcher -Name NetworkWatcher_canadacentral -ResourceGroupName NetworkWatcherRG $vm = get-azvm -Name vqa1psarisql01 Get-AzNetworkWatcherNextHop -NetworkWatcher $nw -TargetVirtualMachineId $vm.Id -SourceIPAddress <Source-IP> -DestinationIPAddress <Destination-IP>
The result will be three columns: Next Hop Type, Next Hop IP Address, and Route Table ID.
