I have been spending a lot of time building Azure environments lately. I have found that it is a great way to provide some extra redundancy for client networks and when you use 3-Year reserved VMs, the redundancy is not cost prohibitive.
However, since I usually use the Azure portal to build the VMs instead of Powershell, I have found that the OS Disk, NICs and Data Disks usually get some funky names. I am a huge fan of a nice clean Azure install, so I prefer to change them to match the rest of the environment’s naming conventions. Usually this means I have to do some manual swapping etc.
Thanks to some scripts created by Charbel Nemnom (his blog is https://charbelnemnom.com), renaming some of the things created by Azure is a whole lot easier.
