Create an Azure Storage account using PowerShell
In this short post, I will show you how you can create a new Azure Storage Account using PowerShell.
To get started, you will have to establish a connection to your Azure account by running the following.
Before we continue, you will need to know the following information.
- Location = Azure Resource Location
- Sku Name
In the following example, we will create a new Resource Group as well as the new Storage Account.
$location = "southafricanorth" $resourceGroup = "RSG-MSFT-STG01" $storageAccountName = "lazylabstg" $skuName = "Standard_LRS" #Create new ResourceGroup $resourceGroup = "RSG-MSFT-STG01" New-AzResourceGroup -Name $resourceGroup -Location $location # Create the storage account. $storageAccount = New-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroup ` -Name $storageAccountName ` -Location $location ` -SkuName $skuName
New Resource Group and Storage account has been created
Next we can run the following to verify if the new account has been created.
Get-AzStorageAccount -StorageAccountName lazylabstg -ResourceGroupName RSG-MSFT-STG01
That’s how you can quickly create a new resource group and storage account.
