Windows Azure Deployment – Problem and Solution #1

Note: I will start posting the series of “Problem/Solution” posts for Windows Azure deployment. As I intend to reach out to those people who have the same problem and search in Google or Bing, I will post the code, error message, output message  in details. Hence, that will make the post longer but I already told you about my intention. If you like to share your experience with Azure (esp: deployment), please feel free to share with me. 

Scott wrote a great post “CI DEPLOYMENT OF AZURE WEB ROLES USING TEAMCITY” about deploying Azure webrole from Azure PowerShell SDK. I used it as a reference when I was deploying one website and windows service to Azure web role and woker role but due to my settings that Scott might not have, I have to update a few things for his script. I am sharing it here for those who might have the same setting as I have.

Note: ScottGu announced about the release of Windows Azure SDK 2.2 (Please refer to this link Windows Azure: Announcing release of Windows Azure SDK 2.2 (with lots of goodies) for more information a few days back. But that version wasn’t available when I was playing around with Azure. All API that I used and the experience that I had comes from SDK 2.1.

Problem: Error in importing the module

You need to import the Azure module before you start doing anything with Azure CmdLet but if there is more than

Solution

Use Azure.psd1 instead.
