CrossBlogPost Microsoft #AzureStack TP3 in the Classroom for Students #Education #DellEMC


Microsoft Azure Stack in the Classroom for Students

Today Microsoft Azure Cloud technology is really going fast with Great innovations for people and their businesses to evolve in what they can do best in a real world.
To Learn these new fast going technologies is a challenge for teachers and students on school. I did some Azure workshops for students at Microsoft Netherlands, and when they have an
Azure subscription active they see and learn all the possibilities in the Cloud. ICT teachers and students love to work with Microsoft Azure Cloud technologies, making virtual machines
and upload their own images to work with. Learning how to develop applications and make them active in the Cloud for Mobile devices. The possibilities in Microsoft azure are endless for
Education, making training courses online, prepare online practical exams and much more. A lot of schools have Microsoft Imagine subscription to use great software of Microsoft, and for developers
there is also an Imagine Azure subscription available with Awesome Features available for Free. For ICT teachers and students who need Azure Cloud services with compute, vnet, Storage for virtual disk
images is also possible but you have to pay as you go and we know that Education and students don’t have enough money for that to learn awesome new technologies like Microsoft Azure.

With this knowledge we asked Dell EMC to support us in our Journey with Microsoft Azure Stack POC Single Server appliance ( Dell PowerEdge R630) to get the
Awesome Microsoft Azure technology in the Classroom for teachers and students to learn Cloud services.
Pim Langeveld (ICT Teacher at ROC van Amsterdam) and I made a blogsite for our Journey with Microsoft Azure Stack in the Classroom.

Here you find our AzureStack for Education Blog : https://azurestackblog.wordpress.com

Have a Look 😉

As an Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management I will help my friend Pim Langeveld and Education to get Microsoft Azure technology in the Classroom for Students in my free time by
doing Microsoft Azure Stack workshops and together we will make an Awesome Journey with the learning students.

Install #Azure CLI 2.0 and Run Script for VM with Operations Management Suite Agent #MSOMS

Download Python for Windows here

Be sure to install the Pip component when you install Python. After the install completes, add Python to your PATH environment variable
(the installer will prompt you).

The Azure CLI 2.0 is Azure’s new command-line experience for managing Azure resources. It can be used on macOS, Linux, and Windows.

Azure CLI 2.0 is optimized for managing and administering Azure resources from the command line, and for building automation scripts that work against the Azure Resource Manager.

Open Command Prompt and type : python –version

To install Azure CLI you have to type the following command :
pip install –user azure-cli

Installing Azure CLI 2.0

Done.
Type Azure

With Microsoft Azure CLI 2.0 scripts you can deploy complete solutions, like this example for a Virtual Machine with Microsoft OMS agent active :

Sample script

#!/bin/sh

# Update for your admin password
AdminPassword=ChangeYourAdminPassword1

# OMS Id and OMS key.
omsid=<Replace with your OMS Id>
omskey=<Replace with your OMS key>

# Create a resource group.
az group create --name myResourceGroup --location westeurope

# Create a virtual machine. 
az vm create \
    --resource-group myResourceGroup \
    --name myVM \
    --image win2016datacenter \
    --admin-username azureuser \
    --admin-password $AdminPassword 

# Install and configure the OMS agent.
az vm extension set \
  --resource-group myResourceGroup \
  --vm-name myVM --name MicrosoftMonitoringAgent \
  --publisher Microsoft.EnterpriseCloud.Monitoring \
  --version 1.0 --protected-settings '{"workspaceKey": "'"$omskey"'"}' \
  --settings '{"workspaceId": "'"$omsid"'"}'
