I've just installed the latest PowerShell 1.1 and am following this blog entry to add reverse DNS to an existing Linux VM that I am running

I was able to log in and run Get-AzureRmSubscription to see my subscriptions:

SubscriptionName : Visual Studio Premium with MSDN



SubscriptionName : Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN



If I try to run the Set-AzureService command, an error message tells me I need to set a default subscription

I've tried

Select-AzureSubscription -Default 'Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN'

Select-AzureSubscription -Default "Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN"

Select-AzureSubscription -Default 'Visual Studio Premium with MSDN'

Select-AzureSubscription -Default "Visual Studio Premium with MSDN"

I've even tried just running Select-AzureSubscription and then entering the subscription name when prompted, with no quotes, single quotes, and double quotes, and haven't been able to get this to work.

I keep getting an error saying something like "The subscription name 'Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN' doesn't exist".

I've also tried doing this using "Select-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionID" with the subscription IDs listed, with similar results.

What am I doing wrong?

In Resource Manager, check this :

Get-AzureRmSubscription -SubscriptionName "<name>" | Select-AzureRmSubscription

You also have to add classic credentials. You can use this:

The problem here is that the 'default' parameter is depreciated.

If you run the below-mentioned command

Select-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName "Visual Studio Premium with MSDN” -Default "Visual Studio Premium with MSDN"

After running the above command you will get -

WARNING: Current and Default parameters have been deprecated. Select-AzureSubscription will always update the Default Subscription

To get the result you can run the below-mentioned command:-

Select-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName "Visual Studio Premium with MSDN"
