You are starting a new job as an Azure cloud administrator. The previous administrator leaves you a note with the following PowerShell cmdlets:
$publicIP = New-AzureRmPublicIpAddress
You need to determine what these cmdlets do.
What should you conclude?
The cmdlets create a load balancer configuration that uses NAT to send inbound traffic to a set of virtual machines (VMs). The New-AzureRmPublicIpAddress cmdlet creates a public IP address. The New-AzureRmLoadBalancerFrontendIpConfig cmdlet creates a Load Balancer configuration that specifies the front-end public IP address.
You should not conclude that the cmdlets create an outbound traffic configuration. New-AzureRmLoadBalancerFrontendIpConfig creates an inbound configuration.
You should not conclude that the cmdlets send inbound traffic to a Load Balancer. New-AzureRmLoadBalancerFrontendIpConfig creates an inbound configuration from a Load Balancer to a backend pool.
