Powershell – Script to check the Azure VHD lease status

Nice Article

Explore Azure and Powershell

The common miss conception while working with Azure compute is to assume that no billing charges will be incurred once the Azure VM is deleted. This is true to certain extent. Because, once you delete the VM, the billing for compute hours will stop. But the billing continues for the VHD (which was previously associated with the VM) that is still available in the Azure storage account.

As the title of the post states – the idea behind this script is to get a list of “Lease status” of Azure VHDs from all the storage accounts under your subscription. This is particularly helpful to delete any unused VHDs. Thus saving a lot of money for your organization.

The complete script is uploaded in the Microsoft Script Center. Use the below link to download it.
