To restart the Azure VM using PowerShell, we can use the az vm restart command. This command requires the Azure VM in the running status. You also require to connect to the Azure cloud account and the proper azure subscription before running this command.

Let assume our VM win2k16vm1 is currently on. We need to restart this VM. Here, -n is the VM name, and -g is the resource group name.

PS C:\> az vm restart -n vmname -g RGname --verbose

You can also provide the full parameter name as shown below.

PS C:\> az vm restart --name win2k16vm1 --resource-group testvmrg

If the VM is unresponsive, you can restart it by using the --force parameter.

PS C:\> az vm restart --name win2k16vm1 --resource-group testvmrg --force

To restart the VM without waiting for long-running operations to finish, you can use the --no-wait parameter.

PS C:\> az vm restart --name win2k16vm1 --resource-group testvmrg --no-wait
