Recently, Azure virtual machines provisioned with the 'Resource Manager/Classic' deployment model have been provisioned with virtual IP and dynamic IP addresses, but not public IP address. A public IP address is necessary for accessing services deployed on VM from a local browser.

For example, in an Azure Linux VM, if you provision Apache Hadoop/Hortonworks Data Platform/Cloudera Hadoop Distribution, you may need to access the Hadoop services from a local browser in those addresses, like the HDFS service (http://<ip address of VM>:50070 and http://<ip address of VM>:50075) and MapReduce Service (http://<ip address of VM>:8080), etc.

In order to assign public IP addresses for an Azure Linux VM , you need to execute the following PowerShell script:

Get-AzureVM -ServiceName ‘azfilestorage’ -Name ‘azfilestorage’ | Set-AzurePublicIP -PublicIPName ‘linuxvmip’ | Update-AzureVM

#Next, update the VM with SSH Port 22 so that the VM can be accessed through SSH.
Get-AzureVM -Name ‘azfilestorage’ -ServiceName ‘azfilestorage’ | Set-AzureEndpoint -Protocol tcp -Name ‘SSH’ -PublicPort 22 -LocalPort 22 | Update-AzureVM


Next, you can check the public IP address on Azure Portal under the "IP Address" section of Azure Virtual Machine:


And there you have it. Your Azure VM is now provisioned with a public IP address.
