Hi All,

The powershell script below doesn't work in Microsoft Azure - The VM's do not start:

$jobs = @()
Foreach ( $VM in Get-AzureRmVM )
  if ( $_.Tags.Values -and $_.Tags.Keys -eq 'Start VM' )
    $ResourceGroupName = $vm | select -expandproperty resourcegroupname
    Write-Output "$($VM.Name) is starting"
    $jobs += Start-Job -ScriptBlock { param($VMName, $RscGrp) Start-Azurermvm -Name $VMName -ResourceGroupName $RscGrp -ErrorAction Continue } -ArgumentList $VM.Name, $ResourceGroupName
    Write-output "Not starting the VM $VM.Name"
$jobs | Wait-Job | Remove-Job -Force
