Those who are in the process of migrating their workloads from the classic Azure ASM portal to the new Resource Manager (ARM) portal will probably find themselves wanting to migrate their public facing IP address’ so you don’t have to worry about DNS replication during the cutover. Below is a quick guide which walks you through the process.
Cloud Service – CeledonCloudService
Region – West US 2
Public IP Address – 184.108.40.206
Reserved IP Address Name: CeledonWebsitePublicIP
Step 1 – Login and prepare your ARM enviornment
#Login to your ARM account Add-AzureRmAccount #Get a list of available subscriptions Get-AzureRMSubscription | Sort SubscriptionName | Select SubscriptionName #Select your subscription Select-AzureRmSubscription -SubscriptionName "SubscriptionName" #Register migration provider, this can take a couple minuites Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.ClassicInfrastructureMigrate #View the current RegistrationState status, do not proceed to step 2 until the status says Registered Get-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.ClassicInfrastructureMigrate
Step 2 – Login to your ASM account
#Login to your ASM account Add-AzureAccount #Get a list of available subscriptions Get-AzureSubscription | Sort SubscriptionName | Select SubscriptionName #Select your subscription Select-AzureSubscription –SubscriptionName "SubscriptionName"
Step 3 – Reserve Your Public IP Address/De-associate it from your Cloud Service
#Reserve your Cloud Service public IP address. Change the ReservedIPName and ServiceName switches as nescessary New-AzureReservedIP –ReservedIPName CeledonWebSitePublicIP –Location "West US 2" -ServiceName CeledonCloudService #De-associate the reserved IP address from your cloud service Remove-AzureReservedIPAssociation -ReservedIPName CeledonWebSitePublicIP -ServiceName CeledonCloudService
Step 4 – Migrate the Reserved IP address

Step 5 – Verify & Cleanup
At this point if you login to portal.azure.com, you should see the resource under Public IP Address with the correct IP address. You can go ahead and move it to the correct resource group and assign the public IP address to whichever resource you would like.
