Select-AzureRmProfile : The term ‘Select-AzureRmProfile’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program

I got a chance to work with PowerShell automation script to automate the login process. In the script, the profile is loaded using the Select-AzureRmProfile. If you try to log in using Select-AzureRmProfile you most likely encounter the following error message.

Error Message:

Select-AzureRmProfile : The term ‘Select-AzureRmProfile’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

At line:36 char:1

+ Select-AzureRmProfile -Path c:\AzureDataLakeprofile.json

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

+ CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Select-AzureRmProfile:String) [], CommandNotFoundException

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Select-rmAzureDL

Workaround:

The Select-AzureRmProfile is no-more a validate cmdlet. If you encounter Select-AzureRmProfile cmdlet in the script, you may need to replace with Save-AzureRmContext and Import-AzureRmContext.

PS:\>Save-AzureRmContext -Path c:\AzureDataLakeprofile.json

PS:\>Import-AzureRmContext -Path c:\AzureDataLakeprofile.json

Output:

Now, you can see that the profile got loaded successfully
