Use the latest SKU version when creating a VM

Q. How can I use the latest version of SKUs for an offer from Azure?

A. Vendors constantly update their versions of offers in the marketplace. To get the latest version you can use the PowerShell below.

$AzureImageSku = Get-AzureRmVMImage -Location $loc -PublisherName "MicrosoftWindowsServer" `
    -Offer "WindowsServer" -Skus "2012-R2-Datacenter"
$AzureImageSku = $AzureImageSku | Sort-Object Version -Descending #put the newest first
$AzureImageSku[0] #Newest
