For an Azure Stack Hub operator, most day-to-day operations are done through the Administration Portal or PowerShell. For some of the infrequent operations, you can use the Privileged Endpoint (PEP).
The PEP is a remote PowerShell console that provides you with PowerShell Just Enough Administration (JEA) to expose only a restricted set of cmdlets that you can use in the environment. The cmdlets allow you to check the status and health of Azure Stack Hub and pull any logs for troubleshooting.
Before accessing the PEP for the first time, you must obtain the IPs of the virtual machines that host the PEP. In the Azure Stack Hub environment, the virtual machines are named AzS-ERCS01, AzS-ERCS02, and AzS-ERCS03. There are multiple instances of the PEP virtual machines, and each runs on a separate scale-unit node for resiliency.
To obtain the PEP IP addresses:
