Managing your Azure Hybrid Connection with PowerShell

When you have a Azure Hybrid Connection setup the wrong way, you can delete the connection trough the UI but then the Hybrid Connection Manager still knows the connection.

If you for example are moving things around and you would like to keep the connection within the UI you will have to use PowerShell to alter the connections.

All connection strings needed can be found within the Azure Portal
