Azure VM on Virtual Network

Everybody that has been working with Azure Virtual Machine for some time will tell you to put VM’s in a Virtual Network. I’ve written about moving VM’s or creating VPN. This post is about the time I was smart enough to follow best practice on creation.

Virtual Network

First create the virtual network. Just use the Quick Create, give it a name and create it.

Now that we have a virtual network, let’s create some virtual machines.

Virtual Machine

To create the virtual machine(s) use the wizard as the Quick Create does not offer virtual network selection.
From Gallery
On the third tab select the virtual network you’ve created before.
Select Virtual Network
Every vm on the same virtual network can find the others by name. Just make sure to punch some holes in the firewall.

My work as a recruited developer changes almost every month. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
