You can configure virtual network and load balancer information for an Azure virtual machine in the reservation.

About this task

You can also choose to leave this page partly or completely blank and configure virtual network and load balancer information when you provision a virtual machine.

If you specify a network profile and do not specify a subnet, then the name of the first existing network range of the specified network profile is used as the subnet name. If a network profile is specified, you can choose to leave the vNet text box blank. In this case, the name of this first network range of the specified network profile is used as the subnet name, and the vNet name is resolved to the first Azure vNet that contains an applicable subnet.

Prerequisites

Obtain the appropriate virtual network and load balancer information from your Azure instance where applicable.

Procedure

  1. Click New in the Networks table to configure the appropriate Azure virtual network to use with your virtual machine.
    1. Paste the appropriate vNet name information from your Azure instance into the vNet text box.
    2. Paste the appropriate Subnet name information from your Azure instance into the Subnet text box.

      The Subnet specification is optional. If you leave this box empty, the subnet of the specified vNet is used by default.

    3. Type or paste the appropriate name in the Network Profile text box. You can use the network profile in the blueprint to associate a network interface card with a network.

      The network profile specification is optional. Use if it you want to create you blueprint based on the network profile is defined in vRealize Automation rather than have it coupled with Azure network constructs.

    4. Assign a numerical priority value in the Priority text box if applicable.

      This assignment determines priority when a virtual network has more than one reservation, with lower numbers taking precedence.

    5. Click Save to add the Resource Group to the reservation.
  2. Click New in the Load Balancers table if you are deploying multiple machines and use a load balancer.
    1. Paste the appropriate load balancer name from your Azure instance into the Name text box.
    2. Paste the appropriate name from your Azure instance into the Backend Address Pool text box.
    3. Assign a numerical priority value in the Priority text box if applicable.

      This assignment determines priority when a virtual network has more than one load balancer, with lower numbers taking precedence.

    4. Click Save to add the load balancer to the reservation.
  3. Click New in the Security Groups table if you are deploying multiple machines that must communicate through a firewall.
    1. Paste the security group name from your Azure instance into the Name text box.
    2. Assign a numerical priority value in the Priority text box if applicable.

      This assignment determines priority when a virtual network has more than one security group, with lower numbers taking precedence.

    3. Click Save to add the security group to the reservation.
  4. Click OK.
