Deploy required Azure IaaS Virtual Machine – Part3

Domain Controller – JBSDC

-> Below Azure Virtual Machine will be provisioned to be used as a Domain Controller. I have allowed In-Bound port 3389 for RDP as this is a Lab setup.

-> Disks Tab,

-> Networking Tab. Make sure a Standard SKU is selected for Public IP Address.

-> Tabs “Management”, “Advanced” and “Tags” are default in my case. Click “Create”,

Database Server – JBSAG1

-> Search for “SQL Virtual Machine” on Azure portal. Please note that I am selecting a “Free SQL Server License: SQL 2019 Developer Edition” as this is a lab. In reality you will need to utilize an enterprise edition.

-> Selecting an Image as mentioned here will have additional SQL Server components such as Analysis and Integration Services. You can either disableuninstall them if you don’t use or You can provision an Azure Virtual machine and then Install SQL Server on it which will allow you to select only required components.

Always On Availability Group Environment on Azure IaaS Virtual Machine Introduction – Part1

Environment

-> JBSAG1 and JBSAG2 are Azure IaaS virtual machines provisioned on East US region. Azure IaaS virtual machine JBSAG3 is provisioned on West US region.

-> Azure virtual machine JBSAG1, JBSAG2 and JBSAG3 are part of Windows cluster JBSWikiClust without shared storage. Azure virtual machine JBSAG1 and JBSAG2 will be configured using Synchronous commit with automatic failover. JBSAG3 will be configured using Asynchronous commit with Manual failover.

-> Resources related to Virtual Machine JBSAG1 and JBSAG2 will be hosted on a Resource Group called JBSWiki and resources related to virtual machine JBSAG3 will be hosted on resource group JBSWiki_WestUS.

-> This environment will have a database called JBSWiki added to availability group JBSAG with Listener JBSAPP.

-> Database Servers JBSAG1 and JBSAG2 will be configured using common Virtual network and subnet configuration. Database Server JBSAG3 will have a separate Virtual network and subnet configuration.
