About this Hands-on Lab

Virtual networks (VNets) are the foundation of your private network on Azure. In this lab, you will create a virtual network and then add a subnet to it. This will prepare your Azure infrastructure for the deployment of additional virtual network-dependent resources, such as virtual machines (VMs).

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create a Virtual Network

Create a virtual network named vnet1 with the address range, and confirm that a default subnet with the address range will be added.

Add an Additional Subnet to the Virtual Network

Add an additional subnet named ServerSubnet with the address range

Additional Resources

Your manager has asked you to deploy a virtual network with two subnets to Azure in preparation for deploying Dev/Test virtual machines.

Using an existing resource group, you will complete the following:

  • Create a new virtual network
  • Add a subnet to the virtual network
