Learn How to Create Windows Server 2019 Virtual Machine inside Azure

In this article, you will Learn How to Create Windows Server 2019 Virtual Machine inside Azure. We wrote step-by-step instructions with images to create  Windows Server 2019 Virtual Machine inside Microsoft Azure.

 

The first step is to log into your Microsoft Azure account and then see if you have the right to create the new virtual machine. That you can look from Privileged Identity Management. When you have access to create New Virtual machines, click on the Virtual Machines icon or search on the search bar by writing “Virtual Machines” and click on it as shown in the image below.¬†

After clicking the Virtual machine, you will reach here to see all your running or stopped virtual machines.

Azure-Windows-VM-2

 

 

Now you need to click create drop down and click on virtual machines.

Azure-Windows-VM-03

 

 

 

A popup will open from the right-hand side with the list of resources, and it’s the basic info you need to fill in like Subscription, resource group you need to select, virtual machine name you want to give to your machine. Next, select the region where you want to host your machine and select the Availability zones. One region has many Availability zones, so you need to select more than one AZ for high availability.

Because we want to make Windows Server Machine, that’s why we select Windows Server 2019 image. Don’t select Azure spot instance( I will explain to you in a future article what’s the need for spot instance). Then select the size of the machine you want. We are making a test machine, that why I am selecting a tiny machine.

Then select a username and password from which you can RDP into the machine. Then select Public Port open for RDP( there are many other secure ways to do it via Network Resource Group connected to Subnet), but I want to show you how it’s possible if you want to make your machine for the first time.

Then click on the licensing checkbox and confirm

Azure-Windows-VM-7

 

 

 

If you need an extra disk attached to your Virtual Machine, then you can select from here. We don’t need an extra disk right now; that’s why I haven’t selected any.

Azure-Windows-VM-9

 

 

 

Every Virtual machine needs to be inside some Virtual network and subnet. So if you don’t have any Vnet, then click create new otherwise, use the existing one and select the subnet after selecting the proper Vnet.

Azure-Windows-VM-11

 

 

 

Now next step is Management, and you need to select Boot diagnostics. You need to enable this feature for sure for troubleshooting boot failures.

Azure-Windows-VM-12

 

 

 

We are not touching these advanced options right now because it is just a dummy machine.

Azure-Windows-VM-13

 

 

 

Tagging is essential; always fill tags like your machine name, environment, use, etc.

Azure-Windows-VM-14

 

 

 

Review and create: Validation Passed. Do the final review and click create.

Azure-Windows-VM-15

 

 

 

After clicking create button, you will see deployment is in progress.

Azure-Windows-VM-16

 

 

 

And finally, deployment is complete. The next step is to click on “Go to resources,” and it will take you to the current machine which just built.

Azure-Windows-VM-17

 

 

 

Finally, you can see the machine we just created, and you see the status running.

Azure-Windows-VM-18

 

To test your machine is working click on the connect, download RDP, and add a username and password & login.

Once the VM is created, you can connect to it using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and manage it using Azure’s web-based management portal. To connect to the VM, simply click on the VM in the Azure portal and select “Connect.” This will provide you with the necessary RDP credentials and instructions for connecting to the VM.

That’s it! You now have a Windows Server 2019 virtual machine running inside Azure. You can use this VM to host applications, run workloads, or perform other tasks in the cloud.
