About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Log into the Azure portal by creating a free trial Azure account.

  2. Create your own resource group which will be used throughout the project and demonstrate your understanding of the importance of Resource Groups.

  3. Create custom Virtual Networks and avail of Bastion Hosts for secure connectivity.

  4. Create and deploy a virtual machine from start to finish into your virtual network.

  5. Recreate the steps you used in Task 4 to create a second virtual machine and deploy it into your virtual network alongside the first virtual machine.

  6. Connect to the first of the Virtual machines by using the secure bastion Host directly from the Azure Portal. Test connectivity between the two virtual machines using Powershell and the Ping utility

  7. Test connectivity between the two virtual machines using Windows Remote Desktop utility while connected externally through the Bastion Host.

  8. Manage your resources centrally through the Resource Group you created. You will also clean up your subscription by deleting the resources you created as the final step in the project.
