Creating a Multi NIC Azure Resource Manager VM

Along a similar vein to my post about converting a single NIC Azure VM to multi NIC, here’s how you can create a new multi NIC VM using an Azure ARM template.

I’ve enhanced the Azure Quickstart template that does this to provide more options and greater flexibility.

This template creates:

  • 1 virtual machine
  • 2 network interfaces (NICs), front end and back end
  • public IP address
  • RDP connectivity
  • load balancer
  • associated storage accounts
