This document will show you how to step by step to configure Cisco Meraki to azure site to site VPN IPsec tunnel IKEv1.
If the Cisco Meraki Security appliances running firmware less than version 15.12 do not have support for IKEv2. Also, there is a bug at concurrent firmware 14.53 (confirmed by Meraki support engineer), when you build up a VPN non-Meraki peer with Azure, the all auto VPN peers will down and won’t come back on line until you reboot the security appliance. Everything will be fine after reboot it.
Receive a discount on your Azure services by purchasing reservations. Giving Azure visibility into your one-year or three-year resource needs in advance allows Azure to be more efficient. In return, Microsoft pass these savings onto you as discounts of up to 72 percent.
This document will show you how to step by step to configure Cisco Meraki to azure site to site VPN tunnels IKEv2.
The Cisco Meraki Security appliances running firmware must be on firmware 15 or greater to take advantage of IKEv2, because the firmware 15.x is still beta version, you need to ask Meraki support to upgrade it for you if you need it.
When you try to send email out from exchange server VM at Azure, you will notice it will failed send email out. Because starting on November 15, 2017, outbound email messages that are sent directly to external domains (such as outlook.com and gmail.com) from a virtual machine (VM) are made available only to certain subscription types in Microsoft Azure. Outbound SMTP connections that use TCP port 25 were blocked. (Port 25 is primarily used for unauthenticated email delivery.), so you will notice the exchange server VM won’t send email out after you configure send connector.

Today, I try to publish blog via Microsoft word as usual, but it failed and show a warning message “Word cannot publish the pictures in this post. The most likely cause of this problem is that you do not have enough storage space. Contact your provider and try again, or choose a different picture provider”, this so weird and I am sure I didn’t change any settings at my blog site except enable SSL. I figure out the issues after do some research and test.
There are some reasons why your website should invariably have a SSL certificate, e.g. SSL certificates help to ensure your website security, website visitors will see it as a trustworthy Brand, also it will enhance the search engine ranking for your website. Today, I am going to show you how to enable SSL certificate at the website of Azure, let follow the step by step to complete it and make your website better at azure.
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how you can enable Hyper-V for your Azure virtual machine! Stay tuned for more content, but if you want to access them early feel free to go to the channel below and subscribe and turning the notification bell on. Anyways, Enjoy the video!
In this tutorial, we used Azure to create a Hyper-V nested virtual machine that contains multiple IP addresses. This is going to be a four part tutorial so stay tuned. Anyways, I’ll be seeing you all in the next one!
In this short tutorial, I’ll be showing you how you can build a Hyper-V Nested Virtual Machine With Multiple IP Addresses at Azure. For more content, stay tuned. Or you can access them early by going to our YouTube channel and subscribing. (Link in the description.) This way, if there’s any new content you will be one of the first ones to experience it.
Veeam released the Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 on January, also with this release, Veeam now also have support for Cloud based Object Storage, such as Azure Blob Storage which means that we can have the last 30 days of data stored on a local repository and then move the archive or later up to a Azure Blob but Azure Blob is capacity tier storage, you cannot use it as local backup repository and backup data to it directly. Let’s follow steps to configure it.
As we know, there are lots of features on Microsoft Azure cloud, in order to use those features, you need to create a Microsoft Azure account, it’s very easy to create, also you will get $250 credit at the first month.
If you are a newcomer on Microsoft Azure, no worry, I am going to show you how to create Azure free account with $250 credit today, just follow the steps as below.
Have you been followed my previously blog to build up Hyper-V nested virtual machine on Microsoft Azure? If you don’t, you better build it right now, because this is pre-requisites and you will get lots of benefit for your lab or even production environment, you can reference this link and build it. If you did, congratulation! You can create a nested gest virtual machine and install Firewall (e.g. Sophos XG, Fortinet…) for free, why we still need to build firewall at our Azure Hyper-V nested environment? Because it supports lots functions that we cannot get the functions for free from Azure, e.g. server load balance, firewall, SNAT, application filter, IPS…and so on, we also can use it for LAB or simulate issues or POC. I am going to show how to build Sophos XG here.
As we know, you can easy to create VMs, Firewalls, Load Balancers on Microsoft Azure, you also can make routing path change but all of them will cost you lots of money, it depends on how many virtual devices or virtual machines that you created.
Today, I am going to show you how to build Hyper-V nested VM with multiple public IP address, you just need to pay Microsoft for one Hyper-V host with storage space and public IP addresses, you can install firewall, created lots of VMs, load balancer, control routing path, port forwarding and so on, we can use them for LAB test, POC, or even production.
Today, I would like to tell you how to build a site-to-site VPN from Sophos XG firewall to Azure, if you have no budget to buy a hardware base firewall for you home office or lab, no worry, you also can download and install at Microsoft Hyper-V (or others) Virtual Machine and it’s free!!
Have you been follow my previously post steps to add your domain to Office 365? if not please check my previously post and do it. If you did and then it’s time to deploy Azure AD connect to sync your on-premises AD to Azure AD (Office 365).
You can download and install Azure AD Connect to your ADFS server or you also can install it at your domain server if you won’t use ADFS server for your infrastructure. you can install Azure Ad Connect with Express settings but I recommend install it with Customized settings, because you can adjust settings to match your requirements.
Today, my client asked me to provide MOP (Method of Procedure) to them, the MOP will help to migrate their exchange services to Office 365. I am going to do multi-post and let you know how to migrate your exchange services to Office 365 via step by step.
