On Prem ConfigMgr and Azure VMs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to manage Azure VMs with an OnPrem ConfigMgr??

    My theory on how to do it would be install either VPN Site to Site / Point to Site or installing Cloud Management Gateway and Cloud DP Azure and use the PKI or Azure Authentication to authenticate the servers. If the last is the best way, in case I deploy the Cloud DP on the same subscription as I have my Azure VMs running, would that be considered Intranet for the data exchanged??? or I would still pay the data traffic as if the clients were running anywhere else??

    Thanks

  • Hi,
    Site-to-Site VPn will give you all the features in SCCM, Cloud Management Gateway and DP still has some limitations so it also depends on what you want to do with the servers. 

    Not sure about the data traffic actually, never used that scenario.

    In regards to your question about traffic, if you deploy a Cloud DP in the same region as your Azure VM's, then according to below, you will not be charged for traffic between the Cloud DP and the Azure VM's. However you would be charged for traffic for the data sent from your on-prem ConfigMgr to the Cloud DP, and from the Azure VM's to the ConfigMgr on-prem.

    Is data transfer between Azure services located within the same region charged?
    No. For example, an Azure SQL database in the same region will not have any additional data transfer costs.
