    Hi @GitaraniSharma-MSFT and @subrothodas-9589

    I have this problem also.

    When I try to create a VPN Gateway (Virtual Network Gateway) I do not get the option of selecting the VPN Type or Basic SKU.

    I get to select Gateway Type (which i set to VPN) and the generation and SKU. For Generation I select generation 1 and then I get to select between VpnGw1 through VpnGw5 and VpnGw1AZ through VpnGw5AZ (some of these are generation 2 - i know)

    However - I do not have the option of selecting Route-based Vpn Type and neither the SKU of Basic.


    Does anyone know why I do not have these options?

    Hi binariesindia
    To set up a virtual network gateway with a basic SKU, you can follow the steps in the tutorial "Tutorial – Create & manage a VPN gateway – Azure portal" on Microsoft Docs.

    Here is a brief summary of the steps:

    1. Go to the Azure portal.
    2. Create a virtual network gateway.
    3. Select the basic SKU.User's image
    4. Wait for the gateway to fully create and deploy, which can take 45 minutes or more.
    5. View the public IP address assigned to the gateway on the Overview page.

    List of available SKUs by tunnel, connection, and throughput:

    Note: Please note the basic SKU cannot be selected when ActiveActive or BGP mode is enabled?

    Hello @binariesindia ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & hope you are doing well.

    I understand that you would like to know how to setup a Basic SKU VPN gateway.

    If you are trying to create a new VPN gateway, then you can select the "Basic" SKU in the VPN gateway creation page on Azure portal as below:

    If you have an existing VPN gateway and you would like to change it to Basic, then this may not possible via a re-size option.

    As mentioned in the below doc, with the exception of the Basic SKU, you can resize your gateway to a gateway SKU within the same SKU family. For example, if you have a Standard SKU, you can resize to a HighPerformance SKU. However, you can't resize your VPN gateway between the old SKUs and the new SKU families. For example, you can't go from a Standard SKU to a VpnGw2 SKU, or a Basic SKU to VpnGw1 and vice-versa.


    The resizing of VpnGw SKUs is allowed within the same generation, except resizing of the Basic SKU. The Basic SKU is a legacy SKU and has feature limitations. In order to move from Basic to another SKU, you must delete the Basic SKU VPN gateway and create a new gateway with the desired Generation and SKU size combination.


    Basic SKU is supported on Generation1 only. If you have a Generation1 Standard SKU VPN gateway, then re-sizing to Basic SKU may work.

    To change any other existing VPN gateway SKU to Basic SKU, you need to delete the existing VPN gateway and create a new VPN gateway.


    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
