    Additional network interfaces must be in the same virtual network (VNet) as the network interface that is already attached to the VM. You cannot have a VM with multiple network interfaces attached to different virtual networks. Each network interface can be in a different subnet within the same VNet.

    To add another network interface in the portal you first stop the VM and then on the networking blade of the VM you click Attach network interface.

    You can add multiple interfaces to the VM based on the VM SKU, but all the interfaces needs to be on the same VNET. You can create multiple subnets and deploy NICs as part of different subnet of the same VNET.
