    Hi Sewoba Shudzeka,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    To practice Microsoft Azure Administrator skills on the Microsoft cloud platform, we recommend the following free Microsoft Azure resources. Directly accessing a full Microsoft production environment for practice is generally not feasible due to security and cost concerns.

    1.Microsoft Azure Free Tier:

    The first and most accessible option is the Azure Free Trial. We can sign up for a free Azure trial using the following link: Azure Free Trial. This allows us to experiment with core Azure services for a limited period of 30 days.

    We can create and manage virtual machines, storage accounts, databases, and other resources, gaining hands-on experience with core administration tasks. It is important to note that the Azure Free Trial version has a limited timeframe, so we should plan our practice accordingly and make the most of the trial period.

    2.Microsoft Learn Sandboxes:

    Not all modules within the Microsoft Learn paths include sandboxes, but some specific Administrator learning paths on Microsoft Learn offer isolated sandbox environments. These sandboxes allow us to practice tasks in a safe, controlled environment without impacting a production system.

    We should check the specific learning modules we are working on to see if sandboxes are available. By completing the hands-on labs and exercises within the Administrator path modules on Microsoft Learn, we can gain valuable practice scenarios for configuration, management, and troubleshooting.

    We can explore the "Microsoft Learn for Administrators" page to view available learning paths and resources: Microsoft Learn for Administrators.

    By leveraging the Azure Free Tier subscription and Microsoft Learn resources, we can gain practical experience and knowledge relevant to our desired career path as Administrators.
