Can I specificy the VPC for Datafactory

Randall Danielson 96 Reputation points

I have a site to site VPN setup and working. I can prove this by launching a virtual machine into the virtual network and pinging a machine in the other site.

Now what I want to do is launch Data-factory in this virtual network so that it can connect to a MS SQL server at the other site over the local addresses of the VPN.

How do I set the virtual network of a data-factory instance?

    Hi... maybe this is what you were trying to say and I didn't understand... but I got something to work.

    I created a new Azure windows VM (making sure to launch it into the virtual network that has access to the site 2 site vpn). Logged into Azure portal from a browser on this VM, did the express install of a Integration Runtime onto this VM.

    Now Data Factory can connect to the remote MS SQL over the VPN without installing anything at the remote site.

    @Randall Danielson Yes, correct you need to install SHIR on the VM to connect to your data factory to make it work in site to site VPN. Thanks for sharing the details as well as it will help other community members. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
