When configuring an external load balancer, i can assign a public IP for the front end and create a backend pool of servers from my vnet. My question is, how do i force the LB to route via an NVA? If the LB was associated with a subnet in one of my vnets, then a UDR on that subnet would take effect. However the LB isnt tied to my vnet

    External LBs are not tied to the subnet. You need to add the NVAs as the backend pool of the LB and route traffic from the NVA to the VMs accordingly.
