WVD network topology

Domenico Alemagna 1 Reputation point Microsoft Employee

Our WVD architecture is based on a Forced Tunneling scenario. An Azure Route (UDR) points to an Azure Fortigate firewall.

Internet traffic flows these hops:

  • WVD Host Pools
  • FortiGate firewall hosted on Azure
  • Virtual Network Gateway hosted on Azure
  • Site-To-Site VPN Tunnel
  • FortiGate Firewall hosted On-Premise
  • Internet

I created an additional Azure Route (UDR), to differentiate the KMS traffic and to send this triffic directly to Internet

To permit the WVD VMs to operate in absence of the On-Premise Firewall (DR scenario) I would like to create a rule to send the the traffic directed to *.wvd.microsoft.com directly to Internet.

Can I use an Azure Firewall or other Azure service to differentiate the traffic directed to *.wvd.microsoft.com and send it directly to Internet?

    @dalemagna Apologies for the delay in response.

    One of the way to avoid the problem of setting hostname manually is to use Azure DNS. You can create an azure DNS entry for specific private network (with entries which you are creating on the host directly) and then associate the Azure web-jobs to this private network.

    Using this mechanism, you can avoid creating DNS entries and manage the entries from central place.

    Web-jobs when run in these private network would use the DNS entries configured to fetch the DNS mapping. You can read more about Azure DNS from here .
