Adding route to route table for virtualappliance RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently trying to follow the new 'how to' guide on Azure for adding routes to the route table in order for my VM's to send traffic towards a virtual appliance.


    When adding a route to the route table the following commands should be used: 

    Set-AzureRoute -RouteTableName FrontEndSubnetRouteTable `
    -RouteName FirewallRoute -AddressPrefix `
    -NextHopType VirtualAppliance `

    The problem I'm facing is that whenever i try to pull this off I get the Error 'Set-AzureRoute : BadRequest: The next hop type VirtualAppliance is not supported yet. Please use next hop type VPNGateway.'

    The Error seems kinda self-explanatory but according to the Azure websites this should have been supported for about 2 to 3 weeks.

     Is there anything I'm doing wrong? Hope you guys can help me out.

  • Hello ReneLui,

    I suggest that you enter the Next hop type value to VPN Gateway (If you have a gateway) and check if you get any errors.
    As per the documentation I see that the Next hop value: Virtual Appliance is supported. You will also need to give the Nexthop Value when you use Next Hop type as: Virtual Appliances.

    Refer to the parameters defined in the article below:
