  • If you're installing Active Directory on Azure VM, it is recommended that you set an static IP for your DC. Because in Azure dynamic addresses are allocated by default. In case, if a VM is taken off for service healing or put on shutdown/deallocated state the IP address is released and a new IP is assigned once the VM restarts. So, If a static IP address is set that will persist through service healing and VM shutdown/restart.
