  • Question

  • Hi , 

    I was looking for documentation to setup distributed availability group on the Azure VM's , I looked at msdn site but couldn't find anything specific to azure distributed availability groups setup steps . 

    Looking for guidance on distributed AG implementation steps for Azure VM's.

  • Hi sangem18,

    Do you need to build two WSFC clusters on Azure VM and create availability groups on each cluster, and then create distributed availability groups across these two separate availability groups.

    I suggest you read the MS document  Tutorial: Configure a SQL Server availability group on Azure Virtual Machines manually and Configure an Always On distributed availability group.

  • Hi Sangem,

    MS does not have docs for DAG in Azure yet, you may refer the articles suggested by Chis.

    They process is very similar. Please note, when you great DAG , make sure the two AG in deployed in same region, else you have to deploy virtual network gateway or other feature to connect two regions...
