Static Public IP for AVD or WVD..

Looking to assign a staic public IP address to my classic and newly provisioned Azure Virtual Desktops.  Any ideas?  I can only see the option to assign public IP per VM NIC.

Got it. Issue is that the latest AVD setup I have is within the production subnet and vnet for other VMs, so I don’t think I can use a natgw here..

can the AVD setup be reconfigured for it’s own vnet and subnet? I guess this is the recommended config? I can then use the


can I just allocate public ips to the AVD vms?

It is quite a complex process to move VMs between vNets. The process is either to delete the VMs and then create again using the existing Harddisk or usea recovery vault and backup&restore.

You could create a new Subnet in your current vNet then this would allow you to change the subnet the AVDs are in and then you can associate the new vNet to the NAT Gateway. You may need to adjust the address space for the vNet to allow you to create the subnet.
When you create the subnet; select an AVD VM, Select Networking under settings, Select the Network Interface, Select IP Configuration then there is a dropdown beside Subnet, select your new subnet and click Save, if the VM is powered on it will reboot.
If you want to test this you could create a test VM in your current subnet and complete the steps above
