Creating a connection between two Microsoft Azure Gov locations
You can create a Dynamic Connection to connect two Microsoft Azure Gov locations. To create the connection, you'll need ExpressRoute service keys from Microsoft. Be sure to have that information handy to type in (or copy/paste).
Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection. The ExpressRoute service key is a unique service key and is different from the service key for your cloud service from Azure.
To create a connection between two Microsoft Azure Gov locations:
Click Orders, then click Dynamic Connections - Ethernet.
Control Center lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
Click Create Connection.
In the From Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure Gov).
In the To Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure Gov).
Fill in the information for the connection:
Fill in the two ExpressRoute Service Key fields with the service keys provided by Microsoft. (Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection. The ExpressRoute service key is a unique service key and is different from the service key for your cloud service from Azure.)
Once you fill in the ExpressRoute service key, Control Center retrieves connection information from Microsoft.
In the Billing Method field, select whether you want hourly or monthly billing.
In the Class of Service field, select whether you want Basic, Enhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)
In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection. By default, Control Center selects the lowest bandwidth associated with the service key you entered. You can adjust the bandwidth up/down based on your needs.
Control Center displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.
In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.
Review your connection information and then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)
Click Create Connection.
Control Center creates the request for the connection and places it in Pending Activation status. From here, you can either view the status of your request (click the list link) or close the window (click Close) to do something else in Control Center.
