Create a new Active Directory forest in Azure

Today I released another free video: Creating an Active Directory Forest in Azure.

This video shows you how to do some newish things with Azure. The main one is setting static IPs and editing the DNS server for the virtual network using the Portal. All of the other guidance out there shows you only some crazy PowerShell. I love PowerShell but not when I am trying to learn how to do things in Azure. For learning I prefer good ole clicky-clicky with a mouse.

In this video we walk through creating a new active directory domain using two Azure IaaS VMs. Topics covered include:
* Azure Availability Sets, Resource Groups, and Virtual Networks
* Setting static IPs and DNS Settings
* DCPromo

Let me know in the comments what topics you want to see covered next.
