Windows Admin Center (preview)

Windows Admin Center, which is in preview as of this writing, can be used in the Azure portal to manage Window Server operating system inside Azure virtual machine without using remote desktop or PowerShell.

The following virtual machines csan be manged by Windows Admin Center

  • Windows Server 2022
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2016

An inbound port is required for public IP address to connect to the virtual machine, which is not recommended. Since an inbound port is not required for private IP, it should be used to connect to the virtual machine although it does require access to the virtual network, and cane accomplished by using a VPN gateway.
