19/07/2017: UPDATED for the Azure Stack Dev Kit
Welcome back folks. In the last guide we deployed a single node Azure Stack POC and uploaded a Server 2016 Image to the gallery. In part 2 we’re going to deploy both the MSSQL and MySQL resource providers. Microsoft have done a great job of making this a fairly straightforward endeavour so I don’t expect this to be too meaty a post
Here’s a high level list of what we’ll be going over:

Previous Post in Series: Part 10: Deploy and Configure SDN Software Load Balancer Service
Welcome to part 11 of my Server 2016 Features Series, I thought it was worth posting on this one because I managed to brick my SDN environment (in my lab) because I just went for it without following any real process…COME ON, we’ve all done it
There won’t be much new in here that Greg Cusanza at MS hasn’t covered in the great documentation he uploaded recently, so if nothing else, you’ll get a similar experience to that but with a slight Scottish flavour
At the time of writing, backup and restore of SDN was introduced in the most recent Cumulative Update, and as I alluded to earlier, getting this piece wrong can break your SDN environment, so it’s important that you get it right.
OK, that’s enough scaremongering…let’s get to it.

Previous Post in Series: Part 9: Deploy and Configure SDN Network Controller Service
Welcome to part 10 of my Server 2016 Features series. This guide will continue on from parts 8 and 9 where we learned a little about SDN v2 in Server 2016 and deployed our multi node Network Controller service (which is a prerequisite for our Software Load Balancer service). Going forward, I’ll be referring to our Software Load Balancer service as the SLB or SLB/MUX
As with the Network Controller service, this deployment will be done using a multi node (3 nodes) Service Template deployed by SCVMM.
Here’s a list of the tasks we’ll be covering:
With no further ado, let’s get to it.
