- Open the email you received from BeyondTrust Technical Support and select the Click Here for your BeyondTrust Virtual Appliance (Azure) for ERS link to download the BomgarERS_azure.exe file.
- Click BomgarERS_azure.exe within your browser to begin installation.
- If you receive a Security Warning prompt, click Run.
- Choose where you wish the files to be extracted to on your desktop. Click Extract.
- Wait for the files to extract. You can review the Elapsed Time, Remaining Time, and blue progress bar to see how extraction is progressing.
- When extraction is complete, the BomgarERS_azure.exe, Deploy_AzureBomgarVM.ps1, and Bomgar-br.v.2.vhd files appear in the location you designated during the extraction process. Right-click on the Deploy_AzureBomgarVM.ps1 PowerShell script and click Edit.
- Once the PowerShell script opens, locate STEP 1 and modify the following variables based on the specifics of your Microsoft Azure environment:

- vnet Name
- subnet Name
The vmName does not need to be changed.
- In the Azure console, set the appliance's external IP to Static. Then assign your DNS entry to that external IP.
- Or, apply a DNS name within Azure. Set a CNAME record pointed to that address.
No further network or console configuration is needed for Azure-based appliances. Please continue to Register and Update the BeyondTrust Virtual Appliance
