Part 3 of my series on setting up a SharePoint 2016 development farm on Azure. In this article, we will create a SQL Server 2014 virtual machine (sqlVM) in the virtual network we created in Part 2 of this series. We will make sqlVM a member of the Windows Server AD domain, and prepare it for SharePoint.
