Azure VNet peering Technical Level

Azure VNet peering is a feature available in Azure that allows customers to interconnect virtual networks in the same region.

With VNet peering, a user defined route used in one virtual network can point to a virtual machine in a peered virtual network. Using this approach one can create a hub-and-spoke environment where a Check Point Security gateway resides in a hub virtual network and inspects traffic originating in another virtual network before it is forwarded to a third virtual network.

For more information, refer to the following Microsoft articles:

Clustering and VNET peering

A User Defined route in one virtual network (VNET A) can point to the active member of a Check Point cluster residing in a cluster virtual network (Cluster VNET). During a cluster failover, the promoted cluster member will automatically modify this route.
To enable this functionality, the service principal used by the cluster should have the following permissions:

  • Read access on VNET A.
  • Read/Write access on the route tables used in VNET A.


  • This clustering feature is available starting from version 77.30.8028123
  • The peered virtual networks can belong to different subscriptions, as long as the two subscriptions are under the same Azure tenant
