Posted On July 24, 2021
A virtual network administrator (VN) is a computer user that has administrative access to a network or network service.
The most common roles of a VN are network administrators, network administrators with administrative privileges, network admin, network administrator with access to network resources, and network administrator without administrative privileges.
You can create a VNs account and use it to manage network security.

To create a new VN account, log into Azure AD.
In the Network Administration section, click the Admin tab.
In Administer Network Security, click New Virtual Network.
The New Virtual New Virtual network wizard appears.
To complete the wizard, click Create.

For example, to create a Virtual New Network with name VN1, click Add.
On VN 1, enter a description, such as VN, Network Name, or Network ID.
The Name and Security Description fields are optional.
For details about the VN name and security description, see the network admin role in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
