Change a Virtual Network Gateway Routing Type
Updated: April 14, 2015
If you need to change a virtual network gateway routing type, from static to dynamic or dynamic to static, you’ll delete the existing gateway, and then recreate it with the new routing type. You don’t need to delete the entire virtual network in order to change the gateway routing type.
For example, if you created your virtual network gateway as a static routing gateway for your site-to-site VPN and you later want to add point-to-site connectivity, delete and recreate your virtual network gateway as a dynamic routing gateway. Be sure to verify that your VPN device will support the routing type that you want to use. To download new routing configuration templates and check VPN device requirements, see About VPN Devices for Virtual Network Connectivity.
