Install and configure SQL AlwaysON AG with Listener on Azure

Adding the Listener

enable_always_on_step_55
After creating the AlwaysOn Availability Group, you should have a new Role in the Failover Cluster Manager. Right Click the Role > Add Resource > Client Access Point
enable_always_on_step_56
Give the listener a hostname. This will also be a computer AD object. Click Next
enable_always_on_step_57
See the confirmation. Click Next
enable_always_on_step_58
Click Finish
enable_always_on_step_59
Right Click IP Address: Address on Cluster Network 1 > Properties
enable_always_on_step_60
Select Static IP address and add an address within the same subnet, but different from the Cluster IP chosen previously.
enable_always_on_step_61
Bring the Role online. Right Click Name: > Bring Online
enable_always_on_step_62
The Role is now online. If this step fails or if the Name: does not come online, then you did not set the permissions correctly here: AD Delegated Permissions. If you did set the permissions properly, double check the OU. The OU with the permissions NEEDS to be the SAME OU as the cluster hostname.

We need to edit a dependency, so click on the other resource > Properties
enable_always_on_step_64
Click on the Dependencies tab and ensure that the resource is the same as Name:
enable_always_on_step_65

Right click the role > Stop Role. Wait for it to stop
enable_always_on_step_66
Right click the role > Start Role. Wait for it to start
enable_always_on_step_67
Once roles have been started, you should see the Listeners on each SQL Server Availability Group.
