I did just that and it more or less worked perfectly. I had one simple issue and that is when I tries to create Azure Bastion host in Azure Marketplace. I got an error stating that my subscription is not registered for bastion resource type,

The subscription is not registered for the resource type ‘bastionHosts’. Please check that the resource type exists and re-register for this provider in order to have access to this resource type.

but it clearly shown as registered.

PS Azure:\> Get-AzureRmProviderFeature -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Network

FeatureName       ProviderName      RegistrationState
-----------       ------------      -----------------
AllowBastionHost  Microsoft.Network Registered
AllowCortexAccess Microsoft.Network Registered

PS Azure:\>

Since this is in preview state, it will be fixed. Also it is possible that my Azure subscription was just acting up. 🙂 So what I did, I created a Azure Bastion host directly from target vNet and it worked as charm!

After successful HTTPS connection to your host, you get a screen like this
