It's been sitting at "THE GATEWAY WAS NOT CREATED." for hours after creating a Virtual Network in Azure. Is this normal? What should I do?

We previously created a network in the wrong DC, it didn't seem to be so slow then.

    Stupid me. Missed the "Create Gateway" button at the bottom. Blah I think the UI should be clearer. – timmah.faase Nov 22 '12 at 8:58

Yes, you need to click the create gateway button. :)

Also this can be done manually: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/igorpag/archive/2013/08/27/manually-adding-a-vpn-gateway-to-azure-virtual-network.aspx
