How to check the Hybrid Connection in Azure Website (Webapp)


Hi, this article will helpful for you to check the hybrid connection in Azure Website (Web App).


Lets assume we have 2 Web Apps and 2 On-Premises database servers, Both the webapps required on-premises database access, for this scenario we can use Azure Hybrid connection.

Architecture of Web apps and Hybrid connection

  • Website 1 : Wants to access DB Server 1 & DB Server 2
  • Website 2 : Wants to access DB Server 1 only
To achieve this we need to create two hybrid connections for each db and we can share it with websites.


Once you successfully created hybrid connection and configured listener setup. we need to ensure whether our website connected to our DB Server or not. So open the Azure portal (old or new).

1. Select the website

2. Click Browse website
      * Lets assume our website URL is
      * Change the URL to

3. Now you will enter into Kudu management portal

4. Select Debug console -> CMD

5. We are in the remote console of our VM (dedicated to our web app now, we can't take remote of this)

6. To check the DB Server connection status type nameresolver.exe  
      ex: nameresolver.exe dbserver1

if website able to identify the DB server it will show as above

if website not able to identify DB server it will show above error
 7. In case it shows "Can't find" error, make sure your are created the proper hybrid connection, listener setup and added to our website.
