Develop Hyperledger fabric Consortium and deploy on Microsft Azure VM – Part-1

In this blog ,I am going to explain How to Create first blockchain network using Hyperledger Fabric on Microsoft Azure VM.

There are two ways to Deploy Hyper-ledger Fabric Network on Azure
1- Using Hyperledger Fabric template available in the Azure Marketplace.
2- Manually Setting Up Environment on Azure VM and Install Fabric ,Setup first network.

In this blog i will cover 2nd option Manually Setting Up Environment on Azure and create consortium with 3 organisation as given below


Build a fabric network from scratch
1- Ubuntu 16.04 VM (you can also use Mac)

  • Docker – v1.13 or higher
  • Docker Compose – v1.8 or higher
  • Node.js & npm – node v6.2.0 – v6.10.0 (v7+ not supported); npm comes with your node installation.
  • Git client – needed for clone commands
  • Go – version 1.9.x

Step-1- Choose Ubuntu Server

Step-2 Create VM

Step-3 – Downlod Hyperledger Composer and provide permission

Connect VM using local Account through ssh

Execute below script after that for hyperledger composer


Step 3 — Install Go Language

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get -y upgrade

Step 4- Now download GO binaries

Step-5 Install GO Code and move to desired location

  • sudo tar -xvf go1.11.linux-amd64.tar.gz
  • sudo mv go /usr/local

Step-5 Setup GO Root

  • export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
  • export GOPATH=$HOME/go
  • export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH

Step-6 Update current shell session

source ~/.profile

Step-7 Verify Installation

  • go version
  • go env


Clone code to your home directory to setup network and install chain code

Download platform binaries

curl -sSL | bash -s 1.4.1 1.4.1 0.4.6

Export path

export PATH=<path to download location>/bin:$PATH

Step-9-Install network

cd fabric-samples/first-network

Step-10 Generate Certificates

./ -m generate

Step-11 Bring network Up

./ -m up
