VNet to VNet connection in Azure from different subscriptions

In case you need to connect subnets in different Azure subscription, you might come across the following (nice) article: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/vpn-gateway-vnet-vnet-rm-ps/
I just wanted to give a little more information based on my experience with the actions involved.

If you try to follow the steps to connect the subnets using pre-existing gateways, it will not work. You have to create the gateways using the provided instructions.
I suppose it is due to the fact that gateways created from the Portal have the "Basic" SKU (you can see it using the Resource Explorer).

The PowerShell instructions include a specific parameter named SKU and we have to pass the "Standard" value. At the time of the writing it is not possible to pass this parameter in the Portal, hence the need to use PowerShell to create the gateways.
