Site Recovery

Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Manager helps you automate protection and orchestrate recovery for your private clouds. In case of a disaster, users can initiate a recovery plan failover that can recover the virtual machines on the target site in orderly manner.

  1. Support for offline replication data transfer from on premise to Azure

    A feature that enables to faster, effective & secure export of large number of virtual machine replication storage using an external storage device and ship it to Azure for import.

  2. Automatically replicate the new disk

    Currently ASR after enabling protection for a virtual machine any new disks that are added to the virtual machine doesn't get replicated.

    This feature request is to support for a protected virtual machine to automatically replicate new disk.

  3. Windows Azure Support for Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC)

    Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC) is a state of the art HA technology for on premise world. It would be great to have support on Windows Azure, and specially to have support for SHARE DISKS. By supporting WSFC, Windows Azure would be the first IaaS platform that supports application HA!!

    We are working to understand the requirements of this feature and deliver it. If you have any scenarios or examples that might help us take a decision kindly give a detailed comment below.

  4. UEFI support for replicated VMs

    Currently ASR does not allow for VMs with UEFI boot volumes to replicate. This has put our deployment to a halt because of this fact. I would like to see future versions support UEFI volumes.

  5. Add Initial Seeding support for ASR

    We need the ability to seed ASR. Customer's who have terabytes of data on-premises and don't have a huge upload pipe need this ability. I'd like to be able to kick off the ASR job onto something like the Azure Data Box, and ship it to Azure to import the jobs. Then we can do normal deltas with ASR into Azure.

  6. ASR to keep track of VM changes in target region

    Issue:
    VM selection logic to auto-select the VM size for failover does not automatically change when there is any change (like decommissioning of VMsize selected during protection) on target region.
    Even when we manually change the Vmsize under compute and Network it shows all available and unavailable VMsizes for selections
    For the VM Size selections available not warning or details is available with the billing implications for the same

    Requirement:
    Need a feature where there is a cycle of check done for the auto selected VM Size to see if they are available on target region and run the logic…

  8. SLES 15 support for ASR

    My customer hopes that SLES 15 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15) will be supported for Azure Site Recovery in the near future. I'd like you to consider that as soon as possible.

  11. Please increase maximum retention to 5 days or more.

    Please consider the following scenario:

    A client in the UK gets a ransomware attack on Friday 30th March. The business is closed on Friday 30th (bank Holiday), Sat-Sun (weekend) and Monday 2nd (bank holiday). The IT Team return on Tuesday morning to find that the 24 hour of retention point are also all encrypted by the ransomware attack. If the client was only using premium storage then this would be the case even even there was not an extended bank holiday weekend. Microsoft must trust their partners who engage with real customers and deal with real scenarios in the real…

  12. Support long term retention or Backup integration

    When using Azure Site Recovery from an on-prem Hyper-V host (without VMM/DPM), storing 24 hours of snapshots doesn't met business requirements for Backup.

    Problem
    Azure Backup and ASR can't protect the same workload (and Azure Backup doesn't protect on premise VM's)

    Solution(s):
    Allow ASR to store long term retention
    or
    Implement an integration into Azure Backup.

    Notes: Given Azure backup DOES support backing up Azure VM's - if there was a way to schedule a backup of a test ASR VM that might work (as long as the test VM only spun up just long enough for the backup -…

    Interesting requirements. We are reviewing this. Will reach out to you for more details. Please use the comments to give more examples.

  13. Reporting for ASR

    It would be very useful to be able to generate a monthly report on the warnings and failures etc.. that ASR generates.

    Number of critical alerts
    Alerts by server
    Alerts by type

    Number of warnings
    Warnings by server
    Warning by type

    If possible, a (probable) reason for each alert
    1. The RPO being breached. (We set our RPO to a value less than agreed for the project so that we can flag any issues before they breach the actual RPO)
    2. Network/Connectivity/Maintenance (Updates/hardware replacment/failures)
    3. Disk resize.
    4. Replication services stopping/not starting correctly
    5. Conflicts during periods of high activity

  14. Recovery Service Vault, Backup storage Replication in ARM

    Currently there is no way to sepcify which storage replication is wanted when you create a Recovery Services Vault via ARM templates.

    The default when spinning up a vault is GRS, and the only way to change it is to log into the portal and choose LRS before any backups have been applied.

    The fact that the type of storage replication cannot be changed after a backup has been set does not help the situation.

    This makes automating infrastrucutre builds painful as I have to login and change the setting in the portal before i am able to continue adding…

  15. be able to setup a Azure Backup to protect my Sharepoint Online data with a large retention

    We really need a way to protect SharePoint Online with a large retention time (3 till 6 months). Let Azure Backup kick-in for this point so we are able to set the right RPO ( Recovery point objective ) for this service.

  17. Support for Linux VMs on Hyper-V with a static IP address

    The current version of ASR will protect a Generation 1 VM running Linux, but if the guest operating system is using a static IP address (more than likely if it's a server) then when the protected VM is failed over in to Azure, the network interface is not reconfigured to support the DHCP requirements for the Azure Resource Manager Network Interface.

    This has the effect that the VM's networking stack never initialises properly and the failover cannot complete successfully.

    From the same environment, a VM running Windows with a static IP is reconfigured correctly during the failover process and the…

  18. Failback from Azure to VMware without a backup of the original Configuration Server

    After replicating VMware to Azure using Azure Site Recovery, it should not be necessary to require a backup of the original Configuration Server prior to a disaster event occurring on premise. If in the event of a disaster, we failover our VMs to Azure, and then recover a new VMware site from scratch, we think we should be able to failback directly from Azure to the new on-premises VMware site. We think it is redundant to require a second, configuration, server just for the purpose of recreating our on premise deployments.

    As of 4 March 2019 ASR supported replication to unmanaged disks from on-prem hyper-v and VMWare VMs to Azure. This feature has been removed on 5 March 2019 (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/updates/protect-vms-azure-managed-disks/). Please resore ASP ability to replicate to unmanged disks.
