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.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Service?

  1. Powershell interface for ASR in Azure to Azure scenario

    We need a way to run a failover by powershell interface so that we can automate it. It would be nice if powershell interface option is supported in Azure to Azure scenario.

    • Enable Windows Server 2016 running on VMWare or physical servers be supported

      Currently, the Windows Server 2016 isn't supported running on VMWare or physical servers. Why wouldn't that be supported? Any idea of when it will be supported? I see you have 70 votes on another post like mine.

        • Azure Site Recovey - Oracle Linux 6.6 or above support

          Currently Azure Site Recovery only support versions 6.4 and 6.5 ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/site-recovery-support-matrix-to-azure )

          As Oracle Linux is Red Hat Enterprise and ASR support more recent versions of Red Hat Enterprise it would very important support new versions of Oracle Linux as Red Hat Enterprise

          Regards

          • I want to protect Windows client operating systems like Windows 10, 8.1, 8 - and recover them to Azure in case of a disaster.

            Our workforce uses client operating systems to do the real work. In case of a disaster, recovering them is important to keep the business running.

            • multi-language support for Azure Site Recovery on-premises configuration server

              For the Azure Site Recovery On-premises configration server there is a limitation that operating system should be in English.
              In Japan oparting system is usually in Japanese.
              I'd like to use an operating system in Japanese to configure an on-premises configuration server.

                • Mobility Service install hangs if other services depend on Virtual Disk service

                  When installing the Mobility Service, regardless of method. The install will hang if there is another service (example Veeam) that depends on the Virtual Disk service. One workaround is to manually stop Virtual Disk and then taskkill net1.exe process allowing the install to continue.

                  • 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

                    • Better ASR Documentation - Windows Hyper-V 2016

                      I recently set configured my two Hyper-V host servers with ASR. The documentation available on the Microsoft website focused on a GUI based installation. There was no documentation to help with command line only installations. My two tripping points where:

                      1) There was no warning that running the AzureSiteRecoveryProvider executable in Server Core would crash at both "browse" for vault key step (as there is no file explorer) and the "Registration" step (as there is no Internet Explorer). I had to search forum posts about command line based install

                      2) The command line help does not provide examples of fully…

                        • ASR Uninstall feature

                          The process of deploying ASR components and standup a Config process server is straightforward and simple for those who have worked already on it. However, in cases where we need to uninstall and reinstall the entire setup, the uninstall process is very messy. Uninstalling all the services that are installed does not suffice. In addition there are some files in the registry that are left over. It would be great if we can come up with a simple uninstallation process that can cleanup everything neatly without left overs.

                          • Email notification or RSS Feed for "known issues". (business impact)

                            It would be helpful to have an RSS Feed or email distribution so when "known Issues" internal to microsoft are "known", the community in general will also know.

                            for example, there was a hotfix for an issue created with UR12 for system center affecting replication. Our engineering team had to open a case with microsoft.

                            https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54854

                            Admittedly, in this case, the title of the article for the hotfix does not imply that it fixes our specific replication issue which was caused by UR12 but when we call in and are told it is a "known Issue", it would be nice…

                              • Validation/Notification of Inability to Restore VM to Cloud Service

                                Need a way to provide a notification or alert that restoring a VM to a cloud service which is associated with a reserved IP is not possible BEFORE the copying disks instead of waiting until it has copied and then is staring to provision the VM. This can waste a large amount of time for a user that is not aware of this deficiency.

                                  Probably been suggested before.

                                  More options for replication cycles e.g Exclusions for VM's/Disks as well as time exclusions. Better options than 1 minute, 2 minutes & 15 Minutes..

                                  • 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.

                                      For server migrations to Azure, have a button to set a server for high priority for replication.

                                      Therefor on scheduled migrations to Azure the Process server places a higher priority on the server that will be moved in the next 24 hours (or so).

                                        Please add support to replicate to Managed Disks. They simplify design and offer many benefits post-failover.

                                        • Add Another Failovertype for Azure Automation

                                          Ideally we use Automation to deploy additional assets during a failover, including test failover. However, when we run a cleanup after a test failover, the complete recovery plan is not run. I would like the option to modify my runbooks to detect a failovertype of cleanup (in addition to planned, unplanned, and test) so I can undo whatever I did, and have the runbook executed during the cleanup.
