Azure Site Replication for Azure to On-Premises
Is it possible to replicate virtual machines and storage from Azure to On-premises using Azure Site Recovery?

We need this also. It looks like it's the same request as this one: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/256299-site-recovery/suggestions/8226570-replication-from-azure-to-on-premises
So it's under review for more than two years now?

We need this also. Right now Azure is like Hotel California - you can check in to Azure, but you can never leave.
We are accustomed to Hyper-V Replica where we can start with a machine in any location and fail it over to another location. Currently there is no way to initiate ASR from a machine that originated in Azure back to on-prem; and furthermore the button "Complete Migration" if accidentally pressed breaks the link to on-prem, and the only way to restart this is to copy the VHD down to on-prem, then re-setup the link.
