  1. 'Items not backed up' filtering to exclude known systems

    The tab in backup explorer showing 'Items not backed up' would be very useful for us to catch new systems that for whatever reason aren't included in backups.  There are a few though where this is a known and expected condition, they will never be included in the backup by design.  I would like a way to filter the view somehow, possibly by a tag I could put on the VM.  So rather than the default behavior of searching for where a tag is included, I would like to exclude systems that have a specific tag.

    Hi,

    There is few points im not sure how a big company like Microsoft missed to add it or ignoring adding them, which any basic backup software can do.

  11. Stop the HANA DB log backup from recovery services vault.

    Hi Team,

    We are using azure backup to protect the HANA DB and when we stop the DB backup from vault it only stop the full scheduled backup not the log backup and due to this we get the log backup failure alerts when we bring down the DB. Could anyone suggest how we could stop the DB full backup along with Log backup so that we won't get the Log backup failure alerts.

    Thanks.

  12. Retain instant recovery snapshot(s) for up to 30 days

    Currently instant recovery snapshots for an Azure VM can be retained for 5 days only.

    That means that on the 6th day the VM backup can be restored only from the vault (which can take as much as 24 hours), but not from a snapshot (which takes 10-15 minutes, in our experience).

    This limitation is very strange.

    We would like to keep all our backups in both the vault and as snapshots, to be able to recover the VM instantly after, for example, 14 days.

  14. show failed status for scheduled backup jobs of deleted items

    In doc https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-manage-vms, it shows that 'If Azure VMs configured for Azure backup are either deleted or moved without stopping protection, then both scheduled backup jobs and on demand (ad-hoc) backup jobs will fail with the error UserErrorVmNotFoundV2. The backup pre-check will appear as critical only for failed on-demand backup jobs (failed scheduled jobs are not displayed).'
    Customer hopes the portal can show some alerts or message for backup of deleted VMs. So that they clear up the backup resources in time.

  15. A disappointing solution

    Original French version as a result:

    I've been working with the Azure backup server solution since November 2019. Despite the fact that I opened several tickets and lost a lot of hours of work, we never had a fully successful backup schedule. It's a shame, because the solution still costs us expensive in cloud storage. But we have the impression that every time a Technician at Microsoft plugs in, he improvises and tries registry keys and other patents.

    For us, this solution is very disappointing and does not meet the quality standard that Microsoft should require of their solutions. Thank…

  16. Expand or alter Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint to return the number of recovery points for backup items

    Expand or alter Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint to return the number of recovery points for backup items.

    Currently the PowerShell command Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint is limited to return the recovery points with in a 30 day window. Therefore there is no easy way to audit how many total recovery points there are. I wish to use this as a quick glance report to spot VMs that haven't been configured properly (or failed the pre-checks) or the the backup policy has expired all recovery points.
