  4. azure vm backup policy - implement daylight saving time

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, summer time is not supported. Please refer below.

    I want this feature because creating a backup strategy for a complete Azure infrastructure can be a big problem. It already makes sure that the backup runs at 2:00 o'clock or at 3:00 o'clock.

    Many Greetings
    Fabrice

    No. The date and time on your local computer is local with current daylight savings applied. The time set for scheduled backups might differ from the local time due to DST.

  5. supported disk size still shows as 1 TB in portal

    while azure supports upto 4 TB, we are seeing limit as 1 TB in portal. This needs to be fixed

  7. Make Azure VM restore one click

    Here's an idea...how about you make restoring an existing VM one-click?
    I know..revolutionary idea.
    The amount of unnecessary complexity involved in restoring a VM is simply ridiculous.
    Im guessing 99.99% of users would just want to rollback an existing VM to a previous version.
    They dont want to create a new VM. They dont want to create new disks in a different storage account.
    They dont want to spend an hour in powershell trying to get blob copy to work puzzling over cryptic error messages.
    How about you simplify the restore process because the current process is simply dreadful.

  8. Autodiscover VM to backup in other subscription

    The backup vault has this nice feature to autodiscover and deploy the backup agents to the VM on the same subscription (no need to get the credential and install the agent the VM like with the on-prem scenario)
    A good practice is to secure the backup vault in a dedicated subscription (to save backups not at the same place ad the VM) but in that case the autodiscovery" feature does not work anymore.
    It would be great to be able to autodeploy agents on VM from other subscriptions

  9. Is restoration possible even after your azure in open credits are over?

    My Azure in Open credits is over. Soon I will be adding credits to the subscription. For my subscription, I have only one service i.e. Azure Backup for Files and Folders. Is it possible for me to restore files even though my credits are over?

  10. Transition licensing for Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS)

    It would be great, if existing System Center customers with correct licensing could bring their own license (System Center License) and don't have to pay the same price. This will enable some System Center DPM to transition directly to Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS)

  13. Backup Onpremise Workload and Restore on Azure VM

    Dear Team, With Azure we have solution to backup on-premise Physical/Virtual Machines in Azure Storage Account but we want a solution to restore same backup on Azure VM rather then bringing our onpremise server up and restore the data. Please work on this idea as this will really help in additional manual work.

  14. Automatically Discover New Databases for backup management type "SQL Server in Azure VM"

    I'm looking at the features of backup management type "SQL Server in Azure VM". Would it be possible to add a feature that automatically detects new databases added to an instance, and backup them up.

    At the moment, it looks like I'll need to manually add a new database to the backed up items every time I add a database to an instance.

  16. Documents of Azure Backup Server for customers who don't know SCDPM.

    I want to share the Azure Backup Server with IT pro/customers/partners who don't know SCDPM.
    Currently the Azure Backup Server's documents need to know SCDPM.
    But the Azure Backup Server don't need to know SCDPM information.
    the Azure Backup Server is easy for more SMB market IT Pro.

  17. Intelligent compression setting

    Synopsis
    At this point in time, the preview supports SQL compression by enabling it on policy level. This however simply enforces the parameter, without taking into account if it's even possible. This means a web edition installation will fail because the syntax isn't supported.

    Description
    Because of the above mentioned scenario, it's currently required to have a policy specifically for web edition instances, even if you want the exact same retention as other environments.
    This could be solved by looking at the SQL edition, and enforcing non-compression on web edition instances.

  18. Migrate Servers to Another Vault In A Different Azure Tenant

    We have numerous servers being backed up to an Azure Backup vault in Tenant A. We would like to move a subset of these servers to a different vault in a separate Tenant B without having to start the migration from scratch.
    Any tools to enable us to do this would be welcomed!
