  1. Option for IaaS restore of VM to not automatically start

    Currently, a restore VM will start automatically, which will cause the restored data to change since applications / jobs will run. And it can cause conflicts if that system tries to interact with other systems.

  3. Please offer simple Disaster Recovery set up option for clients who are using cloud service like AWS. In India

    In India, AWS has data centre only in Mumbai. As per Government of India Disaster Recovery (DR) requirement the DR set up should be in different seismic zone and atleast 300 kms apart. Many AWS customers in India, like me would also become your customer if you launch this service. Also, GOI does not allow data to be located outside India. Hence cant use AWS international data centres.

  5. 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…

  6. DPM current branch updates available and installed via console

    Making current branch updates available for download and install via the DPM console is something that would make the management of current branch updates easier. The SCCM team do a great job of in-console updates and a similar method would be great

  9. Non Local Admin Rights to Manage Azure Backup

    We have a scenario where our local site servers are managed by 3rd Party A from an operating system perspective but they have Azure Backup installed which is managed by 3rd Party B. I have made aware that for Party B to manage Azure Backup including restores they need local Admin access which Party A are reluctant to give for obvious reasons.

    Please can we work it so that users only need to be put in Backup Operators (for example) in order to do this management.

  10. Make it freaking easier to install

    I have been trying unsuccessfully for over a month to get a simple cloud backup going for our Windows server.
    I have been led down one wrong path after another and many times it seems there are 15 steps involved in what should be 1 step.it still is not working. I am looking for other options from other providers.

  11. I suggest to have AZURE RECOVERY SERVICES be able to fully backup a WINDOWS 10 Workstation.

    I suggest to have AZURE RECOVERY SERVICES be able to fully backup a WINDOWS 10 Workstation. Not simply backup files, but the whole system so in case of a disaster, we can easely recover it from AZURE as VM.

  12. Bug: Typo on Backup Vault configuration page

    There is a typo on the Backup Vault -> Configure page for the storage replication's tool-tip, where it says: "The Geo-Redundant option maintains 3 copies of your data locally and 3 copties in a secondary storage region." As you can see the copies is misspelled the second time as "copties".

  17. Better restore options

    The "Instant File Recovery from Cloud using Azure Backup" which is in the preview is a horrible way to restore files. Since Azure Backup retains the files and folder permissions it is not possible to restore files and folders that have been restricted unless you know to the precise path of the file. Most users do not know this path due to mapped drives and/or shares that do not reflect the true path on the files server.

    Since the mounted VHD files from Azure Backup is not a writable media it is not possible to reset the permissions, thus you…

  19. Need to simplify file recovery from backups.

    I could not follow "Recover files from Azure virtual machine backup". It was my 1st attempt.

    The above does not clearly state the need to complete the process on a different system with the same operating system as the vm. (I tried it on my Windows 10 PC and my own Ubuntu vm).

    Working with Diego Vega (Support Engineer) I was able to recover the file I needed. His help, by the way, was excellent and professional.

    The solution was to create an new vm, download a script, run the file recovery process, download the file I needed to my…

  20. False backup failure alert should be stopped for passive cluster node

    Currently we have backup scheduled for SQL which runs on a two node cluster. We are getting backup failure from the passive node.

    Ideally backup will happen only on active node. Hence there should be some intelligence built into backup solution so that it doesn't generate notification for passive nodes.
