  2. Need a notification of backup success using MARS Agent backup.

    Currently we don't have any notification setting for successful backup job. To monitor the backup job, we wants successful backup job notification in case user erroneously deleted backup policy, If user deletes backup policy, we don't get any error even there is no job created and no one notices it. So we needs notification for successful backup job.

  3. Forecast on Selected Items To Backup in the Schedule Backup Wizard

    Hi Azure Microsoft Team

    Highly appreciate if you can calculate or forecast the amount of storage size on the selected items to backup in the Schedule Backup Wizard Interface so that we can determine the file size storage are being backup rather than after the backup job success.

    It will be another awesome feature to be added.

    Thank you

  4. Add MAB (MARS) support to Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupJob

    "Get Jobs cmdlet doesn't support MAB workloads. Even though the APIs support it, but the PowerShell module only supports AzureVM, AzureFiles, and AzureWorkload today."

    Please add support.

  6. 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!

  7. Add Alert Feature for Stalled Agents

    On several occasions I have come across the situation where I have logged onto a server and noticed the Azure backup agent has gone into a stalled state where it is not performing a backup or reporting to the portal. Had I not logged onto the server and noticed this I would have assumed the backup was running fine with no issues.

    Can you create a check and alert for agent health?

  9. "1 minute increments" Schedule setting by MARS Agent Backup

    Please enable MARS Agent Backup to schedule in 1 minute increments.
    For example, We want to schedule at 0:15.
    A more detailed backup schedule setting can be realized.

  10. Azure backup client v9083 not working with new Onedrive client on W10 Slowring 16251

    This agent version in combination with an update of my Onedrive client on W10 slowring (build 16251), does not backup any locally stored Onedrive files to Azure anymore.
    The MAB mmc returns 'Data failure 0x80990ab7' and files are no longer in the backup. Any backup made with older Onedrive clients are okay, but I'm lacking the newest files.

    You might ask why I backup Onedrive files in Azure, as they are already in the MSFT cloud. But this is the consumer version of Onedrive, so no guarantees from MSFT incase of failure. :-)

    Please feel free to follow-up on this.

  11. Make bandwidth throttling a universal setting

    We can currently set bandwidth limits at each server we backup through the agent. It would be extremely helpful if we could set the limits through the portal, either universally (as in Azure backups consume that ammount of bandwidth as a whole service and distributes it evenly between active backups), or individually for each server but through a policy, so we do not have to login to each server and change the settings from the agent installed locally.

  12. Backup a Replicated machine and be able to restore files.

    Having servers under the replicated items should mean the entire server is there. Can't this be archived or have a snapshot that turns this into a backup that can have file restore and server restore features performed at certain intervals like hourly, daily, weekly, monthly such as a normal backup? This should replace MABS since it is much more streamlined anyway.

  14. How To View Files/Folder Differential Backup Details?

    There should be an option or a log of the detailed files/folders added/changed in the differential backups especially for daily backups.

  17. 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.

  18. Solve that Azure Backup agent resets the online retention policy to default

    We have found that for some reason when the Azure Backup agent doesn’t agree with our settings for backup times/recovery points, the settings are reset to their default values.
    When we set these backup times, it reverts to the default schedule without any warning. You’ll find out about this the next time you change the protection group.

  19. Allow multiple retention policies for different folders

    You can only have one retention policy per server. I want to have a different backup job for a specific folder, that does not need daily backups and apply a different retention policy to it. This is not possible currently.

  20. Allow recovery in another server without VaultCredentials

    I wanted to create an automated daily recovery (powershell) in another server, then found out that I needed VaultCredentials. Would be great if I could use somekind of VaultCredentials with longer-than 2-day expiry
