  1. 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

  2. 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.

  4. 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?

  6. "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.

  7. 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.

  9. Azure Backup for MacOSX

    Please release an Azure Backup client for MacOSX. The third party clients are buggy and too expensive.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Azure Backup for x86 Windows Client

    It will be better if Azure BaaS can support x86 for all Windows OS. This will perfectly work for those who does not have SCDPM.

  16. Increase frequency for Azure Backup Agent.

    Given that the backup agent already supports incremental backup, it would be good to see the frequency increased to support 1hr backups.

  17. DC Bare-Metal/System Backup Directly to Azure Cloud

    We are looking for such Microsoft Solution which can help customers to take Domain Controller Bare-metal/System State backups directly to Azure Recovery Vault/Cloud without using LOCAL DISKS.

    We are aware about MABS/DPM but both these products uses Local disks before sending data to Azure Cloud. Kindly work on such solution and definitely this can help lots of customers.

  19. Vault Credentials/key the same-Restore from other server *no prompt!

    If the MARS agent is registered on a computer with the same Vault and Key as another server, there should not be a reason to download the Vault Credential file again when using the "Restore from Other Server" option.

  20. Separate backup jobs within MARS Agent

    Separate backup jobs within MARS Agent. Currently, there is only one backup job that can be created within the MARS Agent. We should have the ability to create several different jobs with various schedules and data sets to back up. Not all data can be backed up at the same time. It would also make it a bit easier to restore as in not having to mount the VHDX file that stores all the data sets backed up.
