  3. Modify MARS agent back job properties directly from Azure portal.

    I'd be great to modify backup job details direclty from Azure Portal. Imagine having a server that is backing up D: volume. In order to change the volume from D: to C: I have to login locally to the server and do the change. Having a possibility of this change from Azure Portal would speed up the change.

  4. When enabling replication, add option to put objects in new Resource Group + Create new

    From my perspective it would be nice to have the ability to select the post-failover Resource Group when i'm enabling replication. And also able to create a new Resource Group in this step.

    Right now it will, if you don't manually create a resource group, and change it before test-failover/failover, put the objects in one big resource group. It will be a mess.

    Furthermore, when editing the VM after replication, before test-failover and failover, it would be nice to be able to create a new resource group. Not only select ones already created (Like everywhere else in Azure)

  5. Present retention weeks/months/years in Azure Recovery Services Agent dashboard/startpage (wabadmin.msc)

    Currently only days are presented, which is misleading.. See attached file.

    Small things matter, this minor improvement would be nice :)

  6. Triggering backup from dashboard report

    If we find any backup failure in the report - we should have facility to drill down to the appropriate vault and trigger (or reinitiate) backup for the failed one.

  7. Allow Backup in other subscriptions

    Today we cannot backup virtual machines in other subscription then the subscription your recovery service belongs to. This would be a good feature to have, as you can have a central backup function for several subscriptions

  8. Formal workaround for standalone 'server' Backup Vault name collisions.

    I want to backup files from lots of standalone (non-domain) Windows 2008+ servers and Windows 7 workstations distributed across many independent sites to a single subscription within our EA Azure, however there are too many identically named computers names to put one in each of the maximum 25 Backup Vaults in a single subscription. Spreading them across multiple subscriptions will make the overall management in Azure too difficult. It is not logistically or culturally feasible to fix this problem by neatly renaming the computers to have new unique names.

    I see two potential solutions:

    1) Getting these computers to talk…

  9. In cases of an Ad-Hoc backup (versus a scheduled one) - I would like to type in a description of why the ad-hoc was taken

    I use Azure recovery extensively for lab testing. Having a simple label associated with ad-hoc backup would be very useful.

  10. precheck

    Allow creation of alerts for Azure Backup Pre-check failures and warnings.
    The Azure backup pre-checks are a great feature but without alerting the features falls short of customer expectations.

  11. workstation backup : ability to have no planned backup, but can use "save now" option when I want

    Hi,
    In the current version of the workstation agent, we must have a minimum of one policy, and here I mean with a specific time to be executed. I noticed that if my machine is down (let's say supposed to backup at noon), and if I turn it on 2 hours later backup will start while I am working
    that would be fantastic to have a policy, but not force any specific time to be executed. Then, when I want, just need to click the "save now" button, with no impact on my work and if home no impact on…

  18. Azure Backup

    Azure Backup It is strange that when you take an old piece of software and give it a new name, and you really want us to use this... that you don't make sure that it is actually working. I am an administrator, we have azure... I have been given the task to create a new backup setup, I make a trial version of a Vault in the Azure, but the credentials are not valid to use for Azure Backup installation,,,, Same old Microsoft.

    You have once again killed the DPM by messing it up,,, Me I for sure will go…

  20. recovery services management interface bug

    While trying to use the management interface for backups and examining a backup vault, none of the tabs along the top ("registered items", "protected items", "configure, etc") respond to click in Win8.1/IE11. The interface stays on the default "dashboard" tab.

    These same items work as expected in Chrome.

    I'm sorry I don't know what other configuration information may be useful to reproduce this problem.
