  1. Administrative Management on Soft Delete on Backup

    There are instances where customer would like to purge the previous Backup Data and start afresh but the limitation to trigger new Backup after 14 days do not let them to suffice the requirement. Also, if we want to change the recovery service vault to configure new Backup, it doesn't allow it to configure instantly and hence, it would be highly recommended to provide administrative access on soft delete if it can be disabled to configure new backup and then can be re-enabled.

  2. Specify alert mail for Recovery Services vault Data deletion

    Currently, when we delete Azure Backup data in Recovery Services vault, the alert Email will be received within the subscription range.
    We want to specify this Email address. Because we can specify alert Email address, Email will not be sent to unrelated accounts on subscription.
    And we can avoid the impact of sending information to accounts that don’t need alert emails due to security issues.

  4. Make it easier to delete Recovery Services Vaults used for backup

    If I backup an IaaS VM, I can't delete the vault for 14 days due to the soft-delete feature.

    I can understand the motivation - to avoid accidental deletion.

    However, this is a huge pain point in testing / training scenarios. We *need* the ability to fully clean up a test / training environment and start over.

  5. When there is a problem with the backup target file, skip and backup other files. Also, please implement a detailed log that can be confirme

    Normally, files locked by other applications are skipped, backups are taken, and skipped files are written in the log.
    However, other than the above cases (such as file corruption), the backup job stuck and an Issue occurred that the backup did not end. (In this case it was Active for over a week)
    If backup does not progress due to file check etc. for a certain period of time, please skip the backup of the corresponding file, and please implement "detailed log" is kept as to "which file" and "reason".
    Also, since skipped files can currently only be checked on…

  6. Selectively delete backups, and choice to delete backups without 14 days retention

    There are instances whereby we want a complete/selective deletion of backup data without the 14 days retention policy. Currently, when I choose to backup a particular folder on my server using the MARS agent, and decide that I want a complete wipe of that data from Azure, I have to stop the backup policy and wait for 14 days for total deletion. In-between these 14 days, I'm stuck without an option to backup to Azure if I require a clean slate.

  7. You need to give us the option to delete backups before 14 days

    I am building a pipeline to automate the backup config process which requires running the pipeline many times for testing which in turn requires deleting the vault many times, this 14 days lock really does not do me any good for this use case.

  8. Changing the managed disk name at the time of restore

  9. Even with encrypted VM, VM can be restored by "Replace Disk".

    Currently, encrypted VMs are not eligible for "Replace Disk" as described in the following public information.

    Title: Restore Azure VMs
    Address: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-arm-restore-vms
    ----
    Replace existing is supported for unmanaged managed VMs. It is not supported for unmanaged disks, generalized VMs, or for VMs created using custom images.
    ----
    From the security point of view as well, it is possible that the number of encrypted VMs will increase in the future, so there is a need for an easier recovery method.

    Currently, encrypted VMs can only be restored from "disk restores". We should also implement VM restoration with "disk replacement" of…

  10. 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.
