  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.

  3. Implement CLI command that can export/import an entire Key Vault to a file.

    If a customer wants to backup or restore the contents of a key vault, the customer is forced to export/import keys, secrets and certificates one by one.

    There should be an Azure CLI command to export a Key Vault in its entirety, and the same with import, something like:

    az keyvault backup --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>

    az keyvault restore --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>

  4. Show expiry time of file share backups in portal and PowerShell

    When creating a file share backup in the portal (see attached screenshot) or via PowerShell (with the cmdlet Backup-AzRecoveryServicesBackupItem and the parameter -ExpiryDateTimeUTC) a retention date is set. I would like to be able to view this date in the portal and with the PowerShell cmdlet Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint.

  5. Add restore point overview to file share backups in RSV

    When looking at a VM backup in a Recovery Services Vault there is an overview of the available restore points (see attached screenshot). I would like to have the same overview when looking at a file share backup in the RSV.

  11. Missing volume prevents schedule changes to be made

    After a disk/volume dies backups fail. I want to be able to change the schedule without having to recreate the missing volume and all of the paths. I moved the files to another drive but cannot modify the schedule.

  12. Recovery Vault - per VM storage consumption stats

    Currently i have a mix of VMs from different business units in a single Vault, due to a bad decision made by a predecessor. Because of our retention policies i cant delete the data. Therefore a method to retrieve the usage per VM is needed to cross charge the usage.

  16. RBAC roles for backup and restore

    Currently it is not possible to fine-grain a role with permissions to allow specific users to perform a backup/restore separately from creating virtual machines.

    We have several teams that should be able to perform their own backup/restore, but they are unable to do so because that implies a security risk where they could also deploy virtual machines manually.

    There are situations like ours where people are only allowed to deploy virtual machines which adhere to security measures taken on an OS level, and thus should not be able to deploy virtual machines without them.
    However, being able to perform a…

  18. Best Novell Groupwise to Outlook converter tool

    Well, If one can want to convert their Groupwise mailboxes into Outlook PST format then, there are two possible solutions one manual method and the second one is a third-party tool which is an automated process. If you plan to export their mailboxes into Outlook PST format and you know nothing about technical terms then, I suggest trying a third-party tool which provides an efficient environment to convert Groupwise to Outlook PST format regardless of any manual method which requires lots of time technical expertise. Here I recommend a third-party tool named as Shoviv Groupwise to Outlook migration tool that…

  19. azure vm backup policy - implement daylight saving time

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, summer time is not supported. Please refer below.

    I want this feature because creating a backup strategy for a complete Azure infrastructure can be a big problem. It already makes sure that the backup runs at 2:00 o'clock or at 3:00 o'clock.

    Many Greetings
    Fabrice

    No. The date and time on your local computer is local with current daylight savings applied. The time set for scheduled backups might differ from the local time due to DST.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  20. 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…
