  1. better management of backups in the dashboard

    When looking through the dashboard of protected items I should be able to right click on the item and see the history of jobs. Currently I need look at multiple areas.

    I would also be able to configure thresholds to indicate if it is an issue or it is green. I'm struggling to understand the health of my backups rather than if a current job has failed.

  4. I want SQL backup compression added to MABS

    I want SQL backup compression added to MABS so that a restore of a database is quicker.

    Details:
    Built into the SQL application for years has been the ability to backup with compression (attached). MABS does not have this. Restoring the files to an alternate location takes 2x to 5x longer when uncompressed. We are currently not using MABS against these database files for this reason.

    More details:
    When creating a protection group in MABS, under "Select data protection method", we select both "I want short-term prtection using: Disk" and "I want online protection". There is no option to compress…

  5. Add possibility to disable quiescing for VMWare VM

    By default, MABS tries to create a quiesced snapshot before backup a VMware VM. If quescing the VM fails (for whatever reasion), the backup fails. I want the possibilty to disable the creation of a quiesced snapshot and just create a crash-consistent backup instead of an application-aware backup.

  7. Backing up Multiple Azure Subscription Resources with Single ABS

    We need to backup workloads running on different Azure subscriptions. As of now ABS supports only one valut registration. What is the workaround to overcome the issue where we need to backup our workloads from different Azure subscriptions.

  9. Enable the migration of Inactive Replicas to different modern backup storage volumes.

    Currently to move an inactive replica to a different MBS volume, the replica has to be added back into a protection group. This causes a consistency check, which is undesirable.

  15. Restore VMware VMs, backuped with Azure Backup Server, in Azure

    Currently it's possible to backup VMware VMs to Azure for off-site or long term copy. It would be great if these backups could be restored in Azure as IaaS virtual machines (if the on-premises data center crashes for example).

  16. Add in alias for protected servers

    I use a Recovery Services vault to backup files using the Azure Backup tool. I am currently backing up 4 different servers.

    These servers have a randomly generated name, e.g. SVR-748398, SVR-347583, SVR-192938, so in the portal when I look under Backup Items > Azure Backup Agent these names are listed here under the Protected Servers.

    The problem is that these names are not clear which is which. So if there is an alert that a backup has failed, it is difficult to know which server failed.

    The could be solved by allowing the option to set an alias for…

  17. Exclude temp disk in Azure Backup Server

    If running the Azure Backup Server to protect IaaS VMs, there should be an option to globally exclude the temp drives on those VMs. Otherwise the process of excluding that disk is a very manual task for every protected server.

  20. MABS error events and its troubleshooting steps...

    Hi Support Team,

    As I am working MABS , we are getting several error events on the MABS.

    Searched several articles, but didn't get any clue on troubleshoot these issues. And also these events not listed in MABS error events list.

    It would be much appreciate to provide quick response and remedy for the attached error events for MABS.

    Thanks,
    Sudha
