  2. 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

  3. 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…

    Private = my organization's Wi-Fi, network.
    Public = mobile like at airport's Wi-Fi, like at Coffee shop through my smartphone.

  9. "Agent Version" Column at "Registered items" list in Azure portal web sites.

    I want to manage Azure Backup Agent Version of All Registered items in azure portal web sites.
    If the "Registered items" list have the "Agent Version" column, I can verify all agent version of our servers, and can update older agents.

    Scenario : Azure Backup start new price from 4/1/2015.
    and, the Azure Backup Agent version for new price need "2.0.8704.0".
    I need to find older Azure Backup Agent, and update it.

  10. Option for IaaS restore of VM to not automatically start

    Currently, a restore VM will start automatically, which will cause the restored data to change since applications / jobs will run. And it can cause conflicts if that system tries to interact with other systems.

  11. Bug: Typo on Backup Vault configuration page

    There is a typo on the Backup Vault -> Configure page for the storage replication's tool-tip, where it says: "The Geo-Redundant option maintains 3 copies of your data locally and 3 copties in a secondary storage region." As you can see the copies is misspelled the second time as "copties".

  13. Transition licensing for Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS)

    It would be great, if existing System Center customers with correct licensing could bring their own license (System Center License) and don't have to pay the same price. This will enable some System Center DPM to transition directly to Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS)

  14. Documents of Azure Backup Server for customers who don't know SCDPM.

    I want to share the Azure Backup Server with IT pro/customers/partners who don't know SCDPM.
    Currently the Azure Backup Server's documents need to know SCDPM.
    But the Azure Backup Server don't need to know SCDPM information.
    the Azure Backup Server is easy for more SMB market IT Pro.
