Feature Request: Email Notification in MARS Agent
We want to have "Email Notification" option in MARS Agent. Also, please help to improve sync consistency with System State backup to Azure Portal as it shows wrong information sometime
They may have added this in the most recent version:
BTW - did get that $upport refund back!
Well, the Power Bi free month ran out and we didn't realize that MARS was failing (because there are no reports!) Signed up for $upport and fixed the issue but if we didn't MANUALLY check, we would have never found out since MARS didn't send a failure notice (because it just stopped running), and there are no success notices. MS really needs to fix that. We will be requesting a refund once we are fully back to normal.
Been using Power Bi for a week now and it gives daily reports - nice. However it will cost $10/month to get the report to one person. PLUS the storage for the report data will cost a few cents to add insult to injury.
So if you want a report, you can get it if you just throw enough money at it.
I think it can be done now with a Power Bi Pro account.
The instructions are in your Recovery Services Vault:
- select backup reports
- follow directions to create a storage account ($) and link diagnostic data.
- Wait 24 hours
- then sign in to Power Bi (same account as your Azure) and Get Data, Services, Azure Backup (use the key authentication from your storage account under Access Keys
- Wait 10 minutes
- Upgrade to Power Bi Pro ($$)
- Share reports ??? - I didn't get this far since this is starting to cost real money and I don't have approval yet.
