  1. Azure Backup + on prem Network Security Group (NSG)

    One issue I ran into when trying to setup our backups using Recover Services Vault was connection back to the service. If we have outbound security rules for our Network Security Group, we would have to white list all of the Azure IP addresses. This was a crazy long list that we would then have to maintain. The second option was to setup a proxy, which would cost money because that would be a second machine that would have to be running. I thought it might be nice if Azure created a tag for Azure services like the ones for…

  2. Segregation of Duties / Restrict ability to DELETE Backup Vault

    In our main Azure instance we are backing up our on Prem VMs and our Cloud VMs. The concern is the Domain Admins have the ability to delete ALL our VMs both on Prem and in the Cloud and then proceed to delete the Azure Vault. We would like the ability to granularly control permission so that a user does not have the capability to Delete a Backup Vault. This doesn't appear to be a level control we can find within Azure without moving to a new Azure instance which adds other complications

  3. Security roles in Azure Backup

    The ability to restrict vault credentials to certain operations would be extremely useful from a security standpoint. Right now, Azure Backup can protect against accidental or non-malicious data loss, but its ability to protect against intended data destruction is limited. If the underlying server Azure Backup is running on is compromised, an attacker can simply delete all of the backups for that system. This makes Azure's utility as a replacement for traditional physical off-site backups (e.g. tape drives) much less useful.

    Being able to assign "roles" to vault credentials would be one way to solve this. For example, a role…

  4. Post somewhere the actual IP range used by Azure Backup so we won't have to whitelist half the world

    It's a real pain to whitelist 400+ IP ranges, that change in time...
    This needs to change, because nobody would want to whitelist half the world if the machine is not a web server.

  6. Azure RBAC Role Request - Recovery Services Vault Contributor

    We need a role (more granular than Contributor of a Subscription) that will give us the ability to create Recovery Services Vaults. At a minimum, we need to be able to create a custom role with this capability.

    A previous request was created for this purpose, but was mistakenly closed as "Completed" even though this work was not actually completed.

  10. Sharepoint repair

    There are many problems come with SharePoint Server when it is down. However, SharePoint stores all its contents in a separate SQL Server machine. So, each data is not lost. The main problem is recovery. The recovery is based on two servers. The first one is running all your SharePoint services and the second one is Dedicated SQL server. Most users run Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, but most people also apply Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). Most of the configurations in SQL Server databases are based on recovery of SharePoint databases. So you need to recover all the necessary…
