Recovery Service Vault, Backup storage Replication in ARM

Currently there is no way to sepcify which storage replication is wanted when you create a Recovery Services Vault via ARM templates.

The default when spinning up a vault is GRS, and the only way to change it is to log into the portal and choose LRS before any backups have been applied.

The fact that the type of storage replication cannot be changed after a backup has been set does not help the situation.

This makes automating infrastrucutre builds painful as I have to login and change the setting in the portal before i am able to continue adding machines to the vault.

The documentation for the Vault is here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/templates/microsoft.recoveryservices/vaults

If this is already available then please update the docs and the Quick start templates to include it!

If its not available then please add it to ARM!

        Hi Mark,

        Is it possible that you can move this from General to Azure Backup or Recovery Services. I hope this may get a bit more traction there.
