I agree with this request. Without having an export service the risk is too high using this backup service. a full restore over the WAN is not possible and export service via disk is needed before this backup service can be used.
Currently there is support available for backing up System State using just the MARS Agent to recover to the same/similar hardware in case of server or software malfunction.
We wanted to understand the scenarios where a full server recovery cannot be achieved using Azure Site Recovery. Please share your feedback so we can review and plan this accordingly.
