Can not Set Backup Policy Azure Server backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a Windows server with Azure backup. It is configured to back up once a week.

    When I log into Azure, and goto: Home > "ResourceName" > Backup Infrastructure > Protected Servers (Azure Backup Agent) > "Server Name" > Backup policy,

    It shows Backup Frequency as follows:

    BACKUP FREQUENCY

    Weekly on Sunday at 11:30 PM

    RETENTION RANGE

    Retention of weekly backup point

    Retain backup taken every week on Sunday at 11:30 PM for 104 Week(s)

    Retention of monthly backup point

    Retain backup taken every month on Last Sunday at 11:30 PM for 60 Month(s)

    Retention of yearly backup point

    Retain backup taken every year in March on Last Sunday at 11:30 PM for 10 Year(s)

    We do not need to retain 100's of copies of our data as we are trying to cut down on our Azure backup costs. I want to change this, but there is no option of changing it.

    If I goto Home > "Resource" - Backup policies and try to add a policy, there is no  policy type for this resource type. Only Azure Virtual machine, Azure File Share, and SQL Server in Azure VM.

    So how can I modify the backup retention policy?

    Thanks in advance!
