Azure Recovery Vault Supported Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have most of your VMS in Basic storage, due to our tight budget.

    We need to start backing up those VMs as they are now serving as production.

    I have configured Azure Recovery vault. The backup job keeps failing with following errors:

    "Storage account configuration is not supported. Please select a different storage."

    After doing same research I found the following:

    Azure Recovery Service requirement:

    Recovery Services vaults protect Resource Manager-based VMs including Premium Disks, Managed Disks, and Encrypted VMs. Upgrading a Backup vault to a Recovery Services vault gives you the opportunity to upgrade your Service Manager-based VMs to Resource Manager-based VMs.

    What is the roadmap to backup VM which are housed in basic storage?

    Thank you so much.

  • I am not using ACL. I email MS support and found out the backup failing due to us turning on firewall(inpreview) in our storage. 

    After removing firewall option now I can backup just fine.

  • We do support standard storage with Recovery Services Vault. 

    Could you share the subscription ID, region and last failure time referencing this forum thread link to azurebackupforumhelp at service dot Microsoft dot com?

  • Are you using ACLed Storage Account?

    Azure Backup doesn’t support ACLed Storage Account currently.
