Disaster Recovery process for Azure Storage Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Need help on the process of Disaster Recovery of Storage Account. Need deep understanding of below scenarios:

    1) How to simulate the failover scenarios for storage account. What I mean to say is I want to test the failover scenarios, need clarification on the ways I can do it.

    2) How to get the IP of secondary storage account so I can restrict that IP from event hub as well.

  • Just for clarification have you refereed to this article

    Are you trying to executing the fail-over themselves as long as their account is in US West 2 or US West Central(Using Portal, PowerShell or CLI)

    1.  It’s not possible simulate failure.  They have enabled GRS or RAGRS options -> they can get data when disaster happens. 

    2. Once the failover is complete, they can perform nslookup and they will get the new IP address of the account

    Tutorial: Simulate a failure in accessing read-access redundant storage: It should help them identify the IP address of the secondary endpoint

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
