East US VM to West US Replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Thank you in advance for any and all advice.  We just started with azure VM's.  We have one VM in the East US, and want to Replicate it for fail over to West US. 

    we went here for step by step instructions: https://tecoholic.com/how-to-replicate-azure-vm-to-another-region-4268/

    But it did not "Jive" with what we were seeing on our screens.our current production VM is in "East US", we created a storage account in "West US" Region. 

    we go into "Recovery Service vault"

    + Replicate

    Source = Azure

    Source Location= East Us (here we get our errors... You cannot protect VM's from the same region as of the vault)

    any advise or documents we can read, would be helpful

    thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    Recovery service vault cannot be located in the same region as your source VM, just create a new recovery service vault in different region than your source VM.

  • Your recovery vault should be created in target region not on source region. This is because if your source region goes down, you can't the same recovery vault.
