ASR setup question RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI all, looking for some help to a question I have. 

    I have used ASR for some time now with On-Prem (VMWare) to Azure. I am now setting up a lab for Azure to Azure. If I deploy the Vault in the 2nd region I can then go ahead and choose VM to replicate from primary region and all works just swell. But, what if I want to isolate the Vault because I don't want servers popping up with the same names and IPs. If I isolate the Vault VNet then my replication fails, I guess cos it cannot see the vault because the VNet is isolated. But if I setup global vnet peering, this will expose the vaults VNet and cause issues if VMs are online at the same time.

    I'm missing something here - any help on this one. 

    PS. I have read a ton on this but can't seem to find a logical answer. If someone can explain that would be very helpful.

  • Can you explain what you mean by isolate technically?

  • Hi, so if I intend to test failover I would need to ensure the VNet with the replicated VMs is isolated from production?

  • Yes, especially if they are domain joined VMs. I normally create a specific test vnet for test failovers. I either give the VMs temporary public IPs secured by NSG for a once off test, or if testing multiple VMs over a period of time, add a vnet gateway and use P2S VPN to connect to into vnet then RDP to private IP of VM with a local admin account and test anything required.

  • Either you can add Public to one of the VM and connect to rest of the VMs using the private IP instead of giving public IP's to all VMs.
