Azure Virtual Machines Backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a host server called MyHostServer that has hyper V.

    This server is been backed up using veeam.


    I have 3 Virtual machines ruuning on this host

    1: VM1 2: VM2 3:VM3

    Currently I have certain files from each virtual machine been backed up to my backupVaulat in azure.

    I plan to back up MyHostServer to my backup Vault that will incude all the hard disks for each Virtaul machine is this a good idea?

    Should I just backup the entire VM's to azure?

    What advice can you give.


    Thanks

    Mark

  • Are you referring to your on-premise host with Hyper-V on it or are these VMs already on Azure? 

    Also, are you using Veeam with Azure Backup Vault directly or are using an Azure backup server on your VMs?

    My 3 VM's have azure backup agent installed and I can backup to my vault, I might look into Veeam with Azure Backup Vault directly

    Hi,

    I have a server on-premise that hosts 3 hyper V virtual machines.

    Currently I am using azure backup to restore certain drives and not the entire VM to my backup vault.

    i.e Server1 is the host hyper V that have the following.

    1: VM1 2: VM2 3:VM3

    But I do have Veeam also backing up the 3 VM's.

    Is there a way to import my Veeam VM backups to azure  account?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Q. would like to be able to restore from the NAS box its Linux Ubuntu system to a VM I have created on my azure account is this possible.

    Ans : If your NAS box has remote SMB V3 capability, you can deploy DPM/MABS as a VM (Prerequisites to install MABS) and have its VHDs stored on NAS box.

    If your NAS box don’t have remote SMB V3 capability, we have a feedback item for this, so if you are interested please vote for it at - https://feedback.azure.com/forums/258995-azure-backup-and-scdpm/suggestions/9396531-dpm-protecting-nas-cifs-shares

    When you say, “Currently on each VM I am using the Microsoft Azure Backup agent I am backing up files and folders and drives but not entire VM's” have installed Backup agent on Azure VMs or on-premises VMs?

    If you want to take a backup of entire Azure VM refer the below link:

    Backing up Azure virtual machines

    If you want to take a backup of entire on-premises VM refer the below link:
