ASR Cleanup Test Failover is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello ASR Team,

    I am having an issue of Cleanup test failover.

    I replicated one VM from Hyper-V on-premises to ASR and initiated Test Failover successfully.

    Now I need to clean test failover, but the option is greyed out. I cannot Clean Up Test Failover.

    I have also noticed the following Error ID in Site Recovery Jobs:

    ERROR ID: 26012

    ERROR MESSAGE: The virtual machine isn't ready for test failover.

    POSSIBLE CAUSES: Either the virtual machine is in a state which doesn't support test failover, or check the Provider errors for more information.

    RECOMMENDATION: Resolve the issue and retry the operation.

    FIRST SEEN AT 6/14/2018, 4:12:09 PM

    Your help is highly appreciated.

    Thank You!

  • You have mentioned that ‘Test Failover successfully”, however, from the error message “The virtual machine isn't ready for test failover.” It appears that the Test failover wasn’t successful. Do check the status of the VM (review the job details) and take necessary action.  Just to confirm, are you referring to this document Test failover to Azure in Site Recovery for the steps?


    Just highlighting the points from the above documentation and things to try:


    1. Track failover progress on the Jobs tab. You should be able to see the test replica machine in the Azure portal. -> Review the status “Time.
    2. To initiate an RDP connection to the Azure VM, you need to add a public IP address on the network interface of the failed over VM. –> Were you able to RDP to the VM fine?
    3. When everything is working as expected, click Cleanup test failover. This deletes the VMs that were created during test failover. -> Just to isolate any specific issues, you could refresh/re-login to the Portal and then check to see if that makes any difference.

  • Thank you Ajay.

    Please note that the VM was created successfully when I initiated Test Failover. The Test VM is there and I can access, but I need to clean up the Test Failover.

    Yes, I am referring to this doc @

    I am stuck now. I can see the Test VM under virtual machines, but I need to clean it.

  • Just to confirm, did you try refresh/re-login to the Azure Portal to see if that makes any difference? Do share a screenshot of the issue after concealing any private details.

    Also, ensure that you have the latest update is installed: Update Rollup 25 for Azure Site Recovery.

    Yes, I refreshed/re-login to Azure Portal and still the same issue.

    I was running ASR Version 5.1.3250.0 I updated to the latest UR25 (5.1.3300.0) for Azure Site Recovery and still the same issue as well.

    Please find the screenshot below as request.


    Please advise?
