So we have our fs in WE from the previous tutorial:
Now let’s create a backup for it.
Go to Portal-> Create Recovery Services vault
Location is extremely important, vault has to be in same region as resource, but not the same rgIf resources in many regions, create vault in all.
For this we created a rg testit4 in WE, same as the fs, we will name the valut testit4backupvault.
NOTE THE DEFAULT SETTINGS:
GRS (this allows you to restore in a secondary region), default security for soft delete enabled, check if this is what you need or alter it after creating the vault.
Now backup + and select available options:
Then configure the backup:
- Select storage account (this can take 1-2 min before it show up, then it will be registred after selecting it)
- Select the fs
- Backup policy
- Then enable backup
Since we do not have any backups, lets take on, got to resource:
testit4backupvault->Manage-> Press Backup Infrastructure (it can take some time)
testit4backupvault-> Protected items and view the count:
To delete the backup up must stop the backup, unregister the rg, then delete the vault and rg
*Several options in recovery service vault:
If you select On-Premises you can backup:
- Hyper-V VM
- VMWARE VM
- MS SQL SERVER
- MS SHAREPOINT
- MS EXCHANGE
- SYSTEM STATE
- Bare Metal Recovery
