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.
Region: Select the geographic region for the vault. For you to create a vault to help protect any data source, the vault must be in the same region as the data source.
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
