Live Sync Options for Subclient (Azure)

The Live Sync configuration wizard includes configuration values on multiple pages.

Destination

  • Virtualization Client: Select the Azure client for the destination site.
    • Subscription Details: Displays the ID of the Azure subscription.
  • Proxy Client: Select the proxy to use for the Live Sync operation.

Virtual Machines

  • Add VMs: Click to browse for backed up virtual machines that can be replicated.
  • Remove VMs: Click to remove selected VMs from the replication schedule.
  • VM and Disk: This column displays the list of all the virtual machines and disks selected for replication (the source). Expand each virtual machine to view the disks in that virtual machine.
  • Change VM display name to (Destination VM): This column displays the existing name of each destination virtual machine. To change the name of any virtual machine, click in the corresponding row and enter the new name. If the VM display name of the source VM is retained for the replicated VM, select a different destination from the Client list.

    If the destination VM name matches the name of an existing virtual machine in the target location, the destination VM is not replaced unless a) it was created in a previous Live Sync operation or b) you use the Unconditionally overwrite VM with the same name option.

  • Resource Group: Select the resource group in which the converted virtual machine should be created.
  • Storage Account: Select the storage account to be used for all selected virtual machines or disk.

    You can specify any storage account in the same region as the selected resource group.

  • Settings: Click Configure to display the Azure Virtual Machine Configuration dialog box.
    • Destination VM: Displays the name of the destination VM.
    • Resource Group: Select the resource group in which the converted virtual machine should be created.
    • Storage Account: Select the storage account to be used for all selected virtual machines or disks.

      You can specify any storage account in the same region as the selected resource group or cloud service.

    • VM size: Select a VM size from the list. The VM sizes in the list are those that are available for the resource group or cloud service you selected.
    • Operating System: Select the operating system for the destination VM.

      If necessary, you can select the Auto Select option to automatically detect the operating system of the source VM.

      The operating system for the destination VM must be an operating system that is supported for Microsoft Azure.

    • Azure Virtual Network Options:
      • Create Public IP: Select to create a public IP.

        If a public IP address is not required on destination VMs, clear this selection. By default, a public IP address is assigned to Azure virtual machines during replication.

      • Network Interface: Select one of the available network interfaces for the resource group from the list.

        You can specify any subnet in the same region as the selected resource group.

        If you do not select a VNet, then the first VNet in the list and the first (default) subnet that it expands to are attached to the replicated VM.

        Note: Static IP addresses from a source VM are not replicated to the destination VM.

      • Network Security Group: Select a network security group for the destination VMs.

Restore Options

  • Unconditionally overwrite VM with the same name: Replace an existing virtual machine with the same name in the target location. If the destination VM is currently powered on, the Live Sync fails, regardless of the setting for this option.
  • Distribute VM workload: To submit separate jobs for a Live Sync schedule, select this option and select the number of VMs per job. When this option is used, jobs are submitted sequentially, with each job beginning after the previous job has completed.

Job Options

Schedule: To configure a schedule, select this option and click Configure.
