Recovery Target Options for Azure Stack Hub


When you configure a recovery target for Azure Stack Hub, provide Azure-specific values for the destination site.

General Options

  • Select vendor: Select Microsoft Azure Stack Hub.

  • Application type: Select the type of operations that use this recovery target.

    • Regular: To use this recovery target for live mount operations or virtual lab operations, select this option.

    • Replication: To use this recovery target as a destination site for replication jobs, select this option.

  • Recovery target name: Enter a descriptive name for the destination (for example, DR site 1).

  • Azure hypervisor: Select the destination hypervisor.

  • Access node (Optional): By default, the preferred VSA proxy for the hypervisor is used for the restore. You can select a different proxy from this list.

  • Users and user groups: Select items from the list and click OK to associate users or user groups with the recovery target.

  • VM display name: Select Prefix or Suffix, and then enter a string to be appended to the original display name to create new destination VM names.

  • Resource group: To specify the resource group for the destination VM, select the group from the list.

  • Storage account: Select the storage account for the destination virtual machine and disks.

Additional Options

  • VM size: Select a size specification for the destination virtual machine.

  • Virtual network: Select a network connection for the restored VM, or leave the default value of Auto select.

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

    Only 1 NIC can replicate to an Azure Stack Hub destination, so even if the source VM has multiple NICs, only 1 NIC is available in the replicated VM.

  • Security group: Specify a network security group for the restored VM or leave the default value of Auto select.

  • Create public IP: To configure a public IP address for destination VMs, select this check box.

  • Restore as a managed VM: To create the destination VM as a managed VM in Azure, leave the check box selected.

    When you select this option, the restore operation creates virtual machine disks in the specified storage account, and then converts them to managed disks and attaches the disks to the restored virtual machine.
