Considerations for Locked Azure Resources

Locked Azure resources can prevent Commvault from creating and restoring snapshots in the locked resource.

To use a VM in a locked resource group, select a different, unlocked resource group for the VM so that Commvault can create and remove snapshots in it. For more information about selecting an unlocked resource group for a VM, see Editing VM Group Settings for Azure.

Before you select a custom resource group for disk snapshots, verify that the following are not locked:

  • The storage account for staging disk blobs

  • The storage account for unmanaged VM backup disks

  • Resource groups that you use to restore and replicate VMs

  • Resource groups that you use to fail over replicated VMs

  • Source and destination resource groups when you perform a failback of a failed over VM
