Procedures

  1. For each region, create a dedicated client computer group.
  2. Add the availability group clients to the groups in their region.
  3. To each dedicated client computer group, assign a storage policy that is for the same region.
  4. To the client computer group, add the EnableRegionBasedBackups additional setting as shown in the following table.
