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

  • Azure hypervisor: Select the destination hypervisor.

  • 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.

  • Disk Type: For managed disks only, select the disk type for the Azure destination VM: Auto select (same as the source VM), Standard HDD, Standard SSD, Premium SSD.

    Consider the following:

    • When the Disk Type for the recovery target is set to Auto select, the destination VM disk type is as follows:

      • For Azure to Azure replication, the destination VM disk type is the same as the source VM.

      • For VMware to Azure replication, the destination VM disk type is standard HDD.

    • When the Disk Type for the recovery target is set to Premium SSD, but in the Replication Group Override window, the Disk Type is set to Original, the destination VM disk type is as follows:

      • For Azure to Azure replication, the destination VM disk type is the same as the source VM.

    • When the Disk Type for the recovery target is set to Auto select, and in the Replication Group Override window, the Disk Type is set to Original, the destination VM disk type is as follows:

      • For Azure to Azure replication, when in the Replication Group Override window, the VM size selected does not support premium SSD (for example, D2v3), the destination VM disk type is standard HDD.

      • For Azure to Azure replication, when in the Replication Group Override window, the VM size selected supports premium SSD (for example, B2ms), the destination VM disk type is the same as the source VM.

  • 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.

  • 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.
