Azure in 5 Minutes: ASR Failover Walk Through

Rob Waggoner


In this video, I walk through the ASR Failover Process and show you the steps Azure Site Recovery takes to ensure that data is not lost in a planned failover, as well as show you how you could select prior recovery points if your current image becomes corrupt due to an un-planned failure.

I mentioned in the video that you need to enable RDP to have access to the VM, if you need access to it from the Internet.  Why don’t we just enable RDP for you?  Because you may not need it and we don’t want to make an assumption like that that could impact the security of your workload. 

Also remember that you need to leverage DiskPart to set the san policy.  Please check my Test Failover blog for those details.
