Description

The Backup-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount cmdlet backs up a specified managed storage account in a key vault by downloading it and storing it in a file. Because the downloaded content is encrypted, it cannot be used outside of Azure Key Vault. You can restore a backed-up storage account to any key vault in the subscription that it was backed up from, as long as the vault is in the same Azure geography. Typical reasons to use this cmdlet are:

  • You want to retain an offline copy of the storage account in case you accidentally delete the original from the vault.

  • You created a managed storage account using Key Vault and now want to clone the object into a different Azure region, so that you can use it from all instances of your distributed application. Use the Backup-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount cmdlet to retrieve the managed storage account in encrypted format and then use the Restore-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount cmdlet and specify a key vault in the second region.

Examples

Example 1: Back up a managed storage account with an automatically generated file name

PS C:\Users\username\> Backup-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount -VaultName 'MyKeyVault' -Name 'MyMSAK'

C:\Users\username\mykeyvault-mymsak-1527029447.01191

This command retrieves the managed storage account named MyMSAK from the key vault named MyKeyVault and saves a backup of that managed storage account to a file that is automatically named for you, and displays the file name.

Example 2: Back up a managed storage account to a specified file name

PS C:\> Backup-AzKeyVaultKey -VaultName 'MyKeyVault' -Name 'MyMSAK' -OutputFile 'C:\Backup.blob'

C:\Backup.blob

This command retrieves the managed storage account named MyMSAK from the key vault named MyKeyVault and saves a backup of that managed storage account to a file named Backup.blob.

Example 3: Back up a previously retrieved managed storage account to a specified file name, overwriting the destination file without prompting.

PS C:\> $msak = Get-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount -VaultName 'MyKeyVault' -Name 'MyMSAK'
PS C:\> Backup-AzKeyVaultManagedStorageAccount -StorageAccount $msak -OutputFile 'C:\Backup.blob' -Force

C:\Backup.blob

This command creates a backup of the managed storage account named $msak.Name in the vault named $msak.VaultName to a file named Backup.blob, silently overwriting the file if it exists already.
