How to enable azure backup for Virtual Machine

Here I’m going to test the Microsoft Azure Backup for VM. Basically its a next next process and easy to configure.

If you want to use Azure backup for on-premise infrastructure below are the list of servers which is support by Azure backup,



Once you created a VM in Azure You can see the Backup configuration tab. If you created a backup job, then clicking on that will show you the status of the backup and the policy which used to setup the backup job.


If this is the first time you are creating a backup, then you can create a new vault and create a backup policy.

But If you have your own Vault created then you can assign this backup in to same vault which you have created created at an earlier date.


Here you can create the backup frequency and the retention period. assign them and click ok and then click Enable Backup to start the Job,


Then the backup status will say that Initial backup pending till the fist backup finish the job.

Hope this help you to get an idea about the Azure VM backup.
