Previous Post in Series: Part 4: ASR Enable Replication for VMware VMs
Welcome back folks, in this part of the guide we’ll be running through a DR-Drill for one of the VMs we protected in the last section. Feel free to extend this drill to include multiple VMs if you’re feeling fruity 🙂
A couple of things to note before continuing:
- Did you make sure to enable RDP on the public profile?
- Or are you connecting to the VMs over a VPN connection?
- Did you apply all pending Windows Updates?
- If not, these will be applied as soon as the VM comes up in Azure, locking you out from RDP for a bit
So assuming we’re all good, let’s continue.

Welcome back folks. In this section of the guide we’ll be setting up the replication of our VMware VMs to a recovery vault in our Azure subscription. Once we’ve successfully replicated one or more of our VMs, we also run a DR-Drill to confirm that’s all working as intended (next section of the guide). Let’s get on with it:

Previous Post in Series: Part 2: ASR VMware – Azure Environment Prep
Welcome back folks. In this section we’ll be running through a step-by-step process for deploying an ASR Configuration Server.

If you’ve been following the whole series thus far, great, but if not I’d suggest you have a look back at the Azure Site Recovery page before continuing. With no further ado let’s crack on.
