How To Create Recovery Services Vault in Azure with PowerShell #AzureBackup

2 Min. Read


Yesterday I was speaking at the CDC Germany 2018, a big Cloud Conference community event focusing on the Microsoft Cloud OS Platform, held in Hanau, Germany. With national and international speakers and over 400 attendees, it was a great conference!

I presented a session about protecting on-premises workloads to Azure, and how you can leverage Azure Backup to achieve GDPR compliance. In this demo-heavy session, I presented about Microsoft Azure Backup Server, System Center Data Protection Manager, and Azure Backup (awesome technologies).

I had a full house during the session, great turn up, good questions as well as great, more in-depth, discussions afterward. I had a fun time presenting there. Many thanks to Rachfahl IT-Solutions GmbH & Co. KG and my fellow MVP Carsten Rachfahl for putting this event together.

Create Recovery Services vault

During my session, I showed the attendees how to create a Recovery Services Vault in Azure with PowerShell.

If you are interested to leverage it in your environment, here is a copy of that code. This assumes that you have already installed the Az PowerShell module on your machine before you run the script.

# Import-Module Azure Resource Manager Module
Import-Module AzureRM.Resources

# Log into Azure tenant and select the desired Subscription 
$SubscriptionID = Get-AzureRmSubscription | Out-GridView -Title "Select one Azure Subscription" -PassThru
Set-AzureRmContext -SubscriptionId $SubscriptionID.Id
# Register the required providers (not required if you've used Azure Backup under this subscription before)
Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace "Microsoft.RecoveryServices"
Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace "Microsoft.Backup"
# Get an existing resource group for our Recovery Vault (Updated the name as required)
$ResourceGroup = Get-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name "CDC-RG01"
# Create Recovery Services Vault (Change name as required)
$RSVault = New-AzureRmRecoveryServicesVault -Name "CDC-Germany-2018-RSV02" `
-ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroup.ResourceGroupName -Location $ResourceGroup.Location
# Set Vault Storage Redundancy To Locally Redundant
Set-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupProperties -Vault $RSVault -BackupStorageRedundancy LocallyRedundant

At the end of my session, Dominik Kowolik was selected as the winner, congratulations on the 100 Euro Amazon Voucher. Thanks to Altaro Software!

To all attendees… I hope you enjoyed the conference as much as I do.

Until next time!
