Improvements that are included in this update
After you apply this update, the following features are available:
The integration of Recovery Plans and Azure Automation offers robust and simplified one-click orchestration of your disaster recovery plans. Azure Automation runbooks now can be directly started from within ASR Recovery Plans.
The Track Initial Replication Progress feature prevents virtual machine data from being replicated to a customer-owned and managed geo-redundant Azure Storage account. This new feature is also available when you configure disaster recovery plansbetween on-premises private clouds that are located across enterprise sites.
The Simplified Setup and Registration feature streamlines the disaster recovery setup by making it simpler to generate certificates and integrity keys. These elements are needed to register your on-premises Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager server with your Site Recovery vault.
The Enhanced enable protection experience feature for on-premises-to-Azure protection notifies you of Azure compatibility issues for the virtual machines. Therefore, it can reduce prerequisite failures.
