Fixes and improvements in this update


After you apply this update, the following issues are fixed, and the following improvements are included.

Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Unified Setup and Configuration Server Template

Improvements

  • This new version uses the VMware Management SDK to communicate with the vCenter server. The dependency on PowerCLI is removed.

Microsoft Azure Site Recovery (service-side fixes) 

Improvements

  • Azure to Azure: Ability added to set up disaster recovery for Azure VMs on managed disks between two Azure regions. (Deployment to national clouds will follow.)
  • Feedback on disable protection: You can now provide feedback on the reason for disabling protection of your virtual machines. This feedback questionnaire would be presented at the time of disabling protection for some of your virtual machines, depending on when protection was removed.
  • Hyper-V Site to Azure: Replication policies that currently use a 15-minute copy frequency are updated to use a 5-minute copy frequency. This update will improve replication performance and result in better recovery point objectives for replicating Hyper-V virtual machines. The 15-minute copy frequency option will be discontinued in a later release.

Issues fixed

  • The following issues with updating the authentication service are fixed:
    • Hyper-V with VMM to Azure: In certain vaults where VMs are spread across multiple clouds, update authentication was failing with an internal error. This is fixed on the service side.
    • VMware to Azure: If a passphrase that was generated during configuration server registration was updated, authentication update was failing with the error “Security authentication update failed due to issues in registry key updates.” This issue is fixed on the service side.
