Azure Backup Server - unable to take System State/BMR backups. Errors - Replica is inconsistent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've configured Azure Backup Server on an Azure IaaS VM. When I try to backup System State or BMR the backup fails with following error - 

    Critical - Replica is inconsistent

    Computer\System Protection\Bare Metal Recovery on <MyServerName> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure Backup\DPM\DPM\Volumes\Replica\Non VSS Datasource Writer\vol_18af2c4d-xxxxxxx-4e5c-acb6-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\2a9fde03-3372-41e0-a777-xxxxxxxxx\Full\C-Vol\

    Azure documentation says - "You can also protect Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) workloads such as VMs in Azure.

    link - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-microsoft-azure-backup

    Looking at the error - Do they mean I have to configure a server to have more control on file level backups only and can't take Snapshots of BMR for Azure IaaS VMs.

    Appreciate your thoughts and help here.
