Azure Site Recovery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We would like to know if we can for our RDgateway/Rdweb and all of its RDS VM's use disaster recovery to Azure for on-premis Hyper-v hosts.

    We have an application that uses SQL server and we have for each of our customers setup an VM to access the application or we publish the app to our server 2016 Rdweb and our customers accessing it from a web browser.

    We run a test with only a single VM that was not member of our domain to Azure and it works correctly.

    for RDgate to works we need also DC, should we also put óne of our DC's also in our Recovery site or it would beter to use Azure domain services? currently we are using office 365 and our on-perm AD is synced with O365.

  • According to this article, RDS is supported by ASR.

    As for the AD question, it would depend on what your future/long-term goals in Azure will be. I think there are some slight limitations in using AADDS from a traditional ADDS perspective.

    Generally, since you will be failing over VMs into Azure, I suggest setting up a pair (for high availability) of Azure VMs as Domain Controllers. What most customers do, is setup the VMs as DCs, and connect them to the existing domain, so that Users, Security Groups, etc. sync automatically. Then, you can point to those in-cloud DCs for the DNS of the Azure Virtual Networks (VNets).
