Sharon continues the preparation of the on-premises environment including prepare the replication settings and selecting the virtual machines that are to be protected.
- [Instructor] And now we're on our last step of configuring Azure site recovery. All we need to do here is select step one, Replicate Application, that's located underneath For On Premise Machines in Azure VMs. I'm going to go ahead and select that, and you'll notice that we had three major steps, and we'll go ahead and run through these. Step one is configuring the source. Our source is On Premise, and our source location is HyperVvm, and this is the HyperV site I created.
There is another site here that I'd previously been using, so make sure that you select the right one. Once you've selected everything, go ahead and click OK. Now we can go ahead and configure our target. Our first option is our target, we can't change that. Our description is, in my case, my pay as I go service. Yours can be different. Your failover resource group, and this is the resource we created in the beginning of the chapter. Next, your deployment model, and again, you should be using Resource Manager here.
The storage account. This was the storage account we created, again, at the beginning of the chapter. And then we have two options when we talk about the network. We can configure now for the selected machines, or you can configure this later. I'm going to go ahead and configure it now, and I can simply just select our network. You'll notice that there are several networks to choose from. I'm going to use the network that we created. And finally, the subnet that you want to use for your replicated VMs. Go ahead and click OK. Now we can go ahead and select the VMs that we want to replicate.
I'm going to go ahead and take both of them, and then select OK. Step four requires us to configure the properties. I'm going to go ahead and select the default OS to Windows. Both of these machines happen to be Windows. If you have a long list, by setting the default, it'll make life a little bit easier for you. But you could actually go ahead and change these if you need to to Linux. As they're both Windows machines, I'm going to go ahead and leave them as-is. You would go ahead and select the OS disk.
And then the disk to replicate. Now, both these virtual machines do not have any additional disks, they only have the one disk each. If I did have additional disks, they'd be listed here. I'm going to leave all the defaults and click OK. And our last step, step five, configure the replication settings. We actually can't change anything here, because it's based on that replication policy that we created earlier. You can review your settings here, click OK, and finally the last step, select enable replication.
Now, this will take some time, depending on your connection and the size of your VMs and the number of disks. Other than that, our VMs are now protected and being replicated to Azure.
