In my windows vm event log, I see the following entry every night around 7:30pm.
A service was installed in the system.
Service Name: Microsoft Monitoring Agent Azure VM Extension Heartbeat Service
Service File Name: "C:\Packages\Plugins\Microsoft.EnterpriseCloud.Monitoring.MicrosoftMonitoringAgent\1.0.11081.2\MMAExtensionHeartbeatService.exe"
Service Type: user mode service
Service Start Type: demand start
Service Account: LocalSystem
I checked the activity log and I see a write entry for Backup Management Service around the same time? Are these two related? Whenever the backup is initiated, does it install the monitoring agent heartbeat service?
