My Recovery Services Vault is setup on our primary EA subscription, but I would like to replicate some VMs into our MSDN subscription for test/dev purposes. I want to avoid creating a separate configuration server  on premise or even a seperate Recovery services vault. Is this possible?

Hi Eric and welcome!

 

Apologies for the late reply on this. Are you still looking for an answer?

 

I'm not an expert, but this documentation may help: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/site-recovery-faq

Hi Eric,

 

I know you can do this with Hyper-V and VMM if you consider the environment has a multi-tenant one.

Jeff Graves explains how in this blog: http://jeffgraves.me/2016/05/03/multi-tenant-azure-site-recovery-e2a-using-virtual-machine-manager/

 

Unfortunately, I haven't found any information or seen it done myself with VMWare without the use of a separate configuration server/process server.

 

That being said, you will always need to create a separate recovery vault in each of the subscription has these cannot span across multiple ones.

 

Cheers,

Stephane
