I can not seem to locate any documentation on or how to be able to place WVD into HA. IS this feature removed from WVD or am I just missing something?

There is no documentation out for HA in WVD. The service itself has HA in-built, so you don't have to do anything if there are failures on the service side. But if there are issues in the region where the VMs are built, you can use Azure Site Recovery to build fail-over VMs in a backup region. Windows Virtual Desktop recommends using Azure Site Recovery to manage replication for Azure VMs replicating between Azure regions

Hi,
Did you manage to achieve this? Did you go forward with azure site recovery or availability sets. Since ASR is more of a DR service rather than HA.
Thanks

How can I use ASR for the backend WVD VMs if when I switch over it will be in a different RG and Availability Zone/Region? How does the Broker and Web services know that the VM has been moved to a different place and now it has to redirect user requests?

 

Please elaborate. Thanks.

 

I have this same question.
