You have three application virtual machines (VMs) hosted in one region in Azure. You plan to prepare a strategy that will create backups for all data from the VMs. The backup will occur every day at 1 A.M. on each VM.
You need to ensure that the data is protected upon configuring the solution. You want to minimize the required administrative effort.
Which three actions should you perform in sequence? To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of possible actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.
You should perform the following steps in order:
1. Create a Recovery Services vault.
2. Define a backup policy to protect the VMs.
3. Perform the initial backup.
First, you create a Recovery Services vault to contain the backup data and the backup policy.
Then, you define the backup policy to protect the VMs, which defines when and how often recovery points are taken.
Finally, you perform an initial backup. It is disaster recovery best practice to trigger the first backup so that your data is protected.
You should not define a separate backup policy for each VM. To minimize administrative effort, you should create only one policy to apply to all VMs.
Unless you plan to perform backups manually, you should not create a storage account for files. Recovery Services manages the files internally.
