Get started with Azure Backup Server

In this post I will show a few simple steps to install Azure Backup Server. For more information about installation of Azure Backup Server go to the following preparation guide: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/backup-configure-vault

Create an Azure Backup Vault from the Azure Classic Portal and download the vault credentials.

Get started with Azure Backup Server 1

Download Azure Backup Server by clicking the link in the Azure Classic Portal and extract the setup files by running “MicrosoftAzureBackupInstaller.exe”.

On the server that are going to host Azure Backup Server run the following commands in PowerShell to prepare the server for the installation:
# Load module
Import-Module ServerManager -Verbose
# Install the Feature .NET Framework
Add-WindowsFeature AS-NET-Framework -Verbose
# Install the Feature .NET Framework 3.5
Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Features –Verbose

Run the following command to enable Single Instance Storage for Windows Server 2012 R2. After this command you will need to reboot.
dism /online /enable-feature:SIS-Limited

Start the installation of Azure Backup Server. The installation will install some VC++ applications and SQL Server 2014. Follow the step-by-step installation guide at the Azure documentation https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/backup-configure-vault.

When done the Azure Backup Server is installed and ready to configure for backups.
