Working with the Azure Backup Agent

Updated: September 19, 2014

Microsoft Azure Backup allows for file and folder backups from your server to a backup vault in Azure Recovery Services. Microsoft Azure Backup can be used to create backup schedules that can be run on a regular schedule or that can be run immediately using Backup Now to create an initial backup. You can use Microsoft Azure Backup to back up files and folders from a server running Windows Server 2012.

For additional information about Microsoft Azure Backup, see Azure Backup Overview.

Microsoft Azure Backup is administered on the local server using the Azure Backup Agent. The Azure Backup Agent is responsible for backing up the data from your local server and sending it to Microsoft Azure Backup. The Azure Backup Agent includes a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that can be used to perform common administrative tasks.

There are a full set of Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Microsoft Azure Backup that you can use. For more information about how to do this, see Administer Azure Backup with Windows PowerShell.

After the Azure Backup Agent is installed on your server, you will be able to manage Microsoft Azure Backup from either the Computer Management MMC snap-in or from the Azure Backup MMC snap-in.

  1. In the Windows Server Backup tool, click Register Server to start the Server Registration Wizard and register the server with Microsoft Azure Backup. See Register Servers with Azure Backup for a step-by-step description of this procedure.

  2. After the registration is completed, the MMC will display additional actions in the Action pane.

  3. Choose the Schedule Backup action to start the Schedule Backup Wizard. Completing the Schedule Backup Wizard establishes the initial backup configuration for the server. See Schedule Backups Using the Azure Backup Agent for a step-by-step description of this procedure.

  4. After the initial configuration is complete, click Backup Now to run the backup immediately instead of waiting for the scheduled time for the first backup to occur.

  5. If you want to recover data from Microsoft Azure Backup, click Recover Data to start the Recover Data Wizard, and choose a recovery point to restore on your server. See Recover Files and Folders Using the Azure Backup Agent for a step-by-step description of this procedure.

  6. Click Change properties if you need to change the individual server properties that are used to control how that server interacts with Microsoft Azure Backup. There are three tabs with settings that you can modify as needed:

    • Proxy Configuration. The Proxy Configuration tab allows Microsoft Azure Backup to use a proxy server to connect to the service over the Internet. Selecting Use a proxy server for Azure Backup allows for the configuration of the address and port of the proxy server to be used. If credentials are required to use the proxy server, you can select the This proxy server requires authentication check box and enter the proper credentials. This setting applies only to Microsoft Azure Backup. Other applications, such as your web browser, will still retain their existing proxy server configuration settings.

    • Throttling. The Throttling tab allows for control of network usage during specific day and time intervals. After you select the Enable internet bandwidth usage throttling for backup check box, you can configure how Azure Backup Agent utilizes the network bandwidth when backing up or restoring information. Throttling uses two settings, work hours and non-work hours, to moderate the use of the network bandwidth during backup operations. You then define the work days and work hours range during which the work hours bandwidth limit should be applied. The non-work hours limit will be used at all other times. Valid bandwidth ranges are from 256 kilobytes per second (Kbps) to 1023 megabytes per second (Mbps) for both limits.
