Hands-On Lab

In this hands-on lab, we configure Azure storage for backups. We also walkthrough configuring a VM backup policy. Then we go ahead and break a Windows VM (everyone's favorite activity!) and show how to restore from a backup.

It's strongly recommended to have at least an hour to dedicate to this lab, as several of the tasks take quite some time to perform.


  • The virtual machine and related Azure resources have been renamed for this lab. Please review the first objective for more details on the lab suffix for this lab.
  • At 3:43 of the solution video, when choosing the VM to back up, you are only presented with one option. As of 3/1/2020, there will be more than one VM in this list. Use the search bar at the top of the list to choose your virtual machine.-
