In this video I will walk you through the set of steps for creating a Recovery Services vault and backing up an Azure virtual machine (VM). This tutorial is for use with Recovery Services vaults which can be used to protect IaaS v.2 or Azure Resource Manager (ARM)-based VMs. We will use the new Azure Portal for this.

Here are the specific steps I will walk through:

  1. Create a Recovery Services vault for a VM.
  2. Set the backup policy
  3. Select the VMs to protect.
  4. Run the initial backup.
