An update is now available from Microsoft for the Azure Recovery Services Agent. The update provides some reliability fixes, but also delivers some new features.
New features added:
- Extended retention range. Customers can now keep recovery points for up to nine years if a recovery point is configured on time in four weeks.
- Simpler Agent registration. Improves the experience by allowing customers download vault credentials instead of manually creating a certificate and uploading it to the Azure portal first.
- Support for Windows Server 2012 R2 CORE SKUs
