Hi There!


I have Vmware vm backed up on-premises and auxiliary copy to Azure cloud library. When I try recovery a VMs that I supposed already transferred data to azure, I’m able to see bandwidth on firewall ports increase. So I think this scenario report a local data recovery to azure.

I’d like to recovery data that already on azure cloud ( that was transfer by auxiliary copy).


Someone could hep me with this steps?

Have you checked the copy precedence of the restore you are running to make sure it’s pointing to the other copy?

@NelsonBalbo , how are you initiating the restore?  Are you browsing the client or browsing jobs on the Aux Copy directly?

You likely have Copy Precedence set to the local copy:

Hi @Mike Struening and @Aplynx,


after apply your recommendation “copy Precedence”, job restore not consume firewall bandwidth!


Thanks for all!!!
