Switching to ZRS in Recovery Service Vault: A Tech-Savvy Guide
Microsoft’s Recovery Service Vault is a crucial tool for data backup and recovery. However, moving from LRS/GRS to ZRS without preserving data can be a challenge. This blog post will guide you through the process.
Understanding the Shift
Microsoft Cloud Solutions Architect Andrew Coughlin has frequently fielded questions about this transition. Users want to know how to move their virtual machines from an LRS/GRS recovery services vault to one that supports ZRS.
Why the Change?
Important Points to Note

Quotes from Andrew Coughlin
“I have frequently received questions from customers about how to move their virtual machines from an LRS/GRS recovery services vault to a recovery services vault that supports ZRS.”
“As a reminder we have three options for storage replication for recovery services vaults: LRS – copies your data synchronously.”
