Public preview: Cross Subscription Restore for Azure Virtual Machines

Published date: November 22, 2022

We are delighted to announce the preview of Cross Subscription Restore of Azure Virtual machines. Cross Subscription Restore allows you to restore Azure Virtual Machine, through create new or restore disks, to any subscription (honoring the RBAC capabilities) from the restore point created by Azure Backup. By default, Azure Backup restores to the same subscription where the restore points are available. With this new feature, you can gain the flexibility of restoring to any subscription under your tenant if restore permissions are available. You can trigger Cross Subscription Restore for managed Azure Virtual Machines only from vault and not from snapshots. Cross Subscription Restore is also supported for Restore with Managed System Identities (MSI)It is unsupported for Encrypted Azure VMs and Trusted Launch VMs.
