We have a barracuda NG hosted in Azure, as a classic resource.
Trying to use the built in backup mechanism in Azure, which uses the VMSnapshotLinux extension does not work.
I confirmed through Microsoft support that only linux distributions listed here can support the backup process:
Is there any way to architect taking a disk snapshot, or performing some other process, that allows you to recreate a barracuda image in Azure from some stored data?
Point of the question is we had a barracuda NG that was recently left in a mixed stated after an update, and our only recourse was to build a new VM from a marketplace barracuda image. While that allows us to restore configuration, the actual process of having to recreate endpoints in Azure (among many other issues)made the recovery process a many hours endeavor.
Wondering if anyone else has come across this inability to do automated backups in Azure, and if anyone has any solutions they have developed.
