Removing ASR Protection (V2 in the new Azure Portal)

Once you are done with your ASR pilot, there is a certain order you should take to properly disconnect your on-premises Hyper-V host.

The first general rule is: do not remove the agent before cleaning up things in the portal. It is going to be harder. Start by deleting the configuration in this order.

– Unprotect any VMs you may be protecting:

1. Go to Replicated items in the Azure portal:

This will disable the protection only but if needed, this machine will be still manageable later.

Wait until the protection is disabled:

Now for the Hyper-V server. Click on Site Recovery server:

Then select your Hyper-V server:

Click Delete and OK.

This will remove the configuration from the local Hyper-V host.

Now you would be ready to reconfigure your host, but I will go all the way and remove the agents from it:

And you are in the clear! Hope this helps!
