Hello, I have backup policy to backup all azure VM with some retention set. If i see we can start the backup by navigating to specific VM - Operation - Backup, and when we click 'Backup Now' we must 'retain backup till'. My question is this backup will do the full backup and use different backup policy than existing retention policy on recovery service vault?

    Hi, As per the official documentation "the retention range for an on-demand backup is the retention value that you specify when you trigger the backup.". So, on-demand backup will be retained only for the specified period defined not according to policy.
