Getting an error while changing Standard to Enhanced backup policy : Deployment Fails with terminal provisioning state 'Failed'.

I have a standard policy specified for Backup of Azure VM, want to change to Enhanced policy to take multiple backups a day. Whenever, I try to change the policy, it goes through the process of Modifying protection and fails with "The resource operation completed with terminal provisioning state 'Failed'.".

Please assist.

    Hello @GB Tech, Inc Thank you for posting your concern on Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to help!

    Based on the information provided, I understand that you are trying to enable Backup for an Azure VM and hit an error :"The resource write operation failed to complete successfully, because it reached terminal provisioning state 'Failed'."

    To enable Azure Backup with Enhanced Policy for an Azure VM, you need to ensure that the VM is in a healthy state and meets the prerequisites for backup. The error message "The resource write operation failed to complete successfully, because it reached terminal provisioning state 'Failed'" indicates that the VM provisioning has failed. You need to troubleshoot the VM provisioning failure before you can enable Azure Backup with Enhanced Policy.

    To troubleshoot the VM provisioning failure, you can check the VM provisioning logs in the Azure portal. You can also check the VM's resource health in the Azure portal to see if there are any issues with the VM's underlying resources. Once you have resolved the VM provisioning failure, you can then enable Azure Backup with Enhanced Policy for the VM.

    Note: Refer to a Similar discussion here - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1631690/azure-backup-with-enhanced-policy-cant-be-enabled

    Solution: Instant Recovery Days and Daily Retention were both set to 7 days. After setting Instant Recovery Days to 5 it worked.

    Hope this helps. If you have any further questions or need more information, please let us know.
