Microsoft Azure Backup Server - ALR - Does the recovery process shut down the source machine?

Alix 96 Reputation points

Hi All,

My aim is to recover one of our production VM's using MABS. As the machine is in use, and I want it to stay in use during and after the recovery process, I am looking at restoring to an alternative location. The below article states:

"Alternate location recovery (ALR) - When the original VM is missing, or you don't want to disturb the original VM, recover the VM to an alternate location."

I am worried as I know if you are doing an ASR from Hyper-V the source machine is turned off. Can I confirm if the source machine is left untouched with MABS ALR?

Any and all help is very much appreciated,
