    Hello @Dylan Sheth - Thank you for reaching out!

    You need a cache storage account in the source network. During replication, VM changes are stored in the cache before being sent to target storage. Cache storage accounts must be Standard.

    Using a cache ensures minimal impact on production applications that are running on a VM.

    Learn more about cache storage requirements.

    To change default cache storage account, select Advanced settings. Refer to - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/azure-to-azure-quickstart#enable-replication-for-the-azure-vm

    @Wacar Hussain You need to grant Contributor and Storage Blob Data Contributor role to the vault. Reference doc link - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/hybrid-how-to-enable-replication-private-endpoints#grant-required-permissions-to-the-vault
