Limitations of Azure Arc-enabled PostgreSQL
This article describes limitations of Azure Arc-enabled PostgreSQL.
The latest updates are available in the release notes.
Configuring high availability to recover from infrastructure failures isn't yet available.
Currently, local monitoring with Grafana is only available for the default
postgres database. Metrics dashboards for user created databases will be empty.
System configurations that are stored in
postgresql.auto.conf are backed up when a base backup is created. This means that changes made after the last base backup, will not be present in a restored server until a new base backup is taken to capture those changes.
Roles and responsibilities
The roles and responsibilities between Microsoft and its customers differ between Azure managed services (Platform As A Service or PaaS) and Azure hybrid (like Azure Arc-enabled PostgreSQL).
