  1. Update for Azure Backup for Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent:
    I tried to install this on one of my Windows Server 2012 R2 core with Hyper-V role installed, but i wouldn’t let me upload the vault key after installation because MMC’s not installed. I comes with a warning that you can manage it with CMDLETs, couldn’t find i documented anywhere. I ended up installing the minimal GUI, and then I got it to work.
