I have managed to create a DR of a couple virtual machines to Azure. I am using Azure site recovery and Azure resource manager, and I followed this manual about how to do this https://www.starwindsoftware.com/blog/azure-azure-site-recovery-with-arm-replication-and-failover-failback.

When I was doing unplanned failover of the virtual machine, it said that unplanned failover failed. Error id is 70136:

Possible causes The operation was cancelled or the recovery point is not available for failover. Recommendation Wait for a while and retry the operation.

I try to search the solution, but not successful. Any solution? P.S. sorry for my not good English.

There are a couple of technet threads about this, one of them for example. I'd suggest you to collect the logs and contact Azure support, or, at least ask for the status of this thread.

UPD: just ran through this guide, and the failover runs smooth. I guess, it is a specific error related to your configuration.

  • Thanks, I tried to reinstall this configuration from the begin, and it is working now. If it will be a problem again, I will try to submit a question to Azure support. Commented Jan 5, 2018 at 9:52
