Question

We've been trying to follow the steps in this article:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/site-recovery-vmware-to-azure-classic/#step-5-install-the-management-server

We have progressed as far as the end of Step 5, but seem to be unable to complete this section:

WARNING:

Microsoft Azure Recovery Service Agent's proxy needs to be setup. Once the installation is complete launch an application named "Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Shell" from the Windows Start menu. In the command window that opens up run the following set of commands to setup the proxy server settings.

$pwd = ConvertTo-SecureString -String ProxyUserPassword
Set-OBMachineSetting -ProxyServer http://myproxyserver.domain.com -ProxyPort PortNumb – ProxyUserName domain\username -ProxyPassword $pwd
net stop obengine.exe

It's reads as though we should just copy and paste this into the Shell, which, doesn't work. Therefore we assume we must replace some of the fields with information specific to us. The article doesn't specify this however.

Thanks,

Prov.

Hi Prov,

Please try this command by replacing the highlighted with your details.

$pwd = ConvertTo-SecureString -String ProxyUserPassword Set-OBMachineSetting -ProxyServer http://myproxyserver.domain.com -ProxyPort PortNumb – ProxyUserName domain\username -ProxyPassword $pwd net stop obengine.exe

Thanks & Regards,

Navaharsha Gutta.

Thanks.

To clarify, is the proxy being referred to the Management Server?

Is there a default port number in use upon configuration, or can this be manually amended?

Hi Prov,

One quick question do you have some proxy configured in your network?

Generally we need port 443 for communication. Just for your information please find the network diagram in the link:-
