Phoenix Editions: Business Enterprise Elite
This topic lists the Phoenix limitations and AWS limitations that apply to Phoenix DRaaS.
- You cannot identify the OS remote access and the checks for virtual machines deployed before the DRaaS release.
- We do not recommend using CloudCache for virtual machines configured for disaster recovery.
Phoenix DRaaS uses AWS import service to convert the virtual machines backup images to AMIs.
- AWS does not support import image operations for virtual machines having a GPT-partitioned boot disk.
- Disaster recovery restore fails for a disk with REFS file system (Windows 2K12 and later). AWS does not support REFS file system.
- Windows Virtual Machine Import/Export supports the MBR-partitioned volumes that are formatted using the NTFS file system. GUID Partition Table (GPT) partitioned volumes are not supported.
- Linux Virtual Machine Import/Export supports the MBR-partitioned volumes that are formatted using ext2, ext3, ext4, Btrfs, JFS, or XFS file system. GUID Partition Table (GPT) partitioned volumes are not supported.
- AWS does not support bootable disks greater than 2 TB for disaster recovery due to MBR limitations. AWS supports only the MBR-partitioned bootable disks.
