At one of my costumer Azure Subscription, I was adding a new virtual machine to the existing Azure Recovery Vault previously configured, when I run into this error:


I found very odd, why this message appears. So, I start to review the Recovery Vault configuration and I realize this Recovery Vault only had one backup policy. Then I start to investigate if this was a soft limit or hard limit on Azure. I found this article

After a few moments I realize this is a limitation of Azure. Then I start to work on the resolution. In this case, was a very simple resolution. Just create a new backup policy, and then you have another 100 more VMs to assign to that backup policy.
