Replicating to Multiple Destination Sites

Updated

You can use a VM group to configure a replication operation to copy data to multiple destination sites.

After you create a replication group, you can configure additional destination sites using the VM group that was created automatically when you created the replication group. The VM group name is the same as the replication group name.

    The Virtual machines page appears.

  2. On the VM groups tab, click the VM group with the same name as the replication group.

  3. Under Actions, click the Actions button , and then select Configure replication.

    The Configure replication group wizard appears.

  4. On the Content tab, specify the VMs from the replication group that you want to replicate to an additional destination site.

    • In the Name box, enter a name for the group.

    • From the Select VMs list, select the VMs, and then click Next.

  5. On the Target tab, specify the access node and settings for the destination site.

    • From the Recovery target list, select a hypervisor.

    • From the Access node list, select the access node that you want to use as a destination site, and then configure any additional options that you want to use.

    • Click Next.

  6. On the Override options tab, specify any override options that you want to configure.

    • If you want to use override settings, click Yes, configure the options you want to use, and then click Next.
