Testing a Failover for an Array Replication Test Failover Group

You can test a failover operation using an array replication test failover group.

In a test failover, the following events occur:

  • A clone is created from the snapshot on the destination filer.
  • Datastores are created on the destination vCenter.
  • VMs are registered, customization is performed, and then the VMs are powered on.


  1. Log on to the Command Center.
  2. From the navigation pane, go to Disaster recovery > Replication.

    The Replication groups page appears.

  3. On the Failover groups tab, in the Name column, right-click a test failover group for replicated arrays, and then select Test failover.

    The Test failover page appears.

  4. Click Yes.
