Creating a Replication Group Using the Replication Group Wizard
Applies to: VMware source to VMware destination
To replicate VMs, you can create a replication group using the replication group wizard to perform either periodic or continuous replication operations.
Before You Begin
- Review the configuration options for the source and destination hypervisors, including options for adding a hypervisor, adding a recovery target, and configuring a replication group:
- Verify that the Command Center has a storage pool that can be used as a temporary cache for the VMs before they move to the destination site. You can use disk, cloud, tape, or a HyperScale storage pool as the temporary cache. For more information, see Storage.
- For information about using replication groups in a Managed Service Provider (MSP) environment, see Requirements for Replication Groups in Managed Service Provider.
- From the navigation pane, go to Disaster recovery > Replication.
The Replication groups page appears.
- In the upper-right area of the tab, click Configure replication group, and then select Virtualization.
The Configure replication group page appears.
- On the Content tab, enter the required information for the source hypervisor, and then click Next.
- On the Target tab, enter the required information for the destination hypervisor, and then click Next.
- On the Storage/Cache tab, enter the required information for the storage pool, and then click Next.
- To override settings for VMs, on the Override options tab, click Yes.
- To change the destination settings for VMs, from the Virtual machine list, select the VMs, and then under General Settings, configure the options you want to change.
- Click Next.
- On the Summary tab, review the settings you configured, and then click Finish.
- The wizard creates a replication schedule and a replication group that includes the selected source VMs.
- The properties page for a replication group includes a Replication monitor page that you can use to monitor the replication status and to perform operations.
