Running Orchestration Jobs

You can perform failover, test boot, or failback operations for groups or for specific machines.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, click Configuration > Failover groups.

    The Failover groups page appears.

  2. From the Actions column for a group, click action_button and then select an action to perform on the group:
    • Delete (VMware and Amazon destination sites)
    • Failback (VMware and Amazon destination sites)

      Note: For replicated VMs from VMware IntelliSnap backups (Live Sync Direct), failback operations are supported only when replication is configured in the Admin Console.

    • Planned failover (VMware and Amazon destination sites)
    • Test boot (only for VMware destination sites)

      After failing over to a secondary site, you can also perform a test boot operation to the primary site.

    • Test failover (only for VMware destination sites)
    • Unplanned failover (VMware and Amazon destination sites)

    Depending on the status of each machine, some failover options might not be completed on all VMs.

  3. From the page for a failover group, you can choose failover or failback operations for specific machines.

    The options that are available depend on the current status of the machine. For example, you can request a failback for a machine that has failed over.

  4. From the Replication monitor page, you can choose failover or failback operations for specific machines.

    The options that are available depend on the current status of the machine. For example, you can request a failback for a machine that has failed over.

You can view the progress of orchestration jobs in the Jobs page.
