Testing Failover

A Test Failover operation validates the failover operation for a group of VMs by live mounting replicated VMs that are part of a failover group to a test site.

Before You Begin

  • Create a replication target that includes test failover options.
  • Create a failover group that identifies the VMs to be included. The failover group must specify a replication target that supports test failover operations.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Configuration > Failover groups.

    The Failover groups page appears.

  2. Under the Actions column, click the action_button icon and select Test failover.


When the test failover operation completes successfully, the users who was configured to receive notifications for failovers receives an email notification that provides a summary of the test failover operation and a link that can be used to access the failover group.
