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.
Log on to the Command Center.
From the navigation pane, go to Disaster recovery > Replication.
The Replication groups page appears.
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.
