Performing a Failback for a Continuous Replication Pair

Updated

On this page

After a successful failover, you can perform a failback operation to reestablish replication operations. During a failback operation, all changes to the destination VM are synced back to the source VM. If IP customization is applied during the failover operation, it is removed during the failback operation.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Disaster recovery > Replication Monitor.

    The Replication Monitor page appears.

  2. On the Continuous tab, in the row for the replication pair that you want to fail back, click the action button , and then select Failback.

Results

After the failback job completes, the following events occur:

  • The source VM is turned on again and a resync operation runs to reestablish replication operations.

  • On the Continuous Replication Monitor, the Synchronization status displays Re-syncing.

  • Replication operations resume on the source VM.

  • On the Continuous Replication Monitor, the Synchronization status displays Replicating.
