Replicating a Periodic Replication Group On-Demand


You can run a replication job for all replication pairs in a replication group on-demand. Periodic replication groups replicate from source VMs to destination VMs on a regular schedule, but you can run an immediate replication job for the entire replication group.

Before You Begin

Create a periodic replication group.

Note: You cannot customize IP address settings for VMs with encrypted disks. If you configure custom IP address settings for a replication group that includes VMs with encrypted disks, failover operations fail for those VMs.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Disaster Recovery.

    The Replication groups page appears.

  2. Under Group name, click a replication group.

    The replication group details page appears.

  3. On the Overview tab, in the upper-right area of the page, click Replicate now.

    The Replicate now dialog box appears.

  4. Click Yes.
