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: If a continuous replication group has custom IP address settings, failover operations fail for any VMs configured with an encrypted OS disk.

    The replication group details page appears.

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