Before you configure replication for virtual machines, consider any restrictions or hypervisor-specific issues that might affect replication operations.
During a replication operation, you can only modify destination network settings for Windows VMs. Linux VMs are replicated without network connections.
If you select a specific VM for replication, the GUID of the source VM is used to identify the VM for replication. If the GUID of the source VM changes, the VM is not replicated. This situation can occur when a VM with the same name is added on the hypervisor for the source VM. To resolve this issue, remove the VM from the replication group and then add it back.
For replicated VMs using source snapshots, failback operations are supported only when replication is configured in the Command Center.
Periodic replication is not supported for the Cisco HyperFlex and Tintri snap engines.
For VSA snap engine (VVol) replication, the failback operation is a full resync to the source.
Incremental failback resync operations are supported only from streaming VMware backups.
