Post by vfrolov »

Hello,

Is it possible to disable auto-starting VM while Failover to replica so that it willl be possible to change VM options before starting?

Thanks,

Vyacheslav.

I think there is a registry key that allows modifying replica VMX before failover, but I need to double check.

What about disable auto start of the VM on the source server while doing replica?
In case we run a planned failover and the source host (where the replicate is replicated FROM) gets an power outage and restarts, the Vms will auto-start and then cause both server to be online.
Maybe a check mark in the replica job settings which says "turn off auto start on source host" while doing the failover?
