Failback on version 5

Post by gsilva »


How do you perform a failback with version 5?

Version 6 has a built-in failback, but we are still using version 5 and just got to the point where we are now able to successfully replicate to a DR site every two hours, so we are now ready to test a failback.

There is not "failback" with version 5. You can "undo failover" which effectively throws away everything on the remote side. Or you can create a new replication job and replicate the VM back. I would strongly suggest upgrading to V6 as the replication improvements are significant, not just with failback, but Re-IP, traffic compression, robustness, pretty much everything.
