vCenter servers

Post by mdp »

Hello,

it is still required that source location and destionation location are managed by two different vcenter servers?
Or they can simply be two clusters belonging to the same vcenter?

Thanks
Regards,
Matteo

Hello,

There is no requirement for two different vCenters. We can recover VMs within a single vCenter. Depending on your environment, it might be a good idea to have a separate vCenter in the DR site; this would allow you to recover even if Production vCenter was down. However Orchestrator does not require a 2nd vCenter and will work happily in just one.

However please note that for storage failover, the clusters used should be in two different datacenters within vCenter (this is due to issues when re-mounting a datastore in datacenter where it already exists)

Hope that helps, please also see this section in our User Guide - Deployment Scenarios

Thanks!
