I'm a beginner with VRO and a client asked me :
- Is it possible for VRO to detect a failure on an esxi cluster and launch himself (without human's actions) a recorvery plan ?
I found nothing in the documentation about that.
Normally the VRO is used to :
- Plan DR
- Automate the process and the documentation and the test

We do not include an automatic failover in VRO, because of the risks inherent in that. For example, if vCenter goes offline - should we launch a full DR plan and recover to another site, or is this just a minor network outage between VRO and vCenter?
There are usually consequences to running a DR plan, at least a service outage while recovery runs, so we do not have any automation around that. It should be a human-approved decision.
However, that said, we do have a fully-featured REST API for remote control of recovery plans in VRO. This could be integrated into monitoring solutions and specific events could be used to trigger a plan automatically. So it is possible with some additional configuration to accomplish this.
Hope this helps, any further questions let us know!
