Hi;

I have been working on Disaster Recovery Scenario, I have two host, Host1, Host2. Host 2 have two Virtual machines and two replica of this machines. Rep1, Rep2. When Host 2 is corrupt can I failover Rep2 on Host1, is this possible. I don't success this, I get error. Thanks...

Hi,

First of all, why to keep VMs and their replicas on the same host? To be able to failover to Host 1 you should setup replication job to replicate VMs from Host 2 to Host 1, otherwise if Host 2 fails the replicas will die as well.

I don't success this, I get error.
What kind of error did you get? Please describe all actions that you've performed, step by step.

Thank you.

Nope, you cannot do that, since corrupted host contains both original VM and its replica. Thanks.

Hi,

I understand what you means. When I differ original vm and replica vm locations it worked. Thanks...

That's the recommend setup, indeed. Glad that you've figured that out.
