Re: Prevent a VM replica from being powered on

Yes. I have a DC replicated on my DRP site and I want to prevent this replicated VM from being powered on by my co-workers (it's on the same LAN so you guess why :twisted:).
On the target VM I try to disable my network adapter but of course it was overridden by the source at the next run of my replication job.

In the replication job we are able to change settings on the destination (host, ressource pool, VM folder and datastore) but I think it will be usefull if we can change guest settings for example to disable the network adapter on the destination VM.

My english is very poor today I don't know if it's clear, do you see what I mean?

How about just using vSphere permissions?

Yeah make sense, sometime I just need to have a different point of view.
That's a good idea I just need to change inherited administrator permission on these replicas to explicit permissions in read-only mode. Thank you Gostev! :)

Hi,

i have tried the trick to put the register Right off. But now the replica job gots an error and, everytime the job is running is veeam creating a new folder in the storage.
This Error:
Processing configuration Error: Die Berechtigung zur Durchführung dieses Vorgangs wurde verweigert.
Error: Die Berechtigung zur Durchführung dieses Vorgangs wurde verweigert.
(he permission to perform this operation was denied.)

I have an VM called TestReplikaVM
on the Replication Storage i have now

TestReplicaVM_replica
TestReplicaVM_replica_1
TestReplicaVM_replica_2
TestReplicaVM_replica_3

ans so on.

Eduard, what version of vSphere are you using? When I was working on the granular permissions doc I didn't see that behavior in my lab.

Hi Vitaly,

we use vSphere 5.5.

I did this in this way:
i copied the role "administator" then in the new role i checked out the "register" right under virtual machine -> Inventary. Then i added my backup user to this new role which i called VeeamReplica. And at last i edited the permissions on the cluster and added my user with the new role.
When i edit this role and check in the right "register" the Replica Job works fine.

Hmm... We will take a closer look at this scenario, it seems like the workaround mentioned above does not work anymore.
