In the Previous posts, We have discussed about configuring and provisioning storage to the ESXi hosts. we have created management group, created volumes and allocated storage to ESXi. Next step is configure HP StoreVirtual VSA replication between your Protected site and DR site. So that, whatever VM’s placed on the protected volume will be replicated to the DR volume. This background storage replication will be used by SRM to move the virtual machines from protected site to recovery site.
Configuring HP StoreVirtual VSA Replication
To configure the replication, Right-click the volume in your primary site and Select “New Schedule to Remote Snapshot a Volume”
Specify the replication Schedule name and select your DR site management group and DR site volume under Remote Snaphot setup. You can configure replication recurrence and maximum time to retain a snapshot and click on ok.
Once you have configured the replication, you can notice in HP StoreVirtual VSA CMC, replication will be established between your Production site and DR site.
That’s it. We are done with configuring HP StoreVirtual VSA Replication. In the upcoming posts, we will discuss in detail about installing Storage replication adapters and configure array managers in SRM and then about configuring various resource mappings. I hope this is informative for you. Thanks for Reading!!!. Be social and share it in social media, if you feel worth sharing it.
