vmware DR site
Posted on 2011-09-11
OK, we are currently doing DR testing and we will perform a DR test with our production environment unaffected. We have SAN mirroring to our DR site and we plan to break that mirror and put the DR SAN in read/write. I have made a powerCLI script to add my desired VM's to the DR inventory, however I am concerned that the replicated data(VM files) on the DR san may be in some state not allowing me to "add to inventory" on the DR site.
This is because we do not shut down the production enviroment before stopping the SAN mirror. There will be no LAN or SAN connectivity between the production and test environment during this testing, and as long as I am able to add the VM's to the DR inventory I will be good to go.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Ask if something is unclear.
