we are working in a DR project, with limeted budget for that matter.

i replace old admin and i am new at the job.

there are one v-center at the HQ  and one at the DR site

the VMFS (3 and 5) of VMware are replicated using Replication manager via EMC clarion storage.

there is no SRM product.

the old admin told me that if i mount the replicated VMFS LUN in the DR site (to test if all ok), i will no longer be able to replicated the LUNS to the other site sine the parrallel LUN in the other side will be "locked" and no incremetal replication can occure in the matter.

it that true?
is there away to continue to replicated the changes eche night will the VM are up and running at the other side? (to know the replication is ok)

using replication manager and clarion and i mentioned.
